h2. Device node
46 1 Hammel
47 1 Hammel
Concept of a module unit so each new application doesn't need a new device.
48 1 Hammel
49 1 Hammel
* esp8266 for IoT
50 1 Hammel
* CHiP/RPi Zero for subnodes
51 1 Hammel
* RPi quad for master
52 1 Hammel
* No Intel - ARM or related
53 1 Hammel
* Want a reusable minimal component
54 1 Hammel
55 1 Hammel
h2. Products
56 1 Hammel
57 1 Hammel
* server box - master @ home, could have multiple, distributed in a single home
58 1 Hammel
* subnode - manages a collection of devices, reports to master
59 1 Hammel
* nodes - IoT, media servers - any "thing" that is an endpoint

h2. Problems
62 1 Hammel
63 1 Hammel
* Margins: 80-100% initially, %30 sustained
64 1 Hammel
* Cost: $80 per outlet would not be reasonable
65 1 Hammel
* wired network (wireline electrical)?
66 1 Hammel
* wifi problems?
67 1 Hammel
** g - interference
68 1 Hammel
** n - faster, still interference?
69 1 Hammel
** ac - best?  not in esp8266?
70 1 Hammel
** could we use non-wifi comm?
71 1 Hammel
* Comm security
72 1 Hammel
* power IoT - must last a long time
73 1 Hammel
** power harvesting
74 1 Hammel
** minimal power for comm - save most for control of device
75 1 Hammel
* Mechanical experience
76 1 Hammel
* Data band vs Control band
77 1 Hammel
** wifi for data
78 1 Hammel
** bluetooth or other RF for control
79 1 Hammel
* No cloud - network comm is private, not to 3rd party
80 1 Hammel
** Add on: we manage a server
