This wireless hand-held transmitter will allow you to control your SkylinkHome receiving modules. The options are almost limitless as to what you can control. Remotely and wirelessly brighten and dim, turn on and off, lighting and appliances. For example open and close gates or garage doors, control your home audio system, arm or disarm a security system, turn off gas fire places, lift curtains to let in sunlight and much more.

    ROBERT -- venice, FL   5/23/2014
    Works as advertised.
    KRISTIN -- ballston spa, NY   1/16/2013
    I installed the SkylinkHome LS-318 Remote Controllable ON/OFF Screw-In Dimmer on a lamppost light that is about 150 feet away. It was only controlled by a breaker in a remote barn and I needed a convenient way to turn the lamp on from the house. In conjunction with the TC-318-1 simple handheld wireless remote, this has worked perfectly. The light will turn on from any point within the house, through multiple walls and windows. A second TC-318 hand-held remote is kept in the car and the light still comes on from even further away.
    EDMUND -- port charlotte, FL   1/7/2013
    Not compatible with receiver purchased which requires programming by shorting pins. This unit did NOT work for me.
    ROBERT -- mindemoya, ON   1/3/2013

    CHRISTOPHER -- east greenwich, RI   6/29/2012
    Simple and effective. In my installation works well through a wall and floor over 30 ft.
    STEVE -- galloway, OH   2/17/2012
    I brought both the remote and switch both worked great.But you do have to read the instructions.You have to hit the find button within 15 seconds after the power is turned back on.
    PETER -- n. thetford, VT   2/13/2012
    Good buy. Worked just the way I wanted.
    FRANC -- elmira, NY   12/18/2011
    I am totally satisfied with operation. Instructions for calibrating with PA 318 were poor and had to call for help twice - frustrating and unnecessary.
    ROBERT -- staunton, VA   7/16/2011
    easy to use, great range
