I love these devices. We use them to control a pair of hard-to-reach lamps and my only regret is that we didn't get them sooner. The whole system is really well designed: the remote is simple and clear, the controllers don't block the lower plug on the wall outlet, and everything is clearly labeled. Each package comes set to a particular channel, so you can get more than one set without them interfering with each other if you are careful to check the labeling first.

My only complaints are that we really could use a second remote, the remote itself has a stupid keychain attachment that is molded on (we removed ours with a Dremmel...why would anyone want to attach this thing to their keys?). The battery is also a pain to change since you have to unscrew the remote to do it, but it's one of those 12V cells that last forever so you won't be doing that very often (though prepare to pay when that time comes).

If you aren't afraid of a soldering iron you can easily change the channel assignments. Just look for the contacts labeled A0 through A3 and think in binary. Of course doing this will void your warranty, but it's a fast way to get multiple remotes for the same outlets, and multiple outlets controlled by the same selector. (There are 16 possible channels, making the "buy two sets and hope they match" approach impractical.)

UPDATE: December, 2010

The latest version of this product (as of Dec 2010) has a much smaller remote powered by a button cell battery and a small, telescoping antenna. The battery is much easier to change (there's a slide-out holder on the bottom of the remote) though I found that at first the battery wasn't making good contact and I had to re-seat it a couple of times.

I chose this product over the countless others you are no doubt considering, mainly because of how simple and clean the remote and outlet units look. I did not like the keychain option (I'm not putting that thing on my keys, come on!) by removing the connecting ring. I also didn't like the belt clip that was attached with two small screws, also easily removed. The outlet unit has a distinct sound when the remote switches the unit on, but the only one that doesn't care for this sound is my dog, she gives the outlet a good stare down. :-)

Years ago I invested in my first "clicker" for no other reason than I was too lazy every evening to get up off the couch and turn off the floor lamp. I've own 3 different clickers now and they all have one weakness - you often have to push the button a few times to get the receiver to react. This one is no different. It does help that the "on" "off" button are completely different buttons, rather than a toggle button on some GE models. But it's frustrating to pay this much and not have it work perfectly.

I purchased three complete sets of this product (Stanley 31164 3-unit remote control) because I needed to control two lights from three different locations. So far I am pleased with the product. It is doing what I need.

Contrary to another reviewer's experience, my units do support channel selection. Each receiver and transmitter has a 4-position slide switch on the back, allowing you to configure the set (transmitter and 3 receivers) to one of four different channels. That works as expected - you can control the same receivers from several transmitters, or you can put the transmitters on different channels so the sets are disjoint.

The transmitter battery is a standard CR2032 lithium coin cell - inexpensive and widely available. It is easy to replace - the battery holder unsnaps and slides out.

One of the transmitter units didn't work out-of-the-box. I fixed it by unscrewing the back, wiping the pushbutton contact pads with a cloth, and putting it back together. The contact pads are the same kind that are routinely used in television remote controls, so in general the reliability should be similar to TV remotes.

The transmitter has a retractable antenna - extending it gives better range.

We returned this item because some of the plug ins did not work with the transmitter. One pack we purchased only 2 of the plug ins worked. On the other pack, 1 of the plugs did not work with the transmitter

- Channel selector switch on both remote and outlets, can select one of 4 channels.

Cons
- Need to hold a button for about half-second to switch

I purchased this item and received it... plugged it all in according to directions and I always had one plug that would sometimes work, sometimes not. So I returned it to Amazon and ordered a new one. Well, the new one lasted for two days and now will not work at all. I checked the battery and anything else user serviceable and it just will not work. I afraid I'm starting to believe they're junk! I thought the Stanley name would be a safe bet but I was wrong. Bluntly, the item is junk! Now, having said that... perhaps your mileage may vary and you'll have years of enjoyment with it. But for me, no such luck... I either received two bad apples or they are truly junk. Be cautious when purchasing this item to be sure you can return it. I normally would not write such a negative review... I would just chalk it up to bad luck on my part or like I said, I just happened to receive two defective ones. BUT I truly doubt that! So I wanted to warn others who are considering this item... procede with caution!
