Easy Hallway Lighting Solution

Easy Hallway Lighting Solution

How many times have you stubbed your big toe on the hallway table? Or stumbled around in the dark feeling for the light switch to find your way to the bathroom?


And you know the layout of your home better than anyone. What about your guests who can’t even remember where your bathroom is?


Lighting is one of the most well-thought-out aspects of a home. We spend a painstaking amount of time choosing just the right lighting for every room in our houses, making sure each fixture is the perfect complement to the room’s décor and provides the exact right amount of light. We want our lighting functional and to set a particular mood. But do you know what part of the house is almost always overlooked and under-lit?

The hallway…


Hallways and corridors are the darkest parts of the house, usually with no windows or natural light of any kind to illuminate this frequently used path. Check out the carpeting in any hallway and you will see it gets some of the heaviest traffic in your home. Not to mention that it’s where most families display their most prized possessions – their family photos. But tucked away in dark hallways, no one really notices them.


Many people, after moving into their new homes, notice the problem with the dark hallways after a few nights of finding their way through them. They notice the ambiance of the home changes as they approach the dimly-lit section. Sometimes they find solutions, such as a hall lamp, which adds more furniture to a small space. Other times, they pay thousands of dollars to install light fixtures that would have been cheaper to install in the building process.


Another solution might be night lights. But, if you’ve spent hours and hours of precious time planning your lighting and aesthetics of the home, the last thing you want to do is plug some cheap plastic-covered light bulbs into your sockets.



So what’s the solution?


How about a product that utilizes electrical current you already have channeled? Something extremely affordable and cost-efficient that you can install yourself. Why spend another thousand or more to hire an electrician to re-wire and install more light fixtures?


Here at SnapPower, we’ve spent countless hours and resources coming up with simple, cost-effective solutions to everyday problems homeowners face. We’ve created products that not only aesthetically enhance the home, but serve a much-needed function as well.


Our Guidelights are the ideal solution for dimly-lit paths and hallways. These simple, streamlined electrical outlet covers come to you ready to install with detailed six-step instructions anyone can follow.


Hallway Lighting In Seconds


These sleek outlet covers take up no extra space and come in several colors to match your sockets. The LED lights along the bottom of the cover illuminate your dark spaces, leaving your plug-ins free for use. A sensor on the cover uses the surrounding lighting to signal the lights on or off, making it effortless as well as beautiful.


But what about the cost of operation? Will it use extra electricity? It may surprise you, but Guidelights cost less than 10¢ a year to run! How’s that for energy efficiency?


How do they work? When you place the Guidelight over the outlet, two power prongs in the back slide over the outlet screws to draw power. Innovation at its finest!


Easy Hallway Lights


Bottom line…if you’re looking for a lighting solution that adds a high-end flair to your décor, costs next to nothing to operate, and keeps your outlets completely free for use, you can’t go wrong with SnapPower Guidelights. Order yours today!

Chicago Tribune: The New Household Standard

The New Household Standard

What if outlet cover plates doubled as night lights, thus freeing up prime real estate? That's the idea behind the SnapRays Guidelight, a sleek little product that recently came on our radar. Created by SnapPower — a Utah-based startup that invents lots of “Oh, duh!” solutions for powering lights and electronics — the Guidelight is a replacement outlet cover with built-in LED night lights and a sensor that automatically turns them on/off based on how dark it is. It's one of those products that make so much sense we can't believe it's not already a household standard.
