Efergy RF Remote Controlled Power Switch (Stand-By Eliminator)

Efergy Standby Eliminator (RF Remote Controlled Power Switch) showing 4 receivers and remote control

Remote Controlled Power Switches let you turn any mains appliance on and off with a remote control.

They consist of a remote control and a set of receivers. You plug each receiver into a separate power point, which turns it into a remote controlled power point. You then plug the devices that you want to control into each receiver.

I purchased the Efergy Standby Eliminator, which comes as a set consisting of four receivers and a remote control, from CatchOfTheDay for $40 each.

The Efergy product uses radio frequencies (RF) instead of infra-red light, so the remote control does not need a line-of-sight to the receiver. This means that you can install them behind cabinets and tables. A single remote can control 4 different outlets.
