Default Control System operated by iOS / iphone

Hey Guys!!! Do any of you know about a simple control system that SIMPLY provides auxiliary dry contacts (C, NO, NC) for operation by an iphone app?


INTENT: I want to be able to control whatever (lights, garage door opener, refrigerator ON/OFF, whatever....) from an iphone. I don't need/want all the fancy bells & whistles of dimming, changing color of lights, yada yada.....I just want a simple ON and OFF latching (or momentary) contacts.


Anyone know a manufacturer of such a simple "bare bones" controller/app for this?

I don't know, but I would call ADI and ask them.

Thatís cool, but how/where do you wire a momentary switch. You have to be able to override the manual switch or the smart phone bit. Maybe I missed something on the board, but I only saw a set of contacts to do the switching.

Insteon has an app with lots of options. Inexpensive too.
