What makes these plugs different?
This plug sockets are part of the LightwaveRF home automation range. Not only do they come with a remote control to turn them on and off but you can use the downloadable app to do this from anywhere in the world, with an internet signal. You are also able to store mood settings and become part of a mood lighting scene in combination with other LightwaveRF devices allowing you to recall the settings for situations, such as a movie night where you require the lights to be low, at a touch of a button

How easy are they to set up?
To set up the plugs without using the app, it’s as simple as plugging them in to your existing sockets and inserting a battery in to the remote. The plug and remote are already set up to work with each other and plug and play.
To use them with the app and be able to control them remotely over an internet connection you will need the optional LightwaveRF Wi-Fi Link. This Wi-Fi link will allow you to connect to the internet with your LightwaveRF devices so you can turn items on and off.

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 Setup with the LW WiFi link N55LL for use with a smartphone over the web. Works really well just need to use the app to pair each socket instead of the local remote if you wish to use it over the internet

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I bought these about 4 months ago and one of them now only works if you hold the remote an inch from the unit, while the others remain OK so far. Changed the battery in the remote but it made no difference - its seems to be the unit itself. When it worked it did do the job of allowing me to switch items off in inaccessible places.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So simple and easy to fit I bought these with the hub and had them paired and up and running in no time. Quick to pair and swap out. I do have an issue where I ad them on a timer in one room, I then moved the plug to another room on a difference schedule but it seemed to "remember" the older schedule and was switching on when I wasn't expecting it to. I have raised a ticket with MegaMan - hopefully this is just an oversight on my part.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from bought these a few weeks ago, work ok, but range is very poor, you have to be within two metres for satisfactory operation. The old model i had (not same make) had a range of about 6 metres

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lightwave RF I am very disappointed with product. Unlike earlier types it is not possible to link these sockets to 2 remote control devises, so a remote control must be moved within the house, rather than having 1 on the ground floor and another on the first floor. Also the signal from the remote control interferes sockets not links to it by 'hand shake' so appliances are switched in error, I am so disappointed with the devise that I will be returning the unopened package as soon as I possible can

Having bought the whole system, hub, sockets etc I find that these particular sockets are not 'Dimmers' and yet your webpage clearly states that they are. Please advise as they're all now installed at cost to me.

The LightwaveRF app should allow you to control light effects. Stand alone they on switch on and off.

Is there a limit to how many of these sockets you can have if using the phone app and internet link (i.e. could I have up to 6 of these without their "addresses" clashing with each other.
