Hello, I'm gaffing a short film soon in which we need to conduct an important lighting cue... we'll cut one set of lights and at the same moment, bring up another set to full power.

This is easy enough on a stage or with a genny because I'd just flip the breakers of the breaker box on cue. However we are going off house power (I believe 20A circuits). Can anyone recommend a piece of equipment that can accomplish this? I suppose an inline switch would work, but it would have to work for a 20A circuit and it's got to be safe.

Any ideas? Thank you.
