If you leave overhead lights on at night in certain rooms or hallways, now there’s a better, energy-saving solution. Pick up a simple LED night light with a sensor and plug it into the wall in the bathroom, your child’s room or near your front door for arriving home at night. This gadget only uses a mere 10% of the energy of traditional incandescent bulbs, and it also shuts off automatically when it senses either natural sunlight coming in or the closest main source of light. With a new night light boasting a lifetime of more than 10 years, you don’t have to be afraid of the dark – or your energy bill – anymore. (Approx. $7)


Lighting accounts for 12% of home energy costs so why waste energy costs on lights left on in your home? An easily-installed motion sensor can automatically switch lights on when you enter a room and switch them off when you leave. This helpful detector can help reduce your energy use and costs, giving you peace of mind. ($20-$30)


Worried you forgot to turn off your lights before leaving the house? With a smart LED bulb, you can control and adjust your home lighting from your phone or automate it to adjust to your daily routine! Not only are they smart, but these LED bulbs are energy efficient; on average, they last 35-50 times longer and use 75% less energy than incandescent lighting! (Approx. $15)


Sick of stringing a rope of lights around your home, only to find that they don’t work? With solar powered LED lights, you can save time, money and plenty of hassle. Stake the solar panel into the ground to add easy and beautiful lighting to your home. Once the sun goes down, the lights will illuminate and can run for 8-12 hours at a time. Best of all, you won’t have to worry about plugging them into an outlet or hooking up extension cords! ($15-$30)
