Yes its an off brand, but I thought I would try it for the cheap price. I had no idea that adding remote controlled outlets to holiday lighting could be such a great idea. I cannot wait to take down my holiday decorations and move these outlets over to my table lamps. The only odd thing, is the included remote comes with 5 buttons, but this set only contains 4 outlets. Still, a great purchase that works perfectly. I would buy again and recommend.

(I used this for my 2 living-room standalone tower-lamps) Before I had this when I come home I would go to each lamp and individually switch on. I could go through the more expensive route by having our wiring redone so a wall outlet would work w/ a switch, but instead we got this. Now we come home and press button 1 and 2 for both lamps to come on...very convenient!

Things I LIKE:
1. Pairing was fairly simple by following the instructions. Took about 10 minutes to get it up and running (used only 2 out of the 5).
2. Wireless remote offers a portable switch! I attached the switch w/ Velcro and attached it to the wall near a walkway.

Things I DISLIKE:
1. Remote feels like cheap plastic. I hope it doesn't break if I drop it. (the outlets feels more sturdy)
2. Outlets are fat/wide! Although it plugs into 1 outlet, it may cover a second and potentially a 3rd depending on where you plug it! For normal wall outlets, if you put it on the top the bottom is fine, but for power strips, etc., plan accordingly!

NEUTRAL / Notes:
1. I used only 2 out of the 5 and it works nicely.
2. On several occasions I had to press the buttons more than once to turn on/off, but not regularly. Maybe I have to press harder sometimes?

Even though these items work great, the listing says you can add other outlets, so I bought two 5 packs, but their is a catch that they do not tell you about. These 'Programmable' remotes will only ever work with 5 outlets. So when I press button 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 that will turn on the outlets allocated to that button on the remote. So having two remotes both which have the same buttons mean two outlets turn on at the same time for that number as in my case as I have two 5 packs. Even if you reprogram them, the remotes (1 to infinity) will only ever give 5 distinct codes. So whilst you can reallocate a button to a unit, you cannot have more than 5 individual outlets. For me this sucks as I just wasted a bunch of money on two packs of blatant lies (Their video says the same about unlimited outlets.)

Other info. The remotes are: 99mm Height, 55mm Wide, 41 mm deep (62mm deep including pins)

Max Rating is: 10A 1200 Watts (120v 60Hz)

RF Frequency is: 433.92 Mhz

The plugs case is connected together with 2 security screws (Needs 5mm flat head screwdriver with 2mm notch in center.

(It looks like the center orientation of the socket maybe able to be changed (obviously violating warranty) but I have not been able to confirm this yet.

Hope all this helps.

*** Update ***

To open the case, you need a #6 security spanner. The enclosure has two clips one at the bottom and one at the top to unlock the case.

For those with soldering skills, the socket can be rotated 180 degrees. However the tails going from the PCB to the socket would need to be replaced with longer ones. The Mini PCB is 40.15mm, x 37.8mm and 22.7mm in height.

I live in tight quarters and have lights and appliances in places not easy to access for turning on and off.
This remote system is the answer. I can program the remote and turn things on and off from a central location instead of having to twist myself into a pretzel to reach the switches.
The system is easy to set up even easier to use.

They work well and at a longer distance than most. However, they are larger than I would like although they do not block the other receptacle on a dual outlet.

But not perfectly. I can only program 3 of the outlets as buttons 1 & 2, and 4 & 5 both seem to want to control the same outlets, despite being reprogrammed several times. Quite frustrating.

I have the older style which toggles and have had no problems. All 5 lamps and outlets are located behind large columns. They did not require programming so I just plugged them in and they worked perfectly. I bought this new style for additional lighting..... also behind columns, mainly because of the smaller size. Okay, so I like the smaller size, but the remote works inconsistently; number 1 and 2 outlets turn on the lamps immediately, but for the number 3 outlet, I have to lean over and direct the remote behind the column. Number 4 & 5 sometimes work together when I press #4, sometimes they work if I stand up and walk over to the remote, and sometimes they simply do what they are supposed to do, after pressing the number 3 or 4 times. Is it better than having to turn on each individual light...yes. But I wish I had just bought another set of the older style.

I love this product. Originally I had only one remote that I used in my bedroom. The light switch is in an awkward place across the room behind a bookcase so I hated stumbling around in the dark groping for the switch. When I had only one remote I could only turn the light on from one doorway and now I can do it from either the bedroom door or bathroom door. It's awesome! The only thing I miss about my old one is that it was a switch instead of a button but I understand why they did that.

+Works as described but:

-It's bulky and ground prong limit only one to be used per outlet.
-They're cream colored vice white & two came had minor black ink smudges.
-One of the four came with a malfunctioning "learning" button (button was completely pressed in & moved to the side and was stuck preventing me from using the learning button to reset a remote).
