Home automation has some issues, a few I was thinking of was

* Partner acceptance
* the "what happens when it goes wrong" question
* what happen when you leave the property

To that end I was think of a device based around the two-way switching of a light that you typically have at the top and bottom of a staircase.

How about a module that has a load sensor to read and DPDT relay to flip light circuit's status?

* For a partner it would be an invisible upgrade
* If it goes wrong the existing two-way switching still works
* it can easily be removed and replaced with a cable joiner.
