To explain the context, I have a lightbulb socket in the ceiling of my apartment, which I do not want to use, and a floor lamp which I do want to use. The light in the ceiling is controlled by a light switch, but no outlets are controlled by any switch.
I'm not sure if such a product exists, but what I would like is something that I can plug into the lightbulb socket (or just wire up like a light fixture), and something that I can plug into my outlet, such that when I use the switch to turn on the light, the outlet is powered on, and when I turn off the light, the outlet is powered off.
Essentially I want a wireless connection between my ceiling light fixture and an electrical outlet on the wall.
I don't want to change the actual wiring in the apartment as:
- I'm renting it, I don't own it
- It's expensive
- I may want to move the lamp in the future
Does something like this exist? Ideally I'm looking for something that will work with European plugs/voltages, but products for other regions would still be helpful.
