Are there any on the Shelf products that allow light switches on one side of the room to control unswitched receptacles on the other side of the room? I know that you could do this with smart switches, but those are relatively expensive and I would I think that there is one that uses a RF transmitter and RF controlled relay.enter image description here

  • I take it the reason you want this is because you can't run wiring between the two points, even using a surface raceway (Wiremold)? Jun 19, 2019 at 22:40
  • Ya. I don't want the hardware or anything because that would be a decent amount of work. Also surface wires look ugly.

You're looking for a product that works just like industry standard, connected smart switches, but is not industry standard, not connected, and uses a proprietary radio frequency.

That wouldn't have much of a market, would it? From what you're saying, it sounds like you see the market as "it's cheaper", and you hope that incompatibility and low feature set would make it cheaper. That would certainly make it worth less ... but as far as "cheaper", nah, that's just not how production economics work.
