Looks like only 1 outlet is controllable? But for $10, these can be pretty useful. Looks like this is a a 5th gen product (Z-Wave Plus), made by Cooper Wiring, so quality shouldn't be bad. Would make a great repeater indeed, and useful for non-dimmable loads.

According to BrickSeek (not always accurate), this looks like a very localized pricing change. At $10, I would definitely get a bunch, especially if you're still building your network.

I grabbed the two they had. Lowes says the store on the other side of town, 45 minutes one way, has one. They probably don't have it and in any case I am not driving that far for it. Thanks for the feedback!
