Wirelessly Controlled Lighting
Up to 25% of the energy used in your home can be consumed by lighting according to GreenWave; their new Energy Star certified LED bulbs are one easy solution to cut those costs through smart management. These lights come with Internet connectivity built in to connect seamlessly with your phone, laptop, and even your TV (if it has Web capabilities). Using GreenWave's app, you can merely turn the lights in your home on and off, or program them to adapt to outdoor light levels, motion sensors, or even adjust the color of the lighting based on the time of day. The bulbs were announced in late 2012 and are available in Europe now (with a U.S. release soon to follow).
