Where I live there are a lot of new homes and subdivisions being built all the time. A few years ago it seemed like the power was constantly going out from builders accidentally cutting power lines. I remember one evening it happened right at dinner, and not only was I stuck with a half cooked meal on the stove, I couldn’t even see the pan in front of me! I have always thought of power outages occurring from natural disasters. I know now that, depending on where you live, it can happen just about any time or place!
ReadyBright is a brilliant new lighting system that is a perfect solution for families who deal with constant power loss, or want to be prepared for the once and awhile power outages you never expected.
ReadyBright has various plug-in lighting kits that retail from $34.99 and up. The kit pictured above is $69.99 and comes with a Power Outage Detector, Path Light, and Ceiling Light.
Here’s how it works: The smart Power Outage Detector instantly detects when the power goes out, illuminates to become a brilliant flashlight, and wirelessly turns on all the other ReadyBright Lights in your home. You now have a light source when power outage is detected.
When trying out ReadyBright, I was very impressed with the distance in which the other units turn on. You can activate multiple lights up to 70 feet away! I also love that the Power Outage Detector can be carried around as a flashlight.
The LED lights are super bright, and will run up to 40 hours on a charge. They are incredibly easy to mount on your wall or ceiling too.
I love that the ReadyBright Ceiling Light looks similar to a smoke alarm, causing it to not look out of place on your ceiling or wall. The ReadyBright Path Light works brilliantly on a stair case or hallway. I always worry about my kids falling down the stairs during a power outage!
