Finally got a stage built and decided to cover a full-length strip of material that did not take well to trim with a 12' rope light. I would like this light to be on before/after the movie but not during, as I think it would cause too much direct glare (anyone watching the screen with a rope light on? I haven't seen this yet but imagine it would be a hindrance). So, how could I easily control the rope light without walking over and pulling/inserting the plug? This is made especially awkward due to the plug-in being behind some curtains, in turn behind the stage. Any ideas?
