Product Review – AVANTEK Wireless Remote Control Timing Function


#RCOutlet – AVANTEK Wireless Remote Control Timing Function available at http://amzn.to/1QRWZsi

I have been using this wireless switch sockets for few days in my office room so I can control the light individually without getting up. It work flawlessly. I can now selectively turn on light around my room to save power. It is also great because I don’t have to fumble around for a light at night. I just keep the remote near my bed.
The remote works well. The buttons provide good feedback, and there is a small light at the top to indicate that you’re pressing the button. When the units turn on, they make a slight, audible click.
There are only two things I dislike about this wireless socket. First, if you plug the socket into a switched outlet, it forgets it’s last setting. For example: when I turn the light on with the remote, then I turn the wall outlet switch off. You might expect that if I switched the wall outlet on, the light would come on. Unfortunately, it defaults to off. The only other downside is that it is positively gigantic. I will upload pictures that will try.to demonstrate the size of these sockets. I expected them to be big, but I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw how big they actually are. This isn’t a deal breaker, and it doesn’t affect me much. It doesn’t allow much room for other items to plug in. I have only found one lamp that has a plug small enough to fit beneath this socket without unplugging it too much. It is impossible to securely plug both this socket, and another cord into the same outlet. If you are thinking about putting this thing behind any furniture, think again. With the plug sticking out of this socket, it is virtually impossible to fit it behind anything. You could always attach it to a grounded extension cord. It probably says not to do that, but I’m sure it would be fine if the cord was strong enough. It would allow it to be stashed in less noticeable places. Also, the range is unbelievable. I can turn my lights on from anywhere in my house. It can go through literally anything. Short of taking the remote outside, I can’t find anywhere that it doesn’t reach.
These sockets may be huge, but I couldn’t ask for them to function any better. They also feel like they’re actually full of something, so it’s not just a cheap design. If function is more important than fashion, this is the socket for you. If looks are at the top of your list, I would encourage you to reconsider. For the price, I couldn’t ask for much more. I will upload some pictures of this socket to put its size into perspective. I will also update this review if anything changes. It has served me well. As of now, I would highly recommend this wireless socket for anyone looking for wireless socket switches.

The work great, but they are immense!
