Going to the bathroom in the middle of the night can be dangerous, especially when you’re sleeping at someone else’s home. The chances of injury or embarrassment are much higher.

Make life easier for your own guests (and yourself) by installing a motion-activated LED toilet light. It provides subtle illumination when you enter the bathroom, allowing for safe passage, while not disturbing the sleep of anyone nearby.

The light fits onto your toilet lid’s underside, clearly illuminating your bowl. It stays lit for 30 seconds after sensing motion, which should be long enough to position yourself.

The seat-status indicator is probably the most ingenious feature. The light is red when the seat is up, and green when it’s down, providing an early warning system.

There are many good reasons to get one of these lights, from bathroom guidance after a big night out, to toilet training your kid. The Daily Dot store has the toilet light now for $11.99 with free shipping to the U.S. Get yours now to save 40 percent off the original price.
