    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    First it is an LED bulb, much more environmental friendly than low energy bulbs and even need less energy than those.
    Second it is a 3200k warm white light, perfect for a staircase or a corridor.
    Third it is a perfect energy saver for places where people always forget to switch off light when not used.
    Forth it can be a safety device if persons have the bad manner not switching on a light when going to toilet at night.

    Cons:

    If used for staircase ilumination, it must be close to the entrance of both sides otherwise it will switch on very late for children.
    A person needs to come to 1,5 - 2 meters before switching on. If installed at 2,2 meters, a little child comes very close until switching on.
    The IR sensor has a low electricity consumtion but permanently.

    OtherThoughts:

    Switch off after last detected movement is after
    1min 45sec.

    Bottomline:

    I have a 4W and a 6W installed, and I plan to order more after a trial periode of 9 months.
    Normally they should last much longer, but this has been promised by the expensive low energy bulbs too, but does not work in my house nor at those who I know.
    If both pass the lifetime of 9 months, the above mentionned advantages are worth to buy more of those. And meanwhile I hope that LED gets cheaper.
