In my house, there were some confusing panels of that had lots of switches on them, so I bought a labeling machine and put labels over all the switches in the house.
There are two blank switches next to the fireplace that are there in case we ever want to have a heater connected to it. For fun, I labeled these two blank switches like so:
Unfortunately, the switches don't actually do anything. I've been wanting to hook them up so that when you flip a switch, it makes an alarm sound go off, or there's an explosion sound or something like that.
I haven't ever dealt with electrical switches, so I don't know how easy this will be, and I have no idea what sort of apparatus would work well for this purpose. Keep in mind that I'm not very mechanically inclined at all, so there might be some steps in the process that are obvious to everybody else but not to me.
Do any of you all know what would be a good way to achieve this, and approximately how much it would cost?
