Comparing GU10 LED bulbs

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Like many in the HA community, I have an interest in using LED based light bulbs, not just for power saving, but because they may well survive frequent cycling better than fluorescent or even incandescent technologies. This is fairly critical in an automated home, since in somewhere like a hall where the average family might leave a lamp almost permanently on, an automated home may be cycling the bulb many times a day.

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I wanted to try out Blogo, just because, but couldn't get it to work due to an invalid login. There is no console window for debugging, unlike Ecto. Anyway, as usual the Movable Type help is no help. Many mentions of using the web services password. And this is true, you do have to use your web services password.
