This (I) am why we can't have nice things.

Some bastard in my work went and decided to install vacancy switches in all of the bathrooms set to a two minute timer.

Now, after looking through the documentation, there appears to be no way to turn the switches to constantly on; the most you can do is set the time out to 30 minutes. Which is fine, I guess, but there’s also a setting for shutting the lights out instantly once there’s nothing moving in front of the sensor.


Now, I could fix these by setting them all to 30 minutes, but in doing so, I would be accepting that installing these was a valid decision. Alternatively, I could make it my duty to ensure that these are always set to shut off instantaneously, thus fomenting insurrection against the tyranny of these stupid switches.
