Scott, what I do in all my closets is use motion sensors for the lights.
They can be had really cheap and if the door isn't completely shut, will
still "time out" and turn off.
Plus, all of these units are meant to handle 120vac.

Subject: need press-off switch
I'm trying to right the lights in our pantry to come on when the door
opens and off when it shuts, just like a refrigerator. I'd like to mount
the switch in the jamb.
can't find what I want at the stores here, don't see it on mcmaster and
they won't let you scrounge parts at the county recycling place. and
besides, I'm not sure if a switch from a fridge would handle the current
of the halogens I'm putting in the pantry.
this seems to be similar to what I'm after:
but, again, seems to be for an actual refrigerator.
anybody know where I could find one of these for a door? or barring that,
know how to make one?
thanks in advance.
