Arduino Remote Control Outlet

Today i bought an remote control outlet kit from avidsen (2 adapters + remote control)
Using the library and info from here and here, was possible to decode the on/off codes.

After finding these codes, i added and actuator to the platform with two functions on() and off()



Electric water heater


Outlet adapter


Outlet adapter and remote control



Actuator in system


Mobile version





New update: i was forgetting one important thing, set a policy to turn on water heater between 7 am and 8 am and turn off after 8 am.


My policies in system


turn_heater_on policy info

    !!!! IMPORTANT !!!!

    1) Are you sure these remote controled outlets can handle the wattage of the water heater??? Usually they can handle loads of ~1.000watts. DOUBLECHECK!

    2) The plug needs to be properly re-instaled in the cable!


    Sorry, but the first 2 pictures look really dangerous, had to speak out.
