You have no items in your shopping basket.
Often the elderly, those prone to falling or any other condition that can limit mobility can find it difficult to turn on and off electrical appliances.
Gadget RC Mains Sockets provide a means of switching off or on electrical appliances either at the touch of a button, or simply by getting out of bed/chair and activating a discreet sensor.
This could include switching on the lights, or even switching on the kettle for a cup of tea.
Gadget RC Mains Sockets can be used in two different ways.
1) The first uses the handy remote control. Just attach the socket to your appliance, and use the remote to switch it on and off. This could be from the comfort of your sofa, or even when you’re tucked up in bed.
2) It’s also possible to include a sensor which allow appliances to be switched on when movement is detected. From getting out of bed, to opening the front door. This could include a bed, chair, pressure mat or door sensor, and are each controlled using the stylish Tynetec Reach Alarm unit.
Gadget RC Mains Sockets can lend a helping hand and support you to live as independently as possible at an affordable price.

This is a very well thought-out and designed product that will appeal to all customers in need of generating an alert/alarm to be received by someone else, e.g. family member, friend, carer or monitoring centre (or a mixture of all these persons).

Things to watch out for
Design/ease of use
All aspects of the product are well presented in effective, sturdy packaging, with everything except the screw for attaching the Stand being easy to find (this is hidden in plain sight, being safely secured within the plastic moulding of the packaging).
The “User & Installation Guide” is really well designed with the DIY person in mind, as it is colour coded with the parts of the product, e.g. the mains cable connection has a blue dot on it that lines up with the blue colour on the alarm/receiving unit, which is described in the “User & Installation Guide” in the same colour.
Although it would be best to have this unit installed by a professional installer, especially if it is to be linked to a monitoring centre, without any prior experience I did have it set up and generating alerts to my mobile phone within 15 minutes. Therefore, the device is easy to install and intuitive; especially as once connected to the mains it tells you what you are doing wrong.
John has installed many of these devices himself and trained many others to do this and has always been impressed by the quality of the materials and their durability.
The range of functions available of the Reach Plus Unit, as outlined in the product description, which are in addition to those of the more basic Reach Unit, i.e:
These functions make this a very impressive offering and one that is very scalable according to the needs of the individual, e.g. ability to accommodate up to 32 sensors.
During my attempts at installation, I was encouraged by the fact that I triggered a number of the built in alerts, such as the telephone line failure alert and the mains supply failure alert, which confirmed to me that they both work and are really annoying until you do something about them!
From the installers perspective, John had nothing but praise regarding the functional ability of the product, its reliability and general ease of use. The only criticism he had received from users was that the lights on the front of the device, that alert if there is a problem or highlight the red communication button, can at times be too bright at night and are not dimmable, although they can be programmed to be switched off.
Value for money
At its current price of £187.97 (excluding VAT) and a 24 month warranty, this product represents tremendous value for money (£0.26 per day over 24 months), especially as it is expected to last much longer than two years (an extended warranty is available).
Installation would be an extra cost, but one highly recommended if a monitoring centre and or additional sensors are to be incorporated.
