The Portable Light Switch

Portable Light Switch

I need this gadget, the light switch.

I have a really really comfy sofa, which when combined with a few beers means I often find myself waking up downstairs at 4 in the morning. If that wasn’t bad enough the lights are burning my retinas and to turn the lights off, it means leaving the comfort of said sofa. This is where the magic of the On/Off switch comes in, it’s a remote light switch that you can carry around with you to turn lights off from the convenience of the sofa.

Usage is pretty simple:

The wireless switch can control any light fixture you choose, and you can set it anywhere in your house. Simply attach the remote component to your light fixture, open the On/Off box and flip the switch – that light on the other end of the room instantly turns on or off! The switch works up to 100 feet away and comes encased in an elegant Lucite box with a magnetic lid.

The only real drawback of this cool light switch is the price, costing $120 from uncommongoods.com it does seem some what steep.

I’m not sure what the clear plastic case is? Is it included?
120$ yeeooooch that is plain stupid. I have one that is EXACTLY the same (minus that clear plastic case) that I’ve had for 12 years and it cost my uncle 19.99 at a hardware store (home depot)for my birthday gift. Now I know they don’t sell them anymore but I’m sure if you looked around you can find the one I have.

Steep indeed. The switch/transmitter and the receiver cost about $15 in local stores. The lucite box, however, is extra.
