I is it possible to turn a wall outlet on/off by way of a cell phone app?
My initial thinking was to have a device that lived between the outlet and the wall. It would have an IPV6 address and I would be able to enable or disable whatever was plugged into it via the cell phone.
Does this sort of thing exist. I would need many of them and they would have various uses.
My first use would be to allow a gate to open into my back yard.
Before I decide what hardware would be best for that, I need to find an ultra-cheap outlet that allows this, and have a clear understanding of the software that is used for it.
1) Is there open-source software that not tied to any particular device?
2) What are the non vendor specific keywords that describe this technology?
