What are green pips on switches for?

Modified on: Mon, 4 May, 2020 at 10:29 AM

The green pips glow up in the dark, UV stimulated plastic, the more you expose to natural light the brighter the glow (NOT 

LED lit).

The brightness is like the dials on a watch that glow, they are not bright, but dim, arms length away to view at maximum exposure 

The switches with the green pip MUST be exposed to direct UV sunlight, if so, the exposure time can take several weeks 

Note: If you have UV filtered glazed windows or not direct sunlight to the switches, then this may never be absorbed and never glow. If you put in dark place or cupboard the pip shall not be exposed.
