ReStore find: Connected by TCP starter kit

ReStore find: Connected by TCP starter kit

Click to view full size image

Found this at the Montréal ReStore. The place was basically a Home Depot clearance section and there was a LOT of Connected by TCP stuff (also a few Philips Hue kits for $100 each). I tried to set this up today but I couldn't get it working right. The base station seemed to be messing up my router settings for some reason. Maybe I will try again later.

The Restores in the Toronto area also sells a lot of stuff that got cleared out at Home Depot. I picked up the same TCP connected kit and F4T5/BL that you got. Mine set up fairly easily but I found the Android app was bit clunky.

I actually managed to get them working. The network issues were an unrelated problem.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Sadly the wireless range is less than adequate for my intended use, so I'll have to find another way to use them or just trade them to someone here.

To each their own, but to me the idea of controlling my light bulbs with my cell phone just seems kind of too connected if you know what I mean...I'm perfectly fine flipping a light switch. However, in the rare case that a switch is hard to get to or one of those situations where the socket is always powered and you have to loosen the bulb to turn it off, I could see this being useful. Otherwise, I'll stick with flipping a switch.

Are these still working, I was under the understanding that TCP turned off there web service making them pretty much useless unless you log in via the local network ? because the Re-store near me has dozens of them ...

I haven't been using them so I wouldn't know. Obsolescence is awesome, isn't it?

It really is, especially when every other part of the system works, and they are now affordable, but they won't share the coding so I can build my own little server for lighting control on a Raspberry Pi...
