Doesn’t this company also make a version of the outlet covers that have a switch and the light sensor now?
SnapPower does, the company that originally created these. These aren’t that brand unfortunately, but hopefully work as well. I have both their creation of the ones in this sale, plus the light switch ones you speak of. Both are the greatest things ever in nightlight technology. They are a bit more expensive though per item.
Looks like guide light 2 plus is what they are called, but they are also $19 a piece, that’s insane. For me i would want to have a switch since it’s not like you can just unplug them so ill pass this time around, thanks for info though.
I’m guessing the outlet covers require a battery to power the LEDs, but I can’t find any mention of battery size/type in the description. Anybody know? Thanks!
I just watched a video that I found on Google - now I get it - the backside of the outlet cover has two ‘arms’ that make contact with the outlet terminals. The video said if you left one of these turned on for an entire year it would drive up your electric bill by 5 cents for the year.
I’d be extremely cautious with the outlet covers. They have tabs that contact the screws on the sides of the outlet. This is asking for trouble.
I’ve had mine for about a year now and have not had any problems with them. The only complaint I had was from a friend that stayed at my place. I had one in the guest room and they said that it was actually too bright (kept her awake at night so she leaned a pillow up against it).
What if you are the kind of worry wort that wraps electrical receptacles in electric tape for safety, do these still work?
Why would you want a switch since they have light sensors ?
You’re joking, right? You don’t understand the difference between an automatic sensor and a manual switch?
I’ll give you a hint: one you can’t control - the other, you can.
You’re joking, right? You don’t understand the difference between a question about the reason for wanting a switch and the function of a switch?
Actually some models have switches on them as well as a 2 step dimmer for light intensity. These look like they might have the same? If they do, the switch is both manual by control but also incorporates a light sensor into it.
The instructions say that the arms rest against the lower screws of the outlet. Mine are all centered and rest between the screws, preventing the light from getting a connection.
They don’t work.
