Demand switches are usually installed in the circuit breaker
box of a home wiring system. The respective circuit is deenergized
each time when no electricity is drawn and all devices are turned off.
A control light indicates that the demand switch has been correctly
activated or deactivated. It is a very simple system. Usually bedrooms
and children's bedrooms are already connected to a dedicated electrical
circuit. Then the existing circuit breaker is simply replaced with the
demand switch, and the hookup by an electrician takes only half an hour.
(In North America, the demand switch needs to be installed next to the
circuit breaker box.)
From a building biology perspective, wiring (cables in walls and ceilings)
should always be upgraded to meet the latest code requirements. ELF
electromagnetic field exposure caused by outlets and light switches
is usually quite low. Therefore, shielded outlets are primarily
installed near a child's bed, etc.
Shielded cables offer protection against ELF electromagnetic fields.
In new homes or renovation projects, cables are often run through
electrical conduits or ducts and thus parts of them can be replaced.
Special electrical boxes for outlets and switches make the shielded installation complete.
By the way, a home wiring installation with ca. 500 m shielded cables only
costs roughly €25,000 more than common wiring.
