I decided that I wanted a *cool* way to switch on an exterior light for the Mancave. I didn’t want a sensor light, and I wasn’t going to dig a trench for a cable from the house. I know there are all kinds of funky remote controlled lights, wifi enabled power controllers and many other home automation gadgets, but I wanted something a bit different, and most of all… cheap!
So, I bought a $12 remote car lock kit from Aliexpress and played around with it…. pretty cool, and lots of possibilities, starting with the light above the door, and who knows what else!
