Make an auto lightswich turner on thing without technology. I know that slideshow is of drawn pics, but the idae is clear.

string (the sturdier the better)
thumbtack or screw with loop ( the screw will be in slideshow)
tape or other sticky thing that wont tear off with pressure

when the door opens, the lightswitch is turned on by the string, but you have to turn off the light when you leave the room

    EXACTLY!? This annoys me SO much! What do you do?

    I just turn on the light... For me, it's not that much effort, so I haven't really tought about it.

    Yeah! But theres no fun in that!

    I know, and it's such a shame... and honestly, I can't think of a soloution other than getting a US style switch installed. Or X10... now that's fun.

    Same here in the UK but mine is a dimmer lol

    This won't work. The standard light switch moves about an inch as it is activated or deactivated. A door must be opened at least a foot for someone to squeeze through. It is technically possible to do this if you put the tape point close to the hinges and do some fine tuning but it wouldn't turn off as you leave. The biggest problem here isn't how you would do this but rather why.

    u would do it to be lazy its just a thing for your spare time

    now that i think of it, if you close the door after walking in, the string would flip it off when u leave the room cause u'd have to open the door again

    No it woudn't. think about it. You'll figure it out.
