So to summarize we have collected all the RF codes for my Energenie Power Strip, created a Sketch on an Arduino connected to a an RF transmitter the only thing left it to use PowerShell to send Serial commands.

What’s Next/Further thoughts

  • Create a web front end and on that note I should point out that Energenie have another solution the LAN Power Management System
