You need a few tools and parts including a wireless light controller, and a SPDT push button. (You need one that doesn't take much force to push)
Step 1: Tools
Hot glue gun
Soldering gun and Solder
Wire strippers and Cutters
Wireless light controller
Perch that folds...? (Step five explains better)
Step 2: The Main Piece!
Take apart the transmitter remote.
I replaced the small 12 volt battery with a Energizer 9 volt rechargeable battery. (You don't have to. I did because the 12 volt battery died)
On the other side of the PCB, mark where the four solder plates are for the two switches. (On and Off)
Step 3: The Switch!
When the switch is closed, pins numbered 1 and 2 connect.
When the switch is open, pins numbered 2 and 3 connect.
I soldered about a foot of wires from the switch. (this is what is going to connect to the transmitter, So when the switch is pushed, lights are on. When the switch is unpushed or open, the lights are off!) With the three wires, I winded it up and covered it in hot glue.
The two white wires are connected to the 'ON' switch. So when the switch is being pushed, it is substituting the original 'ON' switch.
The white wire on the left and the blue wire on the bottom are for the 'OFF' switch. When the switch is released or out, the new switch is substituting for the 'OFF' switch.
Step 5: The Switch Goes...
My birds love this! I found this white bird perch. I put the white perch under the green and orange thing and marked where a good place was to put the switch. Use a little bit of hot glue to hold the switch in place.
I ran the switch wires under and in the white perch. (then down the cage)
Step 6: 9 Volt Battery?
Because when the switch is not pushed, it is sort of pushing and holding the 'OFF' button as long the battery is connected. I just used mini jumper cables to connect the nine volt battery to the transmitter. You can add a SPST switch and a nine volt battery clip to make it official.
Step 7: Final!
I have two parakeets.
