Pretty neat little self-contained device which provides 3x240VAC-10A relays which can be switched remotely via WIFI.

UK Online Store

Demo

Ideal for home automation projects and very easily integrated into something like openHAB.

[EDIT] Found some more details here.

Ive got one of these on the way to have a play with, but there are several other devices on aliexpress if you search for IOT relay or wifi relay.

If you're looking at switching 12V as opposed to mains, also search for Wifi370 on AliExpress. Designed for LED control, but each channel can switch 4A.

Search AliExpress for "wifi 240v power switch" and there's lots of WiFi controlled single plugs (some of which look like they'll take NZ plugs) from about US$13, and also this 3 plug pack

Yeah I have got some of the orvibo plugs - they are the same as the arlec one at bunnings for 3x the price (closer to 2x the price now the $ is crap) and the basic white square kankun ones. Both seem to work perfectly from outside the lan as well, I really should look into where they are talking to etc sometime. At the price they are, they are worth it just as timers so you dont have to deal with useless user interfaces and silly little non lit LCD displays on plug in mains timers.

Gotta watch the chinese plug in things. Swapping L and N, or not passing the earth thru arent uncommon. And the earth terminal in the universal sockets like the kankuns have on them often doesnt connect the earth either.

The Wifi 370 seems expensive for what it is. Could just use one of the limitless compatible units. I have one driving about 60w of halogens in some outside lights I am yet to change for LED, and it seems quite happy with that. Dimming curve is totally messed up tho, since it goes from close to 0% on time thru to 100% so about 6 steps down and the halogens have gone really dim and orange but the LEDs dimming at the same time are barely any different.
