To use Switcheroo, set a Switcheroo to "Send" mode and pick a channel, then plug it into a switched outlet (or timer).

Then, set one or more other Switcheroos to "Receive" mode on the same channel and plug them into standard (non-switched) outlets. Note: You can have as many receiving units as you would like on each channel.

Switcheroo in Receive Mode

Plug lamps into configured Switcheroos as desired. The "Send" unit does not need to have a lamp plugged into it for the system to work.

Now, turn on your light switch and watch all of your lamps turn on together like magic!
