It would be the Compose stuff and probably the firewall stuff. I would think that I'll at least be able to beat Worthington's prices on them. I'll know more the first part of next week. I do think that they will give me some pretty good pricing. I'll also have an advantage that they are local so I could get anything the have, even if I don't stock it, right away.
Yes, I was really impressed with their demo. Even if you don't go to the extent of using their firewall (which looks really nice!), if you use their standard compose switches, you do get some additional functionality over other good 2-way switches - easier programming, nightlight dimming options (4 levels), viewing of preset dimming, etc. I haven't done all of the numbers yet, but it looks like they would be about 20-30% more per switch. They also do make a 3 speed switch for ceiling fans.
I'll do that. Yes, it works with HomeSeer. There's a plug-in for it. I think HS charges about $50 for it but I can get it for a little less.
The switches are dual mode. They can work on either standard x10 signals or the compose protocol. The firewall can also be a useful thing to have even if you aren't using the compose switches. It eliminates noise, eliminates the need for couplers, manages x10 collisions and re-broadcasts the signals if they occur, and boosts the x10 signals up to 7 volts.
I'll know more next week. I'll be in training all day Friday and Saturday.
Wow, that sounds pretty cool, particularly the firewall.
Too bad I really wont be in the market for anything like that for another 9 years or so (That's about when I envision I'll be within 4 years of retirement [from the military, not full-blown retirement], at my final duty station, and finally able to build my dreamhome instead of moving every couple of years like I do now!!)
