In Wall Night Light w/ motion sensor

When they built our house I had them pre-wire 4 outlets so could install lighting at a later date.

The are pre-wires are on the wall along the stairs and 2 are in the hallway. All are about 1 ft off the ground are cutout with a dummy outlet plate over them.

What am looking for is a lighting product that would fit in a standard wallbox and provides indirect lighting , LED, has some sort of timer (dusk/Dawn/Timer,etc.)

A big plus would be a motion sensor.

I wanted to see if anyone can recommend a product or brand?

Here is one i have found that seem to fit the bill but doesnt have motion sensing which I would really like to have. Designers Edge L-7010 In Wall Dusk to Dawn LED Nightlight: Home Improvement

Thanks for any suggestion :

I like the louvered ones. I dont know why you would want a motion detector. Possibly its always dark in the hall and they will always be on?

I would try to add this at a wall switch but you may need to do some wiring.

WSD - Motion Detector Switch

They do make one though. I found this.

FWIW I have one of these in my bathroom and it does the trick nicely.

It has a photocell in it, so the nightlight is only on when needed. It's also bright enough to do most of your business in the dark.

LED's have such a long lifespan, and use cents per year to operate I wouldn't worry about having it on a motion sensor.

If you don't want the gfci, they have a straight night light model too.

FWIW on power consumption, I have a few plug in led night lights that dont even register on my kill-a-watt..
