Why is Lochinvar software so expensive?
Hey bobbyg..I'll check when I get home later, I don't keep that on the truck. But, I'm pretty sure it's made by Keyspan. I think I got it from amazon for, like twenty bucks. I'm pretty sure it's the same adaptor I already had for connecting my Fluke 54-2 meter. I also wound up needing it for my Testo 523 refrig set-up (which I don't use anymore). When I got the Knight software, I didn't think ill of the cable, because I just figured all the really cool companies were using this cable end, however odd it appeared at the time. I think it's 9 pin to usb.
One thing I'm not sure of, is this intended for homeowners to use, because I can see settings get out of whack by someone monkeying around with them. I do hydronics all day, every day, and I still refer to manuals on most every job. Don't start the hate about not allowing homeowners to work on their own stuff. I made enough money last year alone off of fixing diy'er mistakes, that my first grandchild has her first year of college bought and paid for. Homeowners/diyers'/engineers can crack it all open as far as I'm concerned. I've never had a customer ask if they could monitor a system themselves, over and above what is on the display originally. Which is quite a bit on the Knight compared to others.
SmartSystem software would be cheap at twice the price.
