Installed easily and works perfectly for our living room overhead light that does not have a light switch in this 1887 Victorian house.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Snuggis Nice kit, but Software Stinks
The TCP kit is nice and well made. The bulbs give off very pleasant light, and when everything is working, it is a delight to operate.
However, I found the software very confusing, and the lack of a comprehensive manual is disappointing. Email customer service was good, however.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by N2jeepin Nice light kit and works will dimmer switches
Very nice LED light bulb and WIFI gateway device. Bulbs do make some noise so they aren't for absolute quiet rooms. But good light and fun to play with via your smart phone. Wifi feature is more of a toy than useful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BethA Amazingly simple!!
I purchased this for my daughter, who is disabled. She has difficulty walking thru her apartment to get to light switches. With this, she can turn on lights from her phone while sitting in her car in her garage. It is a life-saver!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by techycalimom Great to get the kids up in the morning
I put these in the fixtures inthe kids rooms, and set them to turn on slowly in the morning to get them up for school. Works like a charm!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HHS Simple Home Lighting Automation - NO wiring required
I have been searching for a year for a simple lighting automation and control system for my condo. We have several circuits where one switch controls multiple light fixtures. I wanted to split these into separate circuits. Estimates from several electricians were $1500 to $2000 and would have involved running new wires, breaking holes in ceiling, etc.
I came across several light control systems such as Insteon and Z-wave but these would have required I add control units into each fixture and some not so straight-forward programming of remotes and my pc.
Then I came upon Connected by TCP sold at the Home Depot. This system was cost efficient and included smart LED bulbs which were easy to control via a remote (preset or reprogrammable if you like) and some straight forward directions. I purchased several of these systems and was easily able to separately control each of 3 lights which were previously controlled by a single wall switch. I can individually dim or brighten each light, I can control it from a simple hand held remote or from an app on my IPHONE.
In my opinion, having looked at many, this is a very simple straightforward system to use and does NOT require any wiring or rewiring of fixtures.
Connected by TCP comes with LED bulbs (round, spot) and with CFL bulbs. I highly recommend the system, and of course when you order from home depot, they stand behind it.
My only slight negative is that the current LED bulbs are equivalent to about 60 watt and I would like brighter bulbs. One can group several bulbs in a single fixture and control them each individually or in a fixture group. I ALSO think it would be very helpful if HomeDepot stocked in their stores the SMART TCP bulbs for the system.
GREAT System ! There is nothing else like it (no wiring, easy to use) at least that I could find and I have looked a lot.
