Caution!!

I purchased a few inexpensive 12VDC wireless remotes last year for the same purpose, DW is vertically challenged compared to my 6'2" frame. They work great!!! Actually TOOOOO GREAT, as they activate my remote control unit on my 120 volt inverter along with the lights. I tried 3 different types of inexpensive remotes, all with the same outcome.

I put them on my test bench and started looking at them. They all use the 315/433MHz frequency as does my inverter and a lot of other xmit/receivers. None of them use a code to ensure only a specific receiver will be activated. I tried moving the frequency around the 315/433 range, but there is so much bleed over (hence the inexpensive part) that they still activate the inverter anyway.

My Options:
My next move is to either disconnect the remote receiver in the inverter or install pull chain switches from ACE on each of the lights. I am leaning toward the pull chains, as they will allow DW to select/deselect any of the ceiling lights.

If you have any REMOTE units (not radio/Tv) check to see if they are activated along with the inexpensive remotes.

I just looked throught the documentation for the one you purchased and you picked a GOOD one!!! It uses an 8bit code to identify the remote.

Now I can order one of these...
Thanks
Don

Thanks for posting this. I think I'll join the club and install one of these. I know my wife will appreciate it.
