There was a time that outlet covers were just boring pieces of plastic that hid the metal housing and wiring of your outlets. Sometimes you could even find some ornate wooden covers or maybe even one with your favorite sports team’s logo emblazoned on it.
But one thing electrical outlet covers have never been known for was providing any sort of useful function other than decoration. With advancements in electrical technology, all that is changing! A simple thing like an outlet cover now has a purpose…an automatic, forever there, light!
Whether you want to call it a nightlight, accent light or guidelight…tiny LEDs have made it possible to put the lights directly into the covers, and have them draw their power (and very little power at that) directly from the outlet itself. Even better still, they are “light controlled”, so as the room darkens, the light comes on automatically. And since the light is built into the underside of the cover, both your outlets remain open for you to have access. There’s almost no reason at all why every outlet in every bathroom, hallway, kitchen or foyer shouldn’t have the soft glow of illumination coming from the outlets.
