FWIW, I see that Zigbee is taking off now. I just found a Freescale
chip at Mouser.com that integrates both a microcontroller and a Zigbee
module for $5 each in quantity. There are now several other suppliers
as well. That's seriously cool. AFAICT Zigbee is more of a general
networking protocol than a home automation standard.
Has anyone in the group tried programming Freescale MCUs with Linux?
Boy would I like to mess with these chips.
