Clap lights are lights controlled by sound activated circuit boards, and they solve a real problem for seniors.

The clap lights are indeed a very handy device for the elderly. Remember, a large % of health problems for the elderly happen because of falls.

Check out these links that provide some stats on how lethal and fatal falls can be- Link 1 & Link 2.

We have seen how many times, falls for seniors happen when they try to walk towards a switch in the dark. This problem can now be taken care of through the Clap Lights.

The idea is simple – rather than seniors needing to walk some distance to switch on a light, just clap, and voila, the light is on!

What easier way for old people to have the lights switched!

How do these work? Rather simple – the work is done at a small box that you plug the light bulb into; this box is further plugged into an electrical outlet in the wall. Inside this box is a sound activated circuit board.

Here is a detailed article on this from – did not know that this product existed for over 3 decades!

This is a product I am soon going to try out for my dad to see how much easier his life is made.
