I too am getting ready to build a house. I am considering pre-wiring the house to support ALC but, now I am having second thoughts. I want a DIY lighting system that I incrementally add/move/change as I see fit. Originally, planned on implementing a hybrid lighting system of ALC and X10. Currently, I am considering ALC and UPB. Now, I am having second thoughts about ALC.
I don't hear much chatter about ALC in this group. HAI is pushing their HLC/UPB. Most HA controllers support ALC but none seem to push/promote it. Is OnQ still developing new ALC components and features?
Will ALC still be a viable lighting solution in the next couple of years?
Is ALC that much better than UPB (speed & reliability) to justify the added cost & complexity (cabling)?
What am I missing?
