The switch would be used outside on lanai but the electrical box with switch is around the corner of the house 25' away, RF should work, IR no.

Answer: 
All garage opener use RF, and this does too which is why it has a full 300 - 600 foot range unlike WiFi products, probably at 390 MHz or 319 MHz. Enclose it in a plastic outdoor rated GFCI cover for safety.

Answer: 
Line of sight is not required and it works from relatively far distances, so it is probably RF. I'm able to turn on the lights in my backyard while standing in front of my brick house about 100' away.

I would like clarification on the programming instructions. I'd hate the new remote to open my garage when all I want to do is turn on/off the porch lights (or vice versa). Also, it looks like just one remote comes with this. Are more remotes available for purchase? Item number please! Thanks in advance.

Answer: 
Even you pair, which is sounds like you do not want to do, you can still independently control it from the remote. It's is designed to turn on your overhead garage lights when the garage door opens. I have two 4" LED fixtures ($30-35 at Costco) to light up the garage so this would be a good fit if decide to upgrade it.

The remote has 3 buttons to choose from.

Answer: 
Since each device (opener, light switch, etc.) operates with its own unique "code", which is why you have to put them in learn mode to pair them to the remote, you shouldn't have any problems. The switch comes with one remote fob but it's generic so you can use any Chamberlin compatible remote.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needs improvement As is it's fine, but for me a game changer would be to add Alexa Echo to the mix. Today just about all is changing and Echo is a part of my home. I agree also that it needs to be able to be scheduled from your phone. With these improvements it would be five stars all the way! August 21, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Get compatible with wink echo smartthings I have 4 switchs and the outlet along with the garage door opener with built-in wifi. I like what they do and they work great. BUT they need to work with wink and amazon echo to be relevant in the home automation game. If it's security your concernd with have a waiver or something.. July 23, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Pretty dumb for a smart switch. For a smart switch, this is pretty dumb. I really wanted to love this and for a time I did. I was using these for quite some time before I could get the garage door installed. Once I did I was even less happy with them. It’s depressing that I give them 5 stars on appearance, ease of installation, value and quality but overall rating is so low. First of all it was very easy to setup, didn’t need a neutral wire from what I recall and it’s really great that they come with the keychain remote. That makes it a really great deal. I have 2 switches, each with a single 8.5 watt LED and the lights turn on and off without any issues. I mistakenly thought you could only program them to work with either the remote control or the garage door opener but you can do both. I have each switch setup to work with it’s own button on 4 different remotes as well as to operate with the garage door opener light. I can also turn the lights on or off and see their status using the web interface or the smartphone app on my android phone. One of the big issues is you can’t program these lights to turn on and off on their own at set times like you can do with other switches like these. For over a year users have requested this from Chamberlain but nothing has come of it. Some people have been able to decipher the API and build their own work arounds but it looks like that ability has been removed. It would have made a lot of sense to me to be able to program the lights to come on at dusk and maybe turn off at midnight but if I happen to be coming home very late at night when the lights are off they would come on when I open the garage door. Not an option. The lights will always come on when you open or close the garage door. It could be the middle of the afternoon on a very bright, sunny day and the switches will still turn on. Not very smart. Technically, the lights don’t come on when you open or close the garage door. They come on when the garage door opener lights come on. The garage door opener lights come on when you open or close the garage door and will shut off about 4-5 minutes later. When the lights on the garage door opener turn off, the paired switches will turn off as well. The problem is that since the lights turn on with the garage door lights, if you’re in your garage working on something with the door closed, you might turn on the garage door opener lights via the control panel on the wall inside the garage. When you do that, the paired switches will turn on as well. So let’s say it’s the middle of a saturday and you want to do some work in your garage. Could be working on your car, changing the oil in your lawn mower, doing some woodworking, whatever. You want to keep the garage door closed so you turn on the lights on the garage door opener for extra light. The outside lights will turn on as well and you’ll waste electricity. If you have the switches setup to a button on a remote you can turn them off with the remove and leave the lights in the garage on but that’s annoying. Especially if you can’t see the lights from inside the garage. Since the control panel has a motion sensor on it you could just walk into the garage from another part inside your home, the garage door control panel will sense your presence then turn on the garage door opener lights which will then turn on your exterior lights. The sad thing is these switches are great in so many ways in terms of the actual switch. Where it fails is in the software outside the switch. The capability to have these switches work to their full potential is even there in the API but it’s been turned off. If Chamberlain doesn’t want to write the code to make these switches live up to their potential then they could just open up their API so other people can do the work for them. Would be great if these switches could work with the Wink Hub or IFTTT. I was even trying to write my own simple controller that wouldn’t do any polling. At one point in the day it would check if the lights were off and if they were it would turn them on. Then in the morning if the lights were on, turn them off. Wasn’t able to because the part of the API to control the lights was either disabled or changed without documentation of the changes. These could be so awesome if Chamberlain just let them be.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barely fit, but works great The switch is relatively large in size, plus has lots of wires hanging out the back making it a tight squeeze in a normal switch opening. Once I jammed it in though, it worked great. Keep in mind that it requires about 10 minutes to charge up before the switch will operate the lights (the manual only mentions waiting 10 minutes to program the remote). The remote is fantastic. I am able to operate the lights from over 100 feet away with no issues. June 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chamberlain Remote Light Switch This is a great and very convenient product to have for turning on lights remotely. This works with any MyQ product including Liftmaster systems. I've purchased another remote switch and lamp controller to plus into the wall since. All work flawlessly. December 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just as advertised Easy to instal and works like a charm. I have gone through few remote controlled light switches before finding the perfect one! This one October 2, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Does not work with Chamberlain Liftmaster I purchased this hoping that it would "synch" with the garage door opener light on my Chamberlain Liftmaster garage door opener. That's the impression I got from the product description. Apparently it does synch up with "Chamberlain" door openers, but IT DOES NOT SYNCH WITH CHAMBERLAIN LIFTMASTER. I found this out after contacting Chamberlain. IMO, the product description is misleading and doesn't do what I wanted it to. It'll probably work fine if you have the right garage door opener, so that's why I'm recommending this product despite giving just one star, which is due to my profound disappointment with the product description. February 17, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works Great--Going to Order Another One! Our entire family loves the convenience of the remote light switch. It was so easy to install. I wish it came with more remote controls. I will be ordering another one. The big downside of this product is that it will only control 300 watts. I will need to decrease the recommended size of the lights on either side of the garage so I won't go over the recommended wattage. It would be nice if they offered this product with two, three, etc. remotes because it's nice to have one in each car and also one in the house. April 7, 2015
