Bedside lamp with timer
2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I want my bedside lamp to turn on automatically each morning, a bit before I wake up.
I used to have an alarm clock for that, it broke. And using the existing lamp is less clutter.
Considering my near zero knowledge on electronics; my question is: would installing a timer parallell to an existing switch work?
When that switch is on the electrical current would be returning to the timer, is that safe? Am I thinking right?
I'm considering to just try it, if it burns it wasn't safe...

Evening /diy/ I need some suggestions...
My condominium has tall windows with single-pane glass that, even though I own the condo and everything within it, I cannot alter.
To put it short, I hear just about anything and everything on the street below, and it's bad. Any asshole man-child on a crotch rocket that rides by, any drunk POS yelling on the street below, the air conditioner unit on a building nearby that's gone bad and no one seems to want to fix, I hear it all.
I am desperate to find a way to deafen the noise in this place so that I can finally sleep an entire 8 hours for once. I don't need to be able to open the windows since I can use the AC relatively cheaply, but I want to be able to use the blinds.
So far the only solution that I have come up with is Indows, which are basically just acrylic sheets that are secured in the sash and can also help with any drafts I might have, and that sit behind the blinds. The problem is I don't really have an idea what those will cost given the sizes of each sash.
Would this be something I could make myself with the same outcome? I have access to 8' sheets of .125"(.118) thick acrylic and a half a million dollar CNC router that I can program. I just don't know what I would use for the edges to seal them as best as possible.
Does anyone have any suggestions for this? Should I just buy the Indows?? More pics incoming.
