Best Beal Ever

Unit said used refurbished. But when I got it there was not a scratch or Ding it was perfect. It was shipped super fast it works perfect I love it I might even buy another one. When I say one I mean the total product. It came with three outlets switches and one remote it’s a beautiful product I just can’t tell you buy it if you can.

I use these devices to “unplug” my home theater projector when it is not in use. I can go one to two weeks without watching my home theater projector, and because the retro-fit installed electrical outlet is on the ceiling, I wanted a method to completely disconnect the projector from the house current for surge protection. While I have a surge protector between this outlet and the projector, there is no better surge protection than unplugging the electronic device entirely- which this does! When there are lightening storms and I am at work or away on a weekend, I don’t have to worry if my projector is safe from a lightening strike with this. Do not hesitate to buy it.

Hurricane Sandy blew threw with some power surges, but my equipment (home theater projector, amplifier) was safe- safer than anything plugged into an outlet- thanks to these devices. I have read other reviews that their devices failed; my are working great. They are large and consume a single gang outlet giving you only one working outlet, but you can use a short multi-outlet extention cord if need be. The large size of this device is apparently the price paid for the confidence of not risking your equipment.

The remote is nice and compact, but the actual switches themselves are very bulky and can take up a lot of space. They sometimes end up covering up an extra outlets because of how bulky they are, and on power strips they can even take up three outlets all together.

Now they don’t have to stumble in the dark to walk across the living room to turn on a lamp, they just reach for the remote thats place near the entrance when they first walk in. These were a pleasant surprise item from Eforcity. I wouldn’t plug in large appliances(A/C) with this as they are meant for lamps and such. Another good use was xmas lights inside the apt.

It works exactly the way I need it to, and there hasn’t been any part of it that has made me regret buying it. I’ve had it for over a year now, and I haven’t even had to change the battery in the remote yet, and I use this thing every day over and over again. Now if you are trying to get something professional, than this probably isn’t the way to go. I use it in my bedroom. Only for the reason that the remote is made of cheap plastic, but the plastic is sturdy, and while your using it, you don’t notice anything about it feeling cheap. Overall, this is a great product, I would buy it 100 times, and it just makes life easier.

ch of the units for the lamps in her room allowing her to push a button on the remote to turn lights on and off. The product works great, just plug it in and go. She has been using it for a few months now and it is still working great. My mother-in-law thinks it’s great.

Great Purchase So Far, But Why not Sell Extra Remotes?

i have 2 of them connected to the lamps in our bedroom. one thing i would change and i wish was different is that each unit only has 3 “memories”. i was able to program each remote to turn each light on individually, but was only able to program one remote for “both on both off” on one channel. also, the “owners manual” leaves a little to be desired.

I bought a second set and it worked great exactly as advertised also. I did not give them 5 stars because the instructions left some information out which you need to figure out by yourself.

It turns out that when you reprogram the channel you must first clear all the channels or else you will have both programmed channels working off of the remote with the same outlet.So clear it first if you want one button working one outlet.

I also discovered that the remotes (mine anyhow) are not interchangeable with the outlets, regardless of the button number,unless you program the outlet with that specific remote. So you have a lot of flexibility here. These are all good features. I just think the instructions could be more thorough. Other than this the instructions are good.

This a great product especially during the Christmas Season. I can stand at one corner of my downstairs and click on the tree, the lights on the mantle, the lights on the inside wreath in my breakfast room amd the electric candles in the windows.

I bought the 5 outlets + 2 Remotes version because I would use them in different rooms & figured I’d want 2 remotes. So far they are great for the lights I have them hooked up to. Very reliable, very consistent operation.

I put one outside to control the decorative lights on my balcony and I love that I no longer have to step into the frigid cold to activate them. They are also quite useful for controlling appliances that are otherwise normally hard to plug and unplug.

Then plug in the lamp to the remove control outlet. Finally to program the handheld remote to the remote control outlet, press the side button on the remote control outlet until the red light on it starts blinking. Then press and hold the ON button the handheld remote until the lamp turn on. Continue programming the next lamp and use the next available position on the handheld remote control.

One can program both handheld remotes to turn on/off the same lamp. So one can have as many remotes controlling the same lamp.

The handheld remote signal range is excellent and works flawlessly. Press the ON button and immediately the light turns on.

Works as Described, What’s Not to Like

I bought two sets because I knew I would need more than two remotes. I didn’t think I’d need 10 outlets. The hot water recirculation pump has a built-in timer, but the timer means it’s often running when we don’t need hot water and not running when we do need it. A remote motion-detector switch wouldn’t have been ideal because often we are in the bathrooms but don’t need hot water. Problem solved with the remote switches.

I’m now using the extra switches to control pretty much everything else in the house that doesn’t need to be on all the time (primarily AV equipment). So far I’ve found uses for 9 of the 10 outlets. With one remote next to the garage door opener it’s easy to make sure everything is switched off when we leave and then to turn on things we want on when we come home. With additional remotes next to our bed and in the bathrooms it’s pretty convenient. I’m not sure we’ll ever save enough electricity and gas (water heater) to justify the expense (plus replacement batteries for the remotes), but I feel better knowing that all those energy wasters are shut off when we don’t need them on.

So far I’m impressed. The range seems excellent and the on/off function seems rock solid. I was a little skeptical that they would work that well, but they’ve exceeded my expectations. Probably the best functioning remote devices I’ve ever had. I’ve only had them a week, but they seem very well built.

I’m giving them 4 stars only because they don’t sell the remotes by themselves. Otherwise I’d give them 5 stars. On the company’s own web site they list the remotes by themselves for a ridiculously high price that makes no sense. Based on the pricing of the packs the individual remotes should sell for less than $10 each. At that price I would probably buy a couple more remotes just to have them in more convenient places in the house.

Program the outlet and the remote control is very easy the only thing that is two remote working as one. You can’t not assign two outlet in two different room with same number in two different remote because when you press any remote the two outlet will turn off/on the same time. Right now just have to wait and see how long it last

The range for the remotes is outstanding and flawless to this point. I would definitely recommend this product to any household for making the process of turning lights on and off a simple and effortless push of a button.
