Looks like the plug was finally pulled on Staples Connect:

The AB8SS appears to be still available... at least here: http://www.hacs.com/ab8ss.php

What is ALC?
I know the page exists for the hacs, but I don't think it's still available.

ALC lighting by OnQ. Looks like it is still alive with Stuart Electronics, so it probably should not be added to the list.

ALC lighting remains alive also with Leviton HAI Omni panels. Many OnQ users either got rid of their panels or updated them to HAI panels many many years ago (it's only a chip replacement as the boards are the same). The OmniPanels will live longer than Leviton as they were well built.

The HACS stuff while no longer being sold was made to last forever. Here have an AB8SS that still functions just fine and never has been a problem. It was used before Russound and is still utilized today.

Looking over some of the products I used in the past that are no longer relevant:

SageTV: Not a home automation product, but one that many here used. I have HD200 units still that i'm trying to get rid of on their forums with no takers.

WGLDesigns: Still active (W800 product used heavily), but they used to make a Relay-8 and multi-channel device that would send X-10 signals on a contact closure.

TouchTronixs/Red Radio: They had a RelayTouch-UTMA touch screen with nControl technology for creating an 'instance' of a computer's OS (say your HomeSeer server). Never really took off.

Shame Cinemar/MainLobby dissolved as it did provide a pretty cool interface.

BSR,

Cinemar is rebranded as Allonis, and alive and well without the flash interface.

Now 100% HTML, which is a lot easier and WYSIWYG using open standards.

Warren makes good, reliable products but all with older tech. New products have to support wireless protocols now or have to be mobile-device friendly. HA is in a much different state than it used to be.
