It works great. Recommended to everyone who is handicapped and needs help turning on lights. Push a button on the remote control to turn the light on and/or off. It works. very happy. It worked but there was a Prop 65 warning on the packaging that it was made with toxic materials known to cause cancer and birth defects, and that you should “wash your hands after using it”!! (Probably made in China!) That went straight back! Then I ordered this product and I couldn’t be happier.
It comes packaged in a very nice manufacturers box and looks and feels like a very high quality item. The remote works with a 9V battery, included, which is really nice as 9V’s last forever. The battery is in the remote but is wrapped in plastic, so open the cover (slide the lower portion downward to reveal the battery) to unwrap and install it.
In addition to controlling the off/on by the remote, there are off/on switches on the AC adapter. I guess this could come in handy if the remote’s battery died and you didn’t have a spare on hand, or if the remote was misplaced temporarily.
The AC adapter does take up a lot of space but I have a power strip plugged into the wall, and the AC adapter plugged into the power strip, so that wasn’t an issue for me.
Now I can turn my fan off and on from my recliner and wouldn’t be happier. Also, I emailed it before my purchase with a question and they answered immediately and were very nice. I would buy from the company again in a second.

The only real problem is that the range of the remote is a bit hit-&-miss… particularly with the battery supplied. By the way, the battery isnt your standard AA or AAA either, its an A23 which may or may not be difficult to find in your area. Also the plug-in bits just a -little- too wide to go in side-by-side on most power strips.
My room lamp is all the way on the other side of the room. This product helps especially when reading at night and tucked in bed. At this point, I really do not feel like moving or walking all the way over on the other side of the room to turn off the lamp. Wonderful – and I do not feel lazy
You take them out of the package, put the battery in the remote and connect one or both of the wall sockets. One independent button to turn each one on, and one separate button to turn each one off. Has helped me a lot with a raspberry pi that required to be disconnected and connected back to switch on. Served its purpose as it was expected. Haven’t prove the range but in the same room, it works like a charm.
