Here's a clever Idea, a Coded Switch which only contacts in the direction of rotation. So an easy way to get round using encoders. Here's the Data Sheet

Here we will be looking at common components and trying out a few ideas to cover solutions to problems we find in trying to get FS to do something.

Also lighting control, cabling, wiring and examples of switch circuits.

Any ideas welcome.
