The PR-318 - SkylinkHome 300W Plug In Repeater/Receiver is a module that allows you to wirelessly manipulate connected lights, including turning them ON, OFF, dimming and brightening. The PR-318 does this with the use of a SkylinkHome transmitter, which can control the device from as far as 500 feet away.
Installation is easy and requires only that you plug your lamp or light fixture into the PR-318, which in turn can be plugged into a standard outlet. The PL-318 can be programmed to work with as many as 8 SkylinkHome transmitters, so expanding your system to include remote controls, motion sensors, etc is a breeze.
The PR-318 is convenient for homeowners who might be coming home during late night hours and don't want to enter a dark house. Intruders, after all, like to work under the cover of night. The transmitter will allow you to illuminate a room before entering.
Additionally, the dimming function is a great way to save you money. By dimming your lights to 50% level with a SkylinkHome dimmer, you can save about 40% of electricity, which in turn means a lower electric bill!
The great thing about the PR-318 is that it can also function as a Repeater. What this means is that if you are experiencing dead spots that are making it difficult for the receiver and transmitter to communicate, then you can place an additional PR-318 in the middle of the transmitter and receiver to smooth the signal as well as lengthen the operating distance.
