Connected by TCP LED Lighting Control System

For basic lighting automation needs, this TCP kit will do the job nicely -- and it won't break the bank, either. For more advanced features and controls, consider the competition, but be prepared to splurge.

REVIEW

REVIEW

Viper Home

Due to the lower monthly fees, Viper Home is a more intriguing option than Oplink if you want to add accessories like a camera and a siren. If you don't, stick with iSmartAlarm.
