"They work well. My only minor gripe is that the manual on-off button on the sockets is a little awkward, being positioned at the left side towards the back. A button on the front would have been easier. Still, as they are supposed to be remotely-controlled devices, I can't complain too much :-)"

Review 2 for Remote On/Off Socket Kit w/ Li-Ion Powered Remote Control 13A White
"This product should not be confused with the dimming sockets which are for lighting only. These sockets switches anything up to a full 13 amp load on and off. The kit does exactly what it says and is easy to set up and use. The gloss white finish with silver edges is very attractive and the remote control can be used to control or dim up to 16 lightwave units of different types.
The only problem I had was that it would only work some times. At other times although the light on the remote control was bright it did not seem to communicate with the sockets.Luckily I read the review of the black version by Squonky, and like him I discovered that the non-branded CR2032 battery supplied in the remote control was not supplying a strong enough voltage to operate the transmitter reliably. After fitting a new battery everything works perfectly. Siemens need to take note and supply a better quality of battery.
I can't comment on long term reliability as I've only had the kit a few days."

Review 3 for Remote On/Off Socket Kit w/ Li-Ion Powered Remote Control 13A White
"Having purchase one and returned it as it wouldn't pair, just tried another kit and that's even worse. The second one is now going back and I will try another make. I am a domestic appliance engineer and I read the instructions several times it drove me mad trying to get them to work. When I purchased Siemens I thought I was purchasing quality!!!"
