        Q:How can I specify the frequency / code for my order?
        by|Sep 22, 2021
        5 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Another user here, I dont think there is a good way to verify. I bought two online and banked on the fact that they would be the same. They were. The packaging didnt indicated a frequency.

        by|Oct 15, 2021

          A:  Hello Elbee, thank you for your question. There is no way to specify on the website, but we have a new version that is parable instead of using specific frequencies. Take a look at item 36523 on homedepot.com. You can have as many of these as you want without having to worry about frequency.

            A:  I called home depot customer service who was able to get warehouse to pick the frequency to ship

            by|Sep 24, 2021

              A:  You cannot. I even took the units all back to the store and they couldn't help request specific frequencies.

              by|Oct 5, 2021

                A:  I don't believe that can be done. It is what it is.

                  Hello Ceasar, thank you for your feedback. These are our old models that work frequency A,B,C, or D. Unfortunately there is no way to tell what you going to get when you order them. We do have the new version that uses a new technology and they are paired and don't interfere with each other. Look at model 36523. Your honest feedback is the key to helping us improve our product and future customer experiences. If there is anything we can do to improve your overall experience, we would greatly appreciate the opportunity. Please call us at 1-800-654-8483. We are open Monday-Friday from 7am-8pm CST GETechSupport

                    Added Smart Plug to box for added power options
                    I really liked this at first but I know I wanted another way of turning the light off already being in bed so what I did was added a $10 smart plug into the power box where the light plugs into and this allowed me to turn it on and off w/ Alexa as well as through my phone, however it does take an extra second to turn the light on as opposed to the instant on and off without the smart plug. Works if You rely on lamp type lights but I think there’s better smart products available at similar prices

                      This is such a help for someone who has arthritis. My son got it for me and then I bought it for a neighbor. I ordered online. It was delivered to the store and my son picked it up for me. I highly recommend it.

                      Made life easier. No longer need to walk into a dark room to turn a lamp on =) I wished they sold them in the store instead of just online. More people would buy them. Wished they made one with two switches for the bedroom, one at the door and one for the bed for same light.

                      Works great. Plug the receiver into an outlet, plug the lamp into the receiver and voila! My onnly wish is that the light switch could be mounted directly over an existing wall switch (after removing the existing switch mechanism from the wall) - I replaced an old wall switch that operated an outlet too far from where I wanted the switched outlet to be.

                      I gave it a good and recommended it only because it does what's it supposed to do. I needed a light to turn on upon entering the front door and this made it easy. I was a little skeptical in that I had to leave the light turned on and then for me I had to run an extension cord to the lamp. I see now that a small led comes one when it's activated and that makes me feel a little better. The rocker type switch works in either the top or bottom push. I have not felt the receptacle unit to see if it gets hot while either in off or on position so that might be a concern for some. Distance I was not worried about, in that my switch was going to be within 12 feet. Instructions are showing a 100 foot range. Not much more to it. The one really down side to it is that the switch takes a small half the size of a triple A battery. I would be guessing that the only place that would sell this size of a battery is where you purchased the switch and receiver. I saw no place that stated how long the battery would last, so just on a whim maybe buy a second one. It does come with two small screws to mount the switch, but I used two that are a little bit larger. Sop hope this helps in your decision making about a remote controlled light switch...

                      Replacing an old Handy Switch with this one. The operation of the switch is VERY smooth and seems very durable! I mounted the switch under a kitchen cabinet to turn on the power to 2 spot lights in the ceiling which are connected to an electrical outlet in the ceiling. Does the job perfectly! The switch itself is very slim so you don't see it under the cabinet. I will be buying more since I have a few more places I can use this item! LOVE!!!
