Wi-Fi Adapters Let You Control Lightbulbs From Your Smartphone

Design News 11.19.12

When talking home automation, it's often a big and expensive undertaking. Currently on Kickstarter, Spark Socket is a wi-fi adapter that screws onto a dimmer bulb and then into your existing light sockets so that you can control the lamp from your smartphone. Perfect for renters and upgrading over time, you can start with one sconce or one room and add Sparks as you go. The campaign runs until December 13.
