Converts electrical appliances to remote control on/off operation
Turns appliances on and off at the click of a button
Great for those hard to reach sockets
Simple and easy to use - no installation required - ''Plug ''n'' Play'' operation
Use to switch off appliances on standby
Remotely control up to 5 separate mains powered devices
30m range in open spaces
Even works through ceilings and walls!
Maximum switching capacity 3120W

Any appliance with a plug socket can be powered remotely up to a distance of 30 metres. It uses Radio Frequency so the remote does not need to be pointed at the socket and can work through walls.

Each RF socket has 4 channels than can be set from the switch at the back.
For example, if you had 5 lamps plugged into the RF sockets on different channels/codes you could turn them on and off individually or if set on the same channel/code you could turn them all on and off at the same time.

To operate, set the dial on the reverse of the product to the channel required and fit the small battery to the transmitter. Plug the socket in to the required wall outlet and it''s ready to use.

can get a set of 3 from Asda for a fiver bud so not such a good deal
#2
three for a fiver in asda, been that price for ages now
#3
As above comments, i bought two packs.
#4
The BIG difference with these compared to the cheaper ones is that they are hard coded with a switch, so should you have a power cut they do not need resetting.

For most people this might not matter but if placed in hard to reach places or for the elderly or infirm these are a much better option.
#5
asda ones still working fine with no intervention despite several power cuts
#6
I've had three sets from asda - dont work the best to be fair. not slick enough.

I think you can safely ignore this comment as being totally untrue.
But it is still not a very good price.


With respect, it is true for most remote mains sockets that are not single channel or are not hard coded. I would however accept that removing power for a relatively short duration can be tolerated.

This advice also applies to devices like the Lime energy saver.

The asda ones suck. Definitely didn't reset when we had a powercut. These seem more useful.
