Monster developed their Monster Central family of products to make home automation simple to install, convenient to use, and affordable. A great example is the Monster Central Power Control 100MC module, which when used with the Monster Central GTW 100 Internet Gateway, lets you control and monitor the power to a plugged-in device in your home from anywhere in the world using a smartphone or tablet. And you can set it up yourself in just a few minutes. The system is modular, so you purchase and set up only what you need. The Power Control 100MC plugs into a standard AC wall outlet, and has one AC outlet placed on the side to provide a space-saving connection for a lamp, appliance, or other electrical device.
