Re: [PLUG] Internet Lights and X10 Replacements

While I'm deeply concerned with internet-connected things that control my ability to keep breathing (like my car), I'm much less concerned about things that may blink without my say-so. Generally if my light bulbs were to turn themselves on and off without my permission, I'd probably just unscrew them....

Yeah, don't.  Just don't.
The car that just got hijacked remotely is just the beginning, imo.

Good luck.
