Oh, i never saw it from that perspective. But still, i don't think it's a light you want to turn off, unless you really are a darkness loving person which most of us aren't. Everyone needs small lights that are always ON in the homes, just to provide enough illumination to see things clearly. You can always choose to install them to the limited areas you do want to see lighten up at nights and leave the rest as it is.
But yes you are right, it's a very small detail but very useful and they should consider adding a tiny ON/OFF button in the upcoming models.

Oops Daniyal_Ali, I do have second thoughts. The one issue I see with the SnapRays Guidelight is that it operates off of a photosensor which is nice - but there is no way to turn it off if for some reason you wanted total darkness, unless you disassemble it - which would be inconvenient. Hopefully they will also expand the color spectrum that is available.

SnapRays Guidelight

Thanks for sharing Lauren. The SnapRays Guidelight looks wonderful. Not only does it draw very less power (around 5 milliamps of current) but the lifespan of the LEDs is more than 25 years. No wonder they outdid their original goal of $12,000. A perfect example of how a uniquely designed and easy to install solution having a large lifetime with very less initial cost can get the consumers interested in the product without second thoughts
