An Energenie Extension Lead, with a Raspberry Pi controller board.

Was looking to extend my collection of Energenie bits (going a bit gadget crazy since I got my Amazon Echo) and was going to buy the Extension Lead.

The lead is available from Amazon at £25.95 ( amazon.co.uk/Ene…8S/ ), but this combo is cheaper and includes the Raspberry Pi controller which retails at around a tenner ( amazon.co.uk/Ene…QO/ )

Great deal I thought!

Do you need to purchase anything else to connect to echo?

Does this work with the app? Alexa?

Yeah, you need the Energenie gateway. ( amazon.co.uk/Ene…EHC )

Just be aware that the range of the Energenie gateway is not that good. Adapters around 15m away don't reliably turn on. Or off, for that matter.

I have this issue. None of my plugs work reliably.

What do people actually use these for after the novelty wears off? I would find it as quick to turn a light on manually in my home as it would be to get my phone/controller out and do it using that. The same goes for most devices. If I power down many things in my house via the socket I'd then have to manually turn them on again after the mains power has been returned.
