Essential Info

Plug in an electrical device into the AmerTac Indoor Plug-In Motion-Activated Light Control to have it turn on when movement is detected. Never walk into dark room again, let your motion turn on the light for you. It's tough to turn the lights on when your hands are full. But that doesn't mean you need to stumble around in the dark when you come home with your arms laden with groceries, kids, laundry or the myriad accoutrements of modern life. The AmerTac Motion Activated Outlet is a motion sensor plug that's triggered when you walk past, instantly turning on a light or even an appliance, such as a fan or a radio.

    I got this for a friend....I mistakenly plugged the vacuum into the old one & shorted it out. It works great for lights....don't plug your vacuum into it.

    This product is perfect! My mother has diminishing vision so I put the unit in the hallway and plugged in a small lamp. Now she can go to. The bathroom at night and. Not have to feel for any switches.
