I am fascinated by home automation tech, melding wifi, mobile and everyday stuff like locks, lights, home “systems” and the like.

Looking for a couple of those light timer switches, to turn lights on and off at pre-scheduled times, I saw a box of two bulbs by TCP.

$50 for two wifi switched LED bulbs and a wifi switch box. Not cheap but about the same as two timers. So I bought them, and set them up.

Dead easy, and they work!

Download the app, and my phone is now a light switch!

I was unable to see where I buy extra bulbs at HomeDepot, but I think I will get some more, and set up a home control system.

Other stuff appeals, like the thermostat system just bought by Google (maybe there is an alternative), and door locks. Garden sprinklers could be another use.
