I don't know. I didn't pay too much attention to the announcement. Are you thinking of carrying the line? I couldn't find a place to buy it online or prices. Is it truly X-10 compatible? What makes it better than X-10 stuff? Or is it just X-10 tolerant?
Well, I did a little research.

It is all purely X10 standard except for the RF devices are on a different frequency. These products were made for B&D last year by X10. B&D decided not to go to market with them and are now clearing them out.

I ordered 30 kits in here as a test.

On Monday, Smarthome will begin carrying them as well. I think the starter kit will have a Smarthome part number of "1164".
Interesting... Is this just a wall module kit or is it going to be appliances? I saw a few lamps and fans that turned on with a remote buti was not sure how they werebeing turned on.
