(a) an old mobile/cell phone(free hopefully)

(b) a 5V power supply. A cell phone charger with a micro USB type B cable will work as your 5V power supply but if you are buying a 5V power supply anywhere, particularly on eBay, be very careful and make sure it is safe. Again, you will probably have a few of these lying around so no extra cost.

(c) A remotely controlled socket.

 For UK type sockets you will need to use Status Sockets. We have tested them with our Module. Other brands may work but we can't test every brand. Status sockets  are widely available:https://www.amazon.co.uk/Status-Remote-Control-Socket-White/dp/B007Y7D8Z6/ref=sr_1_3?crid=1QY6ZWYL0NBC4&dchild=1&keywords=status%2Bremote%2Bcontrol%2Bsocket&qid=1590688132&s=diy&sprefix=status%2Cdiy%2C150&sr=1-3&th=1 and only cost about £8. They are rated at 240V and 13 Amp.

Etekcity UK sockets also work with our Module. They can be got here:https://www.amazon.co.uk/Programmable-Electrical-Household-Appliances-Operating/dp/B01N9NLQ8L/ref=sr_1_12?adgrpid=57948928226&dchild=1&gclid=CjwKCAjww5r8BRB6EiwArcckC36ziKU6RxZiuLBkLh9W77nk4tW5J532d9KF29NYfWjki8f2YDjEtRoC1poQAvD_BwE&hvadid=291338789644&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=1007850&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=b&hvrand=15482524232415452445&hvtargid=kwd-50256656275&hydadcr=18295_1758399&keywords=etekcity&qid=1602693207&sr=8-12&tag=googiehydra-21
