The dual sensor bed light is essentially the same as the single sensor bed light with a few minor differences beyond the additional motion sensor. Both the single and dual sensor kits include two 5’ light strips, but in this dual-sensor version each strip is connected to its own motion sensor rather than two connected to a single motion sensor. There is still only one single-lead power adapter, but there is an additional splitter to allow the adapter to power two sensors and LED strips in different locations.
Cable management becomes an issue since there is a good length of cable from the power adapter, then long cables on each end of the splitter, plus cable on the sensor and the light strip. In our installation the sensors are mounted on the side rail near the head of the bed on either side of a king size bed, with an available power outlet on the wall at the head of the bed near the middle. Perhaps some installations would not have power so readily available at the right location, but we found that we had at least 5’ of unneeded cable making a mess under the bed.
I am guessing the huge amount of excessive cable could be cut and spliced to more efficient lengths by someone with the right electrical experience, but there are no instructions or guidance for this in the manual so I did not feel comfortable cutting the cable to reduce the clutter. In the end I just bundled the cables and left them loose under the bed out of sight.
The sensors work well and it is nice to have the extra light when you have to get up at night to check on a baby or go to the bathroom. The one downside we have found is that we have to keep our dogs out of the room at night or they are agitated by the lights turning on and off and begin to pace, making the problem worse and eventually waking us up. If you don’t have pets then this won’t be a problem, but if you do it is something to be aware of and plan ahead for.

Installation was pretty simple even though there were a lot of wires. The adhesive on the motion sensors and LEDs is very sticky so make sure you test out where you are going to place everything before you commit. I noticed some discoloration on one of the wire connections and some wire looked dirty like it had been used before, so I'm not sure if the set I got was returned and repackaged or what. The only hard part getting it set up was placing the sensors in such a way that they didn't trigger when you moved the comforter or sheets. I ended up putting some electrical tape on the top portion of the sensors to limit its upward range and now it only triggers when we put our feet on the floor. The timer can be set to keep the lights on between 30 seconds and 10 minutes but its just an imprecise dial; I would've liked something more exact. The sensors feel kind of flimsy and the ac plug is large. I think this product is still cool and functional in spite of the issues I noted.

I love this product. I got it for my parents who are aging and getting up late at night. Install was 5 minutes and you can change the time it's on from 30 seconds to ten minutes. Goes on via motion detector. It's great

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JunC Very interesting product
This is very interesting product. Idea itself is great and it was nicely implemented. and on the top of this idea, they made a high tech product. Since I have young kids who come to my bedroom over night, I put this under my bed and it works great. the sensor range is good enough so light is turned on in proper range.
However, you need to know that the light is really bright. I would wake up when the light is turned on. So eventually, I moved this deep inside of the bed and used bed skirt to cover the light. Even as a deco light, it is beautiful.
One small negative fact is that it would turned on whole day, even on the day. Since the sensor is under the night table, it does not know the time. I used a timer to solve this issue and it works perfectly.

This is a pretty cool concept -- motion-sensor lights installed under the bed, so that when you inevitably get up in the middle of the night to visit the potty, you don't whack your shins on the chair your wife moved just before bed. The good news -- works as advertised! The light is dim enough to handle in the middle of the night, but bright enough to illuminate the path. The only downside is that they turn off before you return to bed...

This product is much brighter than I anticipated and the color is between warn and cool. The LEDs are attached to a flexible rubber like material with adhesive pre installed on the back. Just peel off the protective paper and stick to the surface of your choice. I don't think the glue is very strong and the product may not stay adhered long term. The included motion sensors detect movement not body heat so if your blanket is within sensor range and moves the lights will come on. The sensor has a 120 degree spread and picks up movement up to 13 feet. There is also a duration timer that can be set to leave the lights on for 30 seconds to 10 minutes after motion is detected. The strips are five feet long (it includes two) and they can be cut in key locations to shorten the length. The kit is versatile because you can use one or both motion sensors and you can connect the two LED strips together into a ten foot length if desired. If you use a bed skirt it may block the light.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYgurl Seriously the BEST safety idea EVER!
I am VERY pleased with this incredible tool that makes for use as a safety product AND a design element item!
I am disabled and both going to bed in the dark, and getting up at night can be difficult to navigate depending on how much moonlight is filtering through my windows. Simply put, now I don't have to feel ike the only time I can easily pull this off is once a month during the full moon!!! LOL
The installation is pretty straight forward and easy. It does require you to be on the floor under your bed for a little bit of time, but it's really not difficult. The lights come with clips and adhesive, that go onto your bed frame and allow the lights to simply be clipped into them, allowing for ease of instal and removal (if and when it may be needed).
*perfect amount of light
*gives me an INSTANT feeling of safety in an otherwise pitch black room
*Item can actually be worked into different areas other than just an underside to a bed - perhaps an entryway, or closet or even possibly a dark hallway - as long as you don't mind seeing the light tubes!
*is a Godsend if an emergent situation arises! I love that these lights go on right away when your feel hit the ground! It gives me extra secure feelings in the middle of the night!!!
*love that it comes on to save me and my dogs from stepping on them when I enter the room after my hubby and pups have already gone to bed. I'm sure that their tails are VERY appreciative of these lights now!!
My "Cons" if you want to call them that
*they sometimes go on during the day when motion is sensed.
*they are sensitive at picking up any motion - meaning my pups activate it - we did get used to it, but it took a bit to get used to this at first, as the lights are bright and can startle an unsuspecting sleeping person
*occasionally both sides light up even though only one side has motion showing up. Nothing big, but it does happen
*the lights are a bit bright (we hung ours a bit more farther pointing 'up' into the bed frame to allow the light to gently filter out from a bit farther under the bed to tone it down - it would be really great if it had a high, medium and low settings, to allow for different brightness allowances according to each persons preferences. One becomes acutely aware of this feature when it is the deep dark black of night, and the dog wakes up to move his spot, and the room lights up.
The good definitely outweighs the 'bad' (I hate calling them bad - as they are more of an instance of getting used to it - except for the daytime illuminations)
