Cool Idea: Solar LED House Numbers

Considering how plugged in and geeked out our homes are these days, sometimes it baffles me that the simplest, often most crucial things aren't well-lit. Personally, I'm a big fan of motion-sensor lighting, so when you're walking toward your front (or back) door you won't trip and wind up falling flat on your back. But motion-sensor lighting doesn't help passersby who are trying to locate your crib. That's why I'm smitten with the Matter Inc. Solar LED House Numbers ($19.99). The solid aluminum fixture absorbs the sun's energy during the day to power two high output white LEDs for eight to 10 hours during the night, keeping your house numbers well-lit without draining the grid or your wallet. The laser-cut numbers are completely weather-resistant, too, which is a plus. Although I personally don't mind the modern, sans-serif shape of the numbers, I wish they were offered in a traditional serif to appeal to more homeowners. What do you think?

Great Idea, I just bought a number for my house. I live in Belgium, wonder how long it will take to receive the number. Great idea!

i LOVE this. one of my biggest pet peeves is when people have lights on their house, yet they don't illuminate the number so you're completely lost. you have to drive like 4 houses away to find one with a number to only realize that you've passed your location and have to turn around again.

That is a really great idea. It's so hard to find house numbers at night and these actually look chic.

Using LED lights for house numbers--or even for outdoor lighting in general is a great idea. The light is clear and bright and can last up to 60,000 hours... We're using LEDs for a lot of our clients that come to us through

These are interesting, I wonder if they have to be exposed to direct sunlight to get their staying power? So many house numbers that I see are on the side of the house usually under an overhang or eave and don't get much sunlight.
