Did you understand post#1.
Wireless power outlets are <=US$6 if you buy them in a 3-pack or 5-pack.
A $1 433Mhz transmitter connected to any Arduino can control one or all of them.
Safe and easy.

Or, you might  might be able to fit the relay into an outlet box, like you have in the walls in your home.   They are inexpensive at the home improvement store.  
There's enough room for a single relay board, maybe a double, behind an ac socket in the blue plastic boxes.

Make sure you don't use a cord with a loose grounding wire wrapped around the three conductors  :o  :smiley-eek-blue: . . .  not that I have first hand experience of that causing a short and blowing the trace off the board . . .  :smiley-roll-blue:

Also, the single relay boards don't seem to have the opto-isolaters that the multi-relay boards have.

yes I did , but the Idea I want to use relay instead of IR

thanks

The relay is safely hidden inside the wireless power outlet.
And the Arduino can control them (more than one) with a 315Mhz or 433Mhz radio signal (not IR).
Call it a "wireless power tail" if you want.
