Works great – IR Remote Controlled AC Outlet for Appliances (220V) Reviews

posted by ronderwear on 12/07/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Works really well! Can get IR signals that bounce off walls too. Works with all the remotes I tried. It remembers the signal even when unplugged! I took it apart and integrated it into a light switch.
Cons:
Build quality is iffy. Wouldn't trust this with something more than a desk lamp or similar. Its 220v yet comes with American prongs... I took mine apart so no big deal.
Rated at 500W but I wouldn't bet on it...
Other:
To use: Press and hold the button for a few seconds until the red light starts to blink, release the button. Press your remote button and that's it!
Bottomline:
A cheap, smart alternative to the "Clapper".
Really good for lazy slobs! Get one!
