  • What's Included
  • SkylinkHome's SK-8 Wireless 3-Way On/Off (Relay) Kit contains everything needed for creating a wireless, remote controllable, 3-way circuit with a 500 foot Radio Frequency (RF) range. The included SkylinkHome WE-001 Lighting Receiver In-Wall On/Off Switch replaces your existing wall switch allowing standard, local control of the wired load, with no neutral wire required. While the SkylinkHome TB-318 Wireless Battery-Operated Wall Mount Transmitter (also included) provides wireless remote control of the load wired to the WE-001 by communicating through Radio Frequency (RF). The TB-318 can mount almost anywhere, but will need to be located within 500 feet of the WE-001 In-Wall Lighting Receiver. This item is a wireless switch kit which includes both the WE-001 Lighting Receiver In-Wall On/Off Switch and TB-318 Wireless Battery-Operated Wall Mount Transmitter.

    Additional TB-318 Transmitters can be used for circuits requiring more than 3-way switching.

    The SkylinkHome System comprises a variety of wireless sensors, wireless remotes, wire-in and plug-in lighting or appliance controls. All wireless communication between SkylinkHome devices is based on rolling code technology. This ensures the highest security for your wireless signals being transmitted. For zone programming of these devices or to make this switch a member of a "Zone" (a group of lights controlled at the same time), you will need to purchase the 10 Button Deluxe Remote separately.

    Has anyone used this system in an exterior application in a cold climate. Note, the installation manual indicates for interior us only. Could b shielded from the weather elements but not the cold. have to be able to activate a light at the lake, 200' from the house.

    No need for ground wire Review by Steve
    No need for ground wire

    I installed the SK-8 to add a 3-way switch at the bottom of my basement stairs. Our 1960's house has no ground wires. All I had was a single pole on off switch at the top of the stairs. After removing the existing switch, I hooked the black wire in the box to the black wire on the receiver and white wire in the box to the red wire from the receiver and left the green wire from the receiver unconnected. I ran the antenna wire down inside the plaster wall. It works fine. One caveat: the CFL in my fixture flickers a bit till it warms up, lowering my rating one notch. I may try an LED. By the way, the battery in the wall switch is a CR 2032 button, easily available.

    5 minute install Review by ira
    5 minute install

    This was about a 5 minute install. longest part was disconnecting the old switch.
    works great and because i live in an apartment didn't have the ability to run wires to setup a 3 way switch. used for an additional switch in my kitchen. thinking of buying additional units.

    The second SK-8 that SmartHome sent me worked fine ... install was easy, range was fine about 50 feet thru several log walls). My only problem was that the first SK-8 delivered stopped working after 15 minutes. I got it installed and programmed and it was working fine, then nothing. The transmitter switch was obviously still sending as the receiver switch blinked every time transmitter switch was pressed, but the receiver switch stopped powering the load (3 -75W bulbs). Manufacturer tech support tried to help, and concluded something was wrong with the receiver switch. RFA process with SmartHome went fine, and a 2nd SK-8 was sent PDQ. After that no problems. The setup has only been working for a week now, so I can't comment on longevity of the product. All things considered, I would recommend SmartHome for their responsiveness, and would purchase the product again if I had a need.

    I needed a way to switch the carriage lights in my garage which is about 75feet from the main house. Ths product did the job perfectly. Installation was a breeze. It works like a charm. Highly recommend this product for remote switching applications.

    works as advertised. Sometimes the remote switch is a little hard to press but it works great.

    Installation was pretty straight forward. I notice when you use the wireless switch, it has to be done one at a time. I bought 2 of them. If both switches are used at the same time it doesn't work. I had to cut the plastic in order to make it fit in the double plate I bought. Overall I love them. I would buy them again.

    Review of 73027

    The contractor wanted $700 to install a 3 way switch in a small basement: this unit did the trick with far less hassle and visual impact. Great unit. CFL compatible, even on a old no-neutral circuit!

    But the unit is aggressively ugly. The base unit has an unfinished appearance and does not match the remote unit. The remote unit has an odd clear ring around the toggle matching nothing else. The supplied faceplace is a cheap material with a skylink logo on it. I tossed the faceplate into plastic recycling. The holder on the remote unit is a bit too wide for use in a double gang box, I had to trim mine, working carefully around the battery.
