I wonder if anyone has any helpful advice about the following?
I have an external floodlight for the back garden, which I've
connected from a feed within the airing cupboard (it was about as best
as I could do without ripping floorboards up). However it's a tad
inconvenient having to go upstairs to the airing cupboard to switch it
on and off.
I'm thinking of replacing this floodlight with another soon, and am
wondering whether I can change the wiring arrangement as follows.
There's a 13A socket on a bedroom wall which I could take a fused spur
off of and drill straight thru to the floodlight on the rear wall, but
this still leaves the inconvenience of having to go to the bedroom to
switch the light on and off.
I can't use the cavity to run a cable downstairs (which I know isn't
legit with the 16th edition anyway) because we've got cavity wall
insulation in there.
Anyone aware of a remote switch which could do the job? Obviously some
sort of wireless device might do, but there might also be a switch
that would use the house mains wiring to transmit the signal.
