I need a way to power a couple of outlets/power strips using the 12V trigger from my AVR. I figured something like that would be readily available, but I have not found anything via searching here on Google. I thought of rigging something with a some relays, but prefer to just buy something if it's not a fortune. I expected something like this to be readily available, but the only things I have seen are ~$100 or more and often designed for home automation. Some companies (e.g. emotiva) make trigger repeaters to add trigger outputs, but they don't provide switched outlets. (My AVR doesn't have a switched output, and that isn't what I want anyway -- need more power capacity than that.) I have seen some power strips that provide little remote controls to turn them on and off, and some UPS units that have switched outlets, but neither is what I want.
My ideal circuit would be a little wall wart'ish thing or power strip that is controlled by the 12 V trigger from my AVR (e.g. a power strip with a 12 V trigger input to switch a couple of outlets).
Thanks - Don
