    Nice little Remote Control Gadget

    Just got home to find these little remote controls waiting for me:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/product/128035

    Indoor Remote Control Sockets.

    Switch your speakers, a lamp or group of lights on by remote control.
    Control a hard to reach socket behind furniture by remote control.
    Switch a fan off and on.
    RF Remote works through walls and ceilings.

    Product Features:

    3x Sockets included
    Wireless Remote control included with 25M Range. Remote can control up to 5 sockets. Battery for remote is included.

    Sockets/Remote have dimmer function for when used with Lights/Lamps to allow you to adjust the brightness of lights.

    All for £8.82 plus delivery.

    Thinking of buying some for work to use on those hard to get to sockets and for practical jokes ;-)

    I've installed these at work; they're brilliant for the speakers in the 'atriums'. Before I had installed them we suffered with masses of interference. Now, we've no problem at all!

    I've also installed the timer ones on our Plasmas around site. Trying to prolong their life! hehe

    I have one of these http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Mini-TV-Remote...QQcmdZViewItem
    I used it a lot when we watched videos at school. Itís also handy for turning off the football in a pub full of supporters! All hell breaks loose.
