I purchased the Energenie Pi-mote controller board and 2 plug sockets for my Raspberry Pi B last week and it arrived a few days ago much to my excitement. I followed the online instructions on the Energenie website (https://energenie4u.co.uk/res/pdfs/ENER314%20UM.pdf) to program the first socket, and it worked perfectly. Yesterday I altered the script to program the second socket and it also worked as expected.
I set the Pi up to turn a socket on/off using a web interface and this also worked perfectly when I tested it.
I left the Pi switched on for several days while connected to my Ethernet. However when I tried using the web interface this morning, nothing happened. Rebooting the Pi didn’t help.
I tried re-programming a socket all over again by pressing the green button, waiting for the red light to flash and then using Energenie’s suggested script but this failed to work - the light on the socket kept on flashing intermittently, it was as if no RF signal had been sent out at all from the Pi controller board.
I’m just wondering if my Pi controller board is faulty, and if so, is it possible to return it for a replacement?
Thanks for any help,
