This question already has an answer here:
Recently I got cheap RF remote controlled plug points. I hacked the remote to control buttons using raspberry pi and it works great. My question is, is there any generic RF transmitter and receiver module? Receiving side, i want few GPIO pins so that we can control multiple motors or relays. I saw xbee modules, but they are very costly. Is there any such cheap RF transmitter receiver? Please help me how to go about it.
