    Yes, once you have set up your account in the online portal as well as on your phone, you can activate them remotely over a cellular network connection.

  • I was able to control my lights even after having turned off wifi on my phone. There was much more lag between issuing commands and seeing a response (3-5 seconds compared to 1/2 second or less over wifi)

  • As long as you are signed in on the app, it will let you control the lights from the phone or iPad that is connected via a cellular network. As far as I know, I don't think you can control it via text message or phone call though depending on what you were asking.
