Siemens Basic Remote On/Off Socket Kit with Li-Ion Powered Remote Control
I've been after remote sockets for a while but the ones I'd seen didn't look up to much in terms of quality. I spotted the Siemens ones on Screwfix and took the plunge. Very pleased with the purchase. They are good quality as you would expect from Siemens with the remote being particularly nice. Set up is a doddle - 2 mins max to set up the 3 plugs. There are cheaper options out there but for less than Â£30 I think these are good value - recommended!

remote on/off sockets
very easy to set up and use. Ideal for the xmas tree lights. Can't really comment on reliability as I've only had them for 2 weeks.
Only concern I have is the plug in adaptors have a neon light on them, defeats the object of trying to turn of an appliance to extinguish it's own neon light.

i bought a well known brand , but unfortunately its a no go product .
It doesn't do what it says on the tin !
You will be disappointed with this ,as the instructions do not help in any way .
BEWARE ! you have been warned.

basic but fine
Be careful which version you buy - there are three very similar products
- this one,
- the version with an on/off switch on the socket (61649)
- the dimmable version.
This product has no 'all off' button on the remote , and also lacks an on-off switch on the socket itself, so if the remote is not to hand, you have to take your (eg) lamp out of the socket to turn it on or off.
This product is fine if your device's plug is inaccessible and you will always be using the remote or the wifilink and app to control things.
