So far it has worked fine for me, even through walls at a distance of close to 25 feet.
J. Falcon
Here's the solution and now I can turn the light off completely from the couch and make it movie night and not have to get up to put the lights back on!
John R
I pressed the button and my lights came on, but after pressing the button again never turned them off.

I Purchased this item to control an outdoor fountain. The distance from our front deck to the fountain is about 50ft. With the one exception noted below, this item has worked everytime on the first click and without interference to other remote controls in use. In my initial temporary installation of the unit, I was not careful to install the remote vertically with the plug-in receptical down as noted in the instructions. Water got into the unit during a heavy rain and the unit stopped working. After drying it out, it worked just fine. This is one reliable, tough product, and well worth the price.

Since I have a fountain in my back yard, I wanted something that would be able to switch the fountain on or off when I wanted. I also needed it to be remote controlled. I originally bought a remote control similar to this one on Ebay. It was a different brand. That one worked well for about 2 days. I was able to switch the fountain on or off about 50-60 feet away, even inside. But, for some reason, it decided to stop working as designed. It would only work if I was about 10 feet away. So, I decided to try another type. I came across this one on Amazon.com. Once I received it, I plugged it inline with the fountain's pump, and it has worked consistently every time. It will work with no obstruction to about 60-70 feet away. Inside through a wall, sometimes it will work sometimes not, cause there is a small obstruction in the way where I point the transmitter. But, it does work through walls as stated. Overall, I don't think you can get any better than this for the price! It was also cheaper than the one for sale on Ebay!

I bought this because its claimed range is 100' - more than many competing units. When I installed it in the fall, it never worked at anywhere near that distance - would work maybe 50% of the time standing inside the house next to a window that's about 50' from where the receiver is located (outside in the yard).

But here's the worse part: as the weather got colder, the range decreased - a lot! When it's 20 degrees F outside, it won't work from more than about 10 feet away. Completely useless for my application (trying to control outdoor lights from inside the house).

I'm an electrical engineer and understand the considerations with designing electronics to work over varying temperatures. Clearly the designers of this thing put in little or no effort in that area. For indoor use that might not be an issue, but outdoors = bad news.

I bought two of the wireless remote controllers and they are great. The remote control works just like a garage door opener. You point it at the devise and push the button. It's as simple as that.
I use one controller for the outdoor lights so I don't have to run outside on a dark, cold night to unplug them. I use the other for the Christmas tree to avoid tripping over the presents to unplug it. I realize some people may use timers for their holiday lights, but my schedule varies and I only like leaving lights on when I am at home and I always turn them off when I go to sleep.
This remote controller would also make a great exchange gift because it has universal appeal.

This is a great item, but the manufacturer produces two of these. Each one operates on a different signal and Amazon isn't letting you know which one you're getting. If you order two, you may even get both for all you know. That might be fine for how you want to use them, but I want one to match what I already have. I'd like to know or be given a choice. Wouldn't you? Look at the review of one person at http://www.amazon.com/gp/pdp/profile/A31JLPJ5CBJZ9V/ref=cm_cr_dp_pdp

I bought the package of 2 remote receivers and 2 remote controllers. The units installed easily and the everything works perfectly. But....... To my great annoyance both receivers and both controllers all work off the same signal! So when I turn on upper porch lights, the lower porch lights also come on, and vice versa. The URL for the company website is disconnected, so I am unsure what to do. Good quality product, but very silly design from my point of view.

This is a fantastic product. Anyone with outdoor lighting- especially around the holidays- should have this wireless remote. I bought two for my father for holiday lights and he loved them. The lights outside go on and off with just the push of a button. No more walking outside in the cold and/or bad weather. I'm going to buy some for myself now.

Outstanding product. I bought several after trying the one. I wish they would sell units which worked on different frequencies.
