The perfect hand-held remote for controlling 12VDC devices on-board!
We use this remote for turning on our LED deck lights from the dinghy on our way back to the boat. It makes finding the boat and boarding in the dark super-convenient.
This device can operate any 12VDC circuit that you want to turn on and off remotely, such as deck lights, interior lights, or other devices that you need to operate from a distance.
It is a single channel system that can switch 12V loads of up to 7 Amps, so it is perfect for deck lights, interior lights, or small DC appliances.
It features a super-secure learning code remote, and can operate in several different switching modes, such as normally on, normally off, momentary on, etc.
It operates on 433MHz, has 95db sensitivity, and has a range of up to 100 yards line-of-sight.
The receiver box weighs only 35 grams so it can easily be mounted to most surfaces. The waterproof remote key fob contains a single button. Features waterproof fobs, great range, and 0.008A current draw in standby mode.
NOTICE: The receiver module has a dry relay contact, which means it operates as a remote switch, but the relay itself has no voltage source. The receiver electronics are powered by 12VDC, but the relay can be thought of as a normal switch with a set of contacts. The contacts close (or open) to feed (or interrupt) power to a load, meaning it switches whatever voltage it is fed. For instance, it could switch 5V, 12V, or 24V but the relay terminal must be fed that voltage. So, if utilizing it as a 12VDC remote switch you simply jumper 12VDC from the power input terminal to the relay terminal, thereby feeding 12V to the contacts. See the instruction manual link below for further information.

Works well so far. I've wired a lot of devices over the years and the location of the terminals made this one of the hardest. The terminals are close to the case and the access drillings are higher than the terminal so you can't insert the wire directly into the terminal. Slide off terminals would make it much easier.
The receiver module PCB is easily removed from the plastic casing for wiring and reinserted for operation. It snaps back into the four clips (one at each corner) and can be lifted out by hand by lifting at a slight angle.
The product does what it states it does. I needed the input & output wire ports to be larger for my intended project so clarification of wire gauge size it would accommodate would have been helpful. It did state the Max current rating. A good product and value.
This is great for those who have simple electric windless. The remote is easy to configure and you get two remotes, one can be a spare. I expect this remote would be great for other things on boat, such as horn, cabin lights etc.
