Led Switch Les Lights

Status: Acknowledged

My name is Anish Verma and I am almost 15 years old. Right now I am at a business summer camp at Stanford  trying to figure out ways to make switch-less led lighting more effective. I was writing to you to hear your thoughts about the idea about switch-less led lights, and what you want them to be. My team and I are thinking of mood lighting or heat detectors to sense what color the light should display on its own. Lastly, I was wondering if you would have something like this in your stores.

Interesting idea. It's not really an idea for Best Buy, but I could see us possibly selling some version of this someday. Technically there is no such thing as a switchless lights that aren't always on. I looked at your website and it sounds like you are talking about lights where the switch is some type of detection device. Interesting future product.

By definition a switch less light would either always be on or always be off. With electricity there needs to be a connection for current to flow. Somewhere along the line there would have to be some sort of switching mechanism, unless you wanted them to always be on or not on.

 

I would think then if you want a set of lights to not have to be manually have the circuit closed you would then want to go with a motion sensor system or have a pressure mounted switch, such as you used to see when walking in some stores they used to have a black pad that was pressure activated.  

 

Another idea would be to have a metal detector switch. They are used at stop lights so the system knows someone wants to turn left or has approached a turn that is not often used. The metal detector in the ground senses the metal in a car and activates the switch.  If you could get some sort of detector that would look for a specific metal then it would act like a pass key.

 

Another type of switch would be a laser activated switch. When a new garage door opener is installed there is a laser switch placed such that when something breaks the beam it turns on light and will reverse the door if it is closing.

 

 

Quite a few possibilities and I applaud your foresight for going to a forum. However, that aside this IDEA forum is for ideas for Best Buy as a company.   Feel free to send me a private message via the interface and I would be willing to continue the discussion. 

 

and yes, Best Buy carries a wide array of motion activated lights.
