Does Handy Switch Really Work?

Handy Switch is a remote control device that is used to turn on/off a lamp with extra ease. As seen on the TV infomercial with Billy Mays, HandySwitch is said to work from distances of up to 60 feet, and has wall penetration capabilities making it useful even you’re not located in the same room with the lamp to be controlled. Before using the device, users have to plug in a receiver into the wall socket and then plug the lamp into that receiver device. Handy Switch runs on battery that can be changed by the user as needed. It can be operated by hand, or attached to a wall.

We use it in our bedroom where we cannot access the light switch to the lamps on the bed and we have used this for a few years now and works fine, our only problem now is that the batteries need to changed and I can not figure out how to get cover off without ripping it off the wall.

I bought this to turn the light on in our spare bedroom. It only worked a couple of times. I just paid over $7 dollars for a new battery, got home and changed the battery and it still doesn’t work.

I bought the Handy Switch to be able to turn a lamp on/off in my living room from the garage. I sometimes have to try a couple times to get the light to go off, but it was much cheaper to buy the Handy Light rather than hiring an electrician to put in the extra wiring!
