just to update everyone interested in the beacon: I got 2 replies from griffin to my 2 emails, as follows:
Q1: Is wifi and/or wide-range bluetooth going to be in the beacon product?
A1: Unfortunately we aren't for sure yet. I would estimate in a couple weeks that we would know some more details on that product. Please check back with GriffinTechnology.com for future updates. I am sorry that I do not have more information for you at this time
Please support either wifi or a wide-range bluetooth.
People like myself are keen to control source devices in other rooms, in order to pump sources around the house.
For example, I have a DVR set-top box in one room, connected by HDMI to a TV and AVR in another room, and when I'm in the TV room I want to be able to control the DVR... make sense?
I was going to purchase a redeye from thinkflood, being a wifi product that will support such requirements, but I've decided to hold off, in order to see what your product is like...
I have read about the dijit iphone app (and downloaded it too) and it looks great (better than redeye too)
A2: Hello, and thanks for the input!
I will pass that along to the appropriate people for future consideration.
I hope it ends up working out for you!
So I guess we will have to wait and see....
