Here's a document detailing a simple wireless mesh network running on a number of wireless power points. Each power point contains a timer switch and a power monitor. The mesh network is self learning. A data concentrator works through the various power points it discovers and forms a network. It can then program ('programme' for plan) the on/off timing of the power point's switch and monitor its power consumption. The mesh network requires a small amount of system resources and is designed to run on top of existing real-time embedded applications, for example, electricity measurements.

The CC430F6137 is a monolithic MCU+RF transceiver from Texas Instruments. The device combines the MSP430 core with a CC1101 RF transceiver on a single piece of silicon. A single CC430 runs the mesh network, electricity measurement, real-time clock and timer switch function.
