Luminara Flameless Candle Remote Control
Battery does not last
I experienced the same problem. The remote worked great but the battery died after 3 uses! I replaced the battery and all is good. I love having the remote for the candles.
Confusion Over Remote
I read all the customer reviews. The problem,I think, is not all luminaries are remote ready. It has to be labeled. On the luminari website it is specifically mentioned.
DOA = Dead on Arrival
Clearly, I received a defective unit. Even with batteries replaced, it doesn't work on any of my Luminara candles, whether purchased 2 years or 2 weeks ago... and not on any setting -- on, OFF, or in-between. Since so many others have had similar problems, I don't think it's even worth requesting an exchange.
Disappointed at first.
When I buy a product I expect it to work without further cash outlay. The remote works well now that it has a new battery. The timer is a nice feature in the Luminara candles; however, I don't turn the candle on every day and when used in my centerpiece it is difficult to take it out to turn it on, hence the remote is very useful.
I have 2 luminaries and the remote worked on both candles. Like it for the summer because I do not burn my candles for 5 hours using the timers. This way I get to control the time candle is on not wasting battery life. I did not have any problems as stated in other reviews. Great idea!!!!
A Must Have....
The luminara candles are by far the best candles around..and the glitter ones, just add that extra beauty...and I'm sure people who bought them, have bought more than one...and with that...the 'must have' remote control..makes flicking on those candles quick and easy...it works on all the luminara candles...so my mother, who has around 5 or 6 of them placed around her house..just clicks away and they all come on so easy... and just click off to turn them off...no turning the candle upside down to switch it on and off...disrupting your set up...just click away...GREAT!
I purchased 2 of these remotes because someone said theirs didn't work so I figured at least one would probably work. They both work perfectly. I ordered some extra batteries because I wasn't sure what the battery life is. I really feel bad for the people who had trouble but I think it's the best invention since sliced bread. Every evening I go through the house turning them on and before bed I turn them off. It is so convenient for lazy people LOL,thanks
It's so nice not to have to get up every time I want to turn my candles on. I bought 4 of the Luminara flameless lanterns, so this remote really comes in handy. So far it's worked great. I highly recommend it.
This was a defective item. I purchased the candles and the remote, but the remote did not work. Very costly item if you have to return it since you have to pay return shipping!!!
I have at least 10 beautiful Luminara candles that I bought and when I purchased , they all Came with automatic timers inside the candle. I guess if you placed the candle in a hard to get area it might be useful. I found that the remote was useless for me or they all come on at the same time at night. It is much more convenient to set the automatic timer on the candle then it is to go around and use the remote.I found the remote not necessary
Works ! Make sure your clock not on Timer!!!
Works if candle not on Timer...But regular On setting.
Then its great !!!
I have no issues with batteries...what a great item if it keeps working.
Company should check remote before sending!
I purchased this about the same time as the last review was written 06/10/14 and same problem......dead battery. I do not have one in the house to replace it. Not sure if this is the problem. AND to make matters worse I purchased a candle along with the remote and it was sent as a little gift. Not a happy camper!
