Where does this fit as a comparison to Insteon? All five pages of that appendix is spent nit-picking any minor flaw in every ZWave product.The Intermatic display is always on, but the HomePro display turns off entirely after you have not pushed a button for several seconds. Pushing any button turns the HomePro display back on, but then you wonder, did the button you pushed only turn on the display or did it also perform the buttonâ€™s function?
I am one of the most paranoid people I know (I always line my hats with aluminum foil to block out the government's evil mind control rays) and even I don't see any great need for high security in a lighting protocol. Even if somebody decided they wanted to hijack my living room lamp (unlikely) I'm pretty sure the thrill would wear off quickly for the hijacker so it probably would not pose an ongoing threat.rocco said:And there is no comparison of the security of the different protocols. The paper constantly derides ZWave's Master-Remote, which is an important ingredient to it's security, but not once does it acknowledge this. I'm sure it's because Insteon has no security.
I would like at least a little security with my door locks . . .But what kind of network does it take to link together commodity devices like light switches, door locks, remote controls, and thermostats?
