The House-off Switch is a switch that allows a user to turn off all non-essential electronic items in their home from a central switch. Push the button to turn your house on when you get home; push it again to turn it off when you leave.
Aiming to make the green way the most convenient way, the House-off Switch was part of a larger project to encourage 'green' action among the environmentally disenfranchised.
The project searches for an 'environmental everyday' where people take up 'green' behaviours because they want to rather than because they think they should. An everyday where 'being green' doesn't imply sacrifice.
