Aging in Place Becomes More Practical For More Seniors With Low Cost Motion Sensitive LED Lighting
Aging in place is rapidly becoming one of the most important long-term social issues of our time — one that is not likely to disappear any time soon. The oldest members of the Baby Boom generation, the single largest in American history, are now well into their mid 60s. And, just as they have revolutionized every part of American life at every step in their journey through life, this generation is certain to make the notion of ‘aging in place’ a practical reality.
“The reality is that today’s aging Baby Boomer has no intention of slowing down and every intention to stay in their home for as long as they possibly can,” said Mei Noguchi, President of Sentina®, the industry-leading manufacturer and marketer of high quality, affordably priced motion sensitive LED lighting solutions. “This reality is certain to stimulate the development of any number of consumer products that will help them to achieve this objective.”
Chief among these products, according to Noguchi, is a new generation of high quality, affordably priced, motion sensitive LED household lighting solutions that are easy to buy, easy to install, and easy on the wallet because they conserve energy consumption. “Previous generations of aging Americans simply had to leave lights on all night in order to minimize accidents that can often occur when seniors wake up during the night, find themselves disoriented while reaching for a light switch, and fall as a result.
“Today’s Baby Boom generation no longer has to live this way. They can simply plug in any number of motion sensitive LED lights around their house, in their hallways, bedrooms and bathrooms. The lights remain off when no one is around and they automatically turn on when someone moves around them. It’s the ideal solution that improves household safety, keeps seniors in their homes, and reduces energy costs and, because LED lights are so long lasting, Boomers hardly ever need to worry about changing bulbs!” Noguchi estimates that the average consumer can completely equip their house or apartment with motion sensitive LED lighting solutions for under $150!
Take, for example, the Sentina PM-316B ZenLight, that is available for $40.00. It combines the best of ancient Japanese lighting methods with the latest in LED lighting technology and motion sensor technology. The built-in authentic Japanese Shoji Paper takes the energy-saving LED lights and gives it a soothing and peaceful glow. The built-in motion sensor provides light only when needed, turning on automatically when the consumer enters the room and shutting off when the consumer leaves the room. The sensor can be adjusted to shut off after 1, 5 or 10 minutes.
The Sentina LED-92M four-way emergency light is just that: four lights in one unit for a retail price of $30.00. Fully charged to support motion, darkness, and power outage sensors, the Sentina LED-92M light simply plugs into a wall socket and performs for pennies per day. The light activates only when approached, in darkness, or in a power outage. In all other times, the light remains off. When disconnected from the socket, the light will also perform as an emergency flash light for up to eight hours.
