Night lights and their benefits

Redditch Editorial 27th Sep, 2022   0

The night light, also known as ‘night orientation light’, mainly serves as an orientation point at night.

These special lights are perfect for bedrooms as a supplement to a bedside lamp.

For example, it makes it easier to go to the toilet at night, ie to give guidance. On the other hand, night lights are very popular with children who are afraid of the dark and need a light source. All features can apply to adults, as fear of the dark or problems falling asleep often occur in adult life.

· A night light can be used as a sleeping and reassuring aid for small children – and also as an orientation aid at night.

· As the eyes are sensitive in the dark, you can orientate yourself with the help of the night light without having to switch on the lamps. Most of the designs are simply connected to the socket. ·

Purchase criteria such as dimensions, weight and light source, as well as additional functions such as a twilight and motion sensor, can help you to choose a suitable night light.


The importance of a night light

Night lights are designed to shine all night long, which is not the case with table lamps. The light from a night lamp does not overload the eyes.

Especially for children who cannot fall asleep in the dark, leaving a table lamp on all night is not recommended. In addition, the light from ordinary lamps is much brighter than night lights. It is easier for a kid to fall asleep with a night lamp that will not keep him awake.

This particular light is better for the eyes, more discreet and does not frighten anyone during sleep. Night lights are not just something for babies or small children but also popular among adults.


Which night light is suitable for babies, children or adults?

From baby to adulthood, many versions come into question. To assist, this question should be answered before buying: Why do you need a night light?

· Sleep Aid

· Fear of the dark

· Reading

· Help with visiting the toilet

If young children, in particular, need help falling asleep, night lights with projections or soft sounds can be a help.

For example, some night lights project a starry sky onto the ceiling, or the colours change to gentle music. These products are designed to help children fall asleep, and if the infant is not afraid of the dark, you can turn the light off when the child falls asleep. Alternatively, you can install a timer for the night light to go off at a specific time.

If your goal is to find your way in dark spaces – a plug-in light can be very useful. But if you don’t want the light to shine all night long, a lamp with a motion sensor could be the solution. This item turns on only when it detects movement.
