Thats exactly what im looking for. How exactly is something like this installed? Like a regular Breaker?If this is simply a safety issue (for instance with machinery not restarting after an outage), you can buy a commercial magnetic switch that will open during a power outage.
Most of the modern digital type timers have a back up battery inside them,We have chickens they need heat lamps on and water bowl heaters. The eletricity outage threw the timers for them off the correct times. My neighbor , who is elderly and watches our chickens often when i travel can not reach the timers (nor do i want him climbing to reach them). The outage throws the timers off and i want him to have the ability to just throw a breaker to restore power, even if the heat lamps need to stay on all the time. I cant afford to loose my chickens to the cold.
I dont really time to re-wire the coop right now because i will be traveling a lot these next few months.
