I was living in an apartment without ceiling lights and this let me mimic the ease of “flicking a switch” by vel-cro-ing the remote to the wall and hooking it up to my floor lamsp all around my room. No need to go to each one to turn them all on, or to bend down to find the button on each lamp. I LOVE these.
Some of my lamps are behind a big piece of furniture which is hard to move in order to turn them on. This one does it with just a click and I can do it from the other side of the room. It’s really nice when I get home in the dark…I just take this little remote control and turn on all my lights in seconds.
Had purchased one during the holidays for “remoting” the Christmas tree, Living Room and Dining Room window lights. Just purchsed this second one for use with several lamps in my den. Great idea and great buy!
You can switch electic devices on and off from a good distance and it seems to work through walls. A steal at around $21.00. Just buy it. I am sure you will find a good use for it, even if you just hook it up to your Christmas tree once a year. I use mine for a 3 channel DJ light control in my party room. No one can tell who’s running the light show when I have the remote in my pocket.
I had to give it 3 stars because chanel number 1 was defective … would not work … otherwise a good product and good deal … just ordered a replacement … as this one’s going back
Been testing my replacment for a while … wonderful little outlets … really great to turn on and off things when not near them … these replacements had a yellow stanley badge on them instead of the red they defective one came with. they are rated to 625watts and make a clicking noise when they are turned on and off (i don’t mind as it lets me know it’s receiving the signal) new rating will be a 4 1/2 … i would order another set but they are out of stock at the moment.
These are a replacement set, since some of those have stopped working. (different brand-same concept) These work great. I have had this set for several months now. I have even given them as a gift to my parents. They come in very handy, especially for things that are difficult to turn on and off, like those curio cabinets or china cabinets that have switches inside the cabinet that are difficult to reach, or you have one, two, or three buttons to have to turn on and off for one piece of furniture. I use mine all over the house. I have a set in my bedroom to control a lamp on the dresser, one on the night stand, and the other to control the lamp I have in the far corner of the room. I have the remote mounted to my headboard with double sided mounting tape, so I don’t have to get out of bed to turn lights off. I have a set in my living room that controls two different lamps on tables at different ends of the room, and one that controls a lighted book case. It just makes life easier to push a button on one devise to control lights all over the room or house, instead of running all over the house turning lights on or off. You can use them on anything, like radios, lamps, up lighting, etc. I highly recommend the Stanley 31164 Indoor Wireless Remote Control with Single Transmitter to anyone and everyone.
