This isn’t just an illuminated door handle, it is a privacy handle as well. When the thumb turn is activated it lets you know it is occupied with it’s red light. If the room is unoccupied it shows green. The inside handle is just a nice stainless steel.
On the downside, power is supplied with wires directly in the door, so is not a real simple install.
One thing is for certain – I am glad it is made for an inside door because I am sure my homeowner’s association would not be thrilled with a glowing handle on my front door. Plus, it would tell every burglar in the world when my door is unlocked.
