Liftmaster has introduced a brand new product that stands to change mancaves, garages, closets, and attics forever. The new 840LM 4′ Garage Light is a simple solution for one of the most common shortcomings about the inside of a garage, attic, or closet. You just can’t see anything, it’s just too dark!
If you look online, you’ll see hundreds of light fixtures that offer plug in compatibility, but most are either cheaply made, aren’t exactly what you were looking for, offer only one florescent light bulb, or cost way too much money. Enter the Liftmaster 840LM 4′ Garage Light.
With a motion sensor built in to the light fixture, you never have to worry about finding that light switch, or balancing all your work things with your kids’ school materials like a game of Jenga just to be able to see what you’re doing. Many closets are left without light- in which we commonly buy those battery powered LED lights that just don’t do the trick at all. And although many garage door openers now come with motion sensing lights, you can barely even tell that your garage door opener lights are on when the 840LM kicks on.
The construction is very well done, and is aimed at simplicity of install. The metal fixtures and sturdy steel outer mounting clips are a nice touch to a previously neglected area of plug-in lighting. Screw 2 lagbolts into studs, or 2 toggle bolts (or 30lb screw/anchors) through the ceiling, attach the mounting clips to the light, plug it in, and you’re done. You can either poke a hole in the ceiling above the light, or run the cord with supplied cord clips to tidy up the job (and paint the cord if needed). There’s no splicing, no concerns about breakers, and you don’t need any electrical knowledge. The 8′ power cord is long enough to reach 3/4 of the way across most standard two-car garages. If you can hang a picture on the wall, you can mount the 840LM Garage Light with no problem.
It comes with two 4′ florescent bulbs, making it appear as if it were a professionally installed permanent commercial light fixture. With two T8, 32watt, and 4,100K, there’s no need to worry about whether it will be put out enough light- it will. The sleek black design, with an opaque cover really gives it a professional and finished look straight out of the box.
There is also a wireless, battery operated push button that you can mount anywhere on the wall or table close to the light fixture- without having to run wires or worry about having an electrician run power to and/or install a switch. You can disable the light as needed with the wall button, and the lights will also go out by themselves after 5 minutes with no motion.
Although cost has not yet been disclosed, we can guarantee that this garage light is going to be worth the money. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to see your tools, that label on the box at the back of your closet, be able to actually see when you’re in the attic, or to have a light on your porch that comes on as somebody approaches your front or back door? You will be amazed at how much nicer- and safer- a garage, closet, or porch can be simply by adding a little light. Not to mention, it makes garages a safer place and inspires a little spring cleaning and organization! This is one of the easiest things that you’ll be able to cross of your honey-do or Do-It-Yourself list! In less than 15 minutes you can honestly transform an entire room.
