Have you given any thought to how you're going to control them? If you want more that just manual on/off operation, and you're going to install a few, it strikes me that an Arduino would be ideal. Not that I've ever used one.
What is an Arduino?

It basically lets you switch things on and off, or detect when things are switched on and off. So with smoking chimneys, or lights in buildings, you could switch them on and off at regular or random intervals, all at different times. You do have to have some programming knowledge but there are huge collections of pre-written applications.
