    While we're (sorta) on it - and we've derailed the thread again - how hard is it to set up lights (not lamps) to be run via wifi?

    Actually pretty easy - lemme find the wall switches I bought.... I haven't messed with the 3-way ones, but for a simple on/off switch, easy peasy. You can even put them in groups, like in the morning I walk into the living room and say "Alexa, turn on morning", and the Living room, kitchen and piano lights all come on.

    I've had no problem with the ones I've bought, and most of the switches in my house are smart switches, along with a number of smart plugs. I can even tell Alexa "set home thermostat to 74", and in a few seconds, it's set.

    All of my exterior lights are on smart switches, and grouped as "outside", so Mrs CP can just say "Alexa, turn on outside" - and all of the security lights, back yard lights, shop lights.... they all come on at once.

    Cool! When the time comes, it'll be an electrician installing the thing - but I'll be sure and check it out thoroughly first!

    So that honeywell thermostat works with Alexa too?

    How hard is it to install?

    It's really a piece of cake - they stress that you need a "c" wire in the thermostat wiring bundle, but most houses have that unless they're really old.

    And, yes, we have NINE (8 at the church and one at home) thermostats on one account, and I can even tell Alexa from home to cool down my Church office before I get there.

    There are only a few of us who have the account, so anybody having a meeting or doing anything at the church that wasn't programmed can just text us and we can turn on heat or air from anywhere in the world.

    Why would the Obamas buy a beach front house that will probably be underwater in ten years?

    Barack and Michelle Obama are buying a $15M estate in Martha’s Vineyard

    It will take a lot more than 10 years to see that much sea-level rise. 1 meter is the 100 year guess right now. the house is way more than 1 meter up.
