Where in the battery housed and how do you install the switch?

Is the battery in the socket or is the plate very thick to accommodate the battery? Do the switch attach via two sided tape included, or do I screw something into the wall?

Answer: 
You will need to buy a 9-volt alkaline battery for the wireless switch. In typical use, this battery will last one year. The battery is installed in the switch housing.
Mount the remote switch at the desired location with the two wood screws provided.

Answer: 
You will need to contact customer service about the return. The channel is random, so you would need to specifically ask for a channel other than D if you would like it to work independently.

Answer: 
Yes, but each socket needs to be the same transmission code letter (ie:"C" or "D") in order to be compatible. However, the socket portion is not sold separately, so you would need to purchase 4 complete kits for what you are asking.

Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 15 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Good idea but poor performance! Within a few hours of installation it became intermittent. Work sometimes, then not. Good concept but only if it works reliably. June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by It works My old x10 remote stopped working. This was a reasonably priced replacement. Used it for one of the three ceiling light sockets in a high ceiling loft that all operate off a single switch. Needed to separately control one of the sockets while the other two were on and this works just like the old x10. March 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solves a problem Sure makes it easy to control lighting in an obscure area. January 27, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by works great! This product works great. I was able to put light with switch in both sides of my attic without the price and inconvience of hiring an electrician. I previously had pull cords for lights. The one thing I had difficulty with was that I was sent the same channel for both switches and this would not work from both ends of house. Home Depot was helpful in contacting company and getting me a different channel. There is not an option online to specify different channels when ordering as customer. Switches must be 100' apart in order to work on same frequency. April 10, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Did the trick Replaced a previous hanging light for my elderly parents that had a thumbscrew switch at the fixture. Since a duplicate light was impossible to find, I installed a direct wired light. This unit made it switchable from a convenient location for my parents. The screw-in bulb holder/receiver pushed the light bulb out to be more visible, but a frosted deco bulb did the trick. This unit is designed to work better with upright shaded lamps, but was adapted to work nicely with an open hanging light. January 21, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by not worth the time to order Went through a lot of effort to get the correct frequency to eliminate interference with other rf switch. Installed and it worked twice and then would not turn off. Returned product. October 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Heath-Zenith-Lamp-Socket Product works very well; looking to buy a few more. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This product is great for the hall ceiling light This was a great experience and the man at the store was very nice. The only issue would be that I was charged a separate $1.00 and the price was the next item charged and had to call to find out why. April 15, 2014
