Using a Nokia Lumia or one of the other windows phones you can now control your lights and other appliances (UK only I think).

The system is using LightwaveRF no PC required!

Step 1: Buy one of these LightwaveRF Wifi things and plug it into your Wifi router

I thought pairing the devices was pretty easy (much easier than X10 if you’ve used that and more reliable). LightwaveRF also has the advantage of remembering dim levels.
