I still like the idea of clapping your hands to turn off the lights but other than on and off, The Clapper doesn't do much else. Philips' (PHG) Hue series of light bulbs have wireless built into them so they can be controlled and programmed by a mobile app. You can do things like dim the lights, switch colors or check if lights were left on while on vacation. The latest version of Hue can be set to turn off lights when you leave the house and allows users to create "recipes," like making the lights blink when dinner is ready.
