What a fabulous product
This is a proper fabulous product. I wanted to be able to turn on and off all the lamps in a couple of rooms and my jukebox and hifi as the sockets were all well and truly hidden behind furniture. I'd read a few reviews about the "fiddly selection switches" and wondered if I'd manage - it's fine. Just get a small flat headed screwdriver and first set the Roman numeral dial on the back of each socket to be the same as the selection on the slider on the back of the remote control - there's a small arrow on the rotary switches on the back of each socket - make sure it lines up with one of the four Roman numerals. Next pick the button on the remote that you want to associate with the socket by turning the second rotary switch on the back of the socket - this time using digits 1, 2, 3, or 4. You can set multiple sockets to the same number - for instance, all my lamps in both rooms are on button 1, the hifi on 2 and the jukebox on 3. Don't forget, you can always hang a multiway socket from each controller, so that multiple devices can be controlled from the same socket - assuming you don't put to heavy a load on the socket. Anyway, I'll shut up and get on an order another pack to go with my first five. Oh, and the remote works through walls, doors and ceilings - most excellent and worth a few quid more than some others that I've come across. you won't be dissappointed.
Great for home automation!
Combined with an arduino, raspberry pi and a webcam, I set up a voice activated home automation system, which is AWESOME.
I have just bought this unit from Maplin. 3 out of 5 units worked with ease. The other 2 units do not work with any channels or codes. Hence only 2 *as for 3 working units instead of 5 I consider this purchase as poor value for money.
"Remote Controlled Mains Sockets 5- Pack" These absolutely do work. They can handle a 55” Plasma TV, SKY HD box and a Freesat SD box easily all at the same time. They have a small non intrusive red light that comes on when turned on so you can see it’s live. The only negative is that if you have more than 4 you will have to share a frequency setting with any extras you add or in this case the 5th one. This means two plug sockets will be turned on and off at the same time as there are only 4 buttons on the remote control. However I recon they will save me and pay for themselves in just over a year’s use in not having things left on standby over night.
Great little devices. I wanted a means to access 13 amp socket switches that were difficult to get at and usually involved reaching behind TV's and computer desks. These solved the problem easily and quickly. I can now switch things on and off without any hassle. The up side, easy to expand by buying more units as you need them. The down side, they each use all of 1/2 watt power on standby!
dose what it says,ideal if your plugs are on the floor nearly, or behind tv or any were thats hard to reach
I was disappointed to find that there are only four sets of on/off buttons on the remote control. You have to use one pair of sockets controlled by the same button.Or you can use the fifth socket independently if you are prepared to switch channels however.
Bought these for my 81 year old grandmother who recently had a stroke resulting in left side paralysis. With these, she is now able to turn on/off her electric fire, lamps etc without relying on anyone else or having to move. very simple operation and we are all very pleased with them. only reason not giving 5 stars is because one of the 5 pack plugs didnt work, now that the other ones are in I didnt want to take them out to have to take them back.
Works perfectly. Easy to set up. Good value.
to me a load of rubish those setting buttons on the reverse are way too small I needed a magnifier and that was not much better
