Long time reader, new poster


New Member
First of all, thanks to all the long time posters. Plenty of times my project questions have been answered through posts already on Coocontech.

I am a long time X-10 user / geek, and have recently switched everything over to INSTEON. I absolutely love the stuff. Great functionality, great price, especially compared with what I have lived through with X-10 stuff.

I too, like many of the posters am anxious for new products but I am not in a panic over it. Plenty of new technologies have gone through this same curve. In fact, I am just now starting up a whole house media server and control project. Here is an area littered with confusion, buggy software, unfullfilled promises, and delayed product introductions... ugh.

As for my home control system, I have a dedicated PC running Smarthome's HouseLinc software, and about 82 INSTEON nodes. The stuff has been rock solid, allowing me more time to switch my focus to the media stuff. I have not read through all the home theater forum, but I am sure it contains a wealth of knowledge. I look forward to digging in.
Welcome aboard ;) Since you are familiar with the site already, there is no need to explain anything, but glad to see you finally signed up!
