I own a complete UPB home that is controlled by HAI and have had this configuration for years without one issue. I have 42 UPB devices in total. When I moved from X-10, which I had for many years prior along with it's growing pains, I could not have been happier. When Insteon came on the market, I simply looked at it as an extended X-10 and still do (probably unfairly). Insteon still has not been widely accepted in the integration community. It is OK for the DIY.
I closely follow both ZigBee and ZWave and like where they are both moving. I think that both of the Z options are more forward thinking and have more potential then either Insteon or UPB. I have no clue who will come out on top.
Like I said, many solutions here.
Would/is Cinemar able to control zigbee lighting devices? If not, is there a plan to do so at some point in the future?
