Looking for a Slightly Different ON/OFF Light Switch

Postby Scope » Mon Mar 12, 2018 12:17 pm

I've got a light switch in an awkward place where it is hard to switch it OFF (press bottom of switch), switching ON is fine due to me being able to reach the top of the switch.. Is there such a thing as a light switch with a spring toggle or something, so that once switched ON, the spring forces the top of the button out, and when pressed a again it will turn the light on?

(A bit like a dinner switch where its a on/off toggle - expect I dont need the dimmer element of it, so thought if a "normal" (looking) switch existed that could perform the on/off bit it would make more sense..)

Simply Build It

In my bedroom the light switch is press for on and press for off it does not rock it is a simple push button in centre of switch. Also it works with a remote control and if I use a hub can also use PC, tablet or smart phone.

Called MiHome Energenie it does what you want, but may be you will not like price.
