Easily turn off and on your Air Filter - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=84QEl8SfvJk
Smart! I use one of those on my bedside lamp, but it hadn’t occurred to me to do the same for my filter or external fan!
Cool project, some satisfaction in all that tech.
If you’re not into the tech angle, this a bit of a complicated solution. There are plenty of remote switches that just work with no setup or network.
From the simple:
Cordinate, White/Gray, Designer Switch Plug with Braided Cord, 6 Ft Long Power Cable, for Tabletop or Wall Mount, Perfect for Lamps/Seasonal Lights, 3 Prong, Slip Resistant Base, 41095 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KFMNJLH
Or a single remote outlet:
DEWENWILS Wireless Remote Control Electrical Outlet Switch, RF Remote Control ON OFF Light Switch Kit, No Interference, 15 AMP Heavy Duty, 100 FT Range, Compact Side Plug https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HWB0TPU
Or for controlling a whole set of things:
Etekcity Wireless Remote Control Outlet Light Switch for Lights, Lamps, Christmas Decorations, Plug and Go, Up to 100 ft. Range, FCC, ETL Listed, White (Learning Code, 5Rx-2Tx) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DQELHBS/
I use option #2 to control my Christmas tree.
Great idea–and thanks @evansd2 for other options–I just have the basic, but has me thinking of doing this for my main power, since it’s rather a stretch for me to reach the power switch!
We have a number of “Smart” switches/lightbulbs/outlets, but I swear by these Etekcity outlets for ease of use (and lack of Internet reliance). We have half a dozen of them. The only flaw being that there are only so many frequencies for the remotes. Last Christmas I had an overlap between one string of lights and my exhaust fan.
