1. A device, comprising:a light socket attachment that mates with a light socket receptacle of a lighting device when the light socket attachment is removably coupled to the lighting device, wherein the light socket receptacle of the lighting device is a three-terminal power connection light socket receptacle;
a communications system comprising a non-wired communications device;
a wired communications adapter contained within the communications system, wherein the wired communications adapter provides a link between the communications system and the light socket receptacle, and wherein the wired communications adapter is configured to transmit or receive data via the three terminals of the three-terminal power connection light socket, wherein a first terminal and a second terminal of the three terminal power connection light socket transmit data to the communications system, wherein a third terminal separate from the first terminal and the second terminal of the three terminal power connection light socket receives data from the communications system;
a light bulb receptacle configured to receive a light bulb; and
circuitry that receives electric power through the light socket attachment, the circuitry directing a specified amount of power from the received electric power to the communications system while directing remaining power of the received electric power to the light bulb receptacle.
