I am on the hunt for some light switches that can be remotely and locally controlled over WiFi, something very much like the WeMo Light Switch, except there are none in NZ.
Has anyone here installed something like this? Any recommendations?
My requirements are:
1) Still operate as a normal on/off switch
2) Controlled over local LAN
3) Controlled remotely over the Internet
4) Be programmable, i.e. timers, events, IFTTT.com integration
All of these can be answered with a WeMo. Note - I am not after the wall plugs they offer, as these need to control both internal and external lights.
Ideally I would also like replacement power sockets too (and yes, there apparently are WeMo ones coming out too, but again nothing I can buy today).
I would also rather stay away from 'controller' type situations such as Lutron, although X10 could be an option, but I cannot find as much product as I could a couple of years ago. Is 240 X10 becoming rare?
