    Never used this product, but I use something similar for our Christmas lights indoors. It's nice to not have to always plug and unplug them.

    Controlling Christmas lighting actually sounds like one of the few good uses for these. They might work outside, as well, provided the outlet has a weather-resistant cover. But for general use, not so much, since you'd essentially have to carry the remote around with you wherever you go.

    ^ Think of it as having a light switch where it otherwise isn't feasible (or costly) to have one. You need not carry the remote with you everywhere for it to be located in a handy location.

    For example you could have some electrically actuated machine gun nests in your garage for when ninjas are hiding there.

    How much money can you save from turning off on an off and on .... your lights?
    Is it worth spending even dirt cheap $16 for that?
