Default Clicker Box help

I am still haveing a prablem looking for the Box to turn on any Electronic device that is Pluged into it.

I did have a post but I could not find it to ad to it.

It is a Box that you Plug into the Outlet and then you would then Plug say a Light into the Box.

Then you would have a Clicker or a Remote and wen you hit the button it would turn the Box Pluged into the Outlet on or off.

They have these everywere.

I am looking for ones that say have One Remote but come with say 5. Box devices that you plug into all your Outlets.????????

You could do a DIY project with this. It would be very simplistic!

Order one of these (there free)

http://www.okwenclosures.com/products/okw/minitec.htm

I got a bunch of them for free through there sample program (at the bottom of the page)

Buy one of these boards (you can just take out the microcontroller and use in a full blown project)
http://store.makerbot.com/electronic...s/arduino.html

and you can follow these intructions to build the IR remote here



Then you just need an AC relay that meets the regulation voltage of your house.
Grab yourself a standard plug you don't need. Snip the end up up your two poles. into the relay.


Then when you turn the push the button the IR sends the command to turn on the relays electromagnets.
Once that does all it will do is connect the power from the wall to the power to a product you plug into the unit.

To make a plug just measure your outlit and cut those dimenstion into the unit. Then make some metal and pinch it so when the plug goes in the whole it fits in nicely.


For example


___
___ < cord
___
^plug
