How to Install Wireless Remote Control Light System
Hi! I'm Mark Donovan from HomeEditionPlus.com and today, a really neat gadget to show you. It’s a wireless remote control system that’s used for turning on lights or appliances in a room where you may not have wall switch mounted. What this wireless remote control system consist of is a plug-in receiver that mounts into an outlet and a wall switch. After you plug in the plug-in receiver into the outlet, you basically just plug your light or your appliance into the side of it and then you mount the wall switch on a wall surface. It has a small battery that runs the wall switch and then the plug-in receiver operates off the AC in the outlet.
So, the first thing I've done is I removed the cover on the wall plate and I've enabled the battery by pulling out the plastic tab. So now, I'm taking the plug-in receiver and plugging it in into the wall and then plugging the light or the appliance into the plug-in receiver. Now, I'm positioning the lights which where I want to mount it and testing it to make sure that the light does and did turn on properly. And it is, so we know this is a good place to locate the switch plate.
So now, using the back of the wall plate as the template, I'm using a pencil to mark the holes where I want to drill pilot holes for mounting the plastic wall anchors. Now, I'm drilling my pilot holes for the wall anchors. All right, now I'm just tapping in the wall anchors. All right, so now, I'm securing the back of the switch plate with the two screws. All right, so now, I'm just tightening down the screws in the front cover plate and we’re almost done.
All right, so just to test out the switch one more time. It looks like it works. So, that’s basically it. If you have a dark room or a hallway where there's no switch for controlling a light, think about getting a remote control wireless light switch like I've just installed. They are very inexpensive and easy to install. It makes a huge difference in a dark hallway or in a dark room. If you have other questions, visit us at HomeEditionPlus.com today.
