Found 14th Oct 2015
Found these by accident this morning on Amazon, quick check around and for a pack of four, this does seem to be the cheapest.

Product detail:
This radio-controlled socket with controller for use with any domestic appliance. Switch off appliances wasting energy in stand-by to save money and reduce your carbon footprint. The Radio controlled socket is ideal for hard to reach plugs or for people who have restricted mobility as it can be used with any domestic appliance and works with a remote control that can be configured to control up to four different sockets. The remote control does not require direct line-of-sight to operate. It will work even when the socket is hidden behind furniture or in an adjacent room.

These apparently use 0.3w each, so 1.2w for a set. If you use them for lighting and other things with no standby usage, you might actually end up using more power...

Same thing is £15 at ASDA

​I use my for convenience for lights and and lamps, anything with an inconvenient power switch plus you can set multiple sockets to the same button so all the lights come on or go off with one press.

​The pi mote control board looks good but not sure about how you get started with the software / firmware etc - I've only got a passing familiarity with python.

​Thought Asda's ones were status brand, you sure?

Just to mention - these are RF controlled. So won't work with most multi-remotes. (Logitech Harmony and the like)

There are a few high end ones which do RF. But most are IR only.

Nothing against the deal, just a heads up. (I use remote power controllers with a Logitech Harmony but had to hunt about a bit to find ones that use IR ...)

I am not a member of prime and just purchased these for the £16.98 price stated above so I am guessing this price applies to everyone who might be purchasing these.

My raspberry pi is the 'hub' of my home automation system.. When I unlock the front door, certain lights turn on in my home (depending on time of day etc..).

I'm currently working on an way to hard reset my router when connectivity is dropped.

did you buy with something else, as you need to spend more than £20 for free delivery without prime.

That's for only 3 plugs and they use IR so require line of sight.

It is only 3 plugs. I use them for my whole home sound system which covers 2 floors and it works fine through the wooden/ plaster board ceiling and brick walls. (The speakers have separate power supplies). No need for direct IR sensor to sensor line of sight.

Thanks for that.

Looks very cool but a bit above my tech level i think....

Thanks in advance

Should be relatively simple.. schedule a job to ping a particular IP (google would work), and if the ping fails, power-cycle the router.


Cheers for this. Ordered and will be with me tomorrow :-)

That works out at 10.5kw per year if plugged in 24/7 - not really worth worrying about.

Or for ppl who have restricted mobility(_;), in other words if your a human dusty bin like ma self who's only exercise is lifting ma arm tae swig oot ma btl or crawling doon the stairs tae the chip van
a do hope tae god the TV remote disnae get the bullet fae the couch arm, bloody space age gadgets a jist don't know:p

Can't wait to try out some pimote stuff with these. I did ask if these worked with it and engergenie told me they did.

similar 3 pack in Class Ohlson for £9.99 but thanks OP

Is this deal over?? Wanted to buy a pack but price has gone up. Or is there another option that I've missed?
