Have you ever lay in bed and wished you had a way to shut off all the room lights?  To dim some of the room lights and shut off other ones?  How about being able to shut off your partners bedside light if your partner falls asleep and leaves their light on?  And then, when you leave the room, to hit a few switches that will shut out all the room lights from one place?

If so, read on.  This bedroom lighting control system is very easy to setup and gives you total lighting control from bedside or door side. 

There is a video showing the bedroom lighting control system in use.  There are also some pictures and a schematic diagram showing the interconnect.  A parts list and cost is included as well.

this looks kind of complicated. cute tho!
<p>Thanks Leanne,</p><p>I haven't looked at this in a while. FYI, Since I posted this, the technology has a changed a little bit. The switches now come with the ability to receive RF (radio waves) inside the actual switch. So, you can buy a few wall switches, install them in your bedroom wall and put some small white RF controllers on each night table. </p><p>With this combination, you can achieve the same bedside dimming control as shown in the instructable with much less effort!</p><p> Here are the parts that will work From Amazon:</p><h4><a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005LIH2QG?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o05_s00">INSTEON Mini Remote - 4 Scene</a></h4><p><a href="http://www.amazon.com/Insteon-2477D-SwitchLinc-INSTEON-Dual-Band/dp/B003ZTVZ0W/" style="font-size: 18.0px;font-weight: bold;">Insteon 2477D SwitchLinc INSTEON</a> </p>
