230v 50hz light switch in a 230v 60hz country


I'm looking to buy and install this IR remote light switch that's rated for use in the UK / EU. And I know that they use 230v 50hz over there. But over here in the Philippines, we have the same 230v but we use 60hz frequency. Would this be a major problem?

P.S. the light switch only has 230v +/- 10% written on the specifications, so I dunno if it's 50hz or 50hz / 60hz, or that if frequency would even matter.

Thanks in Advance.

It will work fine in either country. Where is the picture or link to the switch in question.

So I'm assuming that like appliances, switches only need to cut the current on and off, so it won't matter as to its voltage / frequency? Any idea since this is an IR remote dimmer switch (won't that in itself need power)?

Here's the link of what I'm planning on getting:
