I’ve used Wise Controls hardware and software (www.wisecontrols.com) for many years now to control my lights around my house. I’m very sure the world has moved on from a technology view point and there are better solutions out there but it works for me. This is a picture of a 5M long multi-colour LED strip in my kitchen all controlled wirelessly.
I’ve been able to control my lights from my iPhone for a while using this interface. It is ok, but can’t do many things and the tooling is not updated by the firm.
So I could automatically schedule my lights and remotely trigger them I managed to reverse engineer the interface and it is very simple to trigger an already configured signal.

I started writing an Apple Watch interface to do the same but stumbled upon this great project instead that has a great iOS and WatchOS interface, and is easy configurable.
For a configuration standpoint it is very flexible and easy to insert the URLs as above. For example:
“headline1”: “Stair Lights”,
This is what it looks like in its simplest form on my watch.
