- In a time where energy efficiency is king and all unneeded stand by lights are being switched off ever more, you would add a lit switch?
- I must be special, but personally I never forget which switch operates what...
- Strict parents that need a switch to keep their kid off WoW can hardly be considered strict parents in my opinion.
Interesting but it sounds like it would be expensive. It also needs more icons than just light bulbs as there are plenty of other devices that use a switch. In my house there are exhaust fans, wall plates, a garbage disposal and ceiling fans. Would these devices be interconnected so that you can see all switches in the house that are on or off.
Really it would have made more sense for this to be a cheap control panel for X10 home automation and/or other such product types.
I kinda like my switches the way they are... hey I flipped on the switch and my lights came on. In today's economy I imagine this may be a little bit cost prohibitive considering the cost of the switch new wiring and the fact you will probably need an electrician to install all of it.
I think some people would miss physical switches. Being able to turn a corner and find a physical switch is easier then turning a corner and having to look at a touch panel. Other then that, it looks pretty cool.
LOL, they've made switches with LED in them for decades (at least in Taiwan and Japan). The LED will lit up when light is off and off when the light is on. That way, you can tell which light is on and also find the switch at night. The number of switches also corresponds to the number of lights in the room.
