We believe this Website demonstrates the invention and first public release
of the "Daisy-Chain Hub" and the "Folded Daisy-Chain System" concepts.
We can prove this website was first uploaded on or before Oct. 31, 2001
The RS-485 Home Automation System shown in this Website provides:
|1) A System controller which connects to a first Daisy-Chain Hub|
|2) The first Daisy-Chain Hub connects to a 2nd Daisy-Chain Hub|
|3) Five different types of RS-485 products connected to the Daisy-Chain Bus|
We can prove the RS-485 Hub was completed and installed in 1998.
See link #8 below for the exact development timeline.
