Shabbos Light Switches
« on: April 21, 2013, 01:26:47 AM »
Seems to have haskamos from many rabbonim. Will be interesting to see the reactions when it comes out.

Was wondering, would you use it?

It seems like it would have the same status as a refrigerator/freezer, where some permit opening them only when they are running.

On the same note, this "workaround" may be uncomfortable to some, much like the Shabbos elevator, just because it doesn't "feel" Shabbos'dik.
