SnapPower Guidelight – Outlet Coverplate with LED Night Lights, Duplex, White

The Snap Power Guidelight is a wall plate that fits over a standard electrical outlet and provides a fully functional night light.

When you look at Guidelight, it looks like a standard outlet cover plate from the front, with the exception of this light sensor at the bottom. You have the option for both standard duplex style, and decorative outlets like I have in my house.
