Remote Control or Wall Switch


#1

I was looking at getting an Aeon Labs remote control but they seem really expensive on amazon £80…

Is there a cheap alternative I can get to trigger individual things or routines?

There are a number of different battery operated devices that are made on the U.K. Frequency. See the following FAQ:

As for the minimote, in the UK you often find the least expensive prices at the specialty retailers, rather than at Amazon.co.UK. For example, Vesternet has the Aeon minimote for £42.

The remotetec is another nice button controller you can leave on a table or mount on the wall. It has eight buttons, each of which has tap, double tap and long hold for 24 different options and one device. It’s a little bit bigger than the minimote, not really intended to be held in the hand but not huge, either. Right now vesternet also has that at £42.

There are some other specialty retailers as well, although Vesternet is certainly one of the largest in Europe. It’s always good to shop around. :sunglasses:
