this company do exist, I have bought X-10 switches from them. I also have
send emails asking about their similarity with UPB, but as you might have
expected, no good answers regarding technical questions.

Saying that this technology has nothing to do with UPB, I think it is too
premature. If you have downloaded UPB_Overview.pdf from UPB and "PLCBUS
Technical Informations.pdf", I believe you would say there is something
between the two (At least their presentation format and general
informations). Go to "UPB Communications Summary" on page 6 of the first pdf
file and compare it with "3. Product Definition Product Features" on page 18
in the second pdf file. You would be surprise on how similar the two.

My suspicion is that UPB licences the tecnology to this company with the
agreement that S-10 can use a different software protocol and market them
with different name. In terms of hardware signalling, I guess both of them
are at least almost the same.

Just my two cents.
