Lights, power, action! Smartplugs with a twist

"Seriously? $160-worth of three plugs to turn on a light three seconds after I would have passed the switch that's on the wall next to me as I enter the room."

The switching off sounds even worse. From the article:

"You walk out, and it switches off according to pre-set time that you set (5, 10 or 15 minutes)."

If those are the only options, with five minutes being the shortest amount of time, that strikes me as wasting electricity.

Problem not solved? Problem not even found!
