BASIC KIT: 1 RECEIVER, 1 SWITCH
The Basic Switch Kit is for controlling 1 light source with 1 single rocker switch. The receiver (controller) is pre-connected to the single rocker switch and is perfect for moving a switch, adding a switch to control a pull-chain light, or adding an additional light fixture to a room without running wires to the switch

Indoors Only: Switches and receiver are not weatherproof and should be used indoors; a receiver or switch installed on an outdoor light will need protection from the elements.
Pre-linked: Switches and receiver are shipped to you already linked together for a quicker installation.
Range: The range of switch is 50-150 feet from the receiver, depending on walls and barriers. Test desired distances before completing installation.
Interference: Multiple units may be used in the same home without interference. Unique radio frequency won’t interfere with other devices.
Power Supply: Receiver requires AC input. Switches are self-powered and require no power supply.
Easy Install: Our small receiver is simply wired between the power and the fixture, and then stored in the light box behind, or at the fixture location. Mount the switch anywhere with industrial tape or screws. Also used to replace outdated, undesired current switches.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Will 2 kits work in the same area without interference/crosstalk?
Yes, each unit is assigned a unique digital ID and communicates only with other units specifically associated through a linking process.
How many switches can link to one controller?
25 switches can be linked to one controller.
How many controllers can respond to one switch?
The only limit is the wireless range. Multiple controllers may be linked to each switch.
Does it work with a 3-way switch?
A 3-way switch kit includes 2 wireless switches to which replace any existing wired switches. The controller replaces existing switches and does not work with them.
What is communication distance (range)?
Typically between 50 and 150 ft. Range. The equipment nearly always works reliably within a 50’ radius and can work at longer distances.
Range is affected by:
Proximity to metal – keep away from metal to increase distance, use plastic boxes instead of metal where possible
Obstructions – Wireless signal transmits through most materials at least some distance. Materials in order of range reduction, minimum to maximum: glass, sheetrock, wood, aluminum siding, sheet metal, stucco (w/ wire mesh), brick, concrete
Interference – Some 900MHz wireless microphone systems are known to reduce the reliability of the wireless switches. There are no other known sources of interference.
What is the typical life expectancy of the sensors and relay?
The products use no batteries and include an integrated magnetic generator. They are designed with a 20+ year intended lifespan. They have a 5 year warranty.
How do I link another switch to an existing controller?
Confirm the controller has power and the Status LED is Green (Output ON) or Red (Output OFF). Hold the MENU button until a click is heard – about 5 seconds. Buttons may be hidden under a sticker.
Click the top button of the switch 3 times. The status LED will pause GREEN for 3 seconds indicating that the switch ID has been added to the controller’s memory. If status LED pauses RED, the switch has been removed from memory; click the switch 3 more times to add it back.
Wait 30 seconds until clicking / blinking stops. Operate switch.
Does the wireless signal interfere with other wireless networks such as WiFi, home security, cellular or other wireless devices so that it does not function properly?
RunLessWire switches and controllers communicate using the 902MHz frequency. It will not interfere with Wifi (2.4GHz or 5.8GHz) or most other wireless devices.
Each unit is assigned a unique digital ID (one of 4 billion) and there cannot be cross talk, even though they transmit on the same frequency.
How do you measure Available Watts?
Watts = Amps x Voltage. So, for example, with the 5 amp RLW controller: 5A x 120V = 600 Available Watts
How can I contact Customer Support?
9am-5pm MST, M-F
The controller does not respond to the wireless switch:
1. Confirm the controller is wired correctly and functional:
-The status light on the controller should be illuminated. Green means the output should be ON, Red means the output should be OFF. No status light indicates that power is not on, wiring is incorrect, or Controller has been damaged.
-Press the “Select” or “Test” button to toggle the controller output. Subsequent presses will cycle between ON and OFF. If the status light changes color and the light doesn’t respond there may be a wiring problem. If the relay doesn’t click, the relay may be damaged from an overload condition.
2. Confirm the switch is functional:
-Click the switch and confirm that the controller status light flickers. Each time the switch transmits, whether it is linked or not, the status light should flicker briefly. If it does not flicker, either the switch isn’t transmitting or the controller isn’t receiving.
-Link the switch to the controller. Hold the “Menu” button for about 5 seconds until the controller clicks, then release. While the controller is clicking, press one button on the switch 3 times. The controller status light will pause GREEN when the switch is added to the controller memory. The status light will pause RED when the switch is removed from the memory. If this happened, click the switch 3 more times to add it to the memory. If clicking the switch doesn’t not link, the switch may be damaged. If a second switch is available and works, then the first switch can be confirmed defective. If not, contact RunLessWire for support and warranty service if applicable.

Have not installed this switch yet, but last one worked great.
This was my third Run Less Wire purchase, they have been a great solution for our household!
I purchased a basic kit to control a ceiling light on the same line I wanted to install a ceiling fan. This kit prevented the need to run a second line for the fan only. It's a costly work around but better than the alternative. In fact I just ordered two more kits, one to separate the bathroom light from the fan and a basic kit to control one receptacle that is used for lamps only
I needed to replace the receiver in a basic single light circuit, so I contacted Illumra who supplied the original receiver. I got a rapid reply from Robert Edman, who told me I'd have to replace the handheld remote as well as the receiver. He directed me to RunLessWire, but the remote I wanted did not appear in the online catalog. Robert then got me in touch with Jenny Hunter to help locate the desired remote. I told Jenny I had given up on finding the desired remote and had ordered the Basic Kit which had already shipped. Jenny said that was no problem and they would exchange the remote I ordered for the one I wanted. She put me in touch with Rhetta Shoemaker who was incredibly helpful, knowledgeable, and efficient. I now have the remote I wanted and a refund for the remote I originally ordered.
All three of these folks treated me like I was their most important customer, even though it was a very small order. I'm still not clear on how Illumra, RunLessWire, and Ad Hoc Electronics (who shipped the desired remote) fit together, but the people involved are among the best I've ever done business with.
Simple to install and works like a champ!
