Rewiring my house to reduce electricity consumption Answered
I am getting ready to rewire my house and want to do so in such a manner that a motion detector or timer shuts down most of the outlets in a room so that the phantom use of electricity or the abuse of same by teens is reduced (I am being realistic here). The Electrician thinks I am short a few bricks of a load so to speak. Lights he understands, plug load nada. I've seen something similar done in Europe when traveling where your hotel room powered down when you weren't in it and powered up with your key card in the slot when you were in it. I want to shut off all the power in the room when it is empty during periods of sleep except for one outlet which would power the clock/lamp and of course fire alarms. Help me out here.
