Tip #8 Automation - Do it before you lose it

Pyroelectric ("Passive") InfraRed Sensors ... PIR sensors

Humans are forgetful, easily distracted, haphazard, and other things too.
When building your power house, use photo-sensors, motion-sensors, timed-switches, etc.

The "lights", for instance, are the easiest items to automate. virtually all of the lighting in this building turn on and off by themselves. If the lights sense no activity for whatever period I pre-determine in the configuration (usually five minutes), they simply "know" to turn themselves off. Some of the more important lighting requires an extra apparatus that permit the manual control and override of the motion-detection system.

Fact:
You are going to get old (hopefully), and forgetful (probably), and therefore some safeguards in addition to switches and sensors should be amply considered.
Fool-proof and maintenance-free is the Goal.


*** Time restricts my finding a better place within this website for the following blurb.


DC electricity flows from negative charge to positive charge. (*see: https://van.physics.illinois.edu/qa/listing.php?id=583 )

Our switches might be backwards.

In AC electricity, it is said that the positive wire is the codes-approved wire which is directed to a switch.

However, in a DC configuration I'm wondering why we would copy the AC dictates to our loss.

Since the DC Battery Bank issues negative electrons that don't complete a circuit until it meets up with one or more of the positive, then simply keeping the negative electrons contained between the battery bank and switch could save energy that might be better purposed elsewhere.


Scenario:

1.) A battery (with positive and negative leads)

A switch that is a few feet away from the battery bank

A load or appliance that is a considerable distance beyond the switch

= Needless waste



Whereas If I stop the energization of the wire at the switch (a few feet away from the battery bank vs 125+ feet), then are we not eliminating not only potential hazards, but also conserving energy by not losing our voltage and current due to having a long line energized at all times.

Oddly enough, the only analogy that came to mind is, when we pee or poop, it's good that the stuff isn't directly right at the hole, but is stopped further inside somewhere (thereby conserving our energy to make it to the bathroom).

Excess energized wire is loss, also referred to as "wire-loss" OR (I like this one), "Phantom Energy loss/consumption", it's also referred to as "line loss", "heat loss", etc.
