Yes, there are fully enclosed switch cover boxes available, with a squeeze, to-open-cover, for switch access. They do come in several colors: white, almond, and clear(translucent). They attach with the same screws that hold the individual switch to the plate. Locating a store that sells them, is the hard part... jh2021

This guard works great for my child's room as her light switch is near her crib (see pictures). The guard covers two sides of the switch so she cant put on a 'light show' for us before/after naps/bedtime. After installing, she tried to turn the light on but eventually gave up. Without her flicking the light on and off constantly, the guard also ensures the switch isn't damaged. They make it a little more difficult for adults to turn on the light but it is still manageable. I am glad these were available because we cant move the crib over as she then pulls books off the shelf. The guard was very easy to install and they use the existing screws on the light cover. You don't even have to take the cover off to install it.

This was a fast, easy, affordable solution to make sure that my smart lights stay in the "on" position, while giving me easy access to override if desired. Sturdy and well-made and MUCH more attractive than the piece of masking tape I was using! Highly recommend. This would also be a good child-proof option. One side is open (easy access for adult fingers) and the other side is closed so you can position however is best to facilitate adult access and/or minimize child access.

What can I say? These white switch covers that control some motion activated flood lights work. Not sure if they’ll fade with time and sun exposure like many white plastics items do as they are new.
