Essential Info

The WE-318 Lighting Receiver In-Wall On/Off Switch with Transmitter was designed to operate up to a 1,000 watt load at 120 volts of alternating current (120VAC), for either lighting or appliances. Skylink’s WE-318 is a kit which is comprised of the WE-001 Lighting Receiver In-Wall On/Off Switch, 1,000 Watts and the TM-318 Snap-On Wireless Remote Transmitter.The WE-001 features two operating modes: countdown mode and switch mode. The included remote features one button which has a toggle function turning the load on with one press and then off with a second press. Essentially it will send a command for the opposite operating mode to which the switch is currently functioning. For example, if the switch is currently on, then the transmitter will send an off command and vice versa. Pressing and holding the button on the TM-318 transmitter will allow you to brighten and dim loads controlled by a dimmer module. Users will release the button once they notice the light is at the appropriate intensity. One CR-2032 battery will be required in order to power the TM-318 remote transmitter (Included).

To use this relay switch, simply replace your old pre-existing switch with the new WE-001. Being that there is no neutral wire needed for the WE-001 to operate, replacing the old with the WE-001 will be as easy as disconnecting then reconnecting two wires. Once properly installed, you will be able to wirelessly control lights or appliances powered by the switch locally, or remotely with the included transmitter and a variety of other SkylinkHome transmitters. This switch offers a touch-sensitive surface allowing you to control the load with a brush of your finger across the surface. The snap-on wireless remote transmitter TM-318 (included) can be used as a remote controller for this dimmer and physically attaches to the switch face. When attached, the touch-sensitive surface is covered and the TM-318 is used as a standard local control of the load. To achieve remote control over the WE-001 from a wireless transmitter (included), you must first program the switch to be a responder of that transmitter. The programming is a very simple process done with the set buttons located on the switch and on the transmitter. A maximum of 8 transmitters can be paired to one WE-001 relay switch. This allows you to add more wireless hand-held remote controllers, or motion sensors to your system for flexibility, security, and comfort.

    Was a hard to find item but you had it and it works great !!
    BUELL -- bakersfield, CA   9/6/2013
    Delivery was timely. Instructions were clear and simple. The switch worked the first time. I'm 76 years old and it saves me a lot of steps. I love it.
    MICHAEL -- donalds, SC   5/9/2013
    What an effort saver. I installed in the lighting circuit for the outside lights on my detached garage. Now I can turn on the spotlights and carriage lights of the garage without having to go out to the garage and flip a switch. I like it so much, I'd definitely recommend it to others.
    ED -- mill valley, CA   2/18/2013
    Works as advertised ... easy to install
    MEL -- reading, PA   12/20/2012

    CRISTIAN -- redmond, WA   12/17/2012
    Works as expected, including CFL. Great product.
    Chris -- memphis, TN   9/17/2011
    I bought 2 of these switches to control flood light on a detached garage. One of the units worked as described. In fact it exceeded my expectations in terms of ease of installation and transmitter range. The other one was unable to link to the remote transmitter. It went into programming mode but had no response to the learn code from the transmitter. I'm glad I got two or I would wonder if I was doing something wrong. The fact that one was programmed with ease and the other failed on multiple attempts reassures me that I got a defective unit. I just got off the phone with customer service at smarthome and already have my no cost shipping label for exchange. One point off for the hassle. We'll see how they hold up.
    ANNE -- pittsburgh, PA   8/28/2011
    Replaced indoor light switch for front porch lights. I use the remote to turn on the lights so I can see the front steps in the dark. Works great!
