You know you're in a fancy house when there's a soft glow of guide lights illuminating stairs and hallway baseboards. Here's a way to make your home a little more like Bill Gates' summer mansion: Snazzy outlet covers with built-in LED guide lights. Regularly $20, you can get a five-pack of these outlet covers for $13 with promo code CNETOCV. That's less than $3 each, and a dollar less than the last time I saw this deal.
These plates come in two styles to suit most electrical outlets, and both feature a trio of LED lights that point down at the floor. There's no battery or special wiring needed; just remove the old cover and push this new one into place. Two electrical contacts hug the outlet and draw power for the LEDs (estimated to cost about 10 cents a year). And the lights only run at night thanks to the small photosensor.
I love guide lights like these. Not only are they convenient and a safety improvement, they really enhance the look of your home after dark. What do you think about these outlet covers? Let me know in the comments.

The 6 Best Outlet Covers of 2021
The best overall outlet cover is one that will keep your baby from accessing the socket, but still allows you to have easy access to the outlet. The Wappa Baby Outlet Covers do both and they're our top pick for the best outlet cover.
These outlet plug covers are made of ABS plastic, which has electrical insulation properties, and the white finish expertly conceals the holes of the socket (which are often a major draw for little fingers). They snap into place firmly and won't fall out or break.
While no outlet cover is guaranteed to be resistant to your baby’s level of curiosity or determination, many parents comment that these outlet plug covers were the ones that finally solved their baby-proofing dilemma. Some families said that these outlet covers were hard to remove when they wanted to use the outlet, but they effectively keep out toddlers and babies. For an outlet plug cover that snaps in, blends in, and stays put until you remove it, this product is the way to go.
