Ken & R-E's Internet controlled Christmas lights

Internet Controlled Christmas Lights in Fairbanks, Alaska, USA.
This project started in 2010, when Ken and Rebecca-Ellen connected their Christmas tree lights to the internet and allowed vistors from around the world to turn the lights on and off.
The lights moved outside in 2011, as it was quite annoying to have the lights blink on and off ALL THE TIME inside the house.
The 2012 season offered the ability to control the lights surrounding the windows and the roof.

Christmas 2013 brings more lights. You can control the lights along the roof, windows, columns, door, and the lights in the wreath. We also updated the page with our current outside temperature.
