I recently got my hands on infrared sensor led lights from Tecknet and thought I’d give my thoughts on how the led lights worked, and if they’re worth checking out. Here is my led sensor light review.
If you’re like me and you find you often get up during the night for a drink of water, or a bathroom break, then you want to check out these led sensor lights.
They may be just what you’re looking for in terms of lighting the way without the need to switch on the main lights.
What you get in the box:
Comes in frustration free packaging, a simple cardboard box with the TeckNet logo and unit description.
Included is a warranty card and user manual.
A few strips of Velcro, and the units themselves, two of them.
The LED sensor Lights need batteries
They take 3 AAA batteries each, which aren’t included, but I expected that so it’s no issue. And of course, the items are so lowly priced, I wouldn’t expect batteries.
Description of the LED senor lights
The led lights themselves are very neat, sleek and the tecknet logo is a light grey, which helps with the aesthetics a bit.
I have a few other tecknet led lights, they have black text on the white unit, which is a bit too much I thought. This grey text colour is much better.
I put the one in the kitchen, under the cupboard. I like the idea of walking into the kitchen for a glass of water without going through the ‘hassle’ of switching on lights.
These sensor led lights offer sufficient light for me to see where I need to go.
I have another set of led lights (with a sensor) under a second cabinet, against the wall, so my entire path is lit right up to the kitchen sink.
Suggestions for placement of the led sensor light:
Before you make your placement permanent, I’d suggest sticking the lights to a wall with Blue Tak.
This way you can move the lights around allowing you the opportunity to find the perfect placement before making it semi-permanent.
I’d also suggest not sticking the Velcro onto the battery cover, since you’ll need to recharge the batteries at some point.
Stick one strip in the middle and you’re good to go. The led units are so lightweight, a single strip will do just fine.
You’re given 4 sets in the box, but I think you’ll only need two.
Led Sensor Lights with a Day/Night Sensor
This is a great function to have, after all, we don’t need light in the day, and with this function, the battery life is extended.
These led units only come on when it’s quite dark, basically, when you actually need some extra light.
What do these light cost?
You’ll be pleasantly surprised by the cost of these led lights. Sure they don’t come with batteries, but for the units themselves which contain a pir or motion sensor, you’re almost getting them for nothing!
Take a look below and see for yourself.
Any other shapes and Sizes?
The LED lights don’t just come in a rectangle shape, you also get them in a round shape too. This could be particularly useful for a staircase for example.
Below you can see an example of what you can expect.
I’ve been placing led sensor lights all over my house for a while now, and it’s made such a difference with respect to having a little bit of light to guide your way without the need to put on the main light.
For example: going to the bathroom, getting some water and navigating through the house at the dead of night. It may not sound like a huge thing, but it’s the subtlety that I quite enjoy.
Of course, this is only my opinion, but I’ve found that it made things much better.
Gone are the days of shielding your eyes when the main lights get switched on, getting used to the stark difference between the dark and light.
I think these Tecknet led sensor lights are the perfect addition for any household, I already have 4 dotted around my house. I’m sure there will be more coming soon.
