It works – IR Remote Controlled AC Outlet for Appliances (220V) Reviews

posted by kfchow on 08/05/2013 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Learns in any infra-red code from an existing remote control. Has a universal plug at the top to fit any region power connector. Plug on bottom suits US/China but the pins rotate to fit AU/NZ plug type.
Cons:
No cons it works. Connected it to my control system for automated christmas lights.
Other:
Not sure how electrically safe these things are. The gauge of the wire connected to the relay looks like thin. I would not recommend utilising heavy duty appliances/high current devices like heaters on these as you may burn your house down.
Bottomline:
Its a cheap IR controlled GPO. Would only recommend it for low current devices that you want to control using a universal remote control or control system.
