Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have had one of these operating my pool cover in France for about four years now. It lives outside in a damp environment and works brilliantly. One winter an electrical storm destroyed the pool cover's electronic controllers and just about every other piece of electronics in the house - this little remote control unit was about the only piece of electronics that survived. The pool cover manufacturer want about Ј300 for their remote control kit, but this one does the job perfectly. I had forgotten all about it until I came back to get another one for a new project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the third Wireless Remote Control Kit I have purchased from Maplin and none have let me down. They seem to be very voltage and interference tolerant; just as well because one is mounted high up on a wall exposed to the elements. It does what it says in the book, therefore - five stars.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Instructions not great but all connected up and works fine replaced control on up and over garage door instead of replacing whole mechanism.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement for Garage opener I bought this to replace a TEC-KEY 2000 remote garage door opener. It was sent by next day delivery and it worked on installation. I had to visit the Stockport store to order an extra key and got great service. A neat product - highly recommended.

Transmitter battery: 23A (supplied - replacement JG91Y)
Operating frequency: 433.92MHz
Receiver supply voltage: DC 12 V
Receiver current: 6mA (standby), 36mA (switching)

Does the receiver need a neutral cable. I am replacing a wall switch in a outhouse & no neutral at the switch , just live in & live out. Need it to work at about 30 mts. Elliot.

Can this operate outside security lights? ie. Can I press the remote from the house, then this switches on the security lights, if wired from this to the lights?

Asked by: MickRoberts
We cannot offer full advice on mains electrical installations, this job would be best left down To qualified Electricians, if you are at all unsure we would strongly recommend consulting a qualified electrician for help and support or to complete the job for you.
