Cheapest Way for Remote Control of Lights
My shop is in a separate building about 100' from the house. A wifi extender delivers a good enough signal such that I can watch HD video via Roku in the shop. That is my only connectivity.
Occasionally, I forget to turn off one of more of the three lights inside the shop. Our schedule in the main house is that we never notice a light being left on in the shop until we are getting ready for bed. Also, it seems this only happens when it is cold, rainy or snowing, and windy. My enthusiasm for going over to the shop is at a low ebb.
Is there an inexpensive way for me --- via an app on the phone, I suppose, or even via my PC --- to control those light switches from the main house and thus avoid my trips in the rain and wind and cold?
