WeMo Light Switch

Control the lights in your home from any room, or anywhere in the world, with the WeMo Light Switch ($50). This WiFi-enabled light switch replaces any standard light switch in your house or apartment, letting you turn lights on and off from your Android or iOS device. A quick project for the average DIYer — it's easy to install and features a clip-on faceplate that fits flush against your wall. The app lets you program your lights to turn or off on a schedule, or at sunrise and sunset. A subtle backlight makes the light switch easy to locate, and IFTTT support connects it to a number of apps. [Scouted by Joe & Bob]

  • Philips Hue

    Why go green with your lightbulbs when you can go orange, yellow, red, or blue? Philips Hue ($200) is a new series of LED-based lighting solutions that screw right in to normal light sockets. Plug a little box into your router, and you can control the color and intensity of one light bulb or all of them right from your iPhone, and thanks to the LED tech, they draw a max of 8.5W while shining as brightly as a standard 50W bulb, saving you money. Three lights and the wireless box are included in the starter pack; it's available exclusively through Apple. [Scouted by Brian]
