Awesome long range remote (mode modded) – Electrical Appliance RF Wireless Controller with Remote Reviews

posted by RBLAND on 06/04/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Excellent, Works well as described on 230V NZ. Build quality looks good. Nothing poor. Will probably need modifications to run at 110V, which was a simple change of a capacitor (as described in the comments at the bottom)
Cons:
None! Markings on top are a bit smudged, but who cares right!
Other:
I just finished converting mine to 12V, which was very simple :D Also added an external antenna, range is really good now, Also added an internal LED, which shows if the relay is active or not! I also made it so that you can switch between Momentary Push-button mode or Latched ON / Off mode. (see image for modification!)
Bottomline:
If you are having problems turning this thing off, then it is probably due to running this thing at less than 230V, changing the capacitor inside with a suitable one (as per the comments at the bottom) will fix the latching problem on 110V.
