Adapted wireless remote control for switch

Appliances with plugs can be turned on and off by remote control. The maximum range is about 60 meters. The button for the remote control is enlarged by gluing on a piece of plastic. A key ring attached to the remote control unit makes it easier for the user to grasp and hold the remote control.

Authors comments
User uses the remote control unit for functions such as turning on the computer.

Enlarging small buttons means a lot to the user and makes it easier for him to use the buttons. He has this adaptation on many devices.

Build instructions
Adapted button: take a piece (about 0.5 cm) of catheter tube, glue it to the button and fill it with hot melt adhesive from the glue gun (other adhesive also works).
