read the full article at http://www.cepro.com/news/editorial/17862.htmlLutron is suing Leviton for infringing on patents that have to do with wall-box dimmers, RF transceivers in a junction box, and lighting control with two-way status/feedback.
The lawsuit is no surprise, really. It was only a matter of time. Apparently, that time was when Leviton finally shipped its two-way Vizia RF lighting control system based on the Z-Wave mesh-networking wireless protocol.
The alleged infringement would also apply to Monster Cable, which is OEMing the products for its IlluminEssence line of lighting controls.
I didn't want to mess up the nice formatting, links & pictures.
