Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works good I needed to use the outlet behind my couch to plug in my lamp so that the wire wouldn't show. It is a floor lamp with the on-off switch on the floor which was difficult to reach because it is behind my end table. This did the trick. The only negative is that I couldn't get it to work at first. Finally figured out when I took the remote apart that there was a piece of clear tape behind the battery!!! Other than that, I am happy with it. January 7, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Works at advertised This is a simple remote switch that turns on/off a device connected to an electric outlet. By jumping in between the wall outlet and your device, this unit allows you remotely turn on/off your device. It works fine for my case. I need to sometimes reset my wireless surveillance camera plugged into an outlet from the attic. Only one drawback: the knob controlling 1 of 8 possible devices from the transmitter is hard to turn. Fortunately I don't have to b/c I set up for only 1 device. February 19, 2013

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Wish I could just by a separate wall unit and not second transmitter. November 13, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Has flexability in its use and works as advertised It has an on and off switch vs other products that do the same thing where they have on/off when either button is pushed. I wish that this unit had that same feature. April 23, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Makes turning on and off a snap I wanted something to turn on and off the lights and appliances in the house. It works great I do not have to go all the way around the room to turn on a night lite or a small watage bulb to see and I do not have to leave things on. October 17, 2012
