Get a ISY-994izw . The ISY-994izw supports both insteon and z-wave now. The programming interface looks dated but it is simple for non-programmers. There is always a very nice rest api if you want to do more. I have a mix of insteon and z-wave. Z-wave is by far more reliable and more secure than insteon, but I still use insteon if it is better device and cost for the job. The core of the ISY device isn't trying to have pretty gui, it just makes a device that works.

Chronic pain is much different than regular pain, there is nothing good that comes from chronic pain.Chronic pain is currently ruining my life. It really is almost impossible to do anything and enjoy life while the entire time your back is saying "You want to go for walk today with your wife, fuck you. You want to walk down some stairs hahaha fuck you again"

Nope the gentle giant was trying to jump through the police officers car window to give up himself up after robbing a store. This is how Brown's DNA was found Wilson's gun, on inside and outside of the car and Wilson's uniform and the blood that was found on the inside and outside of the car.

Brown watch too much Duke's of Hazards growing up and thought this was the way to enter a car.

If it's not in the computer, it doesn't exist.
