  lol, that is my thought process on so many threads.  My wallet is getting less and less fat all the time. 

Buy now, figure out why later.

Remote switches like these are great for elderly folks.

I use these for my christmas lights, works great.

Is this thing UL listed? Don't burn down your house.

It is ETL listed, ETL is a nationally recognized safety designation competing with UL.

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 these and love them.

  I second that.

  Do they make any sound when switched on or off ? (relay clicking ?)

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.

looks like a useful device
 
yes, but then where did i put the remote?

 (i have too many remotes already)

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

  hahahahahaha I'm in too....I am with you...since I found this site....been spending crazy!!!

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:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-Pack-Wireless-2Remotes-Control-Power-O... 

You also get 2 remotes this way

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.

does coupon code still works "OFF9938U"?

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.

onlyvimal said:   does coupon code still works "OFF9938U "?
  yes

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.

Maybe I should buy this for my children. Where would I buy this?

  Click the link in the first post

Do I need this? No
Did I buy this? Yes

No wonder I'm getting a bit wider...... and my wallet a bit thinner....
Thanks OP and FW

> $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.

Update:

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?

  I see $23.50 (July 30 @ 6pm EST) not $21.99

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"

  You're right. Looks like they dropped the free shipping with prime. With shipping now, it's 2 bucks more than with free prime shipping before.

Specifications
Power input/output: 120V/60Hz, max. 1200W 10A
Low power consumption: 1.8w


Yeah, kind of good & suck...
They should make it for 110/220 V.
