What will happen if I turn off a LED bulb at the wall switch or power outlet?
Since the LED bulb is already paired to the TCP Gateway, turning it off at the wall switch or power outlet will not do any long term damage to the system.
The LED bulb will not be able to be controlled at this time, and will appear 'offline' in the App.
As soon as the bulb is switched on again it will then pair up with the Gateway again and you will be able to access it once more through the remote or mobile application. Note, however, that if there is a 2nd bulb in your network which was using this 1st bulb as a router to communicate with the Gateway and there is no alternative route available, it is possible that this bulb will also become offline.
Generally it is best to keep the bulbs powered at all times and control them using the App.
Also local integration seems very plausible (similar to HUE) as it can work without the cloud:
You can access the TCP Web application on your computer using any of the Web browsers listed below.
You must be on the same local network as the Gateway , this cannot be done remotely (i.e. from your workplace)
When the application starts, it automatically searches for your Gateway through your wireless router. If the application finds a Gateway on your local network, it automatically connects to the associated lighting network.
I will probably pick up a black friday kit to play with if there are any at my store.
