Wired outdoor lighting

I'm looking for a product that allows me to control hard-wired lighting in my yard. The switch is located in the unattached garage and I would rather not have to hire an electrician to run a new wired control to the house. Does this product line have something appropriate? I tried a Lutron dimmer switch remote control, but it only worked if I was inside the garage pointing the remote at the wired switch.
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi Mary, Thank you for your question. While the GE 45601 is a remote operated device to remotely control other Z-Wave enabled devices, being how the location is in an unattached structure and the wireless signal will have to content with the construction of the two external walls and any other interference, it is unlikely that it will provide reliable control of that location. This is common with wireless products, as the signal must be strong enough to exit and enter, while also traveling the distance from transmitter to receiver.

I need a remote to control an outside driveway light that is 110 feet away from my house.

I would prefer to not run underground wiring that far, messing up my lawn. Is there a remote that can handle that distance without problems?
Asked by: Anonymous
Hi there Rick and thank you for your question. Rick there is an accessory called Outdoor Module that can be paired with this device.The maximum range for this device with no obstructions is a 100 feet from the remote.However depending on the outside construction of your home it may show different results. Unfortunately there isn't anything ,that i'm aware of ,that can handle a distance you're inuring about, typically distances grater than 100 feet require a hardwired piece of equipment.

Customer Reviews

GE Z-Wave Wireless Lighting Control Advanced Remote, 45601 -DISCONTINUED is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic whole house controller I bought the GE model 45601 "GE Wireless Lighting Control Advanced Remote with LCD" along with a slave controller (so my wife can control the lights also w/o needing to ask for my controller) and several lighting control modules. These Z-wave compatible items are great - I've already set up 6 separate lamps, including 1 fluorescent dimmable lamp. The set-up was easy, as was transferring the control programs I set-up to the 2nd (slave) controller - just program the 45601 controller and then transfer the program to multiple slave controllers so they all do the same things. Excellent product and easy to use.
