    What are they used for? Am I right in thinking you can say perhaps connect a set of cabinet lights to it and control them on or of from the remote?

    So could it be used to switch on and off a set of lights?

    Presumably. I've never tried it though.

    If you have any solenoid type switch which is operated by a 12v DC control, and the main terminals are adequately insulated then you should be able to control anything.

    FWIW I had a 12v switch trigger on a satellite receiver which I ingeniously coupled to a car main beam solenoid (obviously 12V) and I just put the solenoid's switched single pole terminal in the neutral line of the power chord to an external decoder. Worked a treat, but the insulation of the neutral could have been better.
