Default Remote monitor control temp humidity I/O WebControl X10RF

http://www.ebay.com bid

http://www.ebay.com buy it now $55



After taking a quick look at the specs, I get the feeling this might be
a good deal for someone who is into controlling stuff with X10s (or TTL).

I was looking at those temperature sensors and thinking they might be
a good way of using X10 controls to switch off my Sanyo ASHP units,
when they aren't needed.

I could switch them off with X10 modules (which I do now manually on one unit)
and save some power that is normally used in standby mode.
(Heating the crankcase oil & keeping the controllers running).

The control program could be based on time, indoor temp, outdoor temp, occupancy and user input..

Might even be cool to put my alarm system on a timer ANDed with motion sensor input.

I've read a little more and this thing looks like something that would be very useful
for all kinds of home monitoring apps. You can log into it (like a website)
or have it send you emails, when certain 'vectors' hit a limit..

I think CAI Networks might have built too many of these for their own use.
CAI Networks - WebControl™ - Industrial Controller over TCP/IP network
Or maybe more than they can sell to web server operators.

A few years ago, gizmos like this would cost a lot more bucks..


Found some reviews
