    That's a good article. Thanks for posting.

    Here there are a couple of outbuildings that are out of range of wifi and z-wave so I currently use Insteon devices. I'd love an alternative.

      Bumping this up for discussion since the official be on the lookout announcement was sent out this week from Amazon.

      What's everyone's take on this?
      Opt out?
      Opt in?

      Sharing your bandwidth? (teeny tiny amount)
      Crowd-sourcing for internet access?

        I wonder what kind of protections are build into this capability. If my evil neighbor is using this to peruse the internet for illegal pornography or how to commit a crime, and the authorities trace back the activity to my router, just how much trouble would I be in?

          So a little here and a little there and now all my neighbors and I are being watched for illegal downloads.

          You're not that far off from my concern, but the intro reads that they're only 'borrowing' a small amount of your bandwidth and they promise to give it back when you borrow back from your neighbors.
          I live in a small town, not sure if the coverage would be dense enough to afford any real benefit for us.
