1-Wire Power Outlet
This is a computer controllable power outlet that uses a 1-wire dual switch. To not waste the dual switch I cut the shorting bar on the power outlet so that each of the 2 outlets on a standard duplex outlet are controlled separately. The PCB is made to fit snugly behind the outlet and still fit in a standard electrical work box.
