What are home lighting aids and why should you use them?

If you, or someone you care for, are living with a visual impairment which makes it difficult to read text clearly or navigate your house at night, you may want to try a home lighting aid.

Sensor lights provide peace of mind when walking at night and can act as a guide towards the main light source. They are a simple way to reduce accidents and falls in the home.

Desk and chair lamps illuminate your reading material and help you see the text more clearly.

Home lighting would benefit those who experience:

  • Reduced vision, especially at night time or in low light
  • Difficulty with balance or mobility and navigating in the dark
  • Wandering or waking at night and could be susceptible to falls
Keep in mind
It is important to identify your own personal requirements before choosing a lighting aid to ensure you buy a product that offers maximum safety and benefits for your needs. Visual impairments can cause simple tasks, such as reading and walking around the home, to be unnecessarily difficult, but a bright light can help you see more clearly and better understand your environment.

Which lighting aids are right for you?

Bright Led Striplight With Movement Sensor

Bright Led Striplight With Movement Sensor

  • Increases safety for anyone who leaves bed in the night
  • Automatically illuminates the area without the need for switches
  • Can be placed in many different areas of the home and isn't restricted to a socket
  • Can act as a guide towards the main light source
  • Lights up when movement is sensed up to 3 metre away, staying on for 30 seconds after the motion has stopped

Things to consider

It is important to position home lighting aids in a suitable location to maximise their efficiency and benefits. Take your time to consider where they will be placed and if you will need a plug or a socket.

Walking in the dark can be dangerous, even if it’s just to reach the light switch. An automatic light will prevent you stumbling in the dark by lighting up your surroundings.

A magnifier with a built-in light, such as the Floor Standing Magnifier with 12 LED Lights, will enlarge and brighten the text making it clearer for you to read.

If you’re living with limited grip in your hands, a product such as the Hands-Free Magnifier reduces strain on your hands and enables you to carry on with your tasks. Similarly, if you have limited dexterity in your fingers, a Bright Led Striplight With Movement Sensor is a great alternative to fiddly light switches and can help reduce pain in your fingers.
