    Has anyone seen an outlet that plugs into the wall outlet for power and plugs into a different outlet to pick up the relay coil and put the wall outlet power to the outlet?

    Sorry

    After I reread it I felt the same way-sorry. What I am trying to do is power my subwoofer when my receiver is turned on-the receiver has a power outlet that is not strong enough to power the subwoofer. So I am trying to find a device that can be plugged into a wall outlet and "turned on" when the receiver is turned on. I hope this is more clear!!

    Yeah, sure. What you're after is a one of these -- although for 110V.

    I'm sure that some of our US members can point you in the right direction if this link doesn't provide you enough key words to google something in your neck of the woods.

    I'm fairly confident it has the ordinary full 15A capability since nothing else is stated about it, but let us know what they say.

    Wall mounting relay

    It seems that there should be such things, but there are many issues.
    UL approval, should be possible, but needs a large market.
    Many of the "simple things" which could have educational value for kids are not there.
    Now they want to switch relays from an Iphone, maybe, if they could slow down enough.
    Becoming such a marketing blur of new tech toys.

    This is about as close as I can find today.
