The Three pauses after the second clap are very important. The Clap Detection Lights will only glow when a proper clap is detected.

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.Read more ›
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.
