    Default Who wants Z-Wave? Put your hands up!

    I'm interested to gauge the interest in Z-Wave.

    I'm convinced that people are not buying Z-Wave, not because they don't like it, but because the future stocking and supply is so, well, limp.

    I am almost done building my home and would love to buy 10-30 wall light switches, and dimmers that would control my whole house fans.

    The best supplier I've found so far is http://www.automatedoutlet.com out in Dallas, USA.

    Fire off an e-mail to them to check stock availability. Whereas most suppliers I've spoken to give uncertain delivery dates, these chaps at least seem to have a steady flow of UK modules.

    I'd be interested to know how you get on with sourcing the light switches as I believe they are rarer than the modules!

    You may want to wait until Q4/04 and look out for the http://www.icom-technology.com stuff looks very nice.

    We're restocked again. I hope the supply gets better in the future.

    I've been dabbling with a few X10 modules for the last 6 months or so and have been very disappointed by it's "clunky" nature and idiosyncratic operation. Fine 10 years ago, but really do deserve better now.

    The Z-Wave stuff sounds interesting and I look forward to greater availability of modules, particularly the Icom Technologies stuff.

    I feel an order for a controller a couple of plug modules is called for, to have a play!

    I have been using the Zwave stuff with Homeseer for about 2-3 months now and I like it a lot.

    The only downside for me is not being able to use the remote control with Homeseer, but I believe this is being looked at for the future.

    I will certainly be replacing all my X10 modules with Zwave devices.

    I think that link doesn't work (anymore) http://www.automatedoutlet.com/produ...cat=121&page=1

    Anyway, are these units CE approved? Are they "legal" in Europe?
