Product Description

Say bye-bye standby with this energy saving remote control set from Brennenstuhl, the market leaders in electronic technology. The set includes 3 receiver sockets which can be plugged into any mains socket and then the electrical appliance is then plugged into the receiver. This then allows the electrical appliance to be switched on/off quickly and easily using the included remote up to a distance of 25m to prevent them from being left on standby, especially useful if the mains switch is particularly difficult to reach (i.e for operating lamps). In addition, all receiver sockets are childproof for additional safety and to give you extra piece of mind that Brennenstuhl is a brand that can be relied on. With decades of experience in the market, you can be assured that you will be provided with a superior quality product that will help you to cut your energy consumption and costs. An extremely useful tool in a world of rising energy prices!

First impressions are good. The receivers are a little bulky, about the size of a nightlight, but feel very solid and hold the piggybacking plug tightly.

The handset and receivers are paired by setting matching patterns on a row of five switches, which will allow multiple sets of handsets and receivers to be used without interfering with each other.

As they use radio rather than infrared, you don't need a clear line of sight for them to work.

Specification was lacking from Amazon page at the time of purchase. Power handling capacity is 1kW max. Insertion of 13 amp plug / device does require some force, as one reviewer states; this is not a problem with the safety shutter, it appears the plug pins are just a very tight fit. Set-up, which uses recessed circuit board switches, is fairly straightforward, only requiring a small screwdriver, metal nail file etc. Good instruction book. Remote control works throughout house without any problem. Remote controller and controlled sockets appear mechanically substantial. Electronics in the remote controller are built on a substantial printed circuit board. Uses a miniature 12V battery (A23) to power the controller - this is not as widely stocked as, say AA, but is not difficult to obtain.

I bought these on the strength of T Griffin's review & I thank him for it. The Brennenstuhl sockets are very well made, with a nice transmitter. They are also quite compact, compared with my previous remote-controlled sockets. The transmission range is also good: I can operate the sockets from anywhere in my house. A nice touch is the red indicator that lets you know that the socket has turned on. Some other brands don't have this feature, which is a pity as it's quite useful.

Setting up the sockets is fairly easy, but some people may not agree with this. To set them up, you have to arrange a row of dip-switches on the remote, then remove the covers on each socket & set them up individually. As I am used to setting up electronics, it was easy for me, but I envisage that inexperienced people could struggle for a while. You also need some small Jeweller's screwdrivers (or similar) to facilitate set-up.

It would help if Brannenstuhl supplied the sockets with the most popular setting already programmed in, then they would work sraight from the box. Another point that Brannenstuhl should look at is the 13 Amp socket. With a name like Brannenstuhl, you may guess that these sockets originate outside Britain. When you plug in an appliance, this becomes more obvious, as you really have to apply pressure to get the plug home. This seems to be a slight design flaw, as the UK earth pin is supposed to open the Line & Neutral shutters for smooth access, & this doesn't fully happen with the Brannenstuhl sockets. It isn't a major snag. but, if you purchase these sockets, you should be aware of it.

In summary, these are the best remote sockets I have used to date, & I have reviewed three types for Amazon. Just bear in mind the (very minor) problems. If Brannenstuhl sort these out, they are easily worth 5 stars

These remote control sockets work really well. They give a nice reassuring clicking sound from the energy saving socket themselves when you turn them on and off - helps to acknowledge they are on/off when they are out of sight. They also have a red LED light so you can see when they are switched on. Only downside is the need to unscrew (with a very small philips screw driver) a small cover on the back of the energy saving socket to give access to set-up the receiver code number - why didn't they make it like a normal clip on/off type cover (like you would have for a battery compartment) I don't know. They are German made so I'm confident they will be reliable - if I can help it I always buy German - white goods, cars etc - they never seem to break down. The remote is well made too, solid and the sockets always seem to respond well to the remote control commands. Like has been said - it as an RF remote control so works when out of sight form the sockets, through walls/ceilings etc. All for less than £20 - bargain.

These remote controls have the advantage that they use radio waves rather than infra-red and so don't need an unobstructed line of sight to work. This suits me, as I wanted to have two of the receivers behind my television set. After setting up (see below) the system works fine and I can control three appliances without having the crawl behind my TV.

There's a good instruction booklet that takes you through the slightly complicated setting-up procedure. First you set a code behind a panel on the transmitter hand-set using series of tiny, numbered dip switches (you'll need your specs if long-sighted!) and set the same code on each of the receivers. To get at the dip switches on the receivers you unscrew small panels on the back of the receivers (you need a tiny cross-headed PH0 Phillips screw-driver) and click the dip-switches to match the transmitter. And, when you've got the back panels off you choose one of the dip switches labelled A, B, C or D to marry up with the same letter on the button on the transmitter.

When you get the system all five numbered dip-switches are in the ON position in all the receivers and on the transmitter, so, unless you have two transmitters you can leave them in the factory settings, but you will need to open up the receivers to set the dip switches with letters to link each receiver to the appropriate letter on the transmitter. It sounds more complicated than it is the case in practice.

The receivers are solidly made and hold the plugs of the appliances firmly. As you can see from the picture of the product the receiver is quite big with the receiving part above the plug socket: this has the advantage that if you have deep skirting boards or your sockets are just above the skirting board or work-top the receiver will fit. I've had a problem with multi-sockets, that have the row of sockets below the plug connecting to the mains, being hindered by a deep skirting board.
