Making some changes to my lighting and I have a table lamp which I’d like to put a smart bulb in and control with a smart switch (it’s a hue bulb and aurora switch if it helps).
Obviously that setup fails if someone physically turns off the lamp, using the turn knob.
Without re-wiring the lamp, does anyone know of a way to lock the knob in the on position or something along those lines?
I tried just unscrewing the knob, but it leaves behind a tiny screw. Certainly would serve the purpose of stopping people from turning off the lamp! But not sure a little screw sticking out passes the wife test.
What I was thinking of would be something that could be placed over the knob itself to keep it from turning or something that could cover the screw left behind when removing the knob.
Or any other suggestions! I’m sure I’m not the first to want to do this. What solutions have others found?
