I ordered a wireless remote control device from Amazon.
The package of 3 adapters and one remote control was delivered in a few days.
As I have said, I mainly wanted it for the lamp by my bed which has a difficult on-off switch. I have other lamps but I really love this pair of iris-painted Limoges lamps which belonged to my mother.
The most difficult part of the entire application was getting the back off the remote and inserting the battery which was included in the shipment and price.
I plugged 3-prong adapter #2 into the wall socket. On a two socket outlet the adapter allows room for the second socket to be used with a regular-sized plug.
Then I plugged the lamp into the adapter. Since the lamp was on already the light came on when plugged in.
I hit the #2 button on the remote and it went off. I would say it works great.
If you’re ordering from Amazon take note that there are different configurations of adapters and remotes such as multiple adapters with one remote, multiple adapters with multiple remotes, etc. There are also different price points and free shipping. My set was $14.97 plus tax and free shipping.
Can you think of a reason to have a remote hooked up in your house?
