    Unfortunately, after a quick look, I could not find much about the protocol to talk to these lights, but what I did find references something called Zigbee. That is a wireless protocol that Android does not support.

    I've heard of that before. some home automation stuff. Hmm. I would have thought it to be more proprietary than that. I wonder if there is a way to port the "v-link" wirelss model through a router and access it online.

    Thanks for looking into it.

    Sorry, I should not have said Android does not support, I do not believe there is a phone with a zigbee radio in it. Since zigbee is what is uses to talk to the Vertex, you need special built hardware with Android and a driver for the radio running on it. So, it won't work on a normal consumer phone with Android.

    I just ordered a vertex illumina and controlling this on my phone would be great.
