The LOHAS LED Dusk to Dawn Bulb Sensor Light Bulb is a brilliant invention. Living in Florida, a good portion of the residents are ‘snow birds’ meaning that they only live here in the winter months. Some will have lights on timers, so that it looks as if the house is occupied, while others will leave a light on all the time.
There is now an alternative with this light bulb. It has the standard A19 shape and E26 screw base, which fits the regular light fittings. I tried it in several outlets, and it screwed in perfectly.
It is an indoor light bulb, and only uses 6 watts of electricity, and gives the equivalent of 40 watts. The best part is that you screw it in, and then as soon as it starts to get dark, it comes on. Then once the sun rises it turns itself off. So you only have the light on when it is needed. No wasted energy, or being on during the day, which might tip a burglar off.
From the Amazon website:
- ‘DURABLE & RELIABLE – With an astonishing life span of 30,000 hours of use, replacing your fixture is now a thing of the past. Good design, energy saving, no glare, no flicker. No lead or mercury. No UV or IR. CE, ROHS, FCC compliant. One year warranty.’
I can also see that this bulb would be great for an elderly person living on their own. It could be put in a hallway, or bathroom, making it a much safer place for them.
At $10.59, I think you get a lot of product for your money. I did receive mine for free, but
this is great if you have an elderly family member, or go out of town often.
