Answer: 
The clapper worked with sound. This unit will turn the lamp (has to have metal) to a touch on off. Just plug the lamp into the control and then plug the control into the socket. Make sure the lamp switch is in the "on" position. Then touch the metal part of the lamp once for on, and again for off. *NOTE only works with Incandescent bulbs*

Answer: 
worked with 3 of my 4 LED lamps.
Any bulb you use with this unit will work fine as long as the bulb is compatible with dimmers. For other people who may be wondering, most CFL bulbs won't work with it unless the bulbs says it will.
This module has 3 levels of brightness.
Touch once for dim, again for medium, again for full brightness, and again to turn it off.

Rated 3.1 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Problem solved! This is terrific! We used it on a metal bedside lamp and a metal hanging lamp. The bedside lamp has a dim and bright setting, so I worried it would not work. But I just put it on the higher setting and it works perfectly. Love it! August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by No problems. I bought 2 of these a couple of years ago and haven't had any issues. This unit has 3 levels of brightness and off. This is good and bad. I'd rather have a unit with just on and off, or maybe 2 levels of brightness. Who wants to tap repeatedly all of the time just to turn on a light? You get used to it and you get good at it, but I'm disappointed that nobody seems to manufacture an on/off touch module. Notes: I am using modern LED light bulbs. Some LED light bulbs don't work with dimmers. But 3 of 4 LED light bulbs I tried work great with this. I haven't had any of the issues others mentioned. Some of them obviously are using the wrong kind of light bulbs. Most CFL bulbs will NOT work with dimmers, and therefore, won't work with this unit unless the bulb specifically says "works with dimmers". One person mentioned these units get damaged if the light bulb burns out. I don't know if that's true but that would make LED bulbs a wise choice for use with this, since they last like 22 years.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nice, but not durable We have had several of these over the years. They are nice when they work, but as stated, we have had SEVERAL of them because they don't last (the saving grace is that they are not too expensive and the convenience outweighs the cost at this point). The only other issue is that during electrical storms, the lights will turn themselves on and off. December 28, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unhappy !! Product was delivered in a timely manner. I followed the instructions for using the product, and it initially worked great. Unfortunately, it burned out within one week of installation. January 5, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Returned Product The light bulb was always dimly lit and flickered even when off. It also made a little buzzing noise. August 18, 2015
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not a dimmer Contrary to product title the product received is not a dimmer. It also appears to be no different than item #6004BC. This is the most recent of several we've purchased. They work great until the bulb gives out which usually kills the touch switch. Why do I keep buying them? I haven't found a better alternative besides, my wife likes the lamp and it has no provisions for a normal switch. Enough said, I think. ;-) May 13, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by not working right We were excited to learn about this little plug-in light control. Our antique floor lamp doesn't have a light switch, so we were trying to avoid constantly plugging and unplugging the cord to/from the outlet. The delivery wasn't very fast, took more than a week. When the unit arrived, it worked straight out of the box and everything seemed to be OK. but several hours later the light started to turn off and on but itself at random intervals. Two mornings later I found the light on - it turned on by itself at night. That's not good. This is when it's very nice to have a local HomeDepot store - the return was easy and quick. I have no problems with HomeDepot, but this product did not work for us. December 11, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works for me! Reviews weren't good but it works for me so far after weeks of use. Just touch lamp gently. Have it plugged into a multi-plug wall outlet to an older brass floor lamp whose on/off switch was a tiny awkward brass knob to turn. Makes it so easy. Love it! Will order a few more.
