Bring some sunlight into your home

sunlight-direct-halogen.jpgDo you find yourself saving up money each month and looking forward to making a purchase of that gadget you’ve always wanted, only to be thwarted by a heartache-inducing power bill? One cannot run away from the fact that lighting up a house properly is a necessity, but then there are better ways to do so. Sunlight Direct’s innovative halogen/solar lighting aims to bring in natural sunlight in a focused manner into the confines of your home without racking up the power bill at the end of the month.

Despite its renewable energy source, you won’t be able to tell them apart from a normal halogen bulb when seen from the inside when installed. Taking a look at your roof is another matter entirely as the sunlight collector which is mounted there will gather all the rays it can get, funneling them down into the Sunlight Direct halogen lighting directly via a fibre optic cable, where the refractor will then focus the light to where you want it to be. Too bad there is no way you get to store the sunlight for use later in the evening and at night.

The Sunlight Direct halogen lighting is smart enough to adjust the electricity in the halogens in order to maintain a steady, overall light level courtesy of the microprocessor within that monitors the amount of sunlight coming in. Sunlight Direct claims that the light bulbs are able to last up to twenty times longer than normal and are much more efficient in dispensing their duties, lowering the overall power bill at the end of the month.

  1. It seems less like a light but more like a sky light. It would be cool if you live somewhere really sunny and have a need for something similar to a skylight.

  2. What I like about this idea even more than saving on the power bill is the fact that you’d be getting actual sunlight inside. I think it would greatly improve one’s mood during the winter months when we get very little sunlight!
