If you're looking into starting a smart home, smart lighting is a good jumping off point, and the WiOn Indoor Wi-Fi In-Wall Light Switch is a product I think might make a good initial first step. That's because this smart light switch can automate all sorts of lighting in your home, from your overhead lights, to your ceiling fan lamps and even your porch lights. Not to mention you can totally program your lights to turn on and off at different times throughout the day, and even set them to a sunrise and sunset schedule. This means you'll never fumble for your keys at your front door again because your porch lights will already be on. I also means not having to walk down dark stairs in the morning to make your cup of coffee. Ultimately, it means the start to your life in a smart home.
The WiOn switch has a 4-star rating on Amazon with users claiming to love its plug-and-play functionality and how well it works overall, although some users claim to have experienced a difficult and frustrating set up.
