NEW YORK, Feb. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Continuing its 166-year history of offering the Best, the Only and the Unexpected, Hammacher Schlemmer introduces The Smartphone Light And Appliance Controller, a system that enables remote control of lights and appliances while you are away from home.

The Smartphone Light And Appliance Controller includes a plug-in dimmer for a lamp, a wall dimmer for a ceiling fixture, a plug-in on/off switch for a single appliance, and a base station that communicates with each through a home's existing wireless network.

"Just download an app to an iPhone or Android smartphone," explained Hammacher Schlemmer's General Manager Fred Berns. "Your phone communicates with the system over the Internet, allowing you to dim a bedside lamp, ceiling fixture, or turn on a TV as if you were inside your home."

The on/off switch supports appliances up to 1,500 watts, the ceiling fixture dimmer replaces an existing wall light switch (requires rewiring), and the system requires a wireless router with port forwarding enabled for access via the Internet.

The Smartphone Light And Appliance Controller is available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $149.95. For more information about this product, please visit The Smartphone Light And Appliance Controller, or contact Trish Hammond at (847) 581-8987 or via e-mail at pr@hammacher.com.
