Excellent device – Y-A4 RF Remote Control Light Switch Reviews

- Build quality is pretty good. - The receiver box is smaller than I expected - 4 channels, you can turn on/off 4 devices. - Pretty good price. - All works fine. - Good RC working range. - RC has small LED for button press indication.
I think the main phase 220V input wire (red) to tiny for 4x1000 wattage. "- Four channels output (power 1000W x 4)" = 4kW The red wire for phase input is about 0.5-0.75mm2. http://www.diynot.com/pages/el/el004.php In table at the link: Conductor Size Current Maximum power (Watts) 1.0 mm2 10 amps Up to 2400 Watts So how it is possible to handle 4kW with so tiny wire? I think its not safe to handle so much watts. Question 2 "- Output power for each channel: incandescent lamp (max 1000W); energy saving lamp(max 200W / 6pcs at most); fluorescent lamp (max 280W / 5pcs at most)" What is the difference between energy saving lamps loaded with 200W and incandescent lamps with same 200W. I think is doesn't matter what you are using, the fact is that you're using same 200 Watts.
It's great device, works as expected, nice looking. It's worth price for this device. However I would suggest to use not very powerfull things, this is good for light lamps and some other stuff, but I really don't think that this can handle 4x1000 watts, the RED wire (phase) to tiny for that and if you load to much watts, it will be unsafe.
If you wanna control some stuff at your home, buy this device, this is realy helps you.
