    I was thinking the same thing about the wifi. Probably for remote controlling from your average smart-phone, but if that is all you are after, you could probably buy separate gadgets at a fraction of the cost.

    Though they are apparently still working out the kinks in it, last x-mas, my husband bought me a device called a Quirky Spotter, which is supposed to monitor temps, noise, motion, etc, and send alerts to your phone. If they every work out all the kinks, it would be a good gadget. But a malfunctioning gadget like that will give you more panic attacks than peace of mind. When we called them to tell them we were having issues, they told us they were aware it did not work as advertised.... practically selling prototypes. (link below)

    Assuming they could make something like that actually work, in conjunction with phone-controlled outlets to run various devices (they do exist), you could rig something similar yourself.

    Hey guys,

    After a lot of consideration, we finally decided to condense what we were working on and release a version that much more universal.

    We would love to hear what you all think.
