Got a customer who wants to add a key fob remote control to his VOLTEK light controller(voltek dont do one)(voltek advise finding a 12v controller)
Need 12v switching output.- spent ages on Internet and can only find a micromark which switches 230V.

does anyone know of a system that combines a key fob and linked security lights other than the micromark(pir's run off 9v battery not acceptable to customer). -big house and customer has long walk to front door in the dark at present(shame)...
Thanks

Tell him to buy a torch tight fisted *******:eek:

No seriously, can't you put up a standard PIR which will detect him coming up the drive and switch lights on as don't think the range of a key fob is that far.

customer obsessed with key fobs and remote controls. - the voltec system has a faulty relay on the pcb controller and customer wants remote control operation on these lights.- Might be cheaper for him for me to replace the lot.

Just put same notes on an INFERIOR 'alarm forum' so will see what replies come in?

Easy money once i find a system.....

UPDATE
Got some responses from the alarm forum to follow up....

If he wants a long range you will have problems finding a key fob type remote control. A good little system, at a reasonable price is available under the Acel brand (Electric Centre - formerly AC Electrical) and is an RF transmitter, 4 different functions and a range of 70 metres. The remote control itself is abot 3ins x 1.5ins. Might be worth having a look at.

Steinel make one. Got mine from CEF

Cant remember if it has volt free contacts or not, but you can use it to drive a relay if not.

Looked at WISECONTROLS

Found FREEWAVE system at half the cost - put Receiver in loft and customer can use remotes in either garden and wireless switches all work well. Customer can now override the VOLTEK security lights....

Also he's gonna put a wireless switch in his bedroom so can turn on lights remotely -if he hears noises outside without having to go out.

Freewave also do wireless alarm systems -and offer FREE training - you can then be put on their list of installers.!!

You can get a 150m range key fob remote control here, which has isolated volt free contacts so you can switch any voltage. Might be useful. RS components and Farnell both have loads of choice on similar ones as well.
