Found a really cool home automation solution that I was able to pick up from Amazon Prime for a really good price. I ordered the Sengled Starter Kit and a couple of smart wifi plugs. In about 30 minutes most of which was getting one more device, the Sengled Hub, next to the wifi router that my iPad works off of all plugged in. Best use is to have a ethernet cable to connect the hub to your WiFi router and a power outlet for the hub. The starter kit comes with the hub plus two wifi led bulbs. Loaded up the Sengled app on the iPad and the rest of the setup was very efficient and painless.
I how have the light in the living room on one of the smart plugs and programmed to come on each evening and off at bedtime. The system really works well and I had no problems connecting any of the devices and setting up locations and programs. If you are thinking about automating your home this is a well thought out solution at a good price. Highly Recommended.
