Clap Lights – A simple way for seniors to avoid falling in the dark
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.
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.
