I bought a floor lamp for use with a mechanical timer that turns electricity on and off using a set schedule (for example, when you're away but want to convince others that you're still at home).
Unfortunately, this kind of lamp (I bought it at Target) won't work with a timer because when the timer removes power and then later restores it (normally, this turns a lamp on), the lamp stays off until someone touches it with a finger.
The sensor is on the side of the vertical column of the lamp and I can't mechanically access the sensor itself.
Can anyone think of a way to modify the lamp so as to ignore the sensor and light up when power is restored? Thanks!
