I want to get power receptacles controlled via web and buttons.
- I need an one-room system, wireless.
- Electric power system here is bad for signal transferring. WiFi (Z Wave, ZigBee, etc), BlueTooth frequencies are fine.
- Ok price, up to 25$ per receptacle (not including other parts).
- Only on/off for controlling simple devices plugged in. Status isn't necessary.
Also, please, don't propose inflexible closed undocumented and proprietary protocols' devices. Here's "and", not "or". For example, Z Wave is proprietary but seems ok. Open source solutions which are free but are a coder's scribbles with a long dead community aren't good for me. The receptaplaces controller functional should be expandable with sensors, actuators, etc.
Difficulty level: mid-tier, I'm an IT guy, but not a hardware guy. So, no circuits' designs from scratch, please, anything from the "arduino" level is ok.
Please, give me the recommendations with a rough pricing and links.
