    Inexpensive Remote light system

    For a while now I wanted a inexpensive way to control the outside lights in my backyard. I have to leave town for a couple of days and although the wife has her gun, knows how to use it and is willing very much to defend herself, I wanted to leave something set up so she could light up the backyard if something went bump into the night. Motion sensor Lights are a no-go due to the cats, dogs, possums and assorted urban wildlife. Today I was ready to rig some system she could start from the bedroom and I went to Lowes with the idea to buy a floodlight, wires, switches, etc. However I bumped into this item


    Westek Handheld Transmitter and Plug In Receiver (Wireless)

    I bought it alongside a outside halogen lamp and I got back to do a quick install. It works great and from anywhere inside my house. The instructions indicate that it holds up to 960 watts and the remote works up to 100 feet. Not bad for $15.

    That would be great for turning on a directional flood light down a hallway.

    I've mentioned it in previous threads, but we live in the country and it is DARK out here. When we drive in at night I want to remotely and unexpectantly turn on some outside floodlights and we drive up to our garage. If a BG is lurking I want to catch him by surprise and I want him to lose his night vision. I think ideas like these remotes etc, but the odds in our favor vs the BG's
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    It's a great idea to keep in the car, and turn on some lights on the way up the driveway!
