BTW, dan, thanks for all your work in this area and looking into PLCBUS when it doesn't directly benefit you
The way I see it, good quality HA is going to be the KEY to wide adoption.
I've always been 'tinkering' with HA.. I think my first X10 device was a Radio Shack HomePlug.. lol
I was getting very frustrated with the progress of quality HA drivers for lmce, hence, I 'bit the bullet' and learned Ruby..
Now that I know a bit more about it.. <hehe> and looking here at how many people CAN'T use Insteon.. and looking at how simple PLCBUS is, it only makes sense to integrate it..
I doubt it will have the same integration level as Insteon (the protocol doesn't allow for it), but I'll make a quality BIDIRECTIONAL driver for it.
You'll have to add each lighting device in LMCE manually.. shouldn't be a problem... it's dead simple...
The nice features of zwave and insteon are that the protocols are advanced enough to 'sniff' out all the devices, and add them to lmce accordingly. That's what I've tried to do with the Insteon driver.. and from what I've read, thats also what the ZWave driver did.
