  • Adds a switched outlet without installing additional wiring
  • The control signal passes through walls and floors, operating receivers up to 50 feet away
  • Great for 600w incandescent, 300w fluorescent or 600w appliances

Essential Info

Add instant remote-control lighting anywhere in your home without rewiring. The Wireless Decora-Style Plug-In Switch Kit consists of a plug-in module and a wireless transmitter that looks like a standard Decora-style switch but actually uses radio-frequency signals to turn the module's connected lamp or appliance on and off. The Wireless Decora Plug-In Switch is powered by 4 AAA batteries (sold separately).


What's Included

  • 1x - Wireless Decora-Style Wall Controller
  • 1x - Wireless Plug-In Receiver
  • 1x - Wall Plate

  • More Info

    Just plug the light you want to control into the base, which plugs into any standard 15- or 20-amp wall outlet. Place the switch up to 50 feet away, and when you use the Decora-style paddle, it will turn your light or appliance on and off. The control signal even passes through walls and floors. The Wireless Decora-Style Plug-In Switch Kit is capable of controlling any 600w incandescent, 300w fluorescent, or 600w appliance.

    This kit can be operated on one of two channels (A or B). This means that you can add an additional kit to operate a separate light or appliance without interference, even in the same room. You could also purchase two kits and have each wall switch control the same two plug-in modules simultaneously. Each transmitter comes with a matching wall plate.

    Note: This kit is not X10 compatible.

    very good
    RUTH -- bloomsburg, PA   1/17/2013
    EXCELLENT PRODUCT. Easy to install and so convient to use.
    GRAHAM -- astoria, NY   10/7/2011
    Works exactly like it says, definitely would buy another if i ever have another room with just outlets and no overhead light wired in.
    REID -- ottawa, Canada   11/3/2010
    I bought two of these switches with the intention of operating two floor lamps with only one switch - both set to frequency A, or both set to B. Everything worked nicely at first, but after a few hours of the lamps being on only one of the lamps would respond to the on/off switch. I tried with both frequencies, but the problem was consistent. So I bought a replacement for the receiver that wasn't working properly and it also worked fine at first. But then it stopped responding to the switch after only a few hours. I'll be returning both extra units and stick with only the one that has been consistently working. My experience with this product has been okay at best. If you only need one switch, this product works great. But if you want to use more than one switch, then the reliability is inconsistent.
    DOMINICK -- tuckahoe, NY   4/16/2010
    This is a great product but my experience with it has been inconsistent. The first one I bought did not work so I exchanged it, and it has worked flawlessly since. I recently bought two more, both of which have had issues. One works but I have to either hit the switch several times or hold it down to make it work. The other one worked fine for about 1 week and the "off" half of channel A stopped working. So now I'm on channel B and hoping that it won't break also. Overall this is great product, but the quality could be better. It looks good and is easy to install and operate. I just wish it would operate more consistently.
    DOMINICK -- tuckahoe, NY   4/8/2010
    I love this product! (I just got my second one - I have one for an under cabinet light in the kitchen, and the other for a set of reading lights.) The convenience of not having to fumble around with small hard to reach switches on the light fixtures themselves is priceless! The product is a great value and looks great too! Very easy to install also. The only downside I've found is that sometimes the switches are turned on by stay frequencies. This happens very rarely though. (As a precaution, I just turn off the light switches if I'm going out of town.) Overall I'm very happy - great product!
    TOM -- east wallingford, VT   2/26/2010
    These do not work consistently enough to be usable. One unit triggers the other despite being set to a different address.
    RUTH -- davison, MI   2/20/2010
    Excellent! Got this to solve an Under cabinet lighting system for our house. We have several "Handy Switches" and think they work great, but our delema was that we had installed two sets of under cabinet lights with two plugs. Problem solved with two of these set on one channel. Switches look nice too.
    Ruth G -- davison, MI   2/1/2010
    This was a great resolution to wanting under-cabinet lights in our kitchen. We've used the Handy Switch in other areas of our house for some time, but this problem involved more than one outlet. This is a wonderful solution to an extensive wiring problem. We bought two for the two outlets and put them on one channel. Works great and I actually like the look of the switch much better.
    JOHN E. -- naples, FL   1/14/2010
    Works perfectly.
    EDWARD W -- pleasant hill, CA   1/5/2010
    ordered 2 of these items - one quick working correctly within a week - keeps turning on a few seconds after I turn it off.
    ROBERT -- mission viejo, CA   12/13/2009
    The switch allows us to see where we are going when we enter the room. Because the wall switch looks like an ordinary wired switch, visitors have no trouble understanding how it works.
    RYAN -- san diego, CA   11/15/2009
    Works as advertised. Only complaint is the switch does not fit a standard single gang box.
    BRIAN -- brighton, MA   10/19/2009
    The main advantage was that multiple units use the same transmission frequency. I was able to use two switches for the same lights. I can turn them on from either doorway.
    FRED -- andover, MA   8/22/2009
    Wall switch is very well made and looks great on the wall. Backing plate even has metal threaded inserts to receive the two screws from the finish plate (no typical screwing into plastic). Works like a charm. Very happy with this purchase.
    VICTOR -- miami, FL   8/15/2009
    Excellent product and service.
    JEANETTE -- benicia, CA   8/11/2009
    The first one did not work so I returned it and you sent another. It works great. Now I don't have to walk into a dark room and I can push the "on" button. I wish I could plug two lamps into it though.
    NANCY S -- stoughton, MA   7/28/2009
    Easy to install and a smart invention for non electrian job.
    DANA -- long beach, CA   7/8/2009
    This product is exactly what I wanted and works beautifully. I can't believe how fast it arrived at my home!
    EDWARD -- morristown, NJ   5/3/2009
    The wireless switch has two transmit channels. The default channel 1 was faulty. The light always turned off by itself after about 2 minutes. Changed to channel 2 and it works as advertised.
