But are you saying you bought some sort of special light bulb just so you can turn them on or off via the web?
In my day, we would walk to the light switch and turn it off before leaving the house.
Seems like money well spent.
Money well spent indeed ... the bulbs also use alot less energy saving coin , and you can turn them up/down or on/off even remotely. You don't have to remember to switch them off or on before leaving the house ...
