Living in Kentucky, we see our fair share of thunderstorms and severe weather. And along with those storms can come the nuisance of losing power. I have to admit that I’m one of those woefully unprepared people when the power goes out. Either we can’t find the candles and flashlights or have the wrong size batteries or we’re totally out of batteries. It’s something I’ve told myself I need to work on and get organized with, but I just never seem to get around to it.
I was happy to find out about a new product, the ReadyBright System, that is just what I need to be prepared for unexpected power outages. This easy to use system will keep my family and household safe by providing instant light during times of power loss.
What I like best about the ReadyBright System is that once it is installed, I don’t have to worry about it anymore. It’s there, ready to automatically pop on when needed.
The system consists of three components: the Power Outage Detector, the Stair and Path Light, and the Ceiling Light. The Power Outage Detector plugs into your wall socket. When a power outage occurs, it sends a radio signal to activate up to 10 Stair and Path Lights and/or Ceiling Lights that you have in your home. This signal can activate lights up to 70 feet away. At the same time, the Power Outage Detector itself lights up as well. You can remove this unit from the wall and manually control the other lights or simply use as an emergency flashlight anytime. Once the lights have been activated, they will provide 40+ hours of clear, bright light throughout your home.
The system is simple to set up. The Stair and Path Lights run on 4 AA batteries; the Ceiling Lights run on 4 C batteries. The lights come with both mounting brackets and double stick tape for quick and easy installation.
The ReadyBright System also has a few power management features. If you happen to be away from home when the power goes out, the lights will shut off after 30 minutes. If you are at home and want to keep the lights on, simply press the “on” button found on the Power Outage Detector. There’s also a red LED light which will let you know if the batteries need to be replaced.
This helpful, household system has been recommended by The New York Times and Apartment Therapy. I think it’s a great product and a must-have for any home. It will certainly give me peace of mind, knowing that if we have a power outage, the ReadyBright System will instantly provide light for my family.
