  • For the switch to fit the upper and lower screw mounts on the back box in the wall needed to be bent in. The switch then then fitted very easily. The switch and remote operate exactly as described with no problems I thought this is an excellent product for the price paid

  • In terms of build quality this item is extremely poor. I partially disassembled it and found components that should not have been used, messily hand soldered into large blobs of solder, leaving both scorch marks and flux residue. Beneath its glossy exterior the unit looks as if it has been hand-made in someone's garden shed. It is a miracle that it works at all.

  • I found this switch very easy to fit and took less than five minutes to complete the job. However, I didn't realize that the switch would have a permanently illuminated LED display. Not being one to leave anything turned on when I am away from home, I have now removed the switch as a safety precaution. Without the LED display I would have awarded the switch 5 stars.

  • It is an extremely tight fit into a standard lighting wall box - any sort of rotrusion from the side, such as a grommet at the cable entry, will foul the body of the switch which is only a few mm smaller each way than a standard box. Depth is just about OK... Apart from that, it works satisfactorily.

  • My light switch was in a hard to get to place so this was an ideal replacement.Easy to fit and works well.

  • Works fine, but will only fit in a shallow (25mm deep) box if the wiring is forced against the side of the box, rather than at the back.
