Turn it ON and OFF, and possibly dim it, what else? The controller though has the task of deciding what to do. And as an aside, shouldn't the SOCKET be given an IP address rather than the light-bulb? Why the need to identify WHAT ROOM is the light bulb screwed?

What kind of new application can come up with the IoT? It is interesting if the light bulb also has an IP address but what can the network do for this light bulb?
