A combination of smart sockets and remote control enables you to cut power to any appliance in standby mode. Control electrical appliances in your home or office at the simple touch of a button.

Next cheapest are all around £24. This is a great price for this kit, it even has the ability to be controlled over the internet with some added hardware.

They do a great wall mounted switch (£9.99) which also controls the remote sockets which is a great idea if you keep loosing the remote. http://www.maplin.co.uk/Module.aspx?ModuleNo=217579

This is a really great piece of kit, added heat :)

Not bad, the Domia Lite stuff is essentially old X10 stuff with a new face. Testament to that fact is that its STILL got the legacy dials.

I personally prefer the HOMEEASY stuff from B&Q even though its a little more expensive (£20 for 3 sockets + mini remote) it seems to be a tad more reliable in our house as we have thick walls with a high iron content bricks.

Great for hard to reach sockets though :)
Added some heat.

tried to get this stuff before from maplin - NEVER seems to be in stock in store....

PLEASE NOTE: Bye Bye Standby is a different protocol to X10 and therefore is not compatible.

£9.99 at Lidl, if they still have stock

Good for home automation, but this is just a wireless standby button :roll:. Much better to switch stuff off properly.
#9
Great idea for switching things off stndby overnight, especialy if the plugs are in 'hard to get to places' Switching off overnight, does not save a great deal of money, but enviromentaly it is something we can all do to help? Bargain price. Thanks poster. :thumbsup:

I'm not sure about this. This device will be on standby all the time awaiting remote signals.

lol.. it sure is, with a LED as well...

I use them for my lamps, to switch on and off, rather than going to each one.

I purchased for the convienence, nothing to do with cost or energy savings.

Gadget they are.
#13
Comet stock these for £19.99 at larger stores I've found - reserve online to be sure.

We just bought a set for hard to reach behind the TV items. The LED power is a lot less that the standby light as far as I know - I also wondered!!

:-)

I've been using these things for a good while now and have 3 kits around the house. In my living room I have a gangway plugged into one of these, so I'm able to turn off all that kit with one button (my plugs aren't that accessible so thats another bonus). If you use a gangway, make sure you don't exceed 4Amps/1000W in total! I also have other lamps dotted around the place which are all 'grouped' so I can turn them all on and off at once (without affecting the TV stuff). Finally, it might be worth mentioning that you can get a dimmer module too, which you can operate from the same remote control. Again, I have this and it works a treat. I wanted remote controls to save money + be convenient; I'm glad I hung out until this stuff came along as its brilliant. No I don't work for Maplin (much of their stuff is very expensive IMHO) but this kit is fabulous and this price is the cheapest I've seen. Gutted, because I bought mine for £20 :)

good deal, picked another one up from bristol store last week, they had about 20 in stock. Something else to consider is the Intelliplug, which is great for use with computer, turn off PC, and printer, monitors, speakers all go off. Also £15 which isn't a bad price, cheaper than most places online when you include p&p.

Also wheres the link to the online version?
#16
I'm interested in the control via the internet, but could not find this on Maplin...can you help?

The devise will be in standy yes but they have a relay in them that cuts the power. The advantage is there is no longer any power going to the devices that do sit in standby and so will save you some electricity (How much is debatable) Obviously the plug will be drawing some power but im sure its a lot less than my tv, xbox, ps3 and amplifier.

And that was posted in September, as Lidl deals are just for a limited time have you checked its still available?

I have remote control sockets from Lidl which are similar to these except that they also include a 4th socket with dimmer control. I have measured the power consumption whilst the socket is on standby using a plugin power meter and they register zero Watts. They must use some power but I guess that it's less than 1 Watt which is the minimum the power meter will register. Incidentally the socket with the dimmer is different, that registers 9 Watts on standby.

Like I said a few posts higher up, if they still have stock.
My local Lidl have had these in several times throughout the year (2007).

Is this (the Domia Lite stuff) really X10?

I need to add a few units to my existing X10 setup and these seem good quality (and fairly cheap) :-D. Hot deal.

Edit: Ok, it looks like the Domia Lite system is not compatible with standard X10 stuff :(. Info seems vague but quite a few suppliers explicitly state it will not work with X10.
#24
I am pretty sure that Domia and that switch won't work with ByeByeStandby as protocols tend to differ. I found that even protocols (and possibly frequencies) from different manufacturers are different, so in some cases you can't use receiver made by one manufacturer will work with commander from another.
Unless it is X10 of course. :)

I've got this Bye Bye Standby kit and the wall switch and they work together fine. I don't think any of this range is X10 though.
#26
Sorry didn't realise that this kit also belongs to Domia Lite range.
#27
BBSB is the same (exactly the same) protocol as Domia Lite (same company), not X10 (as used by Domia 10). X10 uses both RF and powerline transmission, BBSB/DL only RF and the 2 types of RF aren't compatible. You can use the 2 in the same house - they don't interfere with one another. The BBSB/DL protocol has less addressable devices than X10.

I'm running BBSB/DL and X10 together at the mo. Experiences with the BBSB/DL online controller are so far not very impressive.
#28
Voted HOT.

I have 2 sets of these and paid £19.99 each from currys. :x

Great invention at a very good price :thumbsup:

Watch out for cheap imitations, their not worth wasting your money on.
#29
yeah, sorry, Domia Lite isn't X10, I'm getting confused again :S
#30
This set really is good value for money; I had tried some of cheaper versions but they won't nearly as versatile and I worried that some of them were actually a fire risk. You get what you pay for!
#31
Got mine today and they are great. Ordered another set. Thanks
#32
I bought one set and they are great looked today as my set arrived yestarday they have now gone up to £27.99 an extra £13, so i wont be buying another set as its nearly double the price :( good deal while it lasted
