Really quick post showing latest progress of the fancy light switch.
What do you think? A bit too colourful? It is a bit colourful for my liking. On the other hand the colours do add meaning to the buttons:
blue = presets (obvious)
red = all off (haven’t added this to display yet, you can see below there’s a nice space for the words ALL OFF)
green = cycle modes (light, music, heating, weather forecast, electric blanket mode, etc.)
So yes – useful to tell the babysitter “just press green button to change music”.
Lots of revisions to make to the design. I’ll keep you updated!
(Of course, the whole thing fits in a 47mm wall box with fancy screwless brushed chrome metal faceplate on top of it!)
