What functionality does the Pi-mote control board add to my Raspberry Pi?
The 433 MHz radio antenna inside the Energenie Pi-mote control board gives wireless capabilities to your Raspberry Pi. This Raspberry Pi breakout board is designed to be used in conjunction with Pi-mote RF sockets, which can be found here.

With a range of 30m through walls and ceilings, you can control the electrical power switches throughout a property from a single Raspberry Pi.

What could I achieve with the Pi-mote control board?
The possibilities are numerous when adding real-world, interactive capabilities to your Raspberry Pi. Whether you are newcomer or a seasoned hardware hacker, you can really take advantage of the increased control of your power usage.

Most simply, this could be used as a solution to grant access to power sockets that are difficult to gain access to – an essential for people with mobility issues.
Studies have shown that 10 per cent of electric costs occur as a result of needlessly leaving peripherals on overnight, but with the Pi-mote, the extra cost of your bill could be put to better use.

What is compatible with the Pi-mote control board?
The Pi-mote control board has 26 pin sockets and is compatible with any Raspberry Pi models that use a 26 pin or 40 pin GPIO. For the 40 pin models, however, a number of the remaining pins will be inaccessible.

The Pi-mote board is also compatible with all of the 433 MHz Pi-mote remote control sockets.
