My husband died 2 yrs ago and recently I needed a new remote switch for a hanging lamp. I went to radio shack and found they have discontinued the one they sold . I went to Amazon , found this one, and it is great. It is easy to use and you can have three items connected to it wirelessly. I love it.
It has been an excellent product. I have had this for over 3 years now. This is far more useful than I expected. I control three separate items with this switch. I wholeheartedly recommend this to everyone.
My wife has difficulty getting around, bending down to turn on the power strips for electrical items plugged in. Now she can turn on lights and the other items with the remote control. Found the instruction manual too small to read so went to the WEB site and downloaded the PDF file, it explains set-up even better than the one that came with the devices. Go to [...] and click customer support.
I also use one to control a light when I’m watching movies. The remote works great but the buttons are kind of squishy, no clicks. The only problem I have is that they have no memory in a power outage. They default to OFF when when the power is restored. Signal strength has never been an issue for me in the 12 to 15 foot range. Haven’t tried it further though. There is an audible click when they are switched. They work perfectly for my situation, just need to turn everything back on when power goes out.
There’s not much to say about the product because it just works perfectly. The biggest advantage is that it really turns your connected device on and off with ONE click only! Believe me, I had other versions of this type of remote outlets before and they were bad! You basically always had to be in line of sight with the outlet transmitter or it wouldn’t work, or you had to hit the button plenty of times. Perfect device, 5 points
It made appliances easy to turn on and off remotely. It also kept them off even when children tried to play with it. It’s a sleeper saftey valve. Saved many acciedents from happening.
They work flawlessly, even from behind the walls. Outlet and the remote can be totally hidden from each other and still it will operate perfectly. 5 stars from me.
I did not like the keychain option (I’m not putting that thing on my keys, come on!) by removing the connecting ring. I also didn’t like the belt clip that was attached with two small screws, also easily removed. The outlet unit has a distinct sound when the remote switches the unit on, but the only one that doesn’t care for this sound is my dog, she gives the outlet a good stare down.
