Okay, the last thread was filled up, and was getting stale, but I'm still fully committed to supporting my LBE-building customers. So let's look at this from a different point of view:
What control hardware do you want me to support? There are several remote-controlled power strips on the market. ThomasGanshorn suggested gembird silver shields, but those appear to be EU only.
Having said that, I don't want to use the X10 boxes, 'cause I've already tried and found them frustrating and opaque. Also I'd rather not have to build a custom arduino controller 'cause I'd rather find an off-the-shelf solution we can all be happy with.
But I'm willing to try anything that works, and that we can all work with. So let's discuss this. If you builders can agree on a device I should try, then I'll buy one and do my best to make it work with Artemis.
