In our current temporary accommodation I was looking for something to light up a hall way based on motion.
Now, as home automation enthusiasts we probably all start to think of Z-Wave or Hue Zigbee motion sensors and hooking them up to smart bulb or a table lamp attached to a plugin module. But wait.
One of our favourite little automations in our last home was this PIR bulb, simple, but brilliantly effective and reliable.
So I looked around for an inexpensive all-in-one solution for our hallway and found this Auraglow plug in PIR motion sensor LED night light with fixed 30 second timer for a little over a tenner.
We’ve had it running for a few weeks now and its perfect for the job. Sometimes the smart move is to go with something really dumb.
- The Auraglow Motion Sensor Plug In Night Light is ideal for lighting hallways, landings, walkways and bedrooms
- The light will automatically activate when you pass within 5 metres of the sensor providing a warm glow of light for 30 seconds with each activation
- The light will remain on whilst motion is being detected and the daylight sensor installed ensures the light only operates in darkness
