Remote control main switch?


Standard Member
Hello All.
Can anyone please offer a recommendation for a remote controlled, ON - OFF mains switch? Wish to be able to operate the switch with a hand held control from anywhere in a small house.

I have seen these "plug into the socket" units available in DIY stores and on Ebay but am looking for something of better quality, which physically replaces the existing socket, something purpose made rather than stuck-on as an afterthought. This can also be in the form of a plain fused socket rather than one for a 13amp plug.

Any input much appreciated.
Thank you.

Sorry as I know this is specifically NOT what the OP is looking for, but for teh benefit of peeps who find this thread from a search and are looking for the plug in type, I saw ASDA has a pack of three for silly money (can't remember exactly but something like £3) when I was visiting last weekend. It was so cheap i couldn't believe it.
