Hope they have improved the relays in these. I have a couple I bought a while back and one of them quite often won't switch. Give it a whack while pushing the button and it will again for a period of time until it sticks again. They may have fixed the problem since I bought mine but it was quite a common fault apparently.

Oh wow that doesn't sound good. Hopefully they've fixed that. Reviews from around July 2013 seem to be positive.
Do they work through walls or do they have to be direct line of 60ft eg switch in the bedroom to turn off the wifi downstairs

tl;dr don't buy through Paypal.
I have had 2 of them, both broke within a few months!!
Does anybody know the power consumption of the device?

I purchased a Energenie radio controlled remote controlled gang an year back. It was using 5W when idle, which was far higher than the 0.5W - TV / 0.5W - Bluray Player and 1W - receiver was totally using. In that case it was defeating the purpose of saving energy. So it ended up in the unused electrics cupboard.

So calculate your savings before taking a plunge.
Had mine for over a year. The remote switch stops working quite often... I have to hit the reset On the main unit and toggle the switch like a loony to getit working. On its way to death I think.
I've had mine for 4 months. All good.

My only gripe is that with the plug layout - I can't plug all the power adaptors.
How long would it take one of these to save the initial outlay in electricity over just switching them off on a night?
I've also had 2 of these which both stopped working after a few months. The problem is that when the relay stops working they are useless and can't even be used in the permanently "on" position.

Didn't realise you are on HUKD Mrs Utah.
I have heard about these but unsure, do they only save if you're too lazy to unplug and just leave it on stand by? Or when they are in use, they save power somehow? Looked at an E-on one, but wasn't sure.

My understanding is that for the switched sockets, the unit can turn off the sockets for you so disconnecting totally from the mains. The always on ones will remain on unless you turn off at the wall. You could get the same effect if you had two separate adapters...........you keep one on permanently (your routers etc) and the other one gets switched off at the wall when not used. The only advantage of this model is that you can turn off 6 sockets using a remote switch instead of at the wall and leave two on. You can get adapters that have individually switched sockets and you can turn each one on and off separately. However they would be the same price as this one.

The unit itself doesn't save any power........all it is doing is turning the power completely instead of leaving power on which wastes power for units that go into standby when switched off.

Currently out of stock but will get more.........."More than 200 on order, delivery delayed"
How much power does this really save? A shut down desktop and 2 monitors (which keep banging on about how economic they are everytime they boot up) surely don't use this much even over the 2 year life they advise?
What happens if you have 2? I assume the signals don't interfere? Is there a mobile app which can do the same or via home net work given it's wireless?
they have 3 switches so you can change the channels. I have 2, both on different channels, i think it works out that you can have 8 on different channels.

They are great, though the range is not all that good (fine for me as its all in 1 room)

the switches are really poor though which ultimately is my only worry. I could be wrong but they "feel" like they wont last that long.

Cool thanks. Got 2. I know belkin are doing a lot of automation through wemo, belkin.com/uk/…on/ , too expensive. But I'm wondering if this can be hacked into for the signal to be use by computer. ifttt.com/wtf
