$120 gets you a SmartThings hub, and a WeMo-style smart outlet to get you started. Out of the box, this will let you use your phone (including an iPhone) to control any lamp or appliance that plugs into the wall, but you’ll get a lot more out of the system when you start attaching multipurpose sensors, arrival detectors, water leak sensors, and security cameras.
