Hometech is introducing a whole new twist on Solatube daylighting. Thinking inside the tube, we integrated a small solar-electric system that collects the sun's energy by day to power a NightLight that automatically comes on by night. This unique Solar Electric Nightlight emits a soft, moonlight-like glow, which means you don't have to turn on harsh, bright lights for late night trips to the bathroom or to navigate hallways and stairs.
Hometech is always at the forefront of daylighting technologies, committed to providing smart and innovative daylighting solutions. Our Solatube skylights are perfect for harnessing natural light, but we still need light in the wee hours of the night too. This has led to the development of the new integrated Solatube NightLight.
The Solar Electric Nightlight is unique to the Solatube daylighting system and is unlike any nightlight in the market. This smart NightLight accessory is a solar panel that is mounted into a Solatube, collecting sunlight that Solatubes harness every day. This solar power recharges the intergrated smart NightLight, giving it the energy to automatically deliver a soft glow every night from overhead right until there’s daylight again.
What makes the Solar NightLight even more convenient is that it doesn’t need a switch to turn on or off – you and your little ones won’t have to fumble for the light switch during those late night bathroom trips.
Power-Saving Solar Electric Technology
The Solar Electric Nightlight captures electricity through solar panel technology. This energy is stored into two long-lasting AA NiMH 1500 mAh 1.2V rechargeable batteries, commonly available in supermarkets and hardware stores. One full day’s worth of charge will power two Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) that emit 8-10 Lumens of light. These lights automatically turn on when it gets dark – at no cost to your power bill!
The Solatube NightLight doesn’t rely on electrical power at all. It’s a clean, green, sustainable nightlighting solution, making it the perfect complement to our Solatube daylighting system.
