Luminara Flameless Candle Remote Control
Bought this for a handicapped friend. Haven't given it to her yet but I tried it out. It didn't work at first and I planned to get a new battery. Put it away for a few days, got it back out and tried again- it worked fine. So handy!
Unfortunately, it doesn't work at all, even when changing out the battery to a new one and verifying that I have compatible candles. The battery compartment is VERY difficult to open. I returned the remote and asked for a replacement, hoping for the best.
Necessary but annoying
I purchased the winter cardinal on the log Luminara candle (by Jim Shore). That candle does not have a timer and the manual on/off switch is very inconveniently located in the piece. Reviewers of the candle recommended getting the remote, so I did. The remote arrived with a dead battery, even though the plastic strip seemed to be in place to protect the charge of the battery. It was so hard to get the battery compartment open, I thought I was doing it wrong. Of course, there were no instructions in the package, nor on the QVC or the actual Luminara websites. When I finally got it open and changed the battery, it worked, but only within about 5 feet of the candle and it has to be pointed exactly right -- each time, I have to press the on or off button multiple times, re-aiming the remote, until it works. I have no other Luminara candles, so the remote has limited usefulness for me. Overall, I am an unhappy customer.
I find it amazing that you can touch a button and turn all my candles off or on. I love it.
Does Not Work
I have luminara candles all over my house. This remote comes without directions and does not work. Most likely the battery is dead, but I cannot even get the battery slot to open. I do not recommend this remote.
Arrived with defective battery. Once battery was replaced is seems to be working.
This is a nice feature to have since I have chosen not to use the timers.
I have given it a 4 star review given that the battery was defective when it arrived.
Most of my candles are luminara and on timers. However, it's nice to be able to turn them off with the remote rather than have them turn off automatically -- especially when you are turning off the lights in the room and don't need the candles to be left on! This was a wonderful invention!
Candle Remote Control
This work very well with the Luminara Flameless Candles. If you line up all your candles it will turn all on or all off.
Happy With Purchase
Purchased tall votive Luminaire candles and specifically wanted to use on them even though candles have timers, because I wanted to save battery life. Couldn't get it to work at first because I didn't follow directions to turn candles "on". Upon discovering my mistake and turning candles on, the remote works perfectly. It also works on the 2 Luminaire glitter candles I already had. Hesitated to order inasmuch as I didn't have total confidence it would work, but am very satisfied with the remote.
Hi!---This remote was just what I was looking for as I have 2 shelves on our fireplace wall that are NOT easy to reach!!!! They are about 10 feet up! This remote can turn my Luminara candles on/off from at least 20 feet back in the living room!! Yeah!!!!!
Just received my remote. I did not receive directions so I pulled up item on qvc and read the directions. Everything worked perfectly. I have luminara candles that I bought for last
Christmas and it works with them also. I read one of the reviews that it did not work with her previously purchased candles but it works great with mine. Thanks Qvc!!!!!
I received this remote today and like so many other reviews the battery was dead. I did have some here and now it works.
