I agree with you and have partially solved it by solving another first world problem. What do I do with my old smartphone since I just got this HOT new one? Why take the SIM card out and make it the remote control of course! I have B&N Nook Color running KitKat in the living room and a Galaxy S with KitKat running in the bedroom. Hell some of the cheap Chinese knockoffs are cheaper than some of the smart switches I have seen. You could replace the wall switch with a bunch of them and wire the charger for the device into the wall.
