    How does this work? Will it really simply turn on and off and light or tv you point it at ect.? That seems too unrealistic.

    i think you need one of those computer controlled houses. I've heard of ones you text and it sets the lighting, temperature etc. for when you come home i'd imagine this would be something similar.

    it must be, unless your tv connects to a wireless network there's no other way it can control it. No infa red is there? And as for the lights nothing short of a hand coming out of the phone and flicking the switch will work.

    Yeah I realize that, I'm really just curious as to how this thing works.

    It's designed, as far as I can see, to work with Crestron or AMX control systems over a LAN, which requires reprogramming your system to recognise the commands from the iPhone.

    And yeah, since Crestron systems can cost £10,000+, this is for rich people.
