Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for Dark Hallway We needed this for my elderly mother so she can see the hallway when getting up in the middle of the night. It's the right amount of light for a nightlight without being too bright. I like the hook which we use on a closet door and no installation is required. It's also great that it has an off switch so it doesn't have to go on and off all day when you don't need it - just turn it to "auto" at bed time and it's good to go. I put rechargable batteries in so I'll see how that works out. July 10, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good solution. Now when I walk into the bathroom at night I have a nice soft light and no having to find the switch. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great night lights When our 3 year old started to get up and go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, we needed a light that she could work since the light switch in the bathroom is too high for her to reach and there is not a power outlet in the room. We bought 2 of these to try in the hallway (also no outlet) and bathroom. After a couple of weeks, we decided to buy 3 more for our living room, second bath, and kitchen. The sensor works about 12-15 feet away and is sensitive enough that our 18 month old will trigger it (when it is placed about door handle height or lower). June 17, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great safety light especially for elderly first purchased on for myself for dark hallway at night and found it to be excellent since then have purchased 5 additional ones for elderly relatives who need a safety light but not all the time. When light is in motion sensor it stays on long enough that you don't have a fear of it going out before you get to your destination. The light is very bright and has a good range. It has 3 modes motion sensor mode, stays on like a flashlight and has an off position. Very convenient can be attached to a wall or comes with a hander that lets you hang it on a door knob. Best thing I have ever found. Would recommend it to anyone. September 18, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Night Light that Comes On When You Need It Have now bought 4 of these neat little night lights that come on only when they sense movement. Placed one on the bathroom vanity, one in the kitchen/dining room, gave one as a gift and now deciding where to put the fourth. Only $9.99 each. Look nice and give just the right amount of light to show the way. Turn off automatically after 20-30 seconds when no movement is sensed. Put batteries in, set the light on automatic and you're ready to go. Highly recommend. Great value for the price. January 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect Product This is just what I needed. I needed a nightlight for the bathroom for the cats (no windows in the bathroom) and this was perfect. I am saving on electricity and batteries since it is motion activated and only lights up when someone enters the room. It also has a setting to keep the light on should you choose. You can hang it on a doorknob (it comes with a hook) or place it on a table. I plan to purchase more for the rest of the house in the future. Also, my local Home Depot didn't actually carry it, but I ordered it online and was able to pick it up at the store. Pretty cool. September 16, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent motion activated night light The motion sensor works well to turn on the light and the light output is sufficient for night access. The light sensor usually prevents activation if the room is well light however if it activates it will not turn off immediately if other lighting is turned on when the light is activated. That's not a big deal but might shorten battery life a little unnecessarily. June 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outstanding product These lights are very sensitive and can pick up movement from about 15 feet away. They are bright enough to see clearly when moving around but not too bright if you have to get up in the middle of the night. Having the hangar handles make this useful in many room and you do not need to have a outlet attached to it. Baby friendly to keep out of reach! May 22, 2012
