@Kyser_Soze@rmeden those are $25 each at HD. They make great no tool upgrades to closets with pull string switches. When I bought my house all the closets had pull string lighting with no covers, just the bulbs. To meet the closing requirements they all had to have covers. The existing fixtures were not designed to have covers so it was either wire in new lighting in each closet or put these in. I chose to put these in and knocked that off the list for the whole house in 5 minutes.
@hchavers@raccoon81 you can buy those bases at any hardware store but many areas it is not legal to install in a home without a cover. So, you may have installed a code violation depending on your local building codes.
@goldnectar The newer bulbs work with Alexa without needing a hub. There is also nothing to stop you from using the switch to turn on the light. It just needs to be “on” if you want to use voice control. If you flick the switch off and on, it automatically turns on.
@Kyeh That’s a really cool idea. Could maybe do a rag-on / rag-off of tinted glaze on the shade and get a package or two of glow-in-the-dark stars and you’re set! (Having helped with decorating kids and grandkids rooms, I’m starting to get a feel for this stuff )
@chienfou yah, I picked up the “60” watt equivalent number. But the point is the same. Lots of little traditional bubble LEDs is old tech here just like it would be in flashlights. 4th photo on front page.
This is close but no cigar to what I’m actually looking for. I need two small non brass based light fixtures but don’t want pull chains and don’t want to have to install bare bulb fixture to put this over.
Meh almost had the exact items I’m in need of most for my next project though… I’m impressed. Irk has been mind reading me.
