Excellent! – BY-7E RF Wireless Lighting Controller Reviews

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

Pros:
Very well built, all metal, wires of excellent quality. It works via RF and not IR. Through walls and has a great range. The output is controlled by relays, instead of thyristors.
Cons:
Relays are simple contact, you can not control parallel connections without replacing the relays.
Other:
This is a great option for those who want to automate a living room or bedroom, but I suggest changing the relay for one with NC-C-NO contacts to keep the power switch on the wall and use the control switch to secondary (parallel connection).
Bottomline:
I did not disassemble the remote control, but I think is possible to change the operating frequency. There are a trimmer and coil in the receiver.
