If you have dogs, you might possibly have an idea...
You might have "perfect" dogs who this would not apply to...
What could I be referring to???
I am referring to the fact that my dogs have to do their nightly "duties" while it's dark outside. I don't know if they mind going outside in the dark, but I mind letting them outside in the dark into our fenced area, or going outside with them in the darkness.
I have a "porch" light just above and to one side of the door of the motorhome, and it is wonderful to light up the yard. If I remember to turn the light off after the dogs come back inside, then the light bulb doesn't run the batteries down. IF ... it's the operative word! Sometimes I am so involved in getting the two dogs to come inside and therefore quit letting the cold inside and the warmth outside, that I forget to turn off the porch light!
A few days ago, I learned that the industry of RVing has come up with a newbie...it's a porch light which is motion activated and LED, and daylight shutoff! I bought one yesterday, so am installing it and hoping that it will turn on when the dogs go outside, light up the yard nicely and shut itself off after the dogs come back inside. It's quite easy to install and then done!
A good idea!
