Good Morning,

Out of curiosity, did anyone make a type of interface for the TCP system.   I see I can send the commands and parse them out, but I wanted to get a feel for what others were doing as well.

Thanks
Larry

A word of caution, don't buy the 4 bulb set. It's more expensive than
the 2 bulb starter, the remote and an extra bulb bought separately.

Or a post or something similar.

This is ZigBee, don't know about the reliability or distances yet.

I have this on the way, it should arrive soon. Folks over on
http://cocoontech.com/ have said that you just follow the js to figure
it out. I hope so.
