AspireRF said they will be shipping in June.
June might be the official word but I had the Cooper rep sitting in my office saying that he would be surprised if it came out by the end of summer. Don't hold your breath.
I assume these are now available?
Cooper just made an announcement that the product will ship in limited quantities this month with full roll out in 2008.

Cooper has been re-using this release for at least a couple of years now.
At Cedia I asked the Cooper guy demoing the product in the EI demo house when the product would actually ship. He told me 60 days which would be right around this week as it turns out. I then commented that I had been hearing this for two years now and what made this particular 60 days any different from the previous ones? I also asked what were the obstacles to getting the product on the market that had delayed it for so long? If you've ever dealt with a corporate marketing droid you can guess what kind of an answer I received.
BTW, I never actually saw them operate the product during the press tour. This contrasts to Lutron HomeWorks® where the Lutron marketing rep actually pushed some buttons and turned on lights and lowered shades which caused a certain amount of surprise in other parts of the house.

If you are seriously considering installing visia/aspire/whatever zwave in your house my advice is to have an installer come out and do a pilot installation first just to prove out the products and the technology. IIRC you have north of 100 controlled lights and should represent a large enough installation to make that worth their while. Pick a representative sized network and make sure that the nodes are dispersed enough that multi-hop routing is required. Also test the dead/missing node scenario. At the very least you should get a good set of design guidelines should you decide to do the install yourself.
