Controlling garden lights, water features or other outdoor electrics such as powered gates is easier, faster and more reliable using RF Solutions’ ELITE remote control systems. Each system is delivered ready-to-use including the sleek handheld and fully waterproof receiver containing four relays suitable for loads up to 230V/1kW.

The receiver is housed in a rugged IP68 enclosure designed to be installed permanently outdoors. The unit is wall mountable and provides a choice of 10 cable entry points for ease of installation. Each of the four outputs can be set to operate in timed, momentary or latching mode.

The transmitter buttons can be configured to control any relay in the receiver using RF Solutions “Easy Learn” process. Additional transmitters can be ordered, and paired with an existing system. The receiver provides an easy to use sync/pair button allowing one-press auto pairing, and also has an in-built signal test mode, timer set and erase buttons. As well as system status LED indicators to show all functions. RF Solutions is also able to supply the 4-channel receiver unit separately.
The standard ELITE remote control has a range of 500m, which is more than adequate for most domestic or small commercial applications. For applications requiring longer range, the ELITE-X family operates over distances of up to 2km.

The ELITE and ELITE-X systems comply with applicable EU directives, including ROHS Directive 2002/95/EC, WEEE Directive 2002/96/EC, and the Waste Batteries and Accumulators Directive 2006/66/EC.
