socket controlled by light switch
I recently installed a ceiling fan where an old, ugly square recessed light was originally.We didn't want a fan with light kit. I want to have some outlets controlled by light switch so i can turn lamps off and on at switch when entering/leaving the room. There are dual switches, one used to control the ceiling light that now powers the fan. The other switch doesn't do anything. Former owners have changed out all the sockets in this room because they are a different color than the rest of the house sockets. One other bedroom has light switch controlled outlets. How do i change what i've got. Break tabs in every outlet in the room?
