BUT I was just saying the other day that I wished there were some way to shut off the living room light(s) without walking over and pulling the plug.
And then, I flipped a page in a magazine today and found THIS!
It's a remote control that controls up to 3 outlets... perfect for lamps, computer, etc.
This is an outdoor one, but apparently there are many similar models.
More than a want... I feel a NEED coming on!
