They Work Perfectly And Have A Great Range!

Now, with this small appliance in hand its easy. One handheld turns off five lamps (or other items plugged in). The units that plug into the outlets are larger than others I’ve used, but this was the one product that allowed for five outlets to be controlled with one hand held. You’ll love it. Works through walls too.

They do what they’re supposed to and the only thing I wish they had were multi controllers so you could keep them in separate rooms since they have a pretty long-range reach.

I bought these just because they were cool, but i never ended up using them on anything, i’ve used them a couple times for pranks, but that was it, they sit in my closet.

The lights sit on the floor and the switch is on the cords. I have 5 of them projecting up the walls for extra lighting, they are hidden behind furniture. With the remote I can control all 5 at once without bending or crawling on the floor. It’s awesome. I also have another for turning on/off Christmas decorations, tree, windows, etc.

I can turn on my individual yard lights from my patio. Overhead party lights along house eve on one, Party lights on breezeway eve over ornamental garden on circuit two. Party lights in gazebo & ‘Park’ lights on the third. Low voltage path lights on the forth.

Last but not least are the party lights I use to light my breezeway of my shop as I shut off the various shop lights and still have light to see to return to house where I can simply push number 5 to turn these off. The control units have manual switches that allow the turn on from my shop breezeway as evening light fades.

The same button is used to turn ‘off’ or ‘on’ thus making it difficult to use for the fountain as it takes a minute for the water to begin flowing. The fountain blocks the signal and being impatient the tendency is to keep turning it off and on, without knowing if signal activated the unit. However the ’3 Pack’ of another brand I previously had works for this as it has separate buttons for ‘off’ and ‘on.’ Between the two I have the perfect system(s).

I have some bookcase light and wanted to be able to control them remotely. These do the job but are very large. You may as well plan on buying a short extension cord for each if you have any need to use the rest of the outlets. This is true for a four plug outlet. In this day and age these units should be 1/3 the size and/or engineered not to lock outlets.

I have lamps in the corners of my living room that I can no longer get to without crawling over furniture. These outlets make that an easy fix. I also use on for my WD-Live TV as it locks up fairly frequently and needs to be unplugged and plugged back in. Now I can accomplish this from the couch!

Only down side is I haven’t found an easy way to incorporate these into my Logitech Harmony One remote as it is IR and these are RF.

Loved It So Much I Bought More

Some of these switch outlets were not conveniently located for table light location. This product enabled her to put the lamps where she wanted them and then use the remote as her light switch. It has been very helpful and much safer for her. Although we’ve owned this product less than 60 days, it is operating as it is billed; and the price was very fair for what you got. I would buy this one again.

But needed more receivers to accomodate my 2 “Subwoffers” for my sound system and 3 seperate sets of lights..

I wanted them to be controlled by one “transmitter”..

This unit does the job.. Have had no issues . 1 of the receicers is block by a “large” plant and one is “inside” my electric fireplace enclosure because of the outlet location …. no problem with reception… all work as advertised.

Would recommend this product..

Unfortunately there is no on/off signal its really just one button … so if I can’t just turn off the light in my office from my bedroom, I have to get up and make sure I didn’t just turn it on.

Also they partially block the outlet so you can only use a normal two prong plug in the 2nd outlet. (Easily fixed with a 2-6 outlet adapter if necessary).

The remote takes a weird battery, so I bought a cheap 5 pack on Amazon, if I picked up the same type locally I’d either not find it or pay 10 times as much.

Given the price this is an excellent product. I would pay slightly more for a model which had both on and off buttons rather than just one toggle button.

The wireless outlets have numbers on them already so you know which outlets work what switch. However, the wireless outlets are very bulky. Most of the time they will take up the entire wall outlet.

As I walk in my house, I can turn lights on throughout the house before even entering any further. I also have my portable, floor fan plugged into one. Anything plugs into these. I can control everything from my couch without getting up. Not sure if that’s good or not! ….. Next, the coffee maker!!!! Lol …… 5 stars from me!

I got this set about a year ago – plugged them in and plugged in the light fixtures and that was it. It was as easy as that and so far not a single issue… every button on the remote matched from day 1 to now… no loss of connectivity. I’ve given 4 stars ONLY because i think they could probably be a little less bulky and maybe a 2nd remote because i imagine if you lose that remote the whole system is no good.
