Remote Controls for My Home Lights

I think these are a great deal for anyone who only wants to control a couple of outlets and avoid the expense of setting up a true X-10 system. I like that there are buttons on the units themselves that can also turn the lights on and off. Since I have one next to my bed for lamp, I can just reach over and turn it off without having to have the remote next to me.

The only con is that the outlets are bulky and make it hard to plug in something in the other outlet of a two-port receptacle. Some might also find the red indicator LEDs annoying. Overall, a good buy and recommended.

I can turn on the lights in the driveway from inside my car. I can turn on the Xmas lights on my porch from my car in the street. My fiance will never have to worry about walking into a dark house too.

I had trouble because I had to turn the lights out before I got in bed and if I needed a light would have to get out of bed to turn the light on. Was looking at other items and found these. They were very reasonably priced and had good reviews. I chose the packet with 2 remotes because I can then use them in 2 different rooms and have a remote in each room. This way I didn’t have to carry one on me all the time. When laying on the couch I use a remote to turn on a nearby lamp and in the bedroom to turn a lamp on from the bed. So, when I knock my cane over or need a light, I don’t have to get up in the dark. I can use the remote to turn on the lamps in the other room with no problem. Haven’t decided what I am going to use the 3rd socket outlet on yet, but have time. Am very happy with this product and would recommend it to others.

They work flawlessly. I was concerned that having two devices in close proximity would interfere with each other, but they don’t. Highly recommended!

It works well, from anywhere in my apartment. I am quite pleased with how well it works. One note is that it is larger than I thought it would be – if you want to put this into a power strip, for example, be forewarned that this will only be useful sticking off the end. It’s bigger than the power adapter for my stereo.

Attached the remote to the wall over the light switch. Works great and everyone says they like the ambience in my office.

You have the wall-piece that plugs in. It has a light on it indicating that it has power and a button to turn it on and off manually right on the socket. The remote also turns the socket on and off (which is the whole purpose behind it). There is an on/off light on the socket that indicates its status. There is an audible “click” when it is turned on or off. The battery included is a nice touch as many items these days don’t include batteries making it a pain for the first-time setup. As a basic, functional item with a decent price it is pretty good.
