Well, Home Depot did it's part in usual fashion, fast safe shipping. Unfortunately the product did not work at all. Returned the product to the store for a refund.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by wizbang2fl What can I say it's Westek
This item lives up to this brand's standard. Westek makes a lot of the very cheap christmas light controls that are all around during holidays. They are also designed with a minimal load potential, so with that in mind so after about 2 to 4 months of use they die. I think the point of view is that they will have ran out their warranty period or store return period. If you want a longer term solution and not a short term holiday solution look to a more reputable brand.

I had bought several of these units. However, the one that I received the last time did not work. I was please that I could take it to my local HD and get a refund. This unit generally is a good product. However, on this order I got a bad one.

About 9 months in, the receiver (at the plug) has failed. The batter in the transmitter is fine. The unit just plain died.
Piece of junk

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PICTURELADY good idea, lousy product
I wanted to be able to turn on my outdoor light when I came home instead of leaving it on all day and wasting power. First, I needed two remote transmitters, but it only comes with one, so I had to purchase 2 packages. The job required some re-wiring to place an outlet by the light and a plug on the light wires--see photo. It worked great--could turn on the light from my car, then turn it off with the other remote when I got in the house. But in just 6 months one remote transmitter quit working.(A year later, which was yesterday, I got it out to try to figure out what is wrong, and the battery is still strong but the remote won't work.) Also, eventually the plug-in receiver quit working, so I had to use the spare one. Now that is a shoddy product, and I would not buy one again....even though I like what the product does. I've attached a photo so you can see the set-up in case you want to take a chance on this yourself.

Set up and worked great for about a year. Then failed. The plug in unit failed. Battery in the sender OK, tried a replacement. So now trash. Need to find better quality replacement.

I have purchase a few of these, and it seems that after about 2-3 months, they just stop working? Its incredibly aggravating. I am looking for another brand. I like the functionality, I just don't like the quality.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Option7 Didn't last long
Used with a 15watt CFL backlight for our bedroom TV. Worked fine for about 7 months with very limited use before the main unit failed. It stopped working once before but I was able to get it working again after I unplugged it and then plugged it back in. Now it is completely dead. I bought it about 18 months ago but didn't use it until it was almost a year old so it failed after the warranty expired. I wouldn't buy another AmerTac or Westek product. Too bad since it worked well while it lasted.
