to an electrical outlet, then plug in a light or home
appliance to the socket on the Plug-In ON/OFF
Control (In/Outdoor).
The Plug-In ON/OFF Control (In/Outdoor) is designed
to operate maximum load of 1500W at 120VAC.
Do not connect loading that exceeds this maximum
rating.
In order to operate the Plug-In ON/OFF Control (In/Outdoor) remotely,
transmitter or sensor, must be programmed to the Plug-In ON/OFF
Control(In /Outdoor). Each module can be operated by up to 8 different
transmitters (or 8 different command signals).
There are 2 operating modes with the Plug-In ON/OFF Control (In/Outdoor):
1) On / Off Mode - When a valid signal is received, it will turn on or off a
load.
2) Countdown Timer Mode - When a valid signal is received, the load will
be on for a specific period of time, either 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes,
30 minutes, or 60 minutes, then off. This is mainly for energy saving.
