Would not work - probably broken remote control unit,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Status SREMSOC3PK3 Remote Control Socket (DIY & Tools)
These units arrived nice and quickly, so that was an excellent start.
Things went downhill from there.
When I tried the first unit in situ, it was impossible to get the remote control unit to be recognised by the socket. I tried all 3 sockets with the same result. I even tried all of the ON buttons on the remote to see if ANY of them would be recognised. No joy.
The following day I was going to try again with the sockets at different sites in the house (not sure why it would help, but worth a try). The battery in the remote control was dead.
Bought a replacement battery and tried again, thinking that maybe the battery had been too weak. Still unable to program any of the sockets.
The following day - the battery was dead again.
This leads me to believe that the remote control unit is faulty and zapping the batteries quickly and failing to program the sockets.
Going to return them for a refund.
Only reason it gets 2 stars is because delivery was quick.
I notice that another reviewer had a faulty socket, although the other 2 worked. Not very reliable units then?
