Swivel Shine is a lighting system that is motion activated and can switch on and track your movements to provide the best possible illumination. While it does very well in rooms, it is also suited to compact spaces such as wardrobes and closets. The device is very energy efficient. Best of all, the light is very easy to install and requires little or no special expertise to do so. No wiring or electrical outlets need to be installed.
The cost of Swivel Shine is $19.99 plus $4.99 shipping. The special TV offer allows you to receive a second Swivel Shine at the discounted price of only $4.99 for a total price of $29.97. This price was obtained from the As Seen on TV commercial page found at swivelshine.com; however, the company has since ceased selling Swivel Shine and has taken down the website. Swivel Shine may still be found for sale on Amazon or Ebay.
The light is very economical, as it can automatically turn itself on and off when it detects motion. This makes it one of the most energy-efficient devices around. It only switches on when there is motion in its vicinity, and it switches off the moment there is no one around.
The Swivel Shine also uses the latest technology in LEDs, which are SMD LEDs. These use on the order of about seventy-five percent less energy than other lights that provide comparative illumination. The low energy cost of the functioning device, combined with the motion-activated automatic shut-off combine to considerably reduce energy usage. Finally, the LEDs themselves are long lasting and can be used for about a hundred thousand hours before they give out.
The Swivel Shine has a range of settings that can allow the swivel to move in a number of different ways, allowing it to be adapted to different purposes.
The light can be used in many different places and applications. It can be used in a wardrobe or a closet, allowing you to easily light up an enclosed space. Other enclosed spaces in which it can be used is on the underside of furniture or cabinets, or on shelves. This device allows you to easily find anything that you require, even if the main lighting in a room happens to be turned off. It's an excellent light at a front door, easily allowing you to find your keys, and the keyhole, if you arrive home after dark.
The fact that the light actually tracks your motion makes finding things in the dark with this light inestimably easier. The light can also be used to accentuate and highlight works of art, such as a portrait or a statue. Since the light will only turn on when someone is actually near the work of art, it becomes a very energy efficient way of highlighting such works in a gallery, or even in a home.
The Swivel Shine is effortless to install and comes with everything that is needed for the installation process. The installation itself requires no particular technical skill. There is some easy to use hardware, and adhesive, and all you have to do, basically, is stick the light on to a surface. Installing the light does not require the services of a trained electrician. It does not require a connection to mains power, which means that you do not need to install a wired connection, and do not need to have an electrical outlet near the light.
If you find that you do not need the motion sensor, it can easily be turned off so that the light can be activated and deactivated manually. This can be convenient when the light is used in certain ways, for example as a desk light, when you might prefer to have the light remain on when you turn away to fetch something.
The light uses standard sized dry cells. Its low energy consumption allows it to remain functional for a long time despite the economical power source.
The device is only one inch thick, and a little more than an inch in height. The illumination strip is thirteen inches long, to maximize illumination. All in all, it forms a very compact device that maximizes illumination while taking up the least possible space.
It can be extremely difficult sometimes to find the light switch in a dark room. The chances are that one will trip over something that someone has left carelessly lying around. One can also knock a vase off a table, or in some way or the other either damage oneself or something breakable in the room. This can be an issue even if one knows a room intimately, and becomes a real problem if several people use the same room. It’s difficult to find a light switch even in a room with little furniture and no breakables.
This device negates all those problems. It’s motion-detecting sensors pick you up, focus the device’s lighting on you, and allows you, at the very least, to find the main lighting in the room. If you’re only entering the room for a moment, you can rely entirely upon the light from this device, which will follow you as you move around the room.
The light automatically switching on tends to imply that ‘somebody switched it on’. This can be a powerful deterrent to burglars, especially as the light tends to track movement. If the light is placed in a sheltered location outside the house, it will switch on automatically if an intruder is in the vicinity, and then track the intruder’s movements. This will scare off most intruders and burglars, who will think that someone is aware of their presence and focusing the light on them. This makes this device an economical way of adding to the security of a home, or even business premises. The value of this is accentuated when you are away from home, as your home can give the impression of being ‘occupied’, even when you are away.
