This is great news. I've always thought that I would use the OnQ ALC system if I ever automated my lighting. It's nice to know there are some people already using it and there potentially being a CQC driver for it.

I saw your posts on Cocoontech and was getting excited!

I'd love to hear you experience with the hardware as you go along. I've seen the system working first hand in a commercal setting, but it's always nice to hear what other people have to say about it.

I'll be happy to post my impressions on the whole system as it goes.

Hardware received. Woot! I'm buried in house work right now, but my first order of business is to build a hobby box of powered switches and lights so I can do the programming right next to the lights, instead of trying to program lights I can't even see....

Sweet! I am very excited about this driver, as I will be using ALC lighting. They started framing two days ago, so I'm finally starting to see some progress.

Rob,
just curious who you used as the supplier for the ALC equipment? Did you use SetNet out of SC or another firm?

Setnet is the only one I'm aware of. Everything I've bought, I got from them.

They are local for me (although a little out of the way in an area I don't frequent very often) which is why I asked. Great guys IMHO. Always very friendly and extremely willing to share their knowledge. I love to plug them any time I can.

Keep us updated on the progress - I'm sure it is going to be much slower than you want it to be Smile

Hehe..you have no idea....

We're on our 3rd week of a stone veneer undertaking at our new house, which was supposed to only take 1 weekend. We're finally down at ground level, which makes things infinitely easier, but we've got to put stone around the mantle, fireplace, and hearth, all of which are much more complicated to do than simple flat wall, which we've had up to now.

That, and the cold/flu has made its rounds in our family, and we're finally getting out of it, but it slows everything down.

And I've got a backlog of drivers I need to clear out somewhat before I can truly dive into this one. And, I need to build my "hobby box" of switches and lights, which will be relatively fun and a learning experience, but will still require some weekend I haven't yet been able to find.....

So yes... you are right. ;-) But I'm still very excited about this stuff. I find the protocol to be pretty full powered, and I'm very impressed with the hardware I have so far.

Well, as rightly predicted, it IS going slower than I'd like. I have the hardware needed to build the hobby box now, but time is slipping past again.

We finally finished all the stonework, and even put the hearthstones on. So Wed night, we're going to grout them, and also lay down some slate on the floor around the fireplace. While my wife does most of that, I'm going to attempt to wire a switch and light up a wall to light the unfortunately and unexpectedly dark toilet area of the downstairs powder room. If I can manage to do that, then I'll be more emboldened to build my hobby box. Hopefully I can make that happen during the week nights, as this weekend I'm going to be driving around a little excavator and digging ditches...whee. :roll:
