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.

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.
