Unable to pair remote with light switch

    Hi,

    I’ve just returned from B&Q with a 1 gang / 1 way light switch and a 5 button remote control.

    The light switch is now connected up and works / looks a treat. Unfortunately I’m having no luck pairing the remote. I press both buttons on the wall switch and it flashes between the two LEDs to indicate learning mode. I then press an on (or any) button on the remote (which flashes to confirm the press), but nothing happens with the wall switch, and the learning mode just times out.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks in advance for any help….

    When you press the remote control the light switch should go from flashing alternately, to flashing blue.

    Yeah, that’s what I was hoping to see. No change from the alternating lights though unfortunately.

    I wonder if I have a problematic piece of kit. Only thing is, I don’t know if it would be the light switch or remote that is in error…

    Just got home via B&Q again. I bought the 3x mains socket + remote pack.

    I’ve been able to pair that remote with the wall switch without any issues, so this has proved that the original 5 button remote is faulty. I can now take that back for a refund, as all I need at the moment is the remote that came with the sockets.

    Thanks for your help andytvcams.
