slowgrinder said: Is this thing UL listed? Don't burn down your house. I have bought some other things from Etekcity that said UL, CSA, ETL, etc. in the listing, but had no stickers on the actual components.
Although they looked OK, I do not believe they were tested by anyone.
Edit- The picture shows ETL, so maybe these are OK

I have had an X10 system for many years and it's never been 100% reliable. Recently, after a storm some outlets no longer respond to X10 signals. I'm tired of trying to debug it. I'm going to buy this. I really don't like the idea of another remote lying around though.

You just get another remote thingy that sets off a buzzer that you stuck to your original remote.

i don't see what's with the name "auto-programmable" part. it's just a switch to my understanding. i've purchased these before; we use them for appliances that always stay on that we don't want to unplug when we're done using like bread machine and rice cooker. we also use for a lamp and stereo, so we don't need to bother with the actual device's power switch [and we can toggle it's power state from a distance].

If you don't have Amazon prime and want this set, here's another link:
Edit: I just noticed these are described as "used" (from eBay / Etekcity)

This should come in handy during the Xmas season to control the indoor Xmas lights.

Normally I can resist but I'm already using a couple of different "remote control outlets" that I find quite handy. having 5 that operate from one remote....well, I had to buy. Then again might as well add a couple small items from my wish list while I was there.
these work pretty well for me. I used them for about a year now. They have randomly turned on 3 times total, but i guess that might be because someone was running a ir scanner? who knows, it only happened 3 times.

No clue what I would use this for....
Can it turn off my Fatwallet account so I don't spend more money?!?!?!?
I use them for controlling the lamps and fan from my bed. Ditto for the guest bedroom. Turn on the living room lights from the outside.

> $19.99 with free shipping on orders $35+
In case it's not clear to anyone else, if you have prime, you don't need $35+ to get the free shipping.

The price dropped to 23.50 before $7 coupon code. Also shipping dropped from $6.49 to $5.49 (no free prime shipping now though).
I called Amazon a few minutes ago and they cancelled my order from yesterday and I placed a new order.

$23.50 - $7 discount + $5.49 S/H (Not eligible for Amazon Prime) = $21.99 is what I'm showing. How do I get free shipping with Prime?

You have to sign-up for prime ($99 per year) on Amazon's site

typo in my post has been fixed (starting price is indeed $23.50).
I have Prime and item is now showing as "Not eligible for Amazon Prime"
