Essential Info

Tired of that old pull-string light fixture with the chain that disconnects every other time you pull it? Thanks to the Wireless Light Socket Switch, you'll be able to turn the light on or off with a convenient wall switch that you can mount anywhere, without having to connect a single wire. The non-invasive installation takes just a few minutes, using a common flathead screwdriver. Add one to your attic, basement, garage, walk-in closet, laundry room or any other location that uses pull-string light fixtures, and you'll never have to search in the dark for that pull-string again. This product is powered by 2, 3-volt lithium batteries that are included.

Hands-On Research:
This product is simple, safe, and very easy to install. The Wireless Light Socket Switch is the perfect product because it requires absolutely no wires to operate. Once installed, I turned the light on and off roughly 25 times without any problems. Once the command is sent (switch is pressed), it takes about a second to turn the light on or off.

What's Included

  • One Screw-in Light Bulb Base
  • 2 Wall Switch Decora Faceplates White/Ivory
  • Mounting Screws
  • 2 3-Volt Lithium Batteries
  • More Info

    Multiple Channels
    The Wireless Light Socket Switch has 4 selectable channels, A, B, C and D. This allows you to use up to 4 separate switch kits in your home. The channel selector is located on the side of the screw-in light bulb base and can be easily adjusted by removing the black, dip switch covers. The unit itself is labeled A B C D to help eliminate confusion between channels.

    Installs in Minutes
    This unit is as easy as 1-2-3 to install. 1. Screw the receiver into the lamp or pull chain fixture. 2. Screw the bulb into the receiver. 3. Mount the transmitter at the desired location, within operating range (50 feet), with tape or the screws provided.

    *Works with other Carlon Wireless Switches.

    product as expected, works correct, waited too long, bad information, product on back order
    DAN -- houston, TX   6/27/2013
    The light switch has been erratic at best, it works some of the time. Not very happy.
    STEVEN -- los angeles, CA   5/30/2012
    Works well if bulb is not enclosed in the fixture. Seems to be a problem with heat build up if bulb is enclosed: switch will not turn light off. If bulb is enclosed you must use low watt bulb that does not generate much heat. If bulb is not enclosed in the fixture you probably will have no problem at all.
    KELLY -- salem, IL   9/30/2011
    Worked fine for about two days, then constantly had to change channels, then would work for a few hours and then quit. Pretty much junk!
    Simmlank -- salem, IL   9/13/2011
    These Are JUNK! You have to change the frequency constantly and mine is within ten feet of the receiver. Then they both just stop working. Do not buy!
    JOHN -- west chester, PA   6/9/2011
    Simple solution to a common problem. Love it. Great service too.
    RON -- oak park, IL   2/4/2011
    Worked like a charm. Easy installation and solved my problem perfectly.
    KEVIN -- roswell, GA   2/4/2011
    So good I bought two more. I use on for a light in the basement and (although the basement is not closed off) the switch is on the third floor and easily turns the light on. Well-made and comes with two color plates!
    JEFFREY -- washington, DC   11/4/2010
    Works well 80% of the time, but inconsistence switching. The light sometimes does not turn on unless an adjacent light is on or off. I switched the circuits, but still have this issue. Use it for secondary lighting locations only.
    JDAIrish -- Indiana   11/4/2010
    GREAT product but beware it only lasts for approximately 1 year before it stops working. I am getting ready to purchase my third one for I love it when it does work. Wish they could build a little longevity into it. We utilize the unit for our pantry in our kitchen so it gets a lot of use. I would recommend this to anyone but just beware it is an electronic component, thus won't last long.
    TEDDY -- durham, NC   11/1/2010
    BOTH SWITCHES DID NOT WORK!
    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. They do require longer harps if you put them on your lamps!
    JILL -- craig, CO   10/2/2010
    We love our wireless switch! We no longer risk life and limb to turn on the laundry light by going through the dark garage.
    MKC -- col hgts, MN   9/16/2010
    works very well -- easy to install. would recommend to anyone needing this for an old plug string circuit
    PHIL -- aston, PA   7/23/2010
    Have not installed it yet. Plan to install it mid August. Hopefully it will be a 5 star rating. I previously installed onother similar wirelesss socket switch which would only work for an hour at a time and then would overheat and not work. This is a different mfr, so hopefully it will be successful.
    DIANE -- north huntingdon, PA   7/4/2010
    Bought one approx. a year before and the socket part went bad- hope this one lasts longer for the price!
    LISA -- arlington, TX   5/13/2010
    It is a great product. Just screw in light bulb, screw in light socket and you have remote switch...Easy. I love it.
    DAVID -- flower mound, TX   3/1/2010
    The wireless switch is such a great find! I installed it with no issue and it has worked flawlessly. I even bring visitors to my house to my bedroom closet just to show them how cool it is.
    FRANK -- new york, NY   2/17/2010
    SmartHome promptly replaced the defective unit I had bought, and so far it's working just fine.
    JUSTIN -- hastings on hudson, NY   1/6/2010
    This item is bad, bad, bad. I am on my 3rd one. First didn't work out of the box, next one worked for a few weeks, then nothing.
