    I have four Genius systems out there in various stages of installation, but
    none are started yet. I will keep you posted. If they would add a dry contact
    at each output so you could run pumps instead of zone valves (Are you
    listening, Jeff Weiderman?), I would sell 'em like candy. If they work well, it
    will beat spending hours chasing thermostat wires, especially in renovations
    even with the cost of the base unit ($500 list).

    Whenever you have a wireless unit, you are transmitting a signal. This
    requires electricity, usually in the form of a battery.

    The HO needs to understand that battery maintenance is their responsibility.

    Also, before installing any wireless device, check the unit's range and
    frequency specifications. The higher the frequency (2.4Ghz) the greater the
    issue with physical obstacles. Because this spectrum is close to physical light,
    it has some of the characteristics of light. For example, like not being able to
    shine through a wall. In this case walls made of certain materials.

    Good luck, Phil.
