Great remote controlled AC! – IR Remote Controlled AC Outlet for Appliances (220V) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

Pros:
I am planning to use the "Flat to Round Power Plug Convertor" I am in singapore, singapore As explained, just plug it in and press the "train" button while pressing ANY button on ANY remote control! So I am using the TV's remote control. It's very usefull, for example, for switching power to a lamp located behind a furniture or in a narrow area. I use my Harmony remote, however this device works basically with any IR remote. Hold the black button on the device, wait until it blinks, press a button on the remote (which is pointing to the device) so it learns the command
Cons:
The black button is extremely small, could be a bit bigger for easy use.The two side sockets are useless in Singapore and many countries with wide plugs. No ground connector either, so won't work safely for all appliances. The power socket on top is poorly weighted, so plugging something heavy into it makes the entire device fall out of the wall. It should only be used for light things (heavy power packs may not work)
Other:
Something so cheap, simple, and usefull, should be sold in every shop. without any cheerleader interfering) by being able to access remotely any electrical appliance. Because, as everyone knows, the less power we use, the better our future might be.
Bottomline:
Jus tbuy it
