5-remote on-off controller1/10/2014
Very useful & works great!
big and obvious but useful1/9/2014
big and very obvious - not current technology by any stretch of the imagination but convenient and serves it's purpose - recommended if kept hidden behind furniture and is definitely convenient with remote - (not sure why the categories on this item include "fun" and "educational")
Reliable and trouble free1/6/2014
I ordered because the X-10 system is very unreliable and erratic. Since I have installed the Etekcity receivers they have functioned flawlessly. I just wish they were able to be controlled with a computer or smartphone.
works as advertised; however does partially cover the lower socket of a double wall socket thereby making the lower socket useless.

I like these outlet, very handy
Beats installing another switch11/25/2013
Works great, convenient to control five different devices with only one remote, seems to be quality construction. I now can control the Christmas tree lights and the Lionel train from the same remote. Sure beats getting up out of my Lazyboy lounge chair to flip switches off and on.
Came as expected and worked as expected.
Better than others that I purchased.11/24/2013
One controller for all 5 outlets. Ability to switch each one on and off even without remote.
The switches work great.11/23/2013
The switches worked great. I connected them without any problem and they immediately worked. Two drawbacks are they have to be plugged in a certain way and take up plug room so I have to use extensions with some of them. The other problem is it uses a strange battery which may be hard to replace in the remote. But it is nice I can control up to five outlets in my room so I can turn lights off and on etc.
Remote Light Switch11/23/2013
Physical profile obstructs remaining plug in switch box. Top of unit should be trimmed to allow use of remaining plug.
Items work great. They are RF [radio frequency] operated so they will switch on and off from different rooms or different floors unlike line-of-sight devices.
getting tired of my sons leaving the lights on all night its nice to know that I can turn them off from my room without getting out of bed. works well ... thank you
Convenience at it's best!10/11/2013
I bought this 5-outlet device and a 3-outlet device. Both are extremely effective and so easy to set up. You just turn on the light/device, insert an outlet switch between the existing outlet and plug for your device, them operate it from the remote. No other setup is required or possible. Upon using the remote, it's instant on/off without delay! My wife jokingly rolled her eyes - "another gadget"! However, she loves and has told me almost daily how convenient it is.
I use this to power the lamps in my office at work some times. I have the remote on the back of my door. I don't have to turn on all five lamps individually every morning. And when I step out of the office for lunch, I can easily flip them off to save energy. They work awesome. Every time. I would buy more sets for every room of my house if I didn't have light switches. And even then... Christmas lights will never be the same.
