Light switches are among the electrical components that most people usually overlook. However, they are an integral part of electrical systems in every home, office and business. Light switches are used to control the lights by powering them on and off. Today, there are new models of light switches that can provide more than just the on and off functions. Some light switches can also regulate the brightness of light fixtures.
