Product overview

• Works as part of the LightwaveRF home automation range

What can this socket do?
Fully remote controllable, the LightwaveRF single gang 13A mains socket is a great addition to give you full control over your household appliances. With the built-in LightwaveRF technology, you can control this from one of the handheld remotes from the range (sold separately) or even use your smartphone, tablet or computer to turn the socket on and off. This can prove invaluable for security purposes when you are out of the house to deter burglars, allowing you to control things like lighting to make it look like someone is home Add in the LightwaveRF Socket Locker and you can lock the socket to on or off, this can stop children turning their television back on if they’re in bed, leaving you in the knowledge they will get a good night’s sleep.

How easy is this to install?
If you have a working knowledge of household electrics you should be able to install the socket yourself. It is installed in the same way as a standard socket and will fit on to a 25mm or 35mm back box. If you are in any doubt, we recommend you consult a trained electrician, who will be able to wire this in.

Please note: To use the app with this product, you will require the optional LightwaveRF Wi-Fi Link A23RX.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I bought one of these sockets along with a "Wifi Link" and an "Ecometer" on Friday night and much to my surprise had it all installed and working in 30 minutes. I've been playing with it all weekend and it seems to work perfectly :-). I had been meaning to try out home automation as I'm away from home a lot and this seems to fit the bill perfectly and is reasonably priced. The hardware is of very good quality but the software is rather amateurish - I hope this will be fixed as it lets the product down. The software works but is rather clunky. The instructions are not in Chinglish but proper English and once you get the hang of how it all works its easy. There are some good You Tube videos which makes operation clearer. The controller box & system is not really Wifi in that it operates at about 400kHz but the principle is the same and it works much better - through very thick granite walls in my case. The Ecometer works well and now I can turn lights on & off, check my power consumption all via the internet. I'm just about to use the relay LightwaveRF sell to turn my oil CH boiler on and off until their heating controller is launched. If you are toying with the idea of trying Home Automation why not give this a try. For Ј100 you can't really go wrong for a basic setup. Well done Maplin & LIghtwave RF! I have absolutely no connection with either company but am an inveterate gadgeteer.
