(That you already stated) i wouldn't use the take a look at button as an on/off. They are not designed for too many actuations. 3. Make it smaller by using the use of a mixture, transfer with unmarried outlet. (You could twine the outlet via the switch) 4. Use a better wattage dimmer switch to manipulate the speed of a small motor driven device like a scroll noticed or flexshaft rotary tool (much like a dremel) watch the temp of the switch, they can overheat because they aren't honestly meant to be used that way. 5. Use a rotary timer switch to power your christmas lighting. (Auto off after a pair hours) 6. Use a bigger field and twine a pool pump timer to control your christmas lighting. (Pretty a bit more money, however the small pre-built ones do not generally cope with sufficient amperage.).
