You may find a “Purgeable” storage space when looking at disk storage and disk usage in modern versions of macOS, including Big Sur, Catalina, Mojave, Sierra, etc, either within the About This Mac > Storage screen, Disk Utility, or the Storage Management section of System Information.
This curiously labeled disk storage item is similar to the “Other” storage space on the Mac that many users wonder about, so if you’re curious what purgeable storage space is, and how to free it up to clear it out, then read on.

You can purchase wireless remote control devices that typically come in packages with one remote control, and some number of devices that you plug into an outlet, and then you plug whatever you want to control into those devices. You can easily find them on Amazon or eBay, or at big box stores or at places like Harbor Freight. On an online site, just search for “Wireless remote controlled outlet”. The main thing you want to make certain of is that they are controlled by radio frequencies, which most are, and not by an infrared signal like most TV remotes. ….. The idea here is that we want the Raspberry Pi to emulate the same signals that pressing buttons on the remote would do. This allows the Raspberry Pi to control the outlets and opens up possibilities limited only by your imagination.
