Product Overview

The Westek MLC166BC Motion-Sensing Light Control is perfect in laundry rooms, garages, basements, attics or any area where you need light. Lights will automatically turn on as you enter, eliminating the need to fumble for a switch in the dark. The control detects motion in a 120-degree radius and within 20 feet when mounted 8-feet above the ground. Easy installation, screw the sensor into any existing light socket, then install a lightbulb of choice into the control (up to 75 watts). Lights automatically turn off 10 minutes after motion is no longer detected. Compatible with compact fluorescent, LED or incandescent bulbs. AmerTac manufacturing brands offer complete lines of distinctive decorative home accent products that include trend-setting wall plates, money saving LED night lights, innovative under cabinet lighting and LED battery operated lights. More functional product lines include energy-saving timers, dimmers and lighting controls, as well as an extensive offering of consumer electronics accessories for the home and office.

Yes it was perfect. I was looking for one that would come on right when my disabled husband would step out of the bedroom to the hall when he’d get up in the middle of the night with his walker to go to the restroom. It stays on until he gets back to bed. Thank you for such a great product.
