This distinct privilege resides with iDevices Instinct Wi-Fi enabled lighting dimmer.

One of the great things about the Eureka Park section of CES is that you can stumble across the cool new ideas that have yet to make it to market. Such is the case with LifeDoor, designed by a former firefighter to protect his family.
