Works fine for me on Chrome. prpr Looks like the differences between the various plugs are covered HERE. I thought the web site was ok, in fact the API documentation is pretty good compared to some I have seen...! (see HERE)Damned right. It crashed my browser. Couldn't view anything.
Thanks, but why couldn't they say that on the original site I wonder? Anyway, it doesn't help hugely when they rattle on about things called Groups and Scenes, as though everybody is supposed to know what they are without being defined.
The phrase "Damning with faint praise" springs to mind. Most API documentation is non-existent. This is better, but in absolute terms, well...the API documentation is pretty good compared to some I have seen...!
As predicted, it seems like Energenie are out of business if their web server (http://www.energenie.com) is anything to go by.You are at the whim of the people running the server who can change the protocol, shutdown the server, make it pay only etc. and who's to know how long company X running the server is going to stay in business anyway.
Do you have a catalogue number for this strip? I tried looking for "remote controlled socket strip" at screwfix, and came up with a pack of three energenie individual sockets that have a remote control, but not a socket strip like you describe....
It's based on a cheap four-way
IRRF-controlled socket strip available from Screwfix, and a Raspberry Pi. The RPi takes control of the socket strip by emulating the original handset, via an optocoupler replacing the socket strip's IRRF receiver -
Yeah, i tried doing that, but for soem reason it didn't work very well, I suspect the contacts are such light weight things they cannot handle the inrush current of the switch mode power supply. Most of these type of devices seem to warn against using with CFL or LED bulbs, I suspect for the same reason.Then use an 'electronic' one?
do you find only the delivery costs steep?These folks seem to have the right idea and some interesting looking stuff.
Shame they're in Bulgaria though as the delivery costs are a bit steep:
