Re: any one have any experience with this new product?

geez no commercial or personal involvement here from me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, I
just saw a write up in the new Smart Homeowner magazine September/October
issue page 11. I posted the note before I realized it hasn't yet shipped, I
too am intrigued and did sign up to receive more info. The mag lists the
starter pack at 149, w/ ea additional sensor at 35-49 dollars.
