Control4 last week announced a new lighting solution

Any thoughts on these? Prices seem more reasonable then Lutron. I was thinking of doing control4 for home automation eventually.

Would love to hear everyone's thoughts on if you think this system is going to be as good or better than Lutron?

The pillowesque buttons seem like they belong in a 70's space station B-movie. Very skeptical of availability outside the dealer ecosystem, discount pricing, and whether they are compliant with a public zigbee pro stack and can be used with other zigbee based systems. But if you are jumping into C4 with both feet then it might be welcome as it is probably very tightly integrated. It is nice that the keypads have lots of button options and that there is a fan controller.

More excited about the following new lighting products for June:
  1. Legrand Adorne Whole House Wireless (much more reasonable pricing and better design, not dealer exclusive, but no in-wall keypads yet)
  2. Belkin Wemo WiFi Wall Switch (quite affordable & widely available but relay only no dimmer)
