Got an iPhone? Then You Have a Remote Light Switch

What isn't the iPhone doing? It's a square and a level. It's also a bedside clock that happens to be able to control your entire home automation system. Not to be left out, Lutron is hopping on the iPhone train.

The 'system' consists of either your iPhone or iPod touch and Lutron wireless modules attached to the specific lights that you want to control. Looking at the UI for this Lutron application, it is very similar to the Lutron Aurora lighting automation set we reviewed before. But instead of a dedicated keypad stuck in one room, you have the flexibility of keeping the control in your pocket and always accessible. If this works as well as the Aurora system, Lutron definitely has a winner here.
