@JDRoberts I’m not so sure the engineer was completely missing in action. Quite often, it’s the tried and true engineer that is also the inventor/innovator. I actually see the way the best engineers think as the perfect combination of the most helpful aspects of both conservative AND progressive thought coinciding within the same mindset.
p.s. Side topic:
Since I’ve been gravitating more toward Z-Wave because of the potential RF conflicts between Zigbee and 2.4GHz Wi-Fi, it struck me when you said that you don’t like Z-Wave.
Can you point me to a thread where you express more on which protocol/s you prefer for sensors (I know you use some Bluetooth stuff, but not sure if that’s it), and why?
I assume it varies, and depends on use case, etc, but I love hearing your perspective on this stuff, and have done a 180 (or at least a 90) on a number of things over the years as a direct result of hearing you out on things like this.
