Where's the light switch in this bathroom?

I asked the same question about 10 years ago when I stayed at this hotel in Salt Lake City!

Imagine entering the room and looking for the light switch and not finding any?

Have you seen any like this one in your travels?

Yes. I have seen them a lot in small motels. My local supply house stocks the Leviton version. Do you see a problem?

I've been in a hotel room that only had a motion detector as the means to turn the bathroom light on, and it didn't have any type of manual override. The light would turn off if you stayed in the shower too long without much movement! [Linked Image]

Yes, I've installed a few of those. They are kind of expensive, as I remember.

Use those on bathroom remodels when there is no way to get new wiring to the bathroom without a lot of wall cutting/patching. Last time they cost $26.00. Not my favorite thing to do but they are useful
