Panbo editor, publisher & chief bottlewasher from 4/2005 until 8/2018, and now pleased to have Ben Stein as a very able publisher, webmaster, and editing colleague. Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    the 3 wire concept is interesting and conceptually may save a lot of wiring in some installations. But in actual fact there would still need to be home runs to the trunk cable… perhaps not back to the panals and sub panels.
    But what happens when one of these switches is not repsonding? How do you figue out whether it is a software matter of a hardware failure? Does this make taking care of these systems to a whole new level? Nowadays we can’t fix our cars… they have to plugged into a computer which diagnoses and finds the faults.
    Not being a ludite I like techie progress… but it is making understanding how things work very geekie and inaccessible and we become dumb users and button pushers. no?
