“ Brand: Lindam / Safety Type: Night Lights „
I have only recently bought this nightlight, but I should have done it long ago. My son is one now, and although we don't need the nightlight to comfort him, we DO need it to help us see what's going on in his bedroom at night!
A lamp is too bright and we can't just flick on the room light for the same reason, but the light from this nightlight is just bright enough so that, when the rest of the house is dark, you can see everything well enough to locate a dummy on the floor, or a packet of wipes and a new nappy etc...
We haven't had much need for the sensor, then, as we tend to turn the light on and off at the wall, but on the occasion that someon else has put our son to bed and forgotten to switch off the nightlight, it seems to have worked exactly as it was supposed to.
In the event that the bulb goes, it appears to be easy enough to send off for a replacement, although I would advise sending off for a replacement before you need it as it is all done by post. So if you can't live without the nightlight, don't be caught out without a spare bulb!
All in all, i can't really find a fault in it.
~Tell me all about the Lindam Night Light! ~
Lindam have a range of child care items that can help mums and dads with all kinds of baby and child care needs. From stair gates to microwave sterilising items, Lindam have something to suit. Its a name that is well recognised amongst parents and one that can mostly be relied upon.
As we have had a variety of Lindam products in the past, when we were looking for a simple night light to use to very softly light the entrance way between the landing and our childs room we went for a Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light. The light we have was £6.99 from a local retailer and we thought that was a fair price at the time of purchase.
When purchasing our Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light we noticed that there were either multi pack sets as well as single lights. The item we initially bought was the single Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light which is a slightly more detailed looking light than those in the multi pack. You can expect to pay between £6.99 to £8.99 for this product.
Our Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light has a fairly bright sky blue base to it with a lighter off white frosted looking top shade. The design of the light is in a kind of tubular shape, similar to a capsule type thing. It has a simple trio of yellow stars on the top set to one side and it looks neat and compact. It gives off a soft, yet adequately bright light effect.
~How does the light perform?~
To use the Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light all you need to do is plug the light into a free plug socket let the light do its thing. If the Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light is within a normal room setting it will come on once the light in that room begins to fade away.
The light has a light and pleasant glow to it which can be reassuring to both you and your baby. We placed our Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light between the landing and a room as we didn't want our child to be bothered by too much light, but we did want a small amount of light to filter through. We found that by placing the Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light in the right place, it gave just the effect we hoped for.
The beauty of the Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light is that you do not need to set a timer for it to go on or off. It works with the light in the room. This was something we found very helpful at times like afternoon nap time, when a simple drawing of the blinds or curtains slightly would ensure the Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light would come on and give off its simple and effective mood enhancing glow.
The light we bought worked very well and we had no problems with it at all. In fact we liked it so much that we also bought a multi pack set for use along the hallway once we felt the need arose. After all as children begin to be able to climb out of their cotbed or bed you do wonder if you need to factor that into the safety measure in the home. We felt the lights were a sensible measure to install.
~How brightly does it shine?~
The light this Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light gives off is not all that bright when used in larger rooms or hallways, however if it was to be placed too close to a sleeping child it may appear too bright and interfere with sleep patterns. This is something to factor into the placing of the night light.
The E14 watt bulb in the light can be replaced if need be and the light is made so that the bulb is long lasting when in use. The product is made of a light yet durable plastic. It can be used as a night light not just for babies or toddlers but as something for older children or even adults who prefer some form of lighting in the hall way during the night.
~How do you rate it?~
To rate the Lindam Dusk to Dawn Night Light, I feel it ought to get a 4 star rating. Its a good little idea that works well, but I would urge anyone fitting one of these to think wisely about where to place it when its in use. Its not a good idea to put it within easy reach of a small child at all.
It can be very comforting to know that there is some form of very gentle lighting on in case your child wakes during the night. The fact that this comes on and goes off without the need for programming or timing makes this very handy. We have found the light works well when placed in the right situation.
I have had this lindam light for a good three years now. It was bought from argos and cost only £12.99. I had it for the girls in there bedroom as babies but they never parted with it and still using it.
The lindam night light is around six inches tall, it plugs into the power socket and can be switched on. The night light has three yellow stars on it and underneath the light is says sweet dreams repeated three times it is way too cute. There is a sensor on it so when it gets dark the light comes on its self, usually by the time the girls are ready for bed the night light is already on. You can put your finger over the sensor to test and it comes on straight away., The night light does not need to be switched of at the wall due to it sensing daylight it turns itself of, that's a good thing for me as i would never remember to do this. Most importantly the lindam night light is really quite bright but as it is low down in the socket its a nice gentle warming glow fills the room. My daughters can still read there books in bed with just the night light on. The lindam night light is energy efficient too so you don't need to worry about the electric bill.
As i have said we have had this for three years now and not once have we had to change the bulb or had any problems with it amazing id say but again it is lindam a brand i totally trust.
I highly recommend the lindam night light, i hope mine lasts another few years yet.
When I initially saw this item on Dooyoo, I thought “How can I write a whole review about a simple light?”, so I thought I’d set myself the challenge, and would appreciate any feedback! When my daughter Lucy (now 4 years old) was first born, she was lulled off to sleep by the dulcet tones of the Tomy Lullaby Light Show (available from all good retailers), this cast an image on the ceiling of pretty animals, as well as playing a tune. However, this had to be wound up at regular intervals and she always liked the security of having the hallway landing light left on at night. However, my wife and I didn’t like the brightness of the hall light continually on all night and found it increasingly difficult to sleep (on the rare opportunities we actually got to sleep). We decided to search round for some kind of night light, to give Lucy the security of having some light on, but not so dazzling for us. We came across this Lindam “Dawn to Dusk Sensor Light” in the Argos catalogue and decided that this would suit the job. This is a very simple device, it plugs into the wall either inside or outside the child’s bedroom and can be left switched on all the time. The device has a simple light sensor on the front, so when it gets dark (or you put your hand over it!), the light comes on. The bulb inside is one which could be compared to one which is inside a fridge, and replacement bulbs are available in all good DIY stores (eg, B&Q, Homebase). I buy mine from a local lighting/electrical spares shop, which are under £1 each, making the light very economical to run. They are also very easy to replace, by simply screwing part of the plastic frontage off the unit, replacing the bulb and screwing the unit back together again. The bulbs are quite delicate though, and often I’ve taken the Light Sensor out of the plug socket and accidentally dropped it on the floor, smashing the bulb in the process. My ha
ndy hints for using this item would be: 1. Leave it plugged in and switched on all the time in a spare plug socket. 2. Have one or two spare bulbs handy in case of sudden failure, otherwise sleepless night is ahead! 3. If you have to unplug it, be very careful when unplugging and changing the bulb, and always remember to put a plastic child safety plug in its place, you never know. My resumee for this product would be: simple, but effective and one which helps you and your child get to sleep!
Light comes on when sun sets and off at dawn. The built-in sensor turns the light on at dusk and off at dawn. Ideal for the nursery, stairs or landing.
