Hi, first post here.
There are plenty of TCP/IP over powerline adapters available http://www.conrad.com/Powerline-Sets-%26amp;-Accessories.htm?websale7=conrad-int&ci=SHOP_AREA_17132_0415139
I have tried hard to find home automation products that use this technology, but have failed. This would have all the benefits of a wireless system (no extra wiring) without the downsides of wireless signals (plus, two-way communication would be easier).
So is there anything like this out there?
Don't know of any. The market for automation components is already small. If you couple a product to powerline networking, it further limits it. The wireless systems have already been cost-optimized, I don't think we'll see much movement into powerline...
What specifically are you trying to accomplish Henrik?
So sorry for my late reply.
What I am trying to accomplish is basic on/off switching of lighting. Without the need for extra wiring, without the need for wireless signals. By using the power lines as a way of communicating.
