With the patented Lightning Switch®, you can install controls for lights and appliances in minutes... while saving as much as 70% to 80% of the installed cost of regular wired switches. Incredibly, these revolutionary remote control switches can work for decades… AND THEY NEVER NEED BATTERIES!
Lightning Switch System Basics
Lightning Switch wireless Transmitters (the switch controls) use NASA space technology to generate their own electricity whenever the Transmitter button is pushed. Their radio signals go 50 ft. to 100+ ft. right through walls, floors and ceilings.
How Does It Work Without Batteries?
You can use as many as you like without any worries about interference with or from any other remote controls such as garage door openers, TV remotes, and remote controls from other manufacturers.
And using the Lightning® System Extender… transmission range within a building or compact complex of buildings is unlimited. The System Extender offers a boost for your entire system whether you have 2 products or 100 products! In renovation and remodeling projects, Lightning Switches save $100s or $1,000s per switch because they require no wires to the switch, no demolition, no patching, no re-painting & no hassle!
A Typical Lightning Switch Installation
Put Lightning Transmitters wherever you want: on almost any surface (even stone or glass), left on a table, in a drawer, in a car, or in your pocket. Mount them permanently or use them as a handheld.
Lightning Receivers Wire-In to junction boxes or Plug-In to outlets. Connect whatever you want to control… the lamp, light fixture, exhaust fan, etc… to the Receiver and that’s it! Each Receiver can be controlled by up to 40 Transmitters. A Transmitter can control any number of Receivers. Lightning Switches are so fast, easy and foolproof to install that you won’t even need the instructions after the first time. And they’re protected by a limited 10-YEAR WARRANTY!
