Alright. That makes sense. Im gonna kick myself for asking this, but how hard is it to wire the lights to a switch so I can turn it on and off rather than just unplugging it?
If you are going to have the lights on a timer, there is no point in installing a switch as well (unless you want the redundancy of being able to control it manually as well; of course, you could just pull the plug as well...)
If you want to install a switch, however, it is not much more difficult.
