Limit Switch for Garage Door

I am going to be wiring a new shop and I am going to be installing can lights. I want to put one over the garage door so when it is down I will be able to see. What I am looking for is a 110-15A limit switch that turns off the can light when the garage door is up and turns it on when it is down. Can someone direct me to a site and let me know what the correct switch is?

Positioned correctly it work great for your application. I only showed this link as it was the first one I came across with a price. Searching ebay yields all kinds of comparable switches.

Per your application, this would be my pick:


My constant project is my home which was built in 1947. We have remodeled almost all of it and added 1000 square foot in 2007. Lars Construction got me up to drywall and I did the rest.
