Electrical sockets controlled via harmony remote?

Found 8th Jan 2011
We have 3 lamps that we have on every night. At the moment we have to manually turn them all on (such a hardship I know....) was thinking about getting timers for them but thought it would be cooler if I could press 'activities - lights' on my harmony 525 instead.

Possible?

The Lime Energy Saving Plug will do it. Quite expensive but you can get the first one for free:

Cheapest way, obviously, is the Morrisons 3-for-£5 remote controlled plugs, but they have their own (RF) remote control that isn't compatible with Harmony.

Remote control plugs are usually wireless (RF). Only the Lime Plug is IR.

Just went for three remote controlled plugs from Morrisons in the end. £4 and saves messing around
