Adding another Power Switch ?

Hi all, has anyone managed to add another power switch to the front of an enclosure ? I am sick of having to move the whole unit to turn it on & off !

Prusa i3 Mk3s+

Thanks 🙂

Move the whole unit? Why not just reach behind it? 

But I do get that that's a bit inconvenient, and in fact, each of my Mk3 and Mini printers are plugged into a smart plug, so I can say "Alexa, turn Prusa XYZ off" or "Alexa, turn Prusa XYZ on". Smart plugs work with any digital assistant, e.g., Google or Siri. Also a great way to turn them off when I'm away and see on my Wyze cam that there's something wrong with the print.

hmmm I dont use digital assistant's, they annoy me 😆 - my printer is in a Prusa-box enclosure and is up against the wall so I cant get my hand round the back without moving it, I mean its not a BIG issue but it would be nice to have a power switch at the front for convenience .. 😊

I also remember seeing variations on the lack enclosure models on thingiverse that have power switches built into the front.  They came with wiring instructions.
