    Would anyone have any interest in a touch light switch kit? The kit would include all the nessary parts and instructions to build a project that would replace a standard residential light switch using a capacitance sence IC and relay. I would also like to possibly include some other electronics that would light an emergency light in case of a power outage, or network many switches together and toggle them all from one central location.

    I'm asking really to see if there would be any sort of demand for a kit or already build product like this. I have schematics designed already but would be open to any design suggestions too.

    Does selling this type of product as a kit mean that you do not have to pass any of the UL or CE type tests for safety, if they are required at all?
