Product Description

Item Package Quantity: 1

Product Description

Wireless radio frequency remote controls are the easiest way to add switched outlet convenience without wiring or the need for an electrician; simply plug lamp into the receiver and the receiver into any outlet; a press of the toggle switch turns whatever is plugged into receiver on or off; wall mounted transmitter looks just like a light switch; 240 watts tungsten load, 120 volts; works with incandescent and compact fluorescent bulbs; works up to 100 ft away.
Note:
1. After removing the plastic battery tab, ensure that the battery is securely in the holder prior to closing the wallplate.  Also when replacing the front cover on the toggle switch, make sure that the cover is securely in place.   Also ensure that when the screws are returned to the wallplate, they do not restrict the movement of the toggle switch.
2. When operating the wall switch, you should wait at least 3 seconds after the transmitter has been pressed on or off before it is pressed again.  This allows for the RF signal transmission to be completed. 
3. If you wish to utilize two separate RFK100LC’s to control two separate lights, units with different codes must be used.

From the Manufacturer

The easy way to add switched outlet convenience without any wiring or the need for an electrician. The invisible wireless RF signal travels for a conveniently placed transmitter to a receiver located by the device you want to operate. A press of the transmitter turns on and off whatever light, TV or small appliance you have plugged into the receiver. The AmerTac Wall Mounted Switch and Plug-in Receiver adds convenience and looks like a light switch.

Customer Reviews

I have one that has been installed over a year ago and still working great.

I am not sure what is causing it, but, I decided to purchase another brand and replace this one.

This is a great gadget for when there is no wall switch to turn a light/lamp on.

The only reason I'm not giving this product 5 stars is because of the cheapish styling. It has a one-piece rocker switch/plate cover that looks like it could break easily. However, I've had mine for about 2 years so far and it's still intact.

This unit has three channels, so you can have up to three different sets of these in your home. In my living room, I have two sets, both on the same channel, controlling two lamps across the room from each other. Since they're both on the same channel, either transmitter can turn on or off both lights (kind of like three-way switching for multiple lamps).

The rocker switch makes it seem like you'd press up for on and down for off. However, it's just a toggle switch -- there's no difference between up or down.

Leviton makes a more-attractive switch (although they only sell the almond color here on Amazon). It resembles a regular hard-wired rocker switch commonly found in homes. However, it only has two channels (so you could only have two sets of these in your home), and it's VERY tempermental. It will randomly switch off and sometimes constantly switch off -- very annoying.

I would like to see X10 come out with one of these devices, but their controllers resemble remote controls too much. They need one that looks like a regular wall switch. So why X10? First it can handle 256 channels -- not just two or three. Second, it can integrate with your PC for home automation. Third, it costs about the same as one of these other more-basic models.

This switch works well in my home. However, as another reviewer said, it has only two different frequencies, and the frequency is NOT selectable. When you buy, you must specify either the "A" or "B" frequency switch. The package is labeled such. Don't get two of the same frequency within range of each other! Oh, and the switch and control block do not look like what is pictured. The control block is bigger and the switch (as mentioned in the other review) is a rocker, not a traditional toggle as pictured.

The remote wall switch solved a big problem in my bedroom where the hot plug is on the opposite tiny wall with no room for a light, but the product could not be more cheaply manufactured. They included two plastic screws to secure the faceplate on to the switch backing. I hand screwed the plastic screws in, and both of the screw heads snapped off. This left the base of the screws inside the backing -- so, I cannot just buy new screws.

I would look for another brand if you are looking for a remote wall switch.

We've had 3 of these in our home for close to 20 years and they've never needed replacement. Our house was built with no wall switches in the bedrooms and we were thrilled to find these. They've actually gone down in price since we bought ours. They work perfectly and we've never had a problem.

This switch is the ideal solution to turn difficult lamps on and off. I put the switch on my nightstand, within easy reach of the bed. Then when I am ready to go to sleep, It's no problem to reach and flip the remote wireless switch. No more getting up to turn the lights off.

This is a great gadget for when there is no wall switch to turn a light/lamp on. Before I had to walk in the room in the dark, feel around for the lamp, then the switch to turn it on. Now I can do it as I walk into the room. Great little device.

I was prepared to fish wire inside a wall and hook up a switch for my new accent lights when I heard about this gadget. I bought one and it works better than I had hoped for. It's great!

The system itself works fine. I've bought and used others by this manufacturer and they are without issues.
This product comes in several channels so that, if you buy several units, they will either not interfere with each other, or will allow you to use two switch locations for one outlet. Right now there is no way to specify what channel you want when you order from Amazon. I see, now, that others have had this same issue. Perhaps Amazon will allow that option someday as is done with clothes, e.g. size, color, etc.
If you need this particular device and channel selection is important (like you are going to order several and either do or don't want them to talk to the same outlet) then you should use a brick-and-mortar route. As of this posting, Home Depot and Lowe's both carry this item.
