Xodus Innovations BL404 Mini Guide Lights, 4 Pack: A Pack of 4 Quarter-Sized LED Lights with Reusable Adhesive Backings

Do you fumble around looking for a certain light switch at night? Does your home have stairs that are poorly lit causing you to nervously use them at night? If so then the 4 Pack of Mini Guide Lights from Xodus Innovations is your simple solution. These tiny LED lights (roughly the diameter of a quarter) emit a low glow to illuminate an object at night making it easier to see. Use them to illuminate the steps in a stair case or stick one above the bathroom door knob to easier see it in the middle of the night. Each one features a photocell sensor that will automatically illuminate the light when its environment becomes dark. The Mini Guide Lights come with a reusable adhesive backing that can be wiped with a damp cloth and dried when dirty or if moving to a new location to help restore adhesion. Each individual Guide Light is powered by 1 CR2032 battery which is included and comes pre-installed in the light. Upon opening the packaging, simply remove the plastic tab to activate the battery. The battery will last up to 1 year with regular usage or less with continuous use, such as placing in a closet or cabinet. Read more

Deck Light Auto-Illuminates at Night and Increases Brightness when Motion is Detected

September 9, 2012 Leave a comment

The multi-talented Motion Sensing Deck Light from Xodus Innovations provides nighttime accent lighting with the ability to flood an area with light upon detecting motion. Like the Xodus Low Glow Deck Marker, this light uses a photocell sensor to automatically activate its low glow accent light at dusk and subsequently turn it off at dawn. However, it comes with the added feature of a 160° motion sensor that has a 30ft range. The motion sensor activates a bright LED upon detection to provide better lighting of the covered area. At the base of the Motion Sensing Deck Light are 2 switches to allow for customization depending upon the application of the light. The switches let you choose between high or low brightness and long or short duration. When long duration is set the bright LED will stay on for 5 minutes making it ideal for use where people may gather or hangout for an extended period of time, such as a porch. On short duration the bright LED will activate for 30 seconds making it more ideal on a walkway or stairs where people typically need additional lighting but do not linger. In both modes the sensor will check for motion before turning off to ensure people are not left in the dark. The light is powered by 3 C batteries which will last for an average of 1 year but that can vary depending upon settings and use. The light is weatherproof for outdoor use and it should be installed at a height tall enough to allow the LED to cover the amount of space desired. For instance, the closer it is to the ground the less surface area it will light up.

September 8, 2012 Leave a comment

Xodus Innovations BL200 In Cabinet Light, WhiteThe In Cabinet Light from Xodus Innovations is a quick-fix for adding light to just about any dark corner, closet or cabinet of a home. It’s powered by 4 C batteries (sold separately) allowing it to operate wirelessly without having to rely upon an AC outlet which in-turn makes it a great emergency power outage light. It has 2 different operating modes to choose from depending upon the application of use. The automatic mode is for use when installed in a cabinet or closet. In this mode the light will automatically illuminate as soon as the sensor detects a rise in lighting levels which will occur as a door or cabinet is being opened. When in this mode the LED light will shut off after 20 seconds to conserve power however, pushing of the manual override button next to the LED will provide an additional 60 seconds of light.

For added ease of use and convenience this override button glows in the dark to make locating it simple. The second operating mode is manual which will disable the light sensor so that the LED light is turned on by pushing the devices manual button next to the devices LED swivel head (same push-button for manual override in auto mode). Once the desired application of use has been chosen the LED light can be mounted quickly and easily without screws. A magnetic mounting plate sticks to most smooth, flat surfaces via an adhesive sticking pad. It is important to note that surface should be cleaned and free of residue before applying adhesive pad. Because the mounting plate connects to the Cabinet Light magnetically, it can be removed hassle-free for changing of batteries or to be used as a flashlight. The In Cabinet Light can operate for up to 100 continuous hours with fresh batteries or up to 1 year with regular use. Read more

LED Light Fixture Uses Renewable Energy, Dims and Brightens With the Sun

Solectric RC24001 Day-Light 1300 Solar Panel and LED Light Fixture Kit
The Day-Light 1300 Solar Panel and LED Light Fixture Kit from Solectric is unique in that it actually emulates the characteristics of a skylight. In the morning, as the Sun rises, the solar panel begins to slowly feed the two LED light fixtures with current. This causes the LEDs to softly light the area reflecting the similar characteristics of a skylight in the early morning of the day. As the day continues onward and gets sunnier outside, the LED light fixtures will increase there brightness up to a color temperature of 5500K, essentially emulating daylight. The LED light fixtures will then dim down as the Sun sets and eventually shuts off once nighttime has arrived. Simply put, the Day-Light 1300 Solar Panel and LED Light Fixture Kit acts as a skylight with the benefits of never having to cut a large hole into your roof. The light output is equivalent to a 10″ tubular skylight or two 60 watt incandescent light bulbs.

The technology implemented within this kit utilizes 100% renewable energy which saves energy and money. This kit comes with everything needed to get started and makes a perfect addition to remote, “off the grid” locations and can also be used in an RV, home, cabin, shed, garage, and just about anywhere else you need some light because this kit is all self contained and requires no external power beyond the Sun to fully function. However, this kit can still take advantage of an external power source when used in junction with the Solectric RC22012 AC Adapter. This allows the LED light fixture to turn on and off, acting as a regular light for when there is little to no Sun such as a cloudy-rainy day.
