Hope this hasn't already been posted;

Lidl are selling 4x remote plug sockets for £12.99 from Thursday 9th October

I bought these last time around and they are excellent, and unlike most other sets you get 4 plugs, not 3 and one is dimmable.

are they line of sight (Infra-red) or will they work through objects like bookcases?
#2
They are not infra-red so will work through walls etc, not much use otherwise. They work up to 40 metres.

you say that but there's still people out there flogging the IR one's which is why I thought I'd check. Cheers.

Perfect for Christmas tree fairy lights ... thanks! :)

I bought some of these last year and they do what they say on the tin - I'm very happy with them :-)
#6
Who's selling the IR ones as I would prefer these, then I can work it through my 1 for all, instead of another remote control.
#7
This seems a good deal from Lidl, heat added :-) xx

My brother bought these a year or two ago when they were £10, the ones he got were faulty - a wire missing on the remote PCB, which he fixed himself as they'd sold out. The remote is a tad large compared to some.

These RF ones are much better, you can switch stuff off or on anywhere in the house.

Based on the appliances I could not easily get to the sockets on and thus where always in “standby” before I started using these I estimated savings at around £50 - £60 a year if they are used religiously in my scenario.

So well worth doing.

BTW "standby" power usage for these is negligible; it hardly even registers on a power usage meter...
#12
Great for garden lights as you can put the remote sockets in your shed...if you have power there!
You can then impress everyone f(or about 10 seconds) that you can light up the garden from inside!

1001 uses arround the house.

I have some tesco ones that i use for turning off my lamp and computer monitor when i'm in bed :D

does anyone know if i will be able to use both sets alongside each other, or will the frequencies clash?

They send a coded signal, so it doesn't matter if they use the same frequency as you are unlikely to press buttons on both controls at the same time. You can also get the remote to randomly select a different set of codes although I can't remember how :thinking:.

Anyway they didn't interfere with my "Home Easy" set - they also couldn't be programmed to work with the HE's remote.
#16
I bought 2 sets last time they where on offer. Great piece of kit, gonna pick up some more. You can program a number of sockets to one button (ie lamps to button 1, TV/DVD to button 2 etc). Heat and Rep.

They where only £10 when i get these about 12 months ago
#17
Thanks , I have been planning to buy one of these for a short while. So I got a relative to pick up two of these for me, as I had to be at work.

I got two sets they had loads left tonight when I called in again. Newport road Midlesbrough.

I got a set in Leeds, just of the Hunslet Rd. They're really good! The dimmer one didn't work very with my lamp though, it just kept flickering instead of turning off, so i had to switch it for a normal on/off one, which was slightly annoying but never mind...

If you are using the batteries that came with the remote change it for a new one as the one I got was about dead. ;-)

Do these have a timer on them?? I put mine on, but sometimes it can stay on all the time, sometimes only a few minutes, and sometimes a few hours.. Are they supposed to be just on and off? Maybe I have a faulty set? Any feedback would be great thanks.
