I love these little candles the remote works for them as a whole when turning them all on but only when you point it at them in a closer range. They make for a super romantic setting and a dim nightlight for my kids. They have a switch on the bottom and the remote has 3 timer settings so they are not on all night when I forget to turn them off. Will come in handy when the power goes out where we live fairly often so itll be a nice suttle light. They do have the flame ficker and thats a nice touch. Something more than I expected when I ordered these.
