  1. Ridiculously expensive!

    No wonder its taking so long for Z-wave to get any traction with prices like this and the ‘starter’ kits are even worse!

    Not for me sorry. Rip off in my opinion

  2. Chris – Z-Wave in the UK (like any other new product) is in the chicken and egg phase.

    Prices will only come down once people start buying it in decent quantities – and of course people will only start to do that when the prices come down.

    Just like those fancy hight performance electric cars, we need early adopters to buy the $100K+ ones so the rest of us can benefit from the cheaper ones down the line.

    Z-Wave sockets at £30 might still be more than you’re personally prepared to pay, but they’ve come down from over £50 at the start. I certainly don’t think it’s fair to start using phrases like ‘rip off’ here.

    M.

  3. I agree with Chris, too much money. Ever heard of loss leaders?
