What will be typical cost of incorporating Android@home is a one appliance? Will there be safety and hazard issue with making them intelligent? Does insurance company endorse this?

Hmm, after reading these comments from pc mag article [1] it is more and more likely that Synapse Wireless just saw an opportunity for free publicity and that is why they didn't deny or confirm when you asked them. According to Eric Holland, vice president of electrical engineering at Lighting Science, Android@Home will use a new version of a wireless network developed by Google. It will eventually be open sourced, Holland added. "Google reached out to us, but we were already working on something similar," Holland said. Wireless Science plans five products, including internal lamps and external lighting fixtures that use the technology. They will ship by the end of the year, Holland said. So either Eric Holland is being fed false information or you came to wrong conclusion. Both scenarios are possible. Your comments? [1] http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2385158,00.asp

Well speaking as someone who's occasionally been on the receiving end of the kind of difficult question you put to Wade, I hope you haven't given Synapse any grief from Google!

Glad it's not SETI@Home for Android. I don't need my phone catching on fire or burning through the battery any faster than it already does!

Their EK2500 eval kit looks to be ZigBee - so does SNAP do the zigbee licensing for you?
