Instant Switch

instant_switch.jpgInstant Switch is a way to activate (and deactivate) any outlet from a remote location. To use it, all you have to do is plug a little gizmo in any outlet and then plug in your light, computer, etc. into the gizmo. Now, place the switch anywhere you want to (within 60 feet) and it now controls the light via a wireless signal. The switch has a dimmer on it as well.

We're not big fans of overhead lighting, so we tend to have lamps all over the place. The only problem is that we spend quite a lot of time wandering around dark rooms feeling for the switches (and stepping on the cats). That said, something like this might be nice to have.

Instant Switch costs just over $20.
