Essential Info

Don't risk hurting yourself by feeling your way across a dark room looking for that hard-to-reach lamp or light switch. Add a light switch for a lamp, or extend an existing switch to a more convenient location. Turn on the lights from a convenient light switch that you can put most anywhere, without messing with dangerous electrical wires. Just mount the switch in any location where you can find it easily, and it will use wireless signals to turn the lamp on or off instantly. Install one or more outlets in your home and say goodbye to stubbed toes, twisted ankles and other common household injuries. The switch requires the use of a 12-Volt battery, included.

What's Included

  • Wall Switch Wireless Transmitter
  • Plug-in Base Unit
  • Mounting Screws
  • 12V battery
  • Instructions
  • More Info

    The wireless switched outlet is easy to install - practically anyone can do it using only a common flathead screwdriver. Just mount the wireless wall-switch transmitter in any convenient location within 50' of the outlet you want to control. Insert the plug-in module into the outlet and plug in the lamp you want to control, and you're done. The plug-in module receives wireless RF signals from the wall switch, turning the light or appliance on or off in synch with the transmitter. The plug-in module works with any lamp up to 500 watts.

    Want to use multiple units in the same house? No problem! Each wireless switched outlet can operate on one of four distinct channels. Note: Not compatible with fluorescent lights.

    Awesome product. Used to light up a safe remotely and it works VERY well. Discreet wall plug. I will eventually buy more.
    GRACE -- delray beach, FL   3/22/2013
    Excellent ... far better than known competition
    JERRY -- goshen, CT   12/27/2012
    Could have a bit faster shipping,but otherwise excellent.
    ROBERT -- naples, FL   2/9/2012
    works great. easy to set frequencies so multiple units work independently.
    Kyle Field -- cypress, TX   12/11/2011
    I purchased two of these and loved them so much, I bought three more. Being able to select the channel it runs on means no interference with other wireless switches. Definitely a GREAT product!
    EDWARD VAN -- hoover, AL   5/31/2011

    ELISSA GOLDSTEI -- naples, FL   4/3/2011
    This item was fine, They are getting harder to find.
    ELIZABETH -- waterloo, ON   11/8/2010
    I use it as a switch for my bedroom light which I cannot reach lying in bed. It's great!
    KERRY -- brooklyn, NY   10/28/2010
    Love these! We live in a 150 year old home with little wiring & few outlets, but with these I can walk into the house & easily turn the lights on. Just plan a bit ahead if you put more than one of these near each other so that you can change the frequency on the switch. Otherwise you'll turn lights on & off in other rooms by accident.
    JILL -- lake frederick, VA   7/5/2010
    The product is excellent. The area of improvement would be a clearer understanding of explanation of item. I bought it with the understanding that it was completely useable without having
    SUSAN L -- clarence, NY   2/11/2010
    Easy to install

    JUSTUS J. -- wallingford, CT   5/21/2009
    This switch looks and feels like a normal light switch. The remote responds quickly and accurately.
    RON -- everett, WA   5/1/2009
    Works great! Tested the range at 90 ft. I have a shop with 4 entrances and used 4 of these wireless switches to control 1 receiver unit that I wired inside a ceiling fluorescent light fixture. Saved me from a major wiring job.
