just the ticket

"This Siemans remote on/off switch is brilliant. I have my electric rise and recline chair and two TV's working off the three 13 amp sockets. Good quality. Good price. Would have been magic if the remote had been capable of indicating the socket setting ie two way switching indication as i cannot see the socket light from my chair. This little kit has made an enormous difference to my life. Highly recommended."

Excellent Product
14 Jan 2014

"Simple but effective. Very useful - especially for re-booting the old Sky box without having to get down to the actual plug socket. I also have a lamp that I can now turn on and off from the luxury of my sofa and the third as yet unused socket will come in very useful at Christmas Tree lights time.
Only 3 * for reliability as I have only just started using them.
Easy to set up and they look very nice.
Very small gripe is that the remote can do 4 sockets - so why provide only 3 in the box ?
Changed the battery in the remote before using as I have read other reviews.

fantastic solution

"just bought 1 standard and two table lamps for the bedroom and don't want to get out of bed to switch them off.
These are the ideal solution. They have a great range too. Just wish I could find out where you could buy an extra adaptor from"

These are not dimmable
3 Oct 2013
By Timb2013

"Despite the title of the product (remote control dimmer kit) these are not dimmers, or at least I can't get them to dim. Pressing and holding the on or off button just turns the socket on or off. Or am I missing something?
Other than that these are well made, good looking products, it is just that they don't match the description."

Well-made, effective product
10 Dec 2012

"I needed a remote socket to control a fan heater and light in my home office/summer house - so that it can also be a 'winter house'. It's great being able to pre-heat the cabin 30mins before I go down there to do some work.
It's about 60' from the house to the cabin, and the transmitter just has the range (about 6' to spare) to operate the remote switch.
One problem - upon getting the items out of the box, I COULD NOT get the transmitter to pair with the receiver. Followed the instructions to the letter, at least 4 times. I suspected the TX battery, but the blue LED on the handset was lighting up nice and bright. I checked the CR2032 battery with a multimeter and it read 3.3V. However, 'on load' (i.e. when holding down a transmitter button) the voltage dropped to 2.85, which it appears isn't enough to operate the transmitter. Fitted a new battery and all is well.
Not what you'd expect with a sealed box, brand new item. I shall be contacting the manufacturer about this. This is the reason for my low rating on reliability. I've only had the product for a few days, so can't comment on long-term reliability.
Features are basic - it's an on/off switch with only one-way communication. Would be much better to know whether the remote socket had received the command and changed over. I have to gaze down the garden and look for the lights coming on in the shed window. Of course, if you're in the same room as the light you're switching on - you have your visual indication right there.
The cosmetic appearance of these sockets is very nice. Piano black gloss finish, very neat, small units. Fancy amber/blue colour-changing LED to show whether the switch is on or off.
Another bonus - the sockets appear to have a good old clicking, electromechanical relay inside, rather than an electronic thyristor/triac switch. This means that they should work with ANY non-inductive load from 0 to 3kW. Many of the adverts for this product say the max load is only 300W, which is wrong. The included instructions say 13A (3kW). It's the dimmer sockets that are only 300W."
