1. An intelligent switchable device for selectively conducting electricity, said device comprising:
a switch for connecting a power line to a load, said switch having a control input;
at least one sensor for producing a sensor signal indicative of a condition;
a transceiver for (i) transmitting data, including communications and (ii) receiving data, including remote instructions and rules;
non-volatile memory adapted for storing (i) a program having instructions and (ii) rules for determining whether to render said switch conductive or non-conductive;
a control circuit in communication with said transceiver, said sensor and said switch, said control circuit producing a command signal in response to a sensor signal as determined by said rules, said control circuit having a first mode of operation when the control circuit issues a command signal to render said switch in a conductive state and a second mode of operation when the control circuit issues a command signal to render said switch in a non-conductive state, and a third mode of operation where the rules command the switch to be non-conductive.
