A Great Gift for a Parent/Grandparent

One of the units did not work out of the package until I slapped on the side of it a few times. The red light that indicates power would come on and then fade out. It is supposed to be on when it is plugged in. I was upset because I did not want to send all three of them back because of the one defective unit. Luckily after I slapped on the side of unit number 1 it started working and so far has not been a problem. That’s been at least a week now. Don’t think I will have a major issue with it again. The remote control did come with a battery although it was buried loosely in the packaging so be careful. Amazon assured me that I could have either a refund or replacement within 30 days so that is nice to know! Great for all 3 of my lamps which are a table lamp, a dining room swag light and a floor lamp. Remote control will work through the walls from my bedroom to turn them on or off if I want to. That is approximately 30 feet away through a couple walls. I would purchase again but pay no more than the $25.

They work really well and there is actually no set up. I wanted one outside to turn on Decorative lights and I was concerned it could be damaged or shorted in the rain. I mounted it inside a sealed plastic box and was still able to actuate it from over 40 ft away.

I highly recommend this product.

It can operate 3 three-pronged devices and works flawlessly. The remote is compact and unobtrusive. The remote receptacle switches are not. They are massive heavy white boxes that either hog an entire wall outlet or several outlets worth of space on a power strip. But you do get flexibility and connivence. We use ours for his and hers night stand lights–no more having to lean out of bed to turn off the lamp. Thought about the clapper ala’ “Roseanne”, but it got very poor reviews. Now, what to do with the third switch…. BTW, this would make a great gift for a parent/grandparent. Just bring some power strips and move the furniture to get to their wall outlets.

This product worked out of the box and required no setup whatsoever. The operating range is pretty wide and extends through walls. Also, they each consume just 0.75 watts. (For us, that comes out to about 75 cents a year each.)

The challenge you will probably face is how to fit these things into power strips that are already being used. These devices are BIG! It can be done, but it’s probably easiest to use them in conjunction with an extension cord, where the extension cord would plug into the power strip allowing the device to lay somewhere else.

Outlet Wireless Remote Wall Outlets, Awesome!

Now I can use my clicker to turn on lights all around my apartment. Love it! Easy to set up.

So easy to turn on and off anything plugged into them. Used them at Christmas and also all through the year in various places in my house.

The simply work, and they have worked flawlessly. The only issue is their size. They are annoyingly large. But I do my best to hide them from being visible. I really love this device, especially at this price point.

I just leave it on the coffee table…usually! A surprising annoyance that I never considered is that when you want to turn off your light, it’s actually more work to remember where the remote was last placed than it is to know where the light switch is. But it’s worth that small inconvenience.

Just think about signage on your wall up 10 feet from the floor that you can turn on with a remote! How cool is that? This DSI Outlet Wireless Remote Wall Outlets, 3 Outlets with 1 Remote is the easiest and the coolest product we’ve purchased in a long time.

Every apartment I’ve lived in has zero overhead lighting in the living room and bedrooms. Remote control outlets were the perfect solution. I just leave the switch on the lamp on all the time and control the power with the remote. No more feeling my way to the lamp. This would also be great for a hard to reach outlet that turned something like the christmas tree lights on.

Clicker works greats. Only downside is it is so bulky that you can only use it for one plug in the other plug will be blocked jus enough that it is useless. For the price it is perfect especially when you use it only a couple months out of the year.

With this remote and the three switches you can sit back and relax when you need to turn on or off a light. Ever forget to turn off a light in the kitchen after making a sandwich or snack? Even if you are already in another room and eating just click the button and its taken care of. Do yourself a favor though, don’t misplace the remote:)

This is an excellent product and works very well. While other reviewers are complaining that the battery is not provided and the button is hard to press, I have found the battery provided in the box and the button to be very responsive. The range is amazing and I never had hard time to turn on/off any light remotely. I also like that the local outlet units have their own on/off switch so I don’t have to run around the house to find the remote to turn on/off my light. The only gripe is the size, it is huge and when plugged in to the wall, it blocks the access to the other outlet as well. So maybe the manufacture could make it more compact.
