I was in Home Depot today and picked up some WiFi controlled outlets called "ECO plugs".
I could not find them on the HD web site
- they were by the Christmas lights, timers, etc

Here is a YouTube video that shows the setup, timers, etc
There are two in box for $29.88. They let you control 120V devices from your Apple or Android Smart Phone.
There are various types of timers that can be used with outlet modules.
The instructions were a bit confusing but I found clarification in the Google Apps store:
I think I see why people are having problems with this. The instructions are not written correctly.
You can not get into the ECO settings screen, until the device is connected with your phone.
What it should say is to go to the settings ON YOUR PHONE.
Then connect via WiFi directly to the eco plug.
After that you can get into the eco program settings and connect the eco to the Internet by providing your WiFi password in eco program.
It's pretty slick now. Thank you reviewers so I knew something wasn't right, and it wasn't just me having the issue
