New technology is bringing the smart grid down to the level of the light bulb, giving each bulb its own Internet address. Connected wirelessly to the network, such lights could be monitored and controlled from any Internet-enabled device. For example, when a smart meter reported high electrical demand, unneeded lights could be turned off or dimmed to save energy.
