I've bought a good pile of those from a local Do-It-Yourself brand
("OBI"), which was this product:
Though I don't use the original firmware, but started to write
something on my own: https://github.com/jbglaw/obi-steckdose .
That's not completely finished, but my intent is to have the plug
available for powering the device, as well as using the ESP8266's
serial port (in combination with a MAX232) to make it a terminal
server as well. (Also, it shall be able to log any traffic to a Syslog
server, so that occassional Oopses etc. are preserved.)

  As an alternative which can actually still be bought, I'd like to
evaluate the Shelly Plug S (https://shelly.cloud/shelly-plug-s/), but
I don't have it here right now.
