GU10 bulb with built in pir?

17
Found 31st Mar 2017
Our downstairs toilet is a dark room even during the day. when going in there you always need the light on, when people have finished they come out and forget to turn the light off because you are walking back in to brightness. I have been looking at replacing the GU10 with another with an inbuilt pir but the ones I've seen only stay on for between 45seconds and 1 minute. Does anybody know of any which stay on longer or are adjustable without buying a separate pir sensor?
Thanks.

Why not just fit a timed light switch?

Nice 1, never seen these before, ours is a 2 gang switch so think the bulb would be less hassle(if they do an adjustable time)
Thanks for the reply.

Is that 45 seconds to 1 minute after the last detection of movement wont it just stay on for as long as it detects you

It is yes and although if the women do shake their lettuce it would come on again but preferred a bit longer.
Thanks.

It goes with the rest of the salad, often goes with sausage too.

It has an led already but it's burning a whole 5w when on!!!! That's what's frustrating, by the way I'm from Yorkshire.

200 hours per kw which is around 12p so 43.8 kw a year that bulb is on 24/7/365 = £5

I know HB, I know what your saying, I'm not really that tight, I went out for fish & chips dinner yesterday and bought the Mrs one too.
I have a similar situation in my house and I use night light/torches which are sold from time to time by both Aldi and Lidl - the price is usually about £5 - £7. They are available both as plug-in and battery. They work very well and they are a valuable safety feature if the mains power is disrupted afrter dark.

To be honest I never found any, if you do try them let me know what they are like.
I only need one so don't really want a 2 pack. There's singles on eBay but if I'm going to buy electrical items from an unknown brand I'd rather go through Amazon.

Haha, we could share a pack. No problem, if you could update if you try one and let us know the results.
Cheers.
Sod the lightbulb, I’m more intrigued with ‘what’s a lettuce’
