Moving into a new house, I felt I needed a way to test the RCDs and wiring on ring mains. It was an excellent opportunity to over-engineer something for the sake of it. What I came up with was a device, that:
Can trip the power from a phone using a bluetooth (serial) connection Is powered by the mains, and therefore needs/has a UPS Is an awesome prank device So far, other than surprising everyone during an unrelated countdown at a party, I detected faulty earth wiring in my new house with it.
