Price dropped to $2.99 in 369 stores see list in post near the end Additional 200 stores have it at $4.99
I used this at Christmas to turn on/off Christmas lights in multiple rooms. Worked well. Some plugs where behind sofas etc making them otherwise hard to reach.
PRIME 3-pack remote control lamp modules allow you to operate up to 3 sets of decorations or lamps from across the room using 1 remote control Each wireless outlet turns 1 outlet into 2, so you can operate your Christmas tree and a nearby lamp simultaneously without leaving your chair 6 buttons control each receiver separately Replaceable CR2032 3V button-cell battery included
It's not hard to do a google search and find 10% off coupons Lowes also gives 10% off military discount (which in effect saves me (Ca) more like 11%)

good price. I bought lots of timers this year. 2 pack at Amazon for $17.99. put on all outlets (tree, tree, 2x small decorations, village etc.) worked great. lights come on early while kids get ready for school, then shut off until 5pm when they go on until 11:30. Didn't worry about any of them all season.
update: I was merely commenting that I like the idea, but I'd still have to remember to turn lights on/off. I prefer timers. But I like the persons comment about being able to remotely turn on lights as a security feature. But would they have to be dedicated because if the outlet is off, only the remote can turn on the light normally.

Not understanding what this is for. Is it so you don't have to walk over to a light switch? So you don't have to get out of bed to turn off an overhead light? Maybe for Christmas tree lights, although I plug mine into a timer.

my4mainecoons said: ok thanks. (If I think there's an intruder I'm calling 9-1-1 not flicking lights on & off.) We have an alarm system that will automatically call if alarm is tripped but if I hear something in the house I'm not automatically going to call 911. I'm also not going to walk around in a dark house to investigate. Just saying that it could be a additional thing for your own piece of mind. Besides I just bought a couple and I have to justify the $10.00 somehow.
I often hear things go "thump" in the night, ie 4 large cats. I'll keep trying to come up with a possible use for this-- hate to pass on a good deal for a gadget but I'm hoping I'll be 90 years old before I can't walk to the wall to turn off a light switch. Now if this had a motion sensor...

Only problem with that is to turn it back on, you have to go back to the remote. Drives me crazy when I enter the room at night for the first time since that morning, and flick the wall switch and the light doesn't turn back on, so I have to go over to the other side of the room/bed and get the remote. In the dark.
Just a heads up - these operate on RF frequencies. IF your neighbors have any strong emitters nearby, they might occasionally trip your device so you will wake up to a brightly lit house. Just keep that in mind, if you live in close quarters with others.
These are great! A steal at $2.99. Unfortunately I've placed two online orders for in-store pickup and had them both canceled as the store employees couldn't find them... (if you're looking for that one in Burlington VT, sorry it's not there!)
I have had a really annoying experience with this -- last night after I posted my earlier post in this thread, I ended up ordered 4 of these and some of 2 types of their other 75%-off products, I got a confirmation email, then I got a call at 8 am telling me that the store's inventory was wrong on 2 of the items, but that the third item was at the counter under my name and I could come to pick it up,
so I was planning to go in the evening to pick it up,
and later in the afternoon the store's online inventory was still showing that these items were in stock (but the numbers showed that FEWER were in stock than were showing on the website last night, so something was moving somewhere),
and when I called the store in the afternoon to ask them about the changes in inventory numbers on items that they had told me were totally gone from the store, they told me that "somehow" the third item (the one that they had told me in the 8 am phone call was being held at the desk for me) had been sold out from under me, and they didn't have it anymore, like it was just too bad for me but had nothing to do with them (even though the person whom I was talking with in the early afternoon was the SAME person who had called at 8 am to say they would be holding the item for me at the front desk for the next 4 days).
They didn't even apologize or offer to substitute it or to give me a discount on a similar item or anything.
I asked why I hadn't received any further emails about this order after getting the purchase confirmation last night -- I had received no morning-time pickup email for the 3rd item that they had called me about, and I had received no cancellation email about the 2 items they said the didn't have in stock, etc., nor about the third item that was sold out from under me.
The person told me they don't understand how the email system works (!), but that I should consider the present phone call (where I had called them to ask about why the website still had supposedly-incorrect inventory numbers for these items showing up in my local store's inventory), to be my only cancellation notice that I would be getting from Lowes about my online order. (This irked me - there should be a proper "paper" communication trail about orders.)
Then I called the national cust. serv. number to complain, and waited for about 10 minutes in the phone tree before the system hung up on me without anyone answering.
I called again, got a real person, described what happened, and they said they'd call the store manager to pass on my complaint.
They asked me when would be the best time of day in the next 24 hours for the manager to call me: evening today, morning tomorrow or afternoon tomorrow. I said I would like to be called today in the evening.
Nevertheless, he called me 20 minutes later (today in the early afternoon), probably hoping that I would not be at the number and he could leave a message.
He didn't really seem surprised at what I told him, and he just kept repeating that these are "seasonal items" and that the store was out of stock and would not be getting more in, so I was out of luck.
I told him that the store obviously has several systemic things going wrong - I never got follow-up emails, the website was still showing the items in stock (changing numbers), in the morning I was told the third item was being held for me at the front desk and that I could come pick it up, but suddenly when I called in the afternoon they happened to notice that it was gone and had been sold out from under me, etc.
And he just kept saying, "These are seasonal items and we will get no more in, so you are out of luck, you can't buy any of these from us now."
...Like I was complaining unreasonably about items being out of stock -- that was NOT the issue, instead I was complaining about being told at 8 am that they had one at the desk they were holding for me, about how I got no cancellation emails or anything (I still haven't received anything in writing), about how their stock levels online for 2 of the products were going down during the day today but yet they told me they had zero in stock at 8 am, etc., about how the front desk person I spoke to was just flippant and unapologetic about "losing" the item I had paid for which they had been holding for me, etc.
In the last half year, we have bought 3 large appliances from them, plus used their contractors to put up a fence on our property. There were some problems along the way that got sorted out, but mainly we were pleased with those experiences. So, I was really surprised at the unprofessionalism and flippancy about this issue today. Yes, these are $2, $3, $4 items, small stuff, but you don't tell someone you are holding their purchase for them and then sell it to someone else without even proactively informing the person not to travel to the store to pick it up, without even apologizing or trying to offer them something to make up for the inconvenience and frustration. And you sincerely apologize for screwing things up -- don't act like it's the customer's fault, and/or an "act of God" that no one could control.
I'm still frustrated with them - I might write a complaint letter, don't know if it would do any good.

Now if this had a motion sensor... My mother has one of these. When she had her house built, she redirected them to have a bedroom door swing left-to-right instead of the other way round. It made sense for the layout. They did, but didn't modify the electrical plans to move the light switch, so now when you enter the room, the switch is far behind the door. This gadget was the alternative to rerunning wire in the minimal ceiling space and finished walls. She's used it for 15 years now. I'm still not a fan; mostly because I don't use it often and fumble in the dark to find the right button when it's hanging on the wall where the light switch would naturally be. To each their own.
I can't remember the last time I've received an email from Lowes stating the order was ready for pickup. I just have to guess if the order is or get the call that the inventory was incorrect. They do need to correct their system.
