It is one of those things you will not realize you need till you need it. Beyond utility, it could also be interesting to see how information travels like this. Scaling will be the issue. I hope it comes to fruition. Thanks for the reply.

Local area networks are not a big issue for those in the know.

Power isn't a problem either. Most appliances in the coms range are stepped down to voltages applicable to DC 12V or lower.
