Great for the lazies! – IR Remote Controlled AC Outlet for Appliances (220V) Reviews

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

Pros:
-Easy to use (hold the small black button until the red light is blinking and do the same with the desired button on your tv remote)
-smaller than expected, about half the width of multi-socket adapters.
Cons:
-Rather pricey for a device that serves one purpose.
-Does not come in 3-pin but instead in a 2-thin-plate-pins that is unusable in Singapore's power socket unless you get a travel adapter for it.
Other:
I use this on a large hurricane fan that usually does not come with a remote so that I do not have to go across the room to switch it off. Now I can switch off both the tv and fan which is across my room without getting off my seat. Pure awesome.
Bottomline:
This device is cool and a cheap way to make your house or room automated with just one tv remote.
Normal methods of automating your room would cost over a hundred and requires the use of another remote control for it.
