Newbie Questions

I just ordered a Vera last night and was wondering what I should use for lamp control that have cfl? Do any retail stores any home automation products? What native iPhone app could be used for remote control?

The only retail store I know that sells Z-Wave based product is Fry's and Lowes. I buy most of my HA gadgets online since they are much cheaper then retail. I just bought 3 GE 3-way kits on Amazon.com for 58 bucks each. At fry's they are 85 dollars. Some places to look besides the shop here is HomSeer.com, automatedoutlet.com, smarthome.com, and asihome.com. For the CFL's I have outdoors I use the Intermatic HA05C. The seem to work fairly well with the CFL's.
