Customer Reviews

Worked when it was first plugged into the wall outlet.
Zack
I was so excited - I hate having to get out of bed to turn the lights off at night.
The Murphs
On the last day of the 30 day warranty, one outlet of the clapper stopped working.

I have an incandescent floor lamp and the Clapper works great with it. OTOH, another lamp is fitted with fluorescent bulbs, and the Clapper doesn't work at all. I called the manufacturer and only then was told that the Clapper will not work with a fluorescent fixture. Nowhere is that mentioned. Beware.

First a warning in reply to all those who've had their clappers go up in flames, smoke or short out. I have no way of knowing what those folks had plugged into theirs but this warning should apply to most.

This model of the Clapper is only rated for a MAXIMUM of 200 Watts per outlet. If you try to control a lamp with three 100 watt bulbs, it is going to overheat or maybe burn up. If you use it with a halogen floor lamp, they only come with 300 or 500 watt bulbs. So pay attention to the bulbs in the lamp you want to control. Since it has a 200 watt rating per outlet, controlling a lamp with a 100 watt bulb shouldn't even make the unit work hard. If you want to control MORE light, then use another 100 Watt bulb lamp plugged into the second outlet. Also remember, incandescent bulbs only. Halogens draw too much current period and it doesn't work with fluorescents. There MIGHT be some of the new energy saver CFL (curly fry shape) fluorescents that will work, but I'd think that they'd have to be marked on the package as "dimmable".

If one reads AND follows the instructions, it is almost impossible to accidentally trigger the device. There's a six year old review from a young lady who griped about all the accidental triggering but I feel that it is an unfair review as I don't think that she read or understood the instructions.

The "sucker" has a dial to adjust the sensitivity (sound sensitivity dial). For those like her who don't have a clue, it allows you to set it so that it ignores dropped remotes and loud TVs. I had one of these years ago and was able to set it where it ignored everything but loud claps in the proper sequence. I recently bought another for my 84 year-old mother-in-law who being almost deaf, always has her TV cranked to full volume.

This little device was more of an irritation to me that I finally unplugged the sucker. I pluged a lamp that I have in my bedroom to the clapper and it would turn on and off at the slightest noise! If I dropped the remote on the floor, it would go on/off. If my TV made a loud noise, it would turn on/off. If I was talking on the phone, it would turn on/off. I used to joke that I had a strobe light in my bedroom, but it got too much for me to handle that I had to finally unplug it. It didn't come with a sensitivity switch and was VERY sensitive to sound, so in short, don't buy it unless you plan to live in silence.

I bought a Clapper for my daughter for Christmas. Not only was it difficult to get it to work but two weeks later it started to smoke! I don't even want to think about what could have happened if I hadn't been there! The Clapper is a piece of junk and a fire hazard! I would NOT recommend this product for anybody unless you want to burn your house down!

My adult daughter is handicapped from an automobile accident and can not get up to turn on or off the lights. So, if no one was with her as it got dark she had to sit there in the dark until someone came. I gave her the clapper and it worked great for her. The amazing thing is, she has no fine motor skills and can not clap hard enough, so she just yells at it and it works!! She yells "On" and the lights respond and come on and yells "Off" and they go off. It has given me peace of mind and been a great comfort to us knowing that she can control the lights. The first one finally wore out, now I am buying another one.

I loved the idea of the Clapper. I live alone so the clapping sound wouldn't bother me and I looked forward to the convenience factor. My first Clapper lasted about 4 months and then mysteriously stopped working, but the dead unit did smell suspiciously funny - like an electrical short.

Did I learn my lesson? Oh, no! I went ahead and purchased another Clapper some months later. The night before last, the lamp I connected this one to started blinking. I checked the lightbulb and it was OK. It was only went I got down close to the Clapper plugged into the outlet that I heard the dreaded sizzling sound and saw a flash of electricity. Once again the Clapper crapped out, this time in a different lamp, different outlet. Will I never learn?

Thank goodness nothing happened due to the highjinks of this faulty device. Can you say "housefire"? Again, how dumb am I? Is the unit UL-approved and, if so, have any other complaints been lodged about it? How does one find this out?

I like my gadgets, but "buyer beware" on this one.

After reading the reviews here I decided to order a Clapper anyway, for a floor lamp with a hard-to-reach switch. Like others, we found that the lamp kept spontaneously turning on and off. So we lowered the sensitivity and the Clapper began working perfectly. For a while. When winter came I bought a small stack of firewood that I placed a few inches in front of the Clapper in our living room. The Clapper seems to be sensitive to having objects placed in front of it -- the firewood created something of an echo effect that the Clapper is very sensitive to, and we can't adjust the sensitivity of the thing to keep it from turning on and off by itself at the very softest noise. So alas, I had to unplug the Clapper. But it had worked perfectly well up until then.
