We often forget to turn off the lights in our garage, and they run all night wasting power. At our old house, I'd solved this by installing a "pilot light" in the cover of another light switch that was clearly visible inside the house. I did this by drilling the cover and installing a small neon indicator light from Radio Shack, which I wired to the light circuit in the garage.
Before I do that again, does anyone know of a product that would provide the same function without the need for me to run wires through the walls? In other words, is there any commercial product that would remotely indicate that a light circuit was powered in the garage?
