5.0 out of 5 stars Remote Power Socket
Bought this socket to switch off electrical goods overnight. The electric point is located in a awkward position and difficult to switch off. The remote socket works great you switch can it on and off from anywhere in the room also it is priced really cheap so bargain to solve the problem.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unreliable
When these work they're great, but they keep un-pairing. Every few weeks I have to crawl under tables to get to the socket and pair up the remote with the socket again, it's incredibly irritating. I'd buy another make, but avoid Bye Bye Standby as they are even worse. On returning the item to the seller, they refused to pay for shipping and didn't apologise for selling me...

I'd buy another make, but avoid Bye Bye Standby as they are even worse. On returning the item to the seller, they refused to pay for shipping and didn't apologise for selling me a dud product. I strongly advise people look at LightwaveRF (Siemens) products instead as they seem to be much more reliable than these and Bye Bye Standby.

1.0 out of 5 stars Quite Simply does not work., 20 Aug 2013

This review is from: Status SREMSOC1PK3 Remote Control Socket (DIY & Tools)
Very poor quality and terrible service from vendor impact computers. They want me to return a dud at my expense.Money down the drain. I think it is simply a 50/50 chance that the one they send you is a working set. Would look to better quality and certainly a better seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the box, 10 Jan 2013

Installed in the garage to allow me to turn off a socket output. I have "line of sight" to the unit from the house, albeit through a window in the house and the concrete wall of the garage. It works each time, although you have to point it accurately at the location in the garage where the socket is. I have used it so far to control some Xmas lights on bushes in the back garden.

Excellent product. Does the job for which I bought it, i.e., to turn the TV and Sky box off overnight as the sockets are right behind a heavy piece of furniture.
