All-In-One House-off Switch

With four bajillion appliances, gadgets, lights and devices scattered throughout the house, turning out the lights before bed or leaving the house can be a 10 minute chore. Designer Jack Godfrey Wood's All-In-One House-off Switch aims to let users turn off all non-essential electronic items in their home from a central switch. All you have to do is push the button to turn your house on when you get home and push it again to turn it off when you leave.

Marketed as an eco device and digital lifestyle aid, the House-off Switch was part of a larger project to encourage green action among the environmentally disenfranchised. According to Yanko Design, the more expensive version of the same concept has a central switch that also allows the inhabitant to leave some items plugged into ‘safe’ sockets around the house which can be left on for security or peace of mind when everything else has been turned off at the central switch. What do you think, would you use it?

This would be really good for my house. My dad is always complaining that he has to follow me around the house and turn off all of the lights after I leave the rooms.

I've been trying to become more aware of what's plugged in and running so yeah, I think I would use this.

I need that so I can turn off some stuff after the hubs turns on every single light and fan in the house. :rant:

Cool! I would totally use it, as long as it didn't turn off my fridge or something. I think it's a great idea. It makes "being green" even easier.

Yup, I'd definitely use this since I tend to be a bit forgetful with turning somethings off.
