No more bathroom trips in the dark with the Vansky motion-activated LED bed light

Navigating to the bathroom in a dark bedroom can be tricky when you don’t want to turn on a bright lamp and disturb your bedmate.  Having a continually-lighted nightlight in the bedroom isn’t an ideal solution either, because being exposed to light while you’re trying to sleep isn’t good for you.  What you need is a motion-activated nightlight, and you need it to shine on the floor to light your path.  What you need is the Vansky motion-activated bed light.

This LED strip uses 3M adhesive to attach to your bed frame.  It has 45 warm-white LEDs (color temperature 2700-3000K) and a built-in “human body passive infrared” (PIR) motion sensor that turns the lights on when it senses your movement.  A timer turns the lights back off in 30 seconds – 10 minutes (adjustable).  Be aware that the PIR sensor needs a dark room to operate correctly.

You can use the Vansky light strip other places where you need light: on stairs, in bathrooms, or under cabinets or furniture.  The strips are rated for up to 100,000 hours of lighting, and they come with a one-year guarantee.  The Vansky motion-activated bed light is $17.99 at Amazon.

  1. Wish hotels had these. A few years back, at a training conference in Detroit, the ONLY street light from the hotel parking lot just had to land on the bed. I get up in the middle of the night to close the blinds different, turned around in the dark and did the “Dick Van Dyke Show” trip over the ottoman in front of the chair, and my bottom lip hit the night stand. Yep, you want to see something funny, go down to the hotel lobby with blood all over your shirt holding a towel to your face. Trip to the ER and 4 stitches later.
    Maybe that is why the Doubletree was giving me a HUGE amount of free cookies all week LOL.

    1. I don’t know, Betty. I saw the Amazon answer, too, and it sounds like they would trigger it when they walked by. Two people said their cats did trip their lights, so it sounds like you’d be in for a light-filled night if they prowl around a lot.
