Black and Decker LightsOut IR Gizmo Turns Lights Off For Lazy, Green Types

Illustration for article titled Black and Decker LightsOut IR Gizmo Turns Lights Off For Lazy, Green Types

My old office used to have those irritating IR-sensor lights, so if you were working late and popped out—say to the loo—for more than a few minutes, you'd be welcomed back to uninviting darkness: now you can have the same facility in your home thanks to Black&Decker's LightsOut. Well, actually it's quite a neat gizmo—it's battery powered, and simply mounts directly over a light switch, which it then throws for you if it doesn't detect movement in front of its sensor. Plus it turns the lights on when you enter. You can even change the "off" preset delay time, up to 30 minutes. Handy if you forget to switch the light off in your garage—like I often do. No word on pricing yet. [NewLaunches]

How green is it when you are consuming tons of batteries? Just put in a motion activated switch, no need for un-green batteries.
