Rated 3 out of 5 by Lovethedelta Price too high
I purchased this at the same time I purchased my Luminara candles. However I was in a local department store after I received it and found it substantially cheaper; particularly since a shipping charge was added to the sale price by QVC. This was the other store's regular price...it was not on sale. However, it was not feasible to return it. This is the reason for my lower rating as this is a great product. It worked as soon as the batteries were added to the candles and the "on" button selected.
Rated 3 out of 5 by kitzlefox WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE?
THIS DOES WORK. I TOO THOUGHT IT DIDN'T UNTIL I REMEMBERED THE PRESENTATION WHICH SAID BE SURE THE CANDLE IS IN THE 'ON POSITION'.
OK....BUT THAT NEGATES THE TIMER WHICH WAS THE ADVANTAGE IN THE FIRST
THIS IS A REMOTE THAT DOES NOT WORK ACROSS A LARGE AREA, SO WHAT IS
THE ADVANTAGE. ??? IT IS JUST ANOTHER "THING" TO BUY INSTEAD OF TURNING
THE CANDLE TO TIMER.
I CAN SEE THE ADVANTAGE FOR A HEAVY PIECE BUT FOR A 6 INCH CANDLE,
NO WAY. GET OFF YOUR REAR AND TURN IT OFF OR PUT IT ON TIMER.
Rated 5 out of 5 by yamma24 If remote doesn't work
If your remote doesn't work, it may be that your luminara candle is not remote ready. Some of the early luminara candles will not work with the remote. I have some from when they first came out that the remote won't work with.
Rated 5 out of 5 by tempess Easy to Use
Out of the box it worked just fine. I would recommend it to anyone. Just made sure you has the candle set to ON.
Rated 5 out of 5 by chewyozzymuffin It Works!
The timer at first didn't work. I took out the battery, rubbed both sides on my pants, put it back in and it works like a charm!
Rated 5 out of 5 by anastasia beaverhousen Very handy, especially during the holidays
Timers are a necessity, but sometimes you need more. All my Luminaras have a timer but also work off this one remote control. It's nice to use when you're entertaining, which may not always be during the same time as your timer(s). The remote allows you to use your candles when you want without worrying about resetting the timer. I just bought a few more for stocking stuffers of last year's lucky candle recipients.

I don't know if I am missing something here but this doesn't appear to work. Very disappointing.
Rated 5 out of 5 by MRR How Handy
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!
Rated 1 out of 5 by ruskyles Disappointed
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.
Rated 2 out of 5 by CCB 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.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 818sbb Awesome product
I find it amazing that you can touch a button and turn all my candles off or on. I love it.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Jaden 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.
