    Vision has now been down for two days. DAMN SPRINT! This is getting
    ridiculous.

    Yep, still down for me too. However, Mobi-MLB still works (I had
    cancelled it, then re-subscribed). For an extra $7.99 per month I would
    have been real ticked off (again) if they knocked out a service I'm
    paying extra for--above and beyond Vision itself.

    Regardless, I don't see how this can be part of the EV-DO upgrade if the
    backend data infrastructure is chugging right along. It looks like they
    are merely updating the Vision (mobile) Website itself. Why that
    couldn't be done separately (while the old site was still up), tested,
    and then switched instantly to the new server/version is beyond me. But
    this is SPCS--if there's a long way to do something, they will find
    it...

    I take that back.. Vision works, but the Vision home page doesn't work
    which I'm assuming is what you're talking about.. in that case, The Vision
    homepage is down here in Phoenix.. but Vision services themselves work just
    fine..

    Re: Vision is Still Down!!

    I am now back up. I use vision to monitor and control my home automation
    system and therefore it causes me a problem when it is down for an excessive
    amount of time.

    I access Vision with a phone handset. I run a special wap web server so that
    I can access my home automation system to monitor and control devices.

    We moved, about a year ago, where I had X-10'd the house from head to toe.
    Over time, I found myself plugging just about everything into a filter, in
    order to maintain a reasonable signal level.

    In our new place, I went with UPB. Very similar to X-10, but slightly more
    expensive and *much* more reliable. (There are a few other technologies,
    out there, but, for us, they became prohibitively expensive.)

    I tied the home automation to our alarm system's brain (HAI OmniPro II),
    and to a program called Home Control Assistant. Between HAI and HCA, I
    can even add X-10 modules, to trigger UPB devices, and vice versa. All in
    all, it's become a very flexible (and fun!) system.

    X10 and othe Home Control Stuff

    Notan,
    Your system sounds really cool!
    In my opinion, X10 is not a good solution for non-engineers. I have a signal
    meter that I can use in order to determine what devices are attenuating the
    signal. X10 signal attenuation is becoming more of a problem as more
    electronic devices incorporate switching power supplies. Switching power
    supplies are very efficient and small as compared to normal
    transformer/rectifier combinations, however they generate high frequency
    noise. In order to minimize the high frequency noise, vendors of equipment
    that incorporate switching power supplies use filters in order to remove the
    high frequency component that is generated by the switching power supplies.
    Unfortunately, these filters severely attenuate X10 signals.

    In order to deal with this problem, I purchased a small signal meter from
    smarthome.com about a year ago. The meter measures X10 signal strength at
    any AC outlet. With the X10 signal meter, it is simple to locate the device
    that are attenuating the X10 signal. I can usually accomplish this in 10
    minutes or less and install a filter on the device. I also use one the
    signal coupler/amplifiers that plugs into a dryer outlet in order to boot
    signal strength along with several other signal boosters in AC outlets at
    strategic positions.

    Yes, X10 is a pain and there is something better on the horizon from
    Smarthome called "Insteon". Insteon uses both RF and the power line to
    transmit signals to a device.. Each device functions as a signal repeater
    and a signal coupler/amplifier is not needed. The only problem with Insteon
    and other devices is the SLOW introduction of new products. Since I
    currently have about 30 X10 devices, I am going to live with them for the
    next year or two until all of the devices that I need to replace all of my
    X10 devices are available in Insteon offerings. The problem is: "You name
    the X10 device, and I have it", therefore I need to replace a lot of
    different X10 device types.

    The problem I am facing now is finding good outdoor X10 RF motion detectors
    that do give so many false alarms. Any suggestions?

    Regards,

    -mij

    Northern California. Noticed it was down Friday afternoon.
    It's now Sunday night and it's still down.

    Re: Vision is Still Down!!

    Ditto in SF. No Vision Home page, but bookmarks work.

    I can get to several of the same services as Vision (news, sports,
    weather, movies, reference) from
    http://wap.sprintusers.com/wap
    so go there and then set it as a bookmark.

    Or from your computer, visit
    http://www.sprintusers.com/wap/web/
    for more info and other ways to get your phone to the site.


    Its link to the Vision home page fails.
