Prize should be the installation of these switches once we know what the hell they do!

could it be a remote ceiling fan or light switch? Mine has one. Turn everything in the room on, fans, lights, etc, then turn the wall switch off and see if anything turns OFF.

On my fiver the one in the bed room is the rope lights the one in the kitchen also for rope lights on toe kick the one in the kitchen is used the most for a night light and it is starting to die seems to start at one end soon they wont work at all. Possibly yours have died already and you switch them on and nada. Check and see if you can feel the rope lights at the front lip of cabinet up in corner where you can't see them mine are tight to the corner and you only can feel the round tube they are in.

Why would they put the switch for the scare lights in that location?!!! doesn`t seem logical. so if you need light outside you need to run into the bedroom to turn on the lights?

I agree, only explanation I can think of is if your in the bedroom and you hear a noise or something, then you can hit the switch above your head and scare the s#$t out of them, same at the front in the kitchen.
We may leave them on at our permanent site for outside nite lights as the only other outside lite is the amber main door lite.

I was going to guess that it started the black tank digester.
