The Toolbox: Lighting system goes on when the power goes out
- May 14, 2013 - 3:26 PM
When the lights go out, backup lights come on
A new emergency home lighting system uses wireless technology to turn on the lights automatically in a power outage.
The heart of the Mr. Beams ReadyBright system is a control unit you keep plugged into an electrical outlet. The instant the power goes out, the battery-operated unit illuminates to become a flashlight. It also sends a wireless signal that turns on all the other ReadyBright lights in the home.
Battery-operated ceiling lights are available, as well as path lights for hallways and stairs.
The lights can be ordered at www.mrbeams.com. A starter house kit with one controller, one ceiling light and one path light costs $69.99 but is currently on sale for $59.99. Individual lights and light sets in different configurations are also available.
