Great for the mobility impaired, and anyone who just wants a one-touch, convenient way to turn on and off appliances, the Woods 13568 Remote Converter Kit includes a wireless transmitter for fast, easy control of different appliances, lighting fixtures, and more. With this handy kit, you can operate up to three different home appliances from across the room--or across the house--using one remote control.

Wireless Signal Extends up to 40 Feet
The signal from the remote control travels through walls and other obstacles and extends up to 40 feet, making it a snap to control appliances in different areas of your home with a single click.

This system includes three separate receivers for the wireless operation of three different appliances at once. Use in one room or multiple locations to control holiday decorations, ceiling fans, porch or garage lights, indoor lamps, and more.

Fast, Tool-Free Setup
Designed to be user friendly, the 13568 sets up easily without tools and guides you through the installation process. When first plugged in, the red ON light blinks, which means that you can program the unit just by pressing the ON button. If you remove the unit and move it to a new location, simply repeat this easy procedure.

I put the two defects in one package and returned it.
Feedback
The 3 receivers seem to work but not all of the buttons on the remote work so I can only control 2 of the 3 units.
Jason Torchio
Overall the product is very easy to use and works well.

This isn't a reflection on Amazon, or Target where I purchased this product. I bought 2 sets at the end of 2008. Each package had a non-functioning receiver. I put the two defects in one package and returned it. The set I kept and used worked to specification until a few months ago. The transmitter 1 On button (most used button, for bedroom floor lamp) began to fail, requiring several presses to operate and today it quit working entirely. I'd already researched Woods Wire/Coleman Cable and realized I wasn't going to get far with any warranty request. I disassembled the remote and confirmed a bad switch with a multimeter. I opened the defective switch (destructive, no reassembling it) and observed some material transfer from the center contact to the switch 'dome' contact that may have been preventing current flow. I unsoldered the switch and replaced it with a switch from an answering machine keypad. It worked better than new because the replacement switch was better quality to start with. Two other switches on the remote were intermittently displaying a weak LED, they were failing also. I replaced all six switches and the remote works better than new, the crisp click of the replacement switches provides better tactile feedback and they work every time. I understand mass production and low cost products to meet competitive price points but it's unfortunate that the manufacturer didn't spend another 50 cents and assemble a reliable product that could last more than a year. Perhaps the newest units are 'upgraded' and my experience is not typical. From a use perspective, I love having a single remote on my nightstand to control 2 lamps and the rear surround wireless receiver for a Samsung theater without getting up. From a quality/durability perspective, you may want to look for competitive products.

Although I just opened the package and set up my system today - controlling three pieces of electronics gear - I thought I'd clarify at least one recommendation on the package that is repeated on the instructions inside.

The statement on the package says "To improve performance, it is recommended that remote outlets be positioned at least 8.5 feet apart." That was a surprise to read and would have been a deal breaker for me. Fortunately, in my experience, they work fine at closer distance. I have the three receivers all clustered together and there is no interference among them. Everything works fine. Perhaps that's why Amazon chose not to mention the recommendation on its web page.

Incidentally, the receivers/outlets are bigger than I expected. They measure 4 3/8 in.long x 2 1/2 in.wide x 2 in. deep.

Purchased this item and Woods 32555. Use it to control lights in the house plus garage and it has performed as advertised. Have not tested a max distance for control but as of now, I can turn on the bedroom lights at a distance of about 60 feet through no less than 5 walls and the garage from about 80 feet by line of sight. When first plugged in, the red ON light blinks and you will need to program the unit just by pressing the appropriate ON button 1, 2 or 3 depending on which unit you have plugged in (I marked each unit to correspond with the appropriate on and off buttons). If you remove it and move to a new location, this procedure needs to be repeated. Make sure the item you want to control does not exceed the voltage and wattage rating of the unit. This item is rated at 15 Amp max, 1875 resistive 5A, 625W Tungsten 3/4 HP. If you need a unit with higher capacity, take a look at the Woods 32555 however it is a single control unit only.

Don't have much time to do this review.....but the nitty-gritty is:

1) One of the 3 plug-in units was fine
2) Two of them were defective
3) Both defective units "rattled" when turned over, moved around in my hand
4) I had to see why.....the quality of the "insides" is just plain scary
5) I'm really not an "alarmist," but to be honest, for safety reasons, I would absolutely avoid this product.
6) One of the defective plug-ins had a "BLACK-wire" screw that fallen-out inside the casing.
7) The other one--both wire-holding-screws had fallen out (BUT THE CURRENT-CARRYING WIRES WERE STILL SURPRISINGLY TOUCHING THEIR RESPECTIVE PLATES).
8) I would consider these a dangerous "spark-->fire" hazard.....and I'm surprised (and glad) that no one has had a serious issue with these (at least so far).

I'm going to order another set of the "cheaper ones" also available on Amazon.

Sorry Woods....but, dang.....if you can't figure out a way to secure the electrical wires that will withstand "shipping"....you shouldn't be making these at all. And Woods, please feel free to call me if you'd like to speak to me in person about this...I give Amazon my permission to divulge my home number to you.

Amazon...you might be wise to have someone take a direct look at this product...to make sure you're comfortable selling it.

IF SOMEONE PURCHASES THIS....UPON ARRIVAL....JUST GENTLY SHAKE OR "ROCK" THE PACKAGE BACK-AND-FORTH....IF YOU HEAR ANY RATTLING.....SEND IT BACK!!!
JUST BE CAREFUL WITH THIS ONE.
