I have used it both outside and inside. Works every time and is very useful. I use it to control my outside low voltage lights and bring it inside to control Christmas lights each December. Easy to use and has worked flawlessly for me for over two years now.
They are used several times a day with no problems. I read one description that said they are outdoor/indoor also. The distance in my office is less than 20 feet, but they work flawlessly. If you use two separate remotes in the same area, Skylink recommends using the two channels so there is no overlapping. I have the Channel A & channel B for separate control over the two lamp sets. One remote even works two lamps. I highly recommend them.
so far, i’ve had to purchase various bands and types of the wireless combinations as i have something set up (wireless outlet) in most of my room throughout the house and i did not want to run into same frequency conflicts. so far, everything works well independently!
We didn’t want it on timer because sometimes my kids liked to blow it up during the day for fun. So this remote control served its purpose and was clicked on and off about 150x over the Christmas season. The range is good. We stood inside and was not actually facing the outlet and it still got the signal and worked with little effort. Highly recommended!
I use a wireless mouse and keyboard, so I am nowhere near my set-up. I also have four external hard drives, which I wanted to be able to power up and down from where I normally sit (which is nowhere near the tower). So blessed be this awesome wireless remote outlet. I can turn my hard drives on and off when needed, and I don’t have to have them running needlessly in the background.
After a few weeks it still works great, and having a option of a or b circuit means down the road i can expand. if you look around i am sure you can find a use for this, buy it and you will find a million uses.
