whats good is each remote can control up to 4 sockets.

I have these at home they are fantastic.

You can actually have more than one plug to work on each of the 4 switches. For example one of my on/off switches controls all my light in the lounge. It leaves the other three switches for my PS3, Bluray & digital photoframe!!

Heat added!!! X)

:p

Great deal - I saw this instore last week, but there were only 2 left on the shelf so assumed it must be the end of the offer (hence did not post). Ideal if you have plug sockets that are not easily accessible. Hot.

i wouldve posted it last week if i'd been at work! its on til the 24th. its on our orderpads so & only comes in cases of 3 (with only 2 cases fitting on the shelf!) so if theres not enough you could ask them to order some for you. i know i had to do a bigger order today after no-one had ordered any last week!

we do a 3 pack (though with only 1 remote) for £4.99 as a normal line which was a good deal anyways.

TBH i was expecting the signage to be wrong & it to be 2for £3 not 3 for £3 as its to good a deal! :)

yep these sockets are really good. Theyre similer to the Asda sockets.Hand R

What exactly does "reset everything" mean?
If you mean the appliances you already had on just need to be turned back on again afterwards then I would think that's a minor inconvenience. But if things just come on that were previously off that could be bad.

I took it to mean you have to re-program the sockets and controller/s?

so did i. it doesnt seem such a hardship to do this, especially as its only a few pound.

i'll be taking one back though as somone has robbed the remote & battery from it! will then see if it gets reduced & may buy it again as an extra socket! :)
#12
Great deal, these are great. We use it to turn off a lamp on the other side of the bedroom without getting out of bed :-) Great if you have a newborn for those mid-night nappy changes.

How do you configure it for lights at home. I mean are these lights that are plugged into one of these switches or the ones already builtin to the wall.
#14
I've got the Asda ones, to control lamps in the conservatory (lights have to be plugged into mains scokets), they used to be on seperate buttons, but after the 10th powercut and me getting bored of crawling around to reprogram them, they're all on one button now as you can just hold a button after a powercut and they'll all assign them selves to that button.

Would be better if they remembered but they do the job

One thing I could do with help with though is..... I need a wall mounted holder for the remote and can't find one anywhere! Can anyone think of something which would do the job? I've searched to no avail!

nbuufix, velcro perhaps?

Oh, that does sound very annoying then.
The ones I have seen before had a multi-way switch on the back of each socket to permanently set which remote control button would operate it. If these ones will all need some kind of retweaking to do the same thing each time there is a power glitch then that sounds a right pain.

Just bought a 3-pack at a Morrisons garage on Wednesday.... for £5... Not happy, but these are great so definitely HOT.
#17
great deal, will be taking a trip to the local store today. :-)

I'm guessing these are RF not IR?

I need some IR ones for use with a logitech Harmony Remote that only has IR....

I thought employees weren't allowed to post deals ?

or is that only ebuyer employees? :p

Socket remotes are great for elderly people, my aunt had one at the age of 90 and it meant that she could turn her table lamps on and off without reaching / stretching / potentially falling over. She loved it!

is that a ruling with hotukdeals or morrisons?

Plenty at the Staveley store in Derbyshire

It's a HUKD rule, but mainly aimed at the marketing bods coming and posting stuff about their latest tat. Pretty sure no one objects to shop floor staff posting good deals they see at work.
#24
I find that people unlocking/locking their cars with key remotes interferes with my current remote controlled sockets so stopped using them as my sockets kept turning off.

I would be interested to know if these ones will suffer similar problems?

Might buy some to test at this low price.

well its definetly only the good stuff i post! :)

on the same section there's another offer, 50cm 4 socket extension £2.99 BOGOF........ very poor deal! especially as we have a poundland just 2 doors away that sells them!
stupidly though whoever did my orderpad last week ordered 2 cases of 20 of them! WTF?! gonna take a while to get rid of!
#27
asda are doing 3 packs for £5. buy that i mean 3 plugs/1 remote. great stuff
#28
Never seen these before, fantastic idea for the elderly or disabled I have to say. Can not personally see any uses for myself but great idea none the less. Voted HOT for that reason.
suspended#29
Shadow_boxer they're good for lots of uses if you think about it. I bought some when they were on offer where I worked for £1 for a set of 2 remotes and 8 sockets (bargain of the century) and I didn't really have a clue what I'd use them for but now I've got them I wouldn't be without them.

I've got the two lamps in the living room, my living room TV and hallway lamp on one remote which is great for a few reasons. Its good for security because it means I can turn the lamps on and off from in my bedroom if I hear a noise outside which I have done before and then looked out of the window to see someone running away but more generally I will sit in the room on an evening and turn the lamps and TV on with the remote, maybe the hallway as well which saves time and energy because the lamps are at opposite sides of the room then when I go to bed I turn the TV off as I leave the room (with remote) and head up to bed turning the lamps off as I go. There's nothing worse than turning a lamp off and then having to walk through the room in the dark.

I use the other remote to control my outside lights. Because I live in a bungalow it was easier to just send the cables to the lights (two at back and two on the side) into the loft with a plug on the end of each cable. Each one is plugged into a remote socket and then into normal 4 gang extension lead that ive got up there. Each light has its own button to turn it on and off. The only other way I could think of to do the lights would have been to hardwire them into the mains and put switches on the wall somewhere in the house which I'm guessing would have cost a couple of hundred quid in electricians charges.

Really are a great invention. Brilliant for christmas lights too....

You could always get one of these for free

Ha! It's a very good thing that it doesn't work both ways.

I know what he means though. My dad has one of these and if people use a remote to unlock their car it can turn his lights off.

However, these are generally very good devices. I checked our local Morrisons and they didn't have any in, but it is a small Morrisons. There's a larger one a couple of miles from here, so I might check there later.

My mum doesn't have a 'big light' in her living room. She has 3 lamps around the room, so this might be good for a one-switch solution.

If these are the same ones as the ones in Asda then after a powercut exceeding 10 seconds each socket will lose its memory. They will all flash and accept the first radio code they "see". So, if you have 3 sockets set to individual codes then you will have to remove 2 of them (or switch the power to them off if they are plugged into sockets with switches) and program the first one. Then plug the second one in and program that. Then the third one.

I have 9 of these and its a bit of a pain when I get a powercut.

Very useful at Christmas time when you have 20,000,000 sets of lights that need to be switched on and off.

Great price :D
