Remote sockets in the UK
There were none of these when I was looking previously... Now I am tempted, but now is precisely the time for me not to be buying more gadgetry, as I am both time poor and cash poor, hmm... we do need a dimmer switch for the nursery though...
Having done a bit of research LightwaveRF get mixed reviews, initially people very excited with them but then disappointed in the lack of followup - promised new products and improvements to the ropey Android app never arriving. What do I do?
They sell this kit all over the place including Amazon (where it's actually very expensive) but also Maplin and B&Q where there seem to be some bargains.
This looks to be great:
however it seems to be just an image on a website, not sure the product actually exists. It's a remote controlled thermostat for the radiator, seems to be more or less plug and play. You get the wifi link that plugs in to your router, and then you can control individual radiators from your phone. Smart!
