Rated 5 out of 5Â by Panaman Control lights anywhere and on a timer
This is a very cool system. The system comes with two wifi light bulbs and the control unit. The black box is everything you need to start controlling your entire house. You can basically keep adding compatible devices to the system. The black controller box can be tucked away in a closet hidden from site, it just requries an ethernet connection. T Once on your network you can control the devices with your phone, or ipad or even a web interface. I attached a screen shot of the web interface. he nice thing about this system is the lights can be dimmed or turned on and off. They can also be set to turn on and off at different times of the day.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by 2gtsvette Wow !! excellent way control lights
This is a great product. I use it everyday in my living room and front door way of my house. It is easy to setup and the app is very easy to use. The app allows you to control the lights in various ways, you can dim the lights and even set timers for them to turn on. For me I set my timers to come on around the time I get home so I don't need to feel around in the dark when I open the door for the light switch. In my living room I use my app to dim the lights when watching movies etc. Since the base unit is tied into your network at home it also has the ability to work over the internet allowing you to control your lights from anywhere with internet access.
One other thing to mention, the bulbs are a nice warm white color and is very bright for an LED. I like the compact design and brightness Overall I am very happy with this product and will be expanding the blubs to more rooms in my house.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HDKevin Very easy set up and lot of energy savings
Evidently my kids think we have solar power electricity because there are constantly lights being left on in the house. This kit is great for 2 reasons: first are the LED bulbs. They draw less that a CFL yet produce natural looking bright light. The only difference I noticed is a very slight delay when turning on the light. They do not flicker when dimmed and light produced is not "fake" looking. Secondly the phone app makes it so easy to monitor your usage. My kids like to leave lights on when they're not home so I can quickly check via the app turn off individual lights or entire rooms at a time. For a vacation, you can schedule lights to turn on in different rooms for any period of time for extra security. Setup was very easy. Plug and play into the internet router and the app walks you through the rest in a few short steps. Please watch my video for a demonstration of the app.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Mark Didn't think I would love it this much
I was skeptical about how much impact having a wireless lighting system would have on my household. Installing the hardware was very easy and then setting up the software on my wireless devices was pretty easy as well. The one hangup I had was trying to modify the preset Smart Controls. Forget trying that; just create your own and everything will work fine. I love being able to turn on/off lights while I'm pulling in the driveway or out and about. The app lets you set timers as well which is great for when you are away or if you want to set outdoor lights to go on/off at certain times. I also like how you can take a photo of your light fixture and save it to the app to easily identify which light you are controlling. I will be getting more bulbs to add to the network. Even though the bulbs are dimmable, I wish there were higher wattage-equivalent options.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by StefiHavasu Get the kids up in the morning
My husband picked up one of the bigger three-bulb kits online a while back, mainly we've been using it to get our kids up for school in the morning by having the lights in their rooms come on slowly to wake them up. It works Brilliantly, much nicer than alarm clocks! I honestly think this is a great product, i'm constantly raving about it to anyone who will listen. Only just got home from the black friday sale at hd's, where i picked up four of these specific two-bulb kits. I'm planning on giving three of them to my brothers for christmas (they're geeks and will love this too) and keeping one myself. I want to try and set one up on our deck and have it turn on automatically for a few hours when it gets dark.
