Safe nitrous use is just about using it intelligently, all there is to it.
With respect to the "switch thing" there are quite a few progressive nitrous kits out there. You have about the same level of control as you do with a meth injection kit, if you pay for it and want it.

I have always had single stage wet and dry kits, but I have certainly seen multi stage kits and other solutions to the light switch issue.

Cheapest I ever found around me was $50 a fill
Well the last time I bought a tank was before I bought my first WRX so that would have been back in 2002, so I am not sure how pricing has changed in a decade. < old fart...
