How can a motion detector light switch help me if I have memory problems?

If remembering to turn the lights off is a problem at your house, install a motion detector light switch that automatically turns the light on when you enter a room and turns it off when you leave. Some models come with adjustable timers with a maximum 20-minute delay. If you use a motion detector in the bedroom, you can safely get into bed before the light turns off. Lights can also be operated normally with a manual override feature.
