Rated 5 out of 5Â by kellscrafts329 Love this product
I have had my 2 westek light switches for over 3 years or so and I love them. No maintenance needed, just set up and its all good. Simple to set up and use. Just make sure you don't choose multiple channel codes or when you go to use the switch you'll notice it working for more than 1 room at a time and unless you are looking to do that it can be annoying, especially when the person in the second room doesn't have the same sleeping schedule as you do.
Great for homes with no light switches and a home with table and/or floor lamps. This has worked great for my son's room and my room and now I am looking to get another switch for my baby's room.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by RobertS Simple to Install. Check Frequencies Before Buying
Simple to install. I use two transmitters (on the same frequency) to control the light in my garage from either the garage door or kitchen in the house, 40+ feet away. I have another system, on a different frequency for my living room, and after 18 months am still very pleased. Just one complaint: The switch I use several times a day to control the living room lights had its cover break. The rocker switch is held in by two thin plastic arms, and they broke just now, after 18 months. I'm trying to find a replacement for the switch cover without having to buy a new transmitter. For now, I am directly pushing the buttons on the circuit board to control the lights, and that works fine, but isn't finished or attractive looking. In all, I will buy again, and can recommend this to all my old friends. It is 'way cheaper than putting in wires. Be sure to get two sets for the same frequency if you want to use two switches to control one outlet, or to use one switch to control two outlets. Get different frequencies if you don't want one switch to control all outlets. I wish they sold transmitters (switches) and receivers (outlets) separately.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Robert Best Remote Switch Ever!
A quick and easy way to install a remote switch. Perfect for places where you can't or don't want to run wiring. I replaced a small, hard to find, push button switch on a led light fixture in a cabinet with this unit. the thin switch is mounted on the inside of the door and is convenient, easy for anyone to see and operate when the door is open. I'll install others around my home. I hope the "next generation" of this product offers dimmer capabilities.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bgnoz Working perfectly for me
We're renting a house with a living room that has no ceiling light, but instead a switched outlet. Problem is that outlet is in a strange place (right in a walkway). And we wanted two lamps on the other side of the room to go on with either of two switches. I've wired that a couple of times before, but only on my own house, where I could cut and repair drywall for access and run wires through the the walls. Since this is a rental, we looked for a way to do this without running wire.
This device was a perfect solution. We bought two units with the same frequency (E) and set them up at opposing doors. There's probably 15-20 feet from either switch to both lights, and 30 feet between the switches (it's a big living room). Everything works perfectly so far... we just used small squares of 3M industrial double-stick tape on each corner of the switches (even though they provide screws) and it took minimal time to get both lights working with both switches. Minimal time meaning about 15 minutes, including the time spent opening packages and reading instructions. Pretty cool.
The battery is one of those small cylindrical types that is common for cameras and remote switches. It comes with a battery, so don't buy one until you need a replacement.
All in all, seems like a good value, and seems to be working well. It's a radio frequency device, so there may be disruptions from cell phones, remote controls, microwaves, etc. I'll update the review if we run into glitches, but so far no problems!
