Hi

Can anyone vouch for this Chinese distributor, anyone ordered and received goods, why does he have a hotmail address I wonder out loud? ;-)

Kind Regards
Richard

I did business with some chinese guys and it seems many of them don't care. Just get in contact with him, he is very helpful. And he is not the distributor, he's the manufacturer.

Hari

They certainly make australian versions of the modules according to their downloadable catalogue.

I sent of a couple of emails and Automation@home(the one with the prices in pounds) responded that they will order them from the factory and pricing will be the same as the UK ones.

I emailed the info address at the plcbus main website and havn't heard back yet - it sounds like the guy hari mentioned might be from there.

Richard if you contact him see if we can buy direct from him and it might be worth doing a combined order as I think Colin and RichardP (from Melbourne) were interested as well.

regards
Darren

That's the guy that I contacted. He seemed to loose interest as soon as I mentioned LMCE. I never chased him up again so maybe you want to give it a go...

Richard,

I got the same email that you did when emailing the info@something address from the PLC-BUS website.

I have emailed MOX, yet to get a response. If he is not interested then will email the manufacturer back and let him know. Perhaps we can make up an order big enough to interest him directly if we all want stuff.

Might just end up ordering from the online site x-10hk.com - They said they would order Aussie parts from the manufatcurer.

Regards
Darren

Same for me.
I made an agreement with him that if he sponsored a USB interface (which he agreed to) I would promote plcbus as much as I can here in sweden. However, as you say when "I mentioned LMCE" he stopped responding to my emails.

Have also tried the info@ addresses, with no luck. Have sent at least 10 emails to it without response.
Since I have been doing some china import earlier I´m not too surprised. Many manufacturers use hotmail addresses. As soon as you contact them and as for samples or how to make a small order they will direct you to a hotmail address to finalize your order. Why?. I don´t know. Perhaps there are people that have side incomes. Just a guess.

I'm not sure, but I think Hari really liked the Scene Controller..
It may be worth your while to look at that too.

I was thinking;
  USB interface
  1 Lamp Module (AU)
  2 Appliance Module (AU)
  and then I want to do 3 or four lights to start with. 2 of them have to be dimming and the manual switch could be one unit (maybe duel crystal panel) the other two have fluros so they woulnd not be dimmable. I might try micro switches for them.

If it all works well then I would add a bunch more lights - mixture of dimmable and not.

I still have not heard from the MOX guy - might try and get him on the phone.
