GE 52149 Handy Switch, Plug-In Toggle-Style Load Controller, White
Perfect for hard-to-reach lamps and small appliances G.E.’s 52149 Handy Switch allows you to plug in a device to be switched right at the outlet. You will enjoy the benefits of lower energy consumption and the convenience of not having to plug in, and unplug your favorite lamps or appliances. Featured on the Handy Switch is an outlet which is ready for both grounded and polarized plugs, as well as a toggle switch for controlling the attached load. There is no programming needed for this switchable load controller and the installation couldn’t be easier. Simply plug the device you wish to control into the Handy Switch. After, you will plug the Handy Switch into a convenient, standard, 120VAC outlet. Then, installation is complete and you are ready to test the Handy Switch.

The Handy Switch allows the user to switch devices that usually remain plugged in, but have no switch of there own. Even devices that do have switches (i.e. televisions and other home theater equipment) will consume less energy when switched by the Handy Switch. This is due to low level energy consumption that is occurring while you think the television is off, because it is still plugged in. When a device like a television is switched off by the Handy Switch, no voltage is allowed to flow through the televisions circuitry, preventing that low level energy consumption. Another great use for this device is seasonal lighting, as in switching Christmas lights or lighting decor. This device does not require programming, new wires, or batteries. Read more

AmerTac OMLC3BC-4 Outdoor Screw-In Motion Activated Lighting Control, 150-WattsGive your home added security and safety by adding automatically activated, motion based lighting controls. This screw-In, 150-Watt, outdoor, motion detecting lighting controller will automatically and appropriately turn On” your outdoor/security/perimeter lighting whenever motion is activated. It uses a built-in photocell to determine whether the outdoor lighting is needed. If it is dark enough to require lighting, the bulb will be energized when motion is detected, then will be turned “Off” after ten minutes of inactivity within the detection area. Motion will be detected up to 25-feet away from the sensor and can be mounted at a height ranging from 8 to 18 feet providing the user flexibility for installation. The motion detector attaches to the screw-in adapter using a ball-and-socket style, swivel mount. A swivel mount also provides flexibility during installation by allowing the sensor to be fully adjusted left, right, up and down; directing the detection pattern to wherever it is needed. Compatibility with almost every type of bulb (Works with CFL’s, incandescent, and halogen), allows you to use this with any outdoor/security/perimeter lighting you already have around the home.

AmerTac CL11LC 300W Indoor Light Control

  • Turns incandescent lights on at dusk, off at dawn
  • For use with indoor table or floor lamps
  • Plugs into standard wall outlet
  • Incandescent bulbs only, 300 Watts Max

The AmerTac CL11LC 300W Indoor Light Control offers a measure of safety, security, and convenience by automatically turning your light on at dusk, and then off at dawn. It can simulate home occupancy to deter intruders. Or make sure you never come home to a dark house again – no more fumbling for the light when you first enter your home. Simply plug the control module into any standard wall outlet (near a source of natual light) and plug the desired lamp into the control module.

A photocell tells the connected lamp when sunlight begins to wane and automatically turns on your light. Then, when the sun comes up again, the photocell will turn off your light. You’ll save money on electricity bills, since your light won’t accidentally remain on during the day when it is not needed. And since the photocell works based on light detected, you won’t have to manually make seasonal adjustments. Read more
