I put velcro on the back of the remote and the other side on the table saw fence and on the vac hose which hangs from the ceiling in the center of the shop.

I made a master/slave switch for each of my machines which all have their own dust collector. The programmable ones were designed by a friend and are set up to switch a few seconds before the machine starts up and switches the D.C. off several seconds after the machine is switched off. The other type are made from modules bought on the net and switch on/off with the machine.
