Do you have appliances that don’t have an on/off switch and the plug is difficult to reach? If so there is an easy and inexpensive solution — wireless remote wall outlets.
You can most likely find these at your local hardware store, or you can order one online. For an example, click here to go to Amazon.com and see the Woods 13569 Indoor Wireless Remote Control Kit up to 66 ft. Range, 3-Outlet Pack.
Here’s How It Works
This particular version includes 3 outlet units and 1 remote, so you can turn 3 outlets on (or off) from a distance of up to 66 feet. It works for small appliances, lamps, lighting, and some security applications.
This is great for instances where your plugs are in hard-to-reach locations, and it’s also ideal for the mobility impaired.
There is also an added bonus in energy savings. As you probably know, many electrical devices drain energy even when they are turned off. That is, if a device is plugged in, it can be (and often is) wasting energy. However, when you use the Woods Wireless Remote to turn off the outlet, it completely cuts power to your device. How cool is that? For around 20 bucks or so you’re making your life a little easier PLUS you’re conserving energy!
