Good commentary. One thing jumps out at me.  It seems my advice to clients stressing the fact that you can never have too many Cat5 is spot on. Looks like mixed environments might be workable with parallel switching and distribution…

I actually had some hands-on time with the Zipabox Z-Wave module last summer and thought it was pretty good.  I really like the modular design of the system.  The one drawback for me was the UI.  But since my review of the…
