Do you have a wall in your house with half a dozen light switches in a row? I do. Which one turns on the outside light? Which one turns on the fan? Which one turns on the accent lighting? A bunch of switches in a row aren’t the most intuitive way to layout the switches.
I don’t know if this would work in your situation, but the floor plan light switch from designer Taewon Hwang makes sense to me. The switches are laid out like the floor plan of the home. A click on the kitchen turns on the light in the kitchen. A click on the area outside the front door turn on the outdoor lights.
This is a concept, not a real product. Go ahead and make it!
