Set of three remote controlled sockets, reduced further. Very useful set at the lowest price they have been. As good as the Tesco set. Sorry don't know how to post a picture - 1st post!

If anyone is after these, and can't find them, drop me a line, as i have 2 spare packs, and will sell for the £5, plus P+P (couple of pound max).

They are really good, for lazy people, haha! :thumbsup: :p

Hot! These are great. Plug in a multi socket extension and turn all your garden lights or Christmas lights on at once with the press of a single button. Love 'em!

Seems to vary from store to store as I got some in our local a week ago and they scanned at 7 quid.

Thinking of picking up two sets, anyone successfully using two sets together?

Worried that I might end up with everything coming on in pairs...

Thanks.
#7
Forgive my ignorance, but are these remote control sockets compatible with Logitech remotes? Or am I barking up the wrong tree?
#8
For anyone that has these are they "radio" or "infrared"? Any idea of the range if they are radio?

Finally, what's the maximum wattage?

Thanks.

#10
Thanks. Thinking of using them to power lights on the drive/ garage to be activated from inside the car, sounds like this could be just the job, and very cheap!

Albeit the listing is at £7 I think price may vary from store to store, not sure if this would be classed as a duplicate post??

I got these for £5 last time (I think). I can't be 100% sure if it was the exact same ones not having seen the box.

Good for plugs in difficult to reach locations (behind furniture) and Christmas tree lights! Great for old people. However, not so good for people that loose remotes as these are smaller than your usual TV remotes! Also, if there is a power outage you have to reset them - something my Mum couldn't remember how to do without me. It's easy though, you just press the button on the plug then press the on button on the remote for the number that you want to control it.

All of these things I have seen are RF. I wanted an IR one to use with my Harmony One but I couldn't find one. Completely understandable that they'd all use RF though - many plugs are hidden away behind furniture where IR wouldn't work. Plugs in inaccessible locations is one of the main uses of these products.

As for Wattage... the ones I got didn't say! But I run a 42" plasma, AV receiver driving 5.1 speakers, BR player etc. with no problems off one, a PC, monitor speakers on another and an electric heather on the third one.

Is this in the same room? I believe the on/off buttons for each number are a different frequency, so if you have two sets you know have two switches operating on the same frequency. The thing that will determine whether they affect each other or not is whether or not the other one is out of the range of the remote. i wouldn't imagine the range is very big at all really - I wouldn't expect it to go through walls. One way to test would be to buy one set and go to the room you want to use the other set. Try switching on/off from here and see if it works. If it does they will interfere, if not they won't.

If your after a bit more info on using these sockets, through my experience using them in anyway. You could click on the link in comment number 12 which should take you to my previously posted deal on these, where I wrote a sort of mini review in my post, when I spotted them at £7 instore just over a wk ago. Also they do work through floors, ceilings, walls and furniture etc, and multiple sockets can be assigned to any 1 of the 4 zone on/off buttons on the remote, so if purchasing more than 1 set of these you can operate all of the sockets from just the 1 remote, so you could keep the others as spares or if you wanted to I suppose you could have a remote control in different rooms around the home for convenience. For e.g buying 3 sets=9 sockets. If you chose to you could assign 5 sockets to button/zone one on the remote, 2 sockets to button/zone two and each of the remaining 2 sockets to buttons/zones 3 and 4. You can mix and match them however you like, up to a maximum of something like 64 sockets, and set-up of these is very easy to do. Hope this extra info helps some of you.

Heat and rep added for the new lower price.

H & R OP. Shelf marked still at £7, but armed with HUKD info I scanned it at the self check-out and ...£5 as you said. Now for something to do with them, lol! :-)
#20
Thanks! still £5 at my ASDA, picked one up, they're pretty good, though pitty they're not compatible with most harmony remotes with being RF =[
#21
Thanks for this just picked up two sets from my local ASDA at £5 each.

Strange that they have 4 buttons and only three sockets!

Works very well but I had hoped to combine the two sets, more so I could have two remotes controlling 3 sockets but it doesn't work like that, both sets are independant, so two sets could be used in one house without interference with each other.

I'll probably keep the second set as a spare set, and it gives me the option to have 4 if required (only have 3 lamps to operate at the moment) Will also be handy if I lose the remote!

So the sockets from either set can be programmed to either remote but can't be programmed to two remotes at once.

They use a bit of a strange battery (23A 12v) in the remote but there are plenty on ebay at cheap enough prices.

Only negative point I can see is that you have to reprogram them to the remote if you have a power cut or if you unplug them, it isn't a major hassle just press and hold the button on the remote for 2 seconds, but you have to turn off the other ones else it will program all of them to one button, then you turn the next one on and program that etc.

Range is excellent,

Only perfect thing for me would be a wall mounted holder to drop the remote in by the door, can anyone think of something which would work for that!?

My nephew bought 4 for me few months ago for £5 each from Asda. The one got from Asda is now giving me a trouble to switch off my TV in same room. If you can wait? Then Lidl have them on offer for around £10 to £15 and better quality with dimmer. 1 set I am using which I bought 1 set of 4 for £10, 3 + 1 dimmable around 3 years ago, it is still working without giving any trouble and you can even control them from long distance, I can control them from my sitting room to second floor right in the back around 40 feet’s away.
