NO RATINGS
reposting, 'cause I'm not sure what's happening (apologies if already posted):

Agreed in general wrt 6loPAN et al revolution precipice, but question: I'm interested in different markets, and obviously a not-insignificant market exists outside the realm of customers served by traditional building automation people--what I'm getting at is cost on, let's say, "RF system cost" for each "POL" (which could be an individual lamp or luminaire). Currently, COTS components are available in the budget of aforementioned building automation-scale people, but they're still not--ok, I'll be crude: X10 still exists and is in some sort of wide use (granted, in only 1 particular niche vertical, but my point is, if those such individuals can afford a 'house-wide' deployment, then we've removed acquisition cost from the list of issues for everyone else). Oh, question: any ideas, sense about anything happening to change that? (could be company, concept, massive tipping point trend; anything)
