And so now I wonder ... could/should component mfrs themselves make their products “quick-connect”?
Julie Jacobson (Posted on 07/30/14, 02:01 PM)
Agree, Jerry, but as a rule we just only publish “retail” price. In this case, one reason would be because each disty would be charging a different dealer cost and we don’t want to be the ones to put it out there.

Julie Jacobson (Posted on 07/30/14, 01:01 PM)
of course, the dealer price is nowhere near $290.
Julie Jacobson (Posted on 07/30/14, 01:00 PM)
Yes indeed, Jerry, I brought the patent thing up. The idea is obviously easy to replicate.
Jerry Stuckle (Posted on 07/30/14, 12:56 PM)
Julie, I think the pushback is the $290 price.  It’s a great idea, and should nicely match my $150 claw hammer… Somewhere around 1/3 the cost and I think it would sell well.  However, unless they have a patent…

Other John—That is not really the case. They are already doing in-home communications via their own Weave protocol (6LoWPAN over 802.15.4), which I suspect is the exact same thing as Thread. The initiative, then, would be to add more…
