After removing a rats nest from the roof, I'm thinking of building a
IoT-enabled Rat Trap for in the roof cavity. Does anybody have one of
these modules that I can acquire?

> I'm considering using the ESP8266 modules as
part of a distributed load management system to extract the best $ value
from the solar panels on my roof. The Meridian Power export tariffs
change for the worse in July. So I'm considering a system where
import/export power is measured and reported by a server and remote
devices decide how much power to use based on what is available.
Suggestions and advice welcome. http://openenergymonitor.org/emon/ 
will be my starting point.

easy to control, next will come ventilation, spa and electric car
(dreaming a little here...).

unless someone knows better?
