There is a lot of interest in using these small ultra low cost modules in home automation work. They have wifi capability and some GPIO pins for interfacing with hardware.
They can be programmed in an Arduino type environment. I have recently tried out my LightwaveRF libraries which were originally developed for Arduino AT Mega 328 cpus on these devices.
The LWRx library works with no significant updates. This means these modules can be used to construct devices which will respond to signals from the LightwaveRF link or remote controls. The wifi capability of the modules open up lots of other possibilities including parallel contro direct by wifi and reporting status back.
I am currently investigating using the LWTx library with these devices but that is a bit more complex due to the use of hardware timers.

Updated libraries now support Tx operation from ESP8266 modules.
