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.

Now for the PowerShell code:

Once the function has been loaded into your PowerShell console we can turn on and off each of the sockets, for example

Energenie-PSFunctionExample

This is one of those moments when an image fails to express the sheer excitement of a lamp going on and off!

If you forget to plug in your Arduino an exception will be thrown for example

Energenie-PSFunctionExampleError

What’s Next/Further thoughts

  • Program some keyboard shortcuts to power the sockets on and off.
  • Create a web front end and on that note I should point out that Energenie have another solution the LAN Power Management System
