Convert a standard Dacor Style wall switch into a lighted switch.
I know that this is a hack which allows a LED to run in half wave rectification and light up a standard wall switch. There is a small amount of voltage and current always running in the circuit unless the load is burned out.
Check with local regulations before using this switch. Since this is not CE certified it may present a safety concern. I have had no problems but I assume responsibility in my own home. Play safe and have fun.
You can choose to light one side of the paddle or both.
Step 1: You Will Need
A Dacor style switch
6.2 KOhm Resistor 3Watt
A diode 1N4007 works nicely.
A couple of LEDs. Unfortunately I used Blue.
