Works as advertised, 110 too – IR Remote Controlled AC Outlet for Appliances (220V) Reviews

Pros:
Easy to use and install, works with any existing remote, universal socket, works with 110V (didn't test 220V), no batteries needed.
Cons:
Remote not included, side sockets do not seem to work, need line-of-sight to operate, which is tricky since you need to point the remote at the socket and the power cable blocks the line of sight.
Other:
I use it to control a light in my bedroom from bed and the door using two universal remotes set to the same code.
The product came with a US-style plug so you will need an adapter for Europe.
Bottomline:
Works as advertised, 110V OK. Cool gadget.
