I Reccomend to Keep One In Your Vehicle for Coming and Going So Your Able to Control the Lighiting

They work great! I previously purchased a remote control outlet from Lowes for the same price and it came with only one switch. This is a better deal.

I spent over $200 on other brands that didn`t work. It works at a great distance. It uses a 9v and that`s the reason I only gave it four stars and it it`s so large it covers both outlets. It should only use two AA batteries. 9vs are expensive. The prongs are strong that hold in the batteries. Mine came with 2 remotes that work independently. The dude that dropped his is blaming the company for his error. The other review complained about the metal clips. The clips are strong and do the job. I bought a multi plug outlet and snapped it in and then plugged the remote in sideways. That left room for another outlet. It works through walls also. This is a quality product and I don`t believe the negative reviews. There`s enough positive reviews to back it up. Keeping the product and getting a refund is a multi billion dollar scam. I dropped mine on a tile floor and it still worked. Had to pop the cover back on. update-had this for awhile and it still works good. The cover is looser on one remote than I like so just used a piece of tape. It is the best I have ever found.

This is not an issue with this set, one press of the remote and the module turns on / off my devises, good range, easy to use, better current rating, 10 amp / 1200 watts verses my other set which was 5 amp / 600 watts. Two remotes add convience, if I forget to turn off a light, she can turn it off with her own remote.

I am using this in a home automation project so I needed an on command AND an off command. The buttons on this remote are made to look like they are on and off, but they are only one button. This means it only sends one signal. The outlet just switches state when it receives a signal.

I suffer from hot flashes, so I have a few of these throughout the house with fans plugged in. Instant on and instant off when the flash is over. Amazing!! You can actually put things in hard to get to places and use these remote outlets to turn them on and off! WONDERFUL! Friends and family have purchased after visiting and seeing them!

I bought their 3 pack system, as well as this 5 pack system, no comparison! The three pack, never ever worked unless the remote was within 3 feet of the wall socket, so I gave up on it (I only bought it because the 3 pack had smaller receivers that wouldn’t block the second wall outlet socket connection), and installed the 5 pack system, worke like a charm from day 1 and still works the same after much usage. If you want a more usable remote control light system, then buy the 5 pack, if you want to struggle with your installation, buy the 3 pack. That would be my advice to anyone thinking about using the Elekcity remote control system!

Better Than Previous Remotes

Usually, my techie gadgets get an eye roll from my spouse, but this one has gotten me a two thumbs up! She loves to be able to turn all of the accents off at night without going to each one and switching them.

Good for use with only one appliance but if you want to use it to work additional appliances you should order the 3 or 5 pack ones. Works as described. Attached the remote to the wall over the light switch. Works great and everyone says they like the ambience in my office.

I don’t understand the logic to have 1 unit switched by a button on top of the other and the other 2 side by side (see remote). This is fixed with the 5 units version.

Knocked off one star for the on/off lettering starting to come off within 3 weeks and despite the new “smaller” shape only the smallest of plugs will fit in the socket below, because the round bottom shape partially blocks the outlet below. Someone was more interested in appearance than function. Would buy again but suggest the issue a re rectified.

Only issue I have with it is the size of each outlet switch. It blocks off half the type of adapters you can use for the other outlet. It works even if you control the units from the other room!

Only issue I found is the size, they still make this prodcuts very bulky! I dont care but I could be a 5stars if the size was more on the small size.

I use them for all of my christmas lights, garlands, etc around the house that are plugged in. Works great, no complaints. Responsive. Exactly what I was looking for. (suggest getting as many plugs as possible, you’ll end up using more than you think!)

However, it is simple and works well. 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.

We moved into a house that was built with no overhead lighting. We’re out in the woods, so when it gets dark – it’s really dark! These have been a godsend to us. I have a few of these and I also have the other style that has 3 separate plug units with one remote. Perfect for my living room (3 lamps). the remote sits on a small end table just inside the room. We used to trip and fall trying to get to lights, etc. not anymore!

We also use this for Indoor holiday lighting. I have my tree & foyer displays set up on one remote. perfect.

Bonus: For people who wake up during the night (hot flashes, night sweats, etc.), try putting a fan in your room and use one of these… if you wake up, push the button and blast air on you for a minute or two, then push the off switch – without ever getting out of bed! You can go right back to sleep! Wonderful product!

Very Handy to Use with Power Switches That Are Inconveniently Placed

I tried a G/E model of wireless light switch that I found at Target prior to getting this. That one would turn on/off at random from what I can only assume was radio frequencies either coming from other apartments or from garage door openers near me. The “rotating security code” claim was nothing but a lie.

However, I have had ZERO issues with the model. It works every time I press the button, never turns on/off from outside interference, and has performed flawlessly. I only knock it down one star due to there being a different image on the product page than what I bought. For reference, mine looks like the one that has a squarish shaped outlet with 2 buttons on it and a boxy remote control with only one button. If they were more coherent in their product info I would absolutely give it 5 stars.

Super easy to use. The remote signal works through walls and at angels. I love it and am relly glad i bought this. The switch is hard to reach, so it seemed perfect. It works well, but occasionally loses connectivity to the power under the sink and has to be switched on and off. The remote control is sturdy and not cheap or flimsy. It’s worth every penny and I would buy it again and again.

I wish the unit had a plug in the side instead of the front; if you have this behind furniture with a standard plug, the piece sticks pretty far out from the wall. The depth of the head is 1.5″, so a low profile extension cord solves that issue. Overall we’re very satisfied!

You know how you wake up at night and just need a cool blast of air? Well, in the old days (last week), you had to sit up, fumble for the fan knob (they keep moving it!), turn it on, lie back down, get cool, get cold, get freezing, sit up, fumble, turn it off, lie back down, rinse, repeat, right? With this, you put the little remote (about the size of a pack of gum) under the pillow or on the nightstand and a light touch brings blessed coolth. Another tap makes it go away again. It also works for whatever other electric-y things that can be plugged in. I had a plan to surreptitiously put this on my neighbor’s living room lamp (very close proximity) and randomly turn the lights on and off. But no, wiser heads prevailed.

Works Great, Should Have Bought More And Will!!

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.

Now I can turn my fan off and on from my recliner. :)

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.

Works Great! Simple and Easy!

Plug it in and it works. Works through several walls and from a distance of 50 ft. 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 so well I bought another one for a bedroom lamp, so much easier to reach over and press the button than looking for the turn switch. I would recommend this for anyone with a difficult switch, or perhaps one in a hard to find spot, also it anyone has any issues with their hands such as arthritis.

I wanted to be able to turn it off from the office when I returned. It works like a charm. For some strange reason I turn off the lamp and then pull it out of the light socket at night. It’s next to my bedroom door. You do not have to disconnect it because I have used it both ways and it works great!!!

Note that you have to slide off the cover of the remote to access the battery. Then you have to take the plastic off the battery and replace it in the unit. Then it works!

Today it dropped from my hand, a whopping 3 ft to the top of my socked foot, and no longer works at all. I haven’t yet attempted to contact the company for a replacement, but if they don’t remedy the issue swiftly, this will be the last I deal with them.

Have been using it for a couple of months now. Even bought another for another application. I haven’t had the issue of interference with other signals, but I use this in a house where other sources are probably not near. Instantly turns on. I have it hooked up to a power strip running my Xbox, Apple TV, BluRay, and TV so when I’m finished watching I can simply push the button on the remote and all of my devices lose power. This saves on standby power by preventing the devices from drawing electricity that isn’t really necessary. Of course you want to make sure that all of your devices are already turned off before cutting the power to them! I measured the electrical draw and my setup was using 13 watts of electricity at standby and this device uses only 1 watt. Pretty awesome!

Comes with battery in the pack. The only issue (though not a big one) is that the plug is a bit big in size. So if you plug it in, you cannot use the adjacent wall sockets. But not a big deal though.

I use it to control my hot water circulation pump, on in the morning, off mid morning then on again in the early evening and off after dinner. All without leaving my living room! Works great!

Works as Promised

I use them for all of my christmas lights, garlands, etc around the house that are plugged in. Works great, no complaints. Responsive. Exactly what I was looking for. (suggest getting as many plugs as possible, you’ll end up using more than you think!)

Works even if you control the units from the other room! Only issue I found is the size, they still make this prodcuts very bulky! I dont care but I could be a 5stars if the size was more on the small size.

Ever since Time Warner Cable bought out Insight Communications (near Louisville, KY), I have had my internet connection drop out at least once per day. I have my cable modem plugged into one of these remote power outlet switches so that when my internet connection drops out, I don’t need to go to the basement to powercycle my modem.

I have recessed sockets in my floor so I had to get an extension to plug this into, but once I did it works great. Love the remote – makes it convenient for my living room light and bedroom light that have hard to reach switchs – I just use the remote and they work great.

For some reason our home has very few wall switches and installed lighting. We must use lamps to light our home. It’s pain to go around turning each light off individually (one room has 6 lamps). These make it simple and are a new necessity in our home.I love being able top walk in the front door or any room and use a switch to turn on a light instead of stumbling through the dark to the lamp.

Easy setup, just hold the learning button on the side and choose your button on either remote. Was planning on using at two different locations, but now I think I’ll buy another set. Very convenient.

My daughter has one of those elevated beds so we wanted to have an easy way for her to turn her lamp on/off when she’s up in the bed. This is perfect and the price was right.

Programming is easy, you can have them each on their own channel, or put them two or three on the same channel. I do have a little problem with the second channel sometimes turning on the third channel too, not turning it off, just on. One of the remotes I received is a five channel remote, not sure why I got that, but at least it works. I feel sorry for whoever needed five channels and only got three. Over all, I am very pleased with my purchase, they make life just a little easier!
