Win ReadyBright Starter House Kit ($69.99 value) emergency lighting

Living out in the country, we lose power fairly regularly. Sometimes an ice storm will cause lines to go down.  Sometimes the wind will take down a tree or large branch. Either way, we suddenly find ourselves sitting in the dark. Of course, we have candles and oil lamps for emergencies but there are some places I really don’t want to use those.  I don’t like the idea of candles and oil lamps in the children’s rooms.  If I need to make a trip to the bathroom, I don’t really want to have to mess with lighting a candle to carry along with me.   Emergency lighting is something that we’ve been discussing as part of our emergency preparedness plan.

ReadyBright Starter House Kit – emergency lighting

Mr. Beams Intelligent LED battery powered lights are a solution to power outages.  The Mr. Beams Power Outage Detector plugs into any wall outlet and senses whether or not there is power to that outlet.  As soon as the power goes out, the Power Outage Detector lights up and sends a radio signal that activates all the Mr. Beams wireless LED lights throughout the home. You can then use the Power Outage Detector as a flashlight and a remote control for all of the Mr. Beams lights in your home.   The Mr. Beams lights can provide more than 40 hours of light on one set of batteries during a power outage.  You use one Mr. Beams Power Outage Detector and it can activate and control dozens of Mr. Beams wireless lights positioned within 70 feet.

ReadyBright System emergency lighting

The ReadyBright Starter House Kit includes a Mr. Beams Power Outage Detector, a Stair and Path Light and a Ceiling Light. It also includes the necessary batteries and hardware to install.  The Stair and Path Light uses 4 AA batteries (included) and the Ceiling Light uses 4 C batteries (included).  The Stair and Path Light can be mounted with screws or with a double sided sticky tape. The Ceiling Light attaches with screws.  The Mr. Beams Power Outage Detector looks sort of like a night light.  It plugs into a wall socket to detect whether or not there is power. It’s quite compact and doesn’t take up a lot of room which is great in our home because we are always searching for usable plugs. You simply install the included battery and plug it in to an outlet.

One of the features I really like is that it has an auto shut off.    If you are away from home when the power shuts off, the Mr. Beams lights will shut off after 30 minutes. If you are home and you want them to stay lit longer than that, just press the on button. This is a great way to save on the batteries.  There is also a low battery indicator light that tells you when you need to change the batteries. The Outage Detector works for up to 70 feet which means it will work throughout a 2500 square foot home.  Our home is 1500 square feet so this is more than adequate for us.  I put the Outage Detector  in the bathroom since that’s where we have the most unused outlets.  I put the Stair and Path Light on the wall in our pantry which will light our kitchen and bathroom.  The Ceiling Light is on the landing at the top of the stairs and will light our upstairs. I love the security of knowing that we won’t be plunged instantly into darkness when the power goes out.  There will still be some basic amount of emergency lighting in certain areas while we get together our lamps, candles and flashlights.  We can then choose to keep it on or turn it off as we like.
