With the incredible Radiplug, this home automation is now possible and the possibilities are endless!
Now you're lamps, heaters, fans or anything 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 go through walls unlike Infrared.

Each RF socket has 5 channels than can be set from the switch at the back.
For example, if you had 3 lamps plugged into the RF sockets on different channels you could turn them on individually or if set on the same channel you could turn them all on at the same time.
You can use as many RF sockets on the 5 different channel selections as required.
The set consists of 3 sockets and 1 remote control. Remember you can run as many Radiplugs as you require on the 5 different channels - Buy 2 or more and save on the postage!

- 30 Metre Range using Radio Frequency
- Manual On/Off Switch
- Battery for remote control included (12v A23)
- Maximum Socket Power: 3000W
- Frequency: 433.92MHz

Note: to use 5% code - need to pay with credit/debit card - it will not work with google checkout or paypal.

Hi, this is OK if you have an Aldi near you, which I dont. For an online deal, I thought this was good.

These look good, I assume they don't dim though?

Another benefit of the Aldi ones..... they use ordinary AAA batteries, whereas the ones in OP use an expensive harder to obtain 12v one. (as do the recent Lidl sets!). That said, I have had my Aldi remote control for well over a year, and I a still on the original batteries.

I have a set of these too i bought very recently, and the good news, you can set the sockets to work with the Aldi remote too (not the dimmer as I don't use it), even thought the design is totally different.

I just got a set at Lidl yesterday,& the remote uses a 9v battery (PP3 or R22) not a 12v one.

I have just got 2nd set of aldi ones. Any idea if you can get 2 remotes 2 work off the same socket? :thinking:

Incidentally the range on the aldi ones is very good. Be a shame if I cant work out how to get both remotes working.

Yeah, that's why I bought a set... I always have PP3s around, it is the OP that uses a 12v. the Aldi ones use 2xAAAs
Either way, the local newsagent or corner shop won't have a spare 12v one when it runs out and you wan't to get it working again pronto! :-(

I can't see how you would be able to, as you teach the socket FROM the remote; (remote codes are not selectable, but random) but you can get 2 sockets to switch using one remote easily (in my case, one downstairs and one upstairs switch using the one click from one remote turns off my powerline Ethernet adaptors at both ends.)

Yep I thought this was the case. Tried pressing both remotes at same time but theory behind that is flawed as its the remote that generating the code.

Wanted to have a remote for downstairs and a remote for upstairs (unless they control separate sockets), but guess thats a no go with these. I have the ByeBye sockets at my parents which allows multiple remotes but the range on them is no where near as good. Cant win!

The ones that csiman posted earlier will do it. But personally I only use them on lamps, use on other stuff at your own risk.

good price but sorry these are largely novelty and ended up not being used as the remote was always at opposite end of room for lamps and remote ones in other rooms often failed to respond to on switches.
when is someone going to come out with one the has an led indicating status of plugs??

Can't imagine the problem you mean!? Surely lights that are switched ON, are lit up, and the off ones are dark!
Most equipment has LED display, so that would be no problem either. You can even hear them switch too.

A few people I know have bought some once they saw mine.

Not had the slightest problem with mine, They switch in other rooms faultlessly too, hence I bought a second set for other gear. I use them for PC stuff, router( which is upstairs well away from my pc), Media Storage, also some AV gear. It means I can switch on what I want, when I want, and turn it all off without scrambling behind the TV or PC.

Yea saw those, Aldi ones handle switching power of 3200w so think I'll stick with these. Just annoying 2nd remote is redundant now. Well expect I'll use it for xmas lights next month! :thumbsup:
