The PR-318S - SkylinkHome Repeater/Receiver for Security System is a module that allows you to wirelessly manipulate connected lights, including turning them ON, OFF, dimming and brightening. The PR-318S 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-318S, which in turn can be plugged into a standard outlet. The PR-318S can be programmed to work with as many as 16 SkylinkHome transmitters, so expanding your system to include remote controls, motion sensors, etc is a breeze.
The PR-318S 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 PR-318S 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-318S in the middle of the transmitter and receiver to smooth the signal as well as lengthen the operating distance.
The PR-318S is the only SkylinkHome unit that is compatible with existing Skylink Brand security systems. The PR-318S can convert signals from a TC-318-7 or TC-318-10 or TC-318-14 transmitter to operate Skylink Security Systems. It can operate 3 functions: Arm Away, Disarm, Panic. The compatible systems are the SC-100, SC-1000 and AM-100, which can all be found here at Home Security Store.
