amateur Jack of all trades looking for something I'm not sure exists.
I have a mains lighting ring which means I can plug in lamps in my bedroom and turn them on at the door switch (if the lamps themselves are on).
What I would like is to be able to switch the lamps on from the doorway, off from the lamp itself, then on from the wall again (without turning the lamp back on).
I.e. go to bedroom turn the lamps on on entering the room, go to bed and turn the lamps off from bed and then the next night turn the lamps on on entering the room without having to go to the lamps themselves.
I was thinking about some sort of switch that would turn itself on when the power was lost from the wall switch so that I could flick the wall switch off and then on an again and the lamps should come back on.
The lamps should also be able to be turned off and on again overnight as needed from the lamp switches.
I don't want (nor have the skills) to run wires through the walls etc and so was hoping to do it all through a switch I could wire into the lamp wire
Thanks for any suggestions.
