Happy with purchase,exactly as describe,bought it for using with my higher power items,
I have a similar Wireless Remote Control Outlet (s), (different but the same)

Noma Wireless Remote Switch with 3 Receivers
Max. Amp: 13A (8A nominal)
Max. Watt: 1000W tungsten (they mean at peak power)
Max. Range: Up to 80’ direct. Up to 60’ through walls and doors (if your lucky)
Reg. $39.99,I got a set for 25$ on special.I use it only for a fans,& low power electronics & lamps,it's an indoor model,from CTC,
I happy with this unit,but I wanted one to handle more power.
Their outdoor model has less amp ratings - The rating is: 125V, Max load: 8A/1000W resistive, 4.8 A/600W tungsten.
Noma Outdoor Wireless Remote Switch with 2 Outlets Reg. $24.99
Both have 80 feet range. (they claim,don't believe everything you read,everything is "UP TO",it's a sales pitch)

I wanted one for my work light(s) 1000w,this model probably would work,but it would be at it's maximum allowed wattage.
Needed a higher wattage unit,than this one ,all the reviews were negative,they probably overloaded them & complained about having 2 buttons,like this one for the on/off function,I owned a single outlet one in the past,used it only for lamps or fans etc...always below maximum wattage,never let me down.Gave it away after getting the 3 outlet one.
Just because it says,max.1000w (it means "UP TO" 1000w),it's going to handle it long term without burning it out,think of it like a generator/inverter 1000w peak,600w nominal,then it would last almost forever .

Decided on this one,just to be safe.
At 39$ it's a good deal (would've liked to see it little cheaper,it's 49.

Not usable by design Dec 25 2012
By Carolyn Hazzard - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The design of the plug head stops it from being used on traditional outdoor electrical outlets that are set recessed inside a protective rectangular box. The long part of the upside-down L shape hits the edges of the recepticle box so that the prongs cannot be pushed into the outlet. Had the cord come straight out from the pronged plug head, it would be usable.

It worked great for 2 weeks and then quit working. I returned it and am supposed to get a new one for free but they are on back order. Winter might be over by the time I get it :(

Buyer beware. Potential internal faults with this device. Jan. 12 2015
By B. Vernaglia - Published on Amazon.com
I love the heat track mats and they have made winter much more pleasant living in the north east. However I do not recommend these remote controls. We used one for a whole season without problem. In the summer I was using my computer outside and plugged my power strip into it. The power strip immediately lit up a red light that there was an internal circuit problem. The light stopped when I plugged directly into the outlet. I decided to use a simple circuit tester and it read that the hot and neutral were reversed inside the remote unit.

Fast forward three months of emails back and forth, and a new device was mailed to me. The first thing I did was test it again. And again, it read that the hot and neutral were reversed. I contacted heat track about this disturbing problem but haven't heard back.

I decided to buy a cheaper product that works great. I'll find and post a link here. I'm stuck now with two malfunctioning remote control units, but happy not to have been electrocuted.

Love it. Works great Dec 20 2014
By jlk - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Love it. Works great! All with the touch of a button from inside your home but it does have to be close to its control unit without any type of blockage to make the connection signal between the pointer on the remote control and the light on its mother unit. Works thru my kitchen window as long as I point it directly to the light on the control unit. I bought 3 residential heat mats last year from amazon and I didn't expect the doubling of my electric bill despite intermittent plugging and unplugging from the outside last winter. The mats were not left on 100% of the time (more like 60-70% of snowtime when needed) but my electric bill reflected summer air conditioning usage rates which was a sticker shock. So this year I purchased this remote control to cut down on the time the mats are left on to see if I could decrease the amount of energy it consumes.

Works great. Saves money. Dec 21 2014
By David N - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This works as advertised and is saving us a lot of money. We just turn on our mats on our deck when they are covered with ice or snow, and turn them off again when the mats are clear and dry. We also turn them on when snow is expected in the next few hours. We probably run the mats (three large mats, seven stair mats) about 20% of the time now compared to just leaving them on all winter, and the pathway our dog needs to go down to his area stays nice and clear.
