I first had the idea to develop a smart remote once I got my first Hue Bulbs. I could turn off all of the lights at once even. Shutting the lights off to sleep was a finger tap away! My TV did not do this however, as it is older. I thoughts a smart-outlet would fix this, and it kindof did.
I was then able to turn the TV off on command, but I could not turn it back on.
I needed Remoto.
