    Christmas gift, got one of these.. I think it would be cool if you had 3-4 of them, but being they're 50$ not that cool. So I have ONE I placed it in the kitchen, area as a soft light for the living room so I can turn it on and off from the couch, but I'm really thinking there may be better ideas out there.

    My original idea was to use it for my bedroom ceiling fan, so when I'm freezing I do to have to get up freezing even more and shut it off. And that ideas seeming better and better

    Incase I didn't make it clear, you use your phone to activate it, you can also set times for it to come on and go off, or sun ride sunset deal. I have to put it somewhere.... Ideas??

    In that case, wait until they start installing the other electrical devices and AV trimout. They may never notice it, unless it looks totally different from all of the other switches.:D

    Do you have a media room? That's a good place, since some movies, concert videos and TV shows benefit from varying ambient light levels. Otherwise, maybe an outdoor light? Can you set a schedule for ON/OFF?

    I see that it can schedule events- have you looked at this site?

    To me if you only have one use it for security. Put it in a place that would discourage would be thieves. That way when you are away from home you can randomly turn it off and on to make it look as though someone is home.

    I get what your saying, but still lol,

    I also now how a wifi camera, can be used for security and alert me on my phone when it senses motion, i could use em together but I really don't want to be THAT guy, nor am I worried about my safety like that.

    I could use it for my flood lights or porch lights to come on automatically, but a much much cheaper timer could do that..

    Use it for your outside lights - front porch, etc. that you want to turn on and off automatically.
