x10 floodcam alternative
« on: April 11, 2009, 04:28:48 am »
Does anyone know if there is someting similar to the x10 floodcam available for z-wave?

http://www.x10.com/products/x10_vt38a.htm

I have done some searching but haven't found anything. I have read many not so possitive reviews on the floodcam and even though I do love the concept of it I would rather stay away from x10.
I understand that this can be done by some stand alone devices but was wondering if there is something already available as an individual item.

A small note: With LMCE you can mix and match your home automation equipment. You can have 95% of your home use Z-Wave, and for the last 5% use some X-10 stuff, where the X-10 disadvantages like speed are not that big of a deal. I, for one, started with X-10 in my home theater room, where speed is no issue. The rest of my home will receive either Z-Wave or X-10. A Z-Wave switch sends a command to LMCE. LMCE in turn switches on the X-10 light.

That's the beauty of LMCE.
