We have a large open unfinished potion of our basement that is used for storage, workspace and music area. It is very dark and lighted by hang down shop lights that plug in. The lighting works well but it is treacherous walking through the dark trying to find the pull string to turn them on unless we left one on constantly which was a waste of money and not at all green. We were contemplating hiring an electrician to rewire the lighting so we could have a switch by the door when we found this wireless set. MUCH cheaper than an electrician and we can turn each light on individually instead of all on at once. This wireless remote is a money saver for us all the way around. It even works from the other room so we can turn on a light before we open the door. It was easy to install and no more walking blind in the dark. I guess the instructions are good but you could easily figure it out without them. We absolutely could not be happier!
The remote and outlets work great and are super easy to program. I used them in a room that requires a lot of light and I have them setup so that 1 button turns them on or off but I can also shed individual lights by using the other programmed from the factory buttons. The remote control outlets sturdy and well built.
I LOVE this product so much that I had to tell you! I originally bought the first set for my newborn daughter’s room because the cute lamp that she had as part of her room decor did not have a switch. If I wanted to use it I had to plug it in, and when I was done, I had to unplug it. With a newborn who needed a diaper change in the middle of the night, this was never going to happen. This product was EXACTLY what I needed. One click and her lamp switches on – no fuss! I have since then installed one in just about every room. I also have one in my son’s room for his nightlight so it doesn’t stay on all the time. This is really convenient so that when I am nice and cozy in my bed, I can simply turn off the lamp from my room. I just ordered a second set for my in-laws for their Christmas tree. They think it is the most amazing gadget ever!
But all aspects of the initial transaction exceeded my expectations. The order was promptly filled. The price was as good or better than that asked for competing units. The outlets and remotes were very easy to set up and so far have worked flawlessly. The instruction material was clear and written with a nice tone of customer service consciousness. The remote units even came with initial batteries and one replacement battery for each. Wouldn’t it be nice if more firms showed thoughtful consideration of the customer like this!
