Main Question or Discussion Point

Similarly to air switches in hot tubs, I am looking for a UL Certified product that includes a SPDT switch, relay and transformer to plug in to a standard 110V 15A outlet. The relay would be energized by the low voltage from the transformer and activated by the SPDT switch which would then switch a 110V AC output. The switch would need to be mounted externally away from the device.

Welcome to the PF.

I used Google Images to search on Remote Power Switch, and got lots of hits, including some SmartHome options:

See if you can find what you want in that hit list.

I've done some extensive searching already and everything I've found either has the switch mounted directly on the device or is wireless. The switch must be hard-wired and separate from the device.

How long do you want the switch wire to be?

Minimum 15 feet I guess.

Well, I went a few pages into the Google Images search that I linked, and I see your point.

So I tried a different search, since pool pumps run on AC Mains power, and may need a wired remote control to turn them on an off. This hit list seems to have some candidates, but I don't know it they would fit what you're looking for:

Hope it helps some.

Man, there really isn't anything out there to control an outlet with an electric switch and a relay without building it myself.

We're going to go with a hot tub/garbage disposal air switch. $35 gives UL certification and 25A rating.

Thanks for the help though.
