A wired house, consumes less electricity! I have an awesome idea... possibly the greatest idea man kind has ever had in the history of the universe.... greater then Einstein's E=mc^2... greater then the McRib... greater then sliced bread.... Ok i hope i didn't overhype my idea, but here goes! What if you could wire up an entire house's lighting system? Just the ceiling and wall lights (since lamps couldn't really be part of this system) and outdoor lights all rigged to panels upstairs and downstairs. It would be great if I could walk upstairs, wonder if i turned all the lights out, and just check a panel! Plus its great for saving energy, the panel probably wouldn't take more then a few watts of power since all you could need is an LED for each light. With this, you'll never have to worry about having a ceiling light on downstairs taking 50-200watts of power (even with CF our ceiling lights still take up 45 watts each). I'm sure this is possible because we have a light that has 2 switches (one upstairs, one downstairs, its a staircase light) and that could easily be converted into a microchip type setup. Doesn't this sound awesome :D I should be an inventor/genius! Penguin Power!
