Questions & Answers

Asked by Rich November 20, 2020

Yes you can but keep in mind that is the maximum this unit can handle.

is there any type of dimmer for outdoor lights

Asked by gammy April 22, 2020

We love it! Works beautifully to dim out patio lights.

Does it provide a dimmable feature?

Asked by Dave August 3, 2017

As good as this product is, unfortunately it will only turn the lights on and off. No dimming feature. If you are looking for a product for indoor use onlly and need the dimming feature, but the PL-318

I have a steel shed about 125 feet away from my house. Will this unit work ttutorial turn on/off from my house?

Asked by jw65 November 24, 2016

This unit has an operating range of up to 500ft in an open space, so it should work. The only issue is the steel material, will most likely affect the wireless signal. Therefore you should try to have the receiver near a window, or as close as possible to the remote you'll be controlling it with.

Exterior use; mounting and weather issue

Asked by RockWallGuy April 16, 2016

Customer review from logo
I use this receiver with a 10 button remote transmitter. This unit controls my low voltage walk lights between garage and house. Very simple - plug it in, press set on control, press program on remote, select button on remote and you are done. My only issue and hence not 5 stars - The all weather cover that I installed on my outdoor outlet in June 2014, as per the latest Alberta (and I suspect Canadian) Electric Code, wants to enclose the plug and feed the cord through a slot in the bottom. The Plug-in Control unit does not work so well because it has a 90 degree plug. A straight plug is required, so I will have to modify the code before I get another unit to run the Christmas lights. Otherwise, all else is good.

Customer review from logo
This unit works. Unlike many competitors products. The only one I'd buy again is this one. Good distance and fast reaction to the on/off switch. I have had no cold weather problems either. I use it to control a roof de-icer cable and a string of LED's to show if the de-icer is on or off. Works like a charm and I don't need to worry about running the de-icer when it is not needed.
