Battery Powered 'Night Lights'

Posted by awilson2006 (My Page) on

I am just finishing installation of hardwood flooring on my stair treads and risers. I would like to install very small battery powered (I don't have access to the back of the stairs, in order to put in AC lines) lights into the risers. I would also like for the lights to have photocells.

Does anybody have suggestions for the type of lighting that I am talking about?

Thanks in advance,

You're either going to use a lot of batteries, or have very dim lights.

RE: Battery Powered 'Night Lights'

I bought a photo sensitive/motion activated battery led light for my front door. Mostly so I can see to unlock door. A motion detector light just not an option since front door light is suspended and wind would make it go off. I got it at Menards for about $10. It takes 2 AAA batteries. You probably would go through a lot of batteries. I only have to change mine about every 9 months but not a lot of traffic at front door.
