If there is one thing that I would like to strongly recommend to anybody interested in Home Automation it would be to run away from anything related to the ThinkBoxx offering. It has been one of the most expensive and problematic lessons I could have ever hoped to have endured.
We are currently ripping out the ThinkBoxx from my parents house and upgrading it to a Ness M1 panel. Thus far the Ness panel has mopped the floor with the ThinkBoxx. It offers true ethernet/internet support (even on Mac OSX) and so far has been a real pleasure to build and program.
I will endeavour to provide more information as time progresses about the install of the panel for those who care, and those who don’t – just skip the posts
