If I'm reading things correctly, the per fire alarm power rating is 120V
at 80 mA or 9.6 W. The per power FiWi transceiver estimate is 2 Watts
per spatial stream at 160MhZ and 1 Watt for the fiber. Looks like a
retrofit of a fire alarm system would have sufficient power for FiWi
radio heads. Then it's punching a few holes, run fiber, splice, patch &
paint which is very straightforward work for the trades. Rich people as
early adopters could show off their infinitely capable in-home network.
Installers could do a two-for deal, buy one and I'll install another in
a less fortunate community.
Sharktank passed on the Ring deal - imagine having a real, life-support
capable, & future-proof network vs just a silly doorbell w/camera.
