I am currently in the process of writing software that will control TPLink Smart Bulbs, Plugs, Switches This software is a plugin that works with a program called EventGhost. EventGhost is an event/action based automation system with a point and click interface and also has real time python scripting. You can have the ability to schedule times when to turn lights on and off. Or to have the lights dim when you turn on the TV. connect it to Push Bullet or to Tasker.. the sky is the limit. There are plugins for MQTT as well as IFTTT. The plugin will also generate an event if you turn a switch or a plug on or off. with bulbs if you change the color or the dim level as well as on or off. So if your watching TV and someone dings the doorbell. it can turn the light on for the person outside. and turn the light on for you (only if the sun has already set.. And Oh it can pause the TV for you as well. Now that's automation!
