Save Money With Motion Sensor LED Lights


MSLPro Motion Sensing Socket PlugThe MSLPro Motion Sensing Socket Plug is a great way to save on lighting costs.

It uses a regular LED light bulb that puts out about 475 Lumens. That is about the same as a 40 watt incandescent bulb, which is plenty of light for most purposes.

I put the one we got in our kitchen. I had it by the door at first but I had to move it because the light shined into our bedroom, right on my husbands face. Not a good thing.

I moved it to the other side of the kitchen and it works really great. It lights up the whole kitchen well enough for most things. I do like having the overhead light on when I’m cooking though.

Motion Sensor Plug Light.

It has three different settings you can change, the motion sensing distance, the time it stays on, and whether it will come on in the daytime.

Since our kitchen is usually nice and bright during the day, I set it to only come on after dark. It will come on during storms or on cloudy days too, but mostly only at night.

I also set the distance so it would come on when someone walked into the kitchen, and to stay on for 3 minutes. The stay on timer counts from when it last detects motion.  You can set it to stay on from 25 seconds to 5 minutes. If you keep moving it will stay on.

I originally set it to only stay on for about 1 minute, but my husband wanted it to stay on long enough for him to get the coffee maker going in the morning, and the coffee maker is just out of range of the motion sensor on the other side of the kitchen (weird angles in this house).

He used to turn the light on and just leave it on so he could see when he came back down the hall. Now with this light we are saving electricity because it goes off while he isn’t in there. I really like that.

I would love to replace just about all the lights in our house with motion sensor lights.

Ever Had To Cut A Seat Belt?

Tire Gauge Multi-Tool Product.I have not ever had to cut a seatbelt for any reason, much less had to cut myself out of it in an emergency. I don’t ever want to have to either.

But if it was ever necessary I would like to be able to do so.

The Life Tire Gauge from Mountain Crest Products has a pair of scissors and a small saw, that can be used to cut your seat belt.

Of course you have to have the tool where you can reach it, if you need it, and you will have to remember it is there.

Folks do tend to forget things like that in emergencies. Finding yourself upside down in a ditch full of water, would tend to have a negative effect on most folks ability to think. Mine for sure.

But when you settle down and remember, having something to help you get out would be a Good Thing. It does have a pointy thing on the other end to use to break the window too.

In the meantime , you can use the flashlight and the tire gauge on a regular basis. The digital read-out is easy to see, and the light on the tire gauge makes it easy to see the tire stem, even in the dark.

It is made of hard plastic and metal. It seems sturdy.

I like having it.

Need Extra Light In Your Hall?

Rotating Motion Sensor LED light.This motion sensor night light is great for dark hallways. Or any spot that needs some extra light.

I put it in our hallway. It lights up when one of us walks close to it.

The light has already prevented me from setting on the dog a couple of times. She likes to lay in the hall, and it is hard to see her there when it is dark.

Motion sensor light in our hallway.

This light can be attached with screws, or with a sticky pad, which is what we did. We did it that way because we were not sure if it would be left there.

You can pull the light out of the holder and carry it somewhere with you if you need to. It also rotates a full 360°s, so you can point the light wherever you want it.

It will only come on when it is dark. So during the day it usually does not. Except when the doors are closed, or it is rainy, and no light is coming in at all.

It is a very bright light too. Lights up the hall and the bathroom.

You will need 3 AA batteries to put in it.

Light Up Your Porch With Solar Power


Solar Power Motion Light from Ankway.This Solar Motion Light from Ankway is wonderful.

It was easy to put up. It took my hubby less than 5 minutes to attach it to our porch. It took longer for us to decide where we wanted to put it.

We couldn’t put it in our first choice of spots. The problem was either a tree in the way, or the roof would block the sun part of the day. So we had to find a spot that would light the area we needed lighted, and get enough sun to keep the light working.

We ended up putting it on the “front” of the porch, instead of the end. It gets plenty of sun there (in the summer anyway), and it lights up the walkway and the porch.

Solar motion light from Ankway lighting up our porch.The picture shows the regular “dim” setting.

If someone walks up to the porch the light brightens for a few seconds. Or if one of us goes out the door onto the porch, it brightens. We placed the light so that it detects motion from anything coming up to the steps. That is the dangerous area.

I really like this solar motion light. I checked at 2 am once and the light was still working, so right now it is getting enough sun to stay on at least 5 hours.  The product description says the light will provide up to 3 days of non-continuous illumination on a single charge, so I expect it does work all night.

It might not stay on so long in the winter though. We get a of of sunless days here then and it might not stay charged up. We will have to see.

The motion light is not permanently attached either. You can lift it off, and carry it somewhere, and then put it back. So if you need to go out to the end of the yard, or into the shed, and forgot your flashlight, you can grab the solar light (assuming you can reach it).

It comes with a 12 month warranty.

I really like having this light on our porch. We don’t have to worry about whether we forgot to turn the porch light on now. This light is plenty to see where we are going, see to unlock the door, and see if someone comes up on the porch at night.

You can buy yourself one of these solar power lights on Amazon.com.

Flameless Tea Lights Are Safe For Parties

Flameless Tea Lights with Votive Wraps.Not only are Flameless Tea Lights safer to use during parties, they are safer during storms too.

After all if the wind really shakes your house, and knocks over a candle (or oil lamp), you might end up with your house catching fire.

These Flameless LED Tea Lights with Votive Wraps from Frux Home and Yard won’t cause that problem. They are safe to use around paper, furniture, kids, and pets.

They have a flickering light that looks like a real candle but it is really a LED light that operates off a lithium ion CR2032 battery. The batteries can last for up to 80 hours, which is a lot longer than a real candle would last.

These are the same size as regular tea lights, and will fit in any votive or tea light holder. The wraps that come with them are really pretty and I have been using the tea lights with just the wraps.

You can use these lights just about anywhere. They look really nice scattered around the living room in the evening. They are also nice scattered around the deck or yard when BBQing, or just sitting around talking.

Frux Home and Yard offers a lifetime guarantee too. They say:

 We’re so sure you’ll love our flameless tealights as much as we do, that we offer you a LIFETIME GUARANTEE. If for any reason you are not 100% SATISFIED, let us know and our customer service team will make things right.

I am really happy with these tealights.

Sylvania LED Motion Sensor Light

Disclosure: I bought these lights myself. The post does contain affiliate links.

Package ofLED Night Light with motion sensor.We live out in the boonies and it can get really dark out there especially when the moon is small or it is cloudy. Leaving a regular porch light on seems wasteful to me…it is only needed when we are leaving or coming home.

So I went looking for some motion sensor lights.

I checked a lot of different places including hardware stores, discount stores, and lumber stores.

There are a lot of motion sensor light systems out there. Many of them you have to hook up to the wiring. Some of them are BIG.

We didn’t really need anything big. Just enough light to see where to put our feet and be able to find the keyhole in the door.

So I ended up buying some of these LED Night Lights at Lowes.com.

I like them because they are portable. You can pretty much stick them anywhere (they come with a magnet and a sticker to put the magnet on a wall) and take them off the magnet if you need to carry it with you. Then when you get back just stick it back on the magnet.

They have motion sensors so they only come on when something or someone moves in the area the sensor covers. Which means they don’t stay on all the time. You can set them to stay on for 10 seconds or 60 seconds at a time. You can also just turn them on and they stay on till you set them back on auto.

These lights also have an auto on feature too so they won’t come on unless it is dark outside. So it doesn’t waste electricity(or battery life in this case).

They put out plenty of light too. We have two of them on our carport and one on the porch. The one on the porch is on the top of the door.

A picture of an LED motion sensor night light on my door.It comes on when you get close to the door so you can see the porch and the door locks easy.

And no one can come up on the porch at night without it coming on which is nice too.

I really like these little lights. They do need to be used under a roof. Rain/snow isn’t good for them. They work well anywhere you need some light and don’t want to have a light on all the time.

BrimLit Flexible LED Light Review

BrimLit Flexible LED Light Review


Picture of a BrimLit flexible LED light being used to read a map. I received a BrimLit flexible LED light to review. I wanted this for my hubby as he is always forgetting to take his flashlight with him and having to come back for it.

This battery operated LED light fits on the brim of a cap or hat. My hubby almost always wears a baseball cap. Which means he could put this light on his cap and as long as he has his cap he also has his light.

He loves this thing. He says it is not heavy at all. He actually forgets it is there until he needs it. He has used it several times in the evening when he has been out later than usual feeding the horses. It is really good for those times when he needs to use his hands and still have a light.

Picture of a BrimLit flexible LED light on one of my hubbys caps.

I even borrowed it a few times to go check on my chickens when we got home late and it was dark in the yard. It is really neat as you only have to look in that direction to have the light go there.

The light is really bright too. It has two levels low and high. The low setting is plenty bright enough for most things. I haven’t had to turn it up for anything yet. I don’t think hubby has either but the ability is there is you need it.

It comes with batteries already in it and they can be replaced. LED lights don’t use a lot of power so it might be a really long time before we need to replace the battery.  The batteries can be bought just about anywhere so that won’t be much of a problem when it happens.

The company offers coupon codes and discounts to those who are signed up for their emails. If you are interested you can sign up on the Lights for all Occasions main page. You can “like” them on Facebook or Follow @LightsForAll on Twitter too.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

GlitzSee Motion Activated Purse Light

GlitzSee Motion Activated Purse Light

The GlitzSee motion activated purse light isn’t all that big.
glitzsee motion activated purse light.

It does put out a pretty big light though!
lighted glitzee purse light.I tried to take some pics of it it in drawers but they didn’t come out too good. No way am I going to show anyone a picture of the inside of my purse! I’m not even sure what’s in there.

This is a great little light! It is really bright. I dropped it down into our junk drawer this evening when it was dark in the room and it lit the whole thing up really good.

It should be great for finding your phone or keys down in your purse. Or if you are coming home in the dark and forgot to leave the porch light on you can use it to find your keyhole!

It has a little hook so you can attach it to your keyring or to your purse or an id card where you can find it easy. I’m thinking about hooking it on the zipper of my purse.  It is battery operated and you just turn it on and give it a shake to make it light up.

As you can see it is gem shaped and gem colored too!  They now have heart shapes as well as three new colors!

Picture of different colors of GlitzSee Purse Light.

It comes in amethyst, aquamarine, ruby, peridot, and pink tourmaline. They sell for $14.95 each. For more information please visit the GlitzSee website.

The wonderful folks at GlitzSee sent me this purse light to review.  I recieved no other compensation.
