Lamps with switches on the cord can be an inconvenient part of an evening ritual. Installing a wall switch to control these lamps can be a great solution - but in some cases, wiring a new switch can be a time consuming and messy process. A great solution for this kind of problem, believe it or not, can be found in wireless technology. This wireless wall switch is a transmitter that communicates with a plug-in receiver.

To mount the switch, start by drilling a couple of holes and inserting plastic anchors.
Attach the switch with a couple of screws and snap in the battery. Screw on the face plate and you're almost finished.

Plug the wireless receiver into the wall and plug the lamp's power cord into it.

That's it! You now have the convenience of a wall switch without running new wires into your walls.
