Here’s some more eco friendly home automation designed to give you that warm fuzzy, ‘saving the planet’ feeling. The Eco Sensor Lamp is a compact florescent bulb with the usual long life and low energy features married to a PIR sensor and timer.
While it may be a little dumb in the grand scheme of today’s smart homes, its truly automated unlike many other systems. Once movement is detected the bulb can be set to remain lit for anything from 10 seconds to 5 minutes. Available in bayonet and screw fittings now at under £16…
“Adding to the eco-friendliness of this CFL bulb is a built-in infrared motion sensor that will automatically turn the bulb on when it senses movement nearby. A couple of settings dials allow you to program how long the bulb will stay on for, from 10 seconds to 5 minutes, or specify one of 5 different luminance levels when it’s activated. The bulb is rated for 8,000 hours of use, and I’m going to assume/hope the motion sensor can be switched off when you need it to stay on. ~$25 (£15.98) each from KJ Global.”
