why would anyone need a system for remote control of lightbulbs,

Because people are like the novelty, are lazy, or the elimination of common touchpoints. Whatever, that wasn't the point. The point is that an IT services provider could do a better job of updating their paying customers on the current status of a weeklong outage. My customers certainly expect/demand better than that from me. Wink | ;)

why would anyone "outsource" such a simple function to the internet?!

I agree that it sounds nuts, but hey, it has worked well for years. Apparently, the hub device has to be connected to the mothership to handle the Alexa integration...not sure...I don't do iot, I do lob! Laugh | :laugh: The app still works (didn't know this last night) if it was logged in prior to last week with all their services crashed.
