For me it has worked perfectly every time. If there where anything I would change it would be the remote. The remote is flat black and the buttons are flat black. Even the "On" "Off" labels under the buttons are the same flat black. If I were making the remote the "On" "Off" labels would be a reflective White or Gold. The "On" "Off" buttons themselves would each be a different color. I know thats not much of a criticism but when the phone is ringing and you need to turn everything off it would be nice if the correct button was completely obvious.
So, our solution was to buy one of these remote electrical switches for each door. When we leave, we close the door and turn off the power with the remote control switch. When at home, we flip the "vacation lock" switch on the wall control unit which prevents the doors from opening. Not all garage door wall switches have "vacation locks". If our units did not have "vacation locks", we could simply shut the power off with the remote power switches (when at home.)
- this is real outdoor unit, just follow installation instruction properly to avoid water damage (water loop)
- it is powerful enough for most appliances (960 Watts)
- it has four adjustable frequency channels
- 150 ft range
- standard 12V battery for remote
Why four stars?
It does not have "on" light and not all people use this unit for Christmas lights.
It seems that unit is not UL Listed (OK for Christmas lights)
THIS IS NOT THE SAME PRODUCT. The originals were each the Carlon model HW2190 Heavy Duty Remote Control. The specs of the Westek do not appear as good as the Carlon. The Carlon is an extremely reliable device and will work up to 150 ft away. From reading the reviews, the Westek may be a lower quality unit with much shorter range. The two look different as well.
If Amazon is putting the reviews of the Carlon and Westek items together it could explain the wide variation of ratings. I cannot give a high rating here although I would easily rate the Carlon at 5 stars. If you can find the Carlon, buy it. I won't risk reordering from Amazon although it would be interesting to test the two units side-by-side.
So, I scanned it with my IR heat sensor pistol. Only a couple of degrees above room temperature.
I use this device to shut down my power-wasting home-entertainment center.
The TV & cablebox etc use about 40 watts when in standby. And that's 70% of the time.
The cablebox has to re-boot each afternoon, but that's not a real problem
with a little planing.
No problem with the RF remote. Works better than IR remotes. No need to point it,
or even be in the same room.
The hw2190 has very high power handling capability for the price. Over all, it's a good product.
NOTE: I worked on electronics systems on military aircraft and I also have an Engineering degree --- I wouldn't advise you try what I did unless you know what you're doing!

JUNK!!!! I bought this item as an open box. The light on the remote lit up when I pressed the buttons, but it wouldn't send a signal to the receiver. Read morePublished 3 days ago by Adam Gotsens

A bit bulkier than my last one, but great product just the same. Makes it so convenient to turn on my vacuum from across the room, without having to walk back and fourth.Published 4 days ago by Franklin Smith
Very useful for those items that you have to plug in away from the area needed. I like the remote to turn on/off.Published 14 days ago by Amanda Dyer
