LED Closet Lighting
Nice one! Can you share more information about the way you made the switch? Did you use magnets? I'm looking into doing the same thing in my closet.Thanks! - fw3d
Hey there, I actually just used a small snap acting single pole double throw micro switch (see pic below) you could use any switch you think might work, a magnetic reed switch would work as well. Just take into account the mounting and if you need it normally open, or normally closed when finding a switch. In my case, I used normally closed, so when the door opens, and the switch returns to the normal state, it is normally closed. Hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions. - dhdesignworks
