General Category > X10 Product Wish List

Is the demand there?

(1/3) > >>

Tuicemen:
Authinx has been looking at reintroducing some old products.
Some like the Robo Dog which many would like to see simply would need a total rebuild as a different manufactured made them and would be a costly endeavor especially if demand was low.
The PR511 requires out sourcing the light part (the sensor they can do).
The PSC05 requires a commitment of 3000 orders. Authinx doesn't see the demand for a commitment of that size.

I suggested looking for end user input as to what you'd like to see.
I've made it possible to change your votes so if someone would like to see something else or a variation of a old product I can add it to the list and users can change their votes to express interest.

The floodlight would be nice, even if only the sensor. I think it needs a revamp. I was never too keen on the sequential unit code tripping. Either drop some options, or add more.

How long it takes to go into production would also make a huge difference.
If they're looking at a two-year plus timeline then I'd pass on all of them.

For things that they have the tooling for I believe production time would be very short unless they added stuff.
I have a list of all modules (x10 and Pro) they have tooling for (I as of Dec 2013) posted on my forum http://tuicemen.com/forum/index.php?topic=688.msg3960#msg3960.
The list doesn't include things like the PR511 sensor.

I would really like to have a hardwired motion sensor.  I have created one with an off the shelf module and the GPIO on my RPi and it works ok.  However, it would be nice to have the motion sensor more integrated.  Now that it's set up, I don't know if I would change that installation.  However, I also have some outdoor lights elsewhere that are controlled by MS16A modules.  They always seem to fail or have the battery die or <insert stupid issue here>.  I would really like to install a set of hardwired sensors in their place.

If X10 made the PR511 sensors available on their own, I think I'm not the only one who would snap a set of them up (assuming the cost wasn't astronomical compared to other offerings).  I see that as one module X10 dropped the ball on big time!

And while I'm at it, if they were to make them so you could local control via a WS467 (or similar) AND control the light (like the PR511) that would be AWESOME!  If they could send the command to other lights, that would be even better.  That would make it possible to control multiple outdoor light circuits from a single motion sensor (or link motion events on different sensors).
