Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by tinychefeats Does the job
I bought this switch for the remote feature, not the dimmer. I recently moved into a new apartment with an awkwardly located switch in the foyer. With this switch installed, I use the remote to control the light while covering the original switch location with a painting.
The switch itself works really well. But the remote isn't great. I frequently have to press the buttons really hard to get a response. This is annoying when I'm trying to run out the door or am coming home with a lot of bags.
I don't use the dimmer function so I can't speak to that.
I'm using this with 4 recessed halogen lights. So far no problems there.

I used the product to create a 'remote' controlled FX for a theater. There were some issues using the IR beyond about 25'

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DB0000001 Neat wireless switch, handy when switches are not exactly where you would like them.
A little pricey but worth the cost for me. The switch functions well with the remote and the wall switch itself. It has a good "view" of the remote too. I use the remote at almost 180 degrees, but, it will see the remote at about 102 degrees or so. The remote beam does bounce off things like glass and "clicks" when I point it at a window or glass bookshelf door. I needed this because the switch for the lights over my desk is over and behind the desk and just about 1 inch further than my arm can reach! Ha! the remote works nicely with full on and full off buttons and a dimmer. The remote is big enough for my large hands to operate and not drop but tiny enough not to take up much room. The off button is really "high visibility" so you can hit it without much effort.

The brightness level is set using the vertical toggle (right of the center on/off switch), and is indicated by a single glowing LED (left of the on/off switch) or, when the light is on, by the brighter of the 7 glowing LEDs. Touch the on/off switch anywhere, and the light will come on to the brightness last set by the toggle; touch it twice quickly, and the light brightens fully, regardless of the brightness setting, which persists until reset using the toggle. The LEDs are not distracting at night, yet still visible during the day. Perfectly suited to its intended purpose, with an equally suited remote, the signal from which is picked up by the horizontal rectangular window near the bottom of the on/off switch.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ricko360 This product is great. I love the fact that I don't have to get up to turn the lights off.
I love the fact that I don't have to get out of bed to turn off the lights. Installation was easy and quick. I also love the fact that it has a personal setting mode which enables me to have the light setting just where I want it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by magillus One broke after a year, there was loud pop and it stopped working
I have 2 IR switches and one broke. One day it I hear pop (similar to breaker disabled) and light goes down. It was powering 4 LED 23W recessed lights at that time.
Other one I have is installed 3 years now and no issues.

Once I get into bed to read or watch TV, It spoils the mood of being relax when I have to get up to turn off the lights. I now wonder why I didn't replace the old light switches sooner.

This switch is pretty cool. Easily programmed to my logitech universal remote. I have LED can lights and I was lucky enough that this switch dims them. Every once and a while the lights flicker a little bit which is annoying. Overall I am very pleased though.
