Meet the Brains

The innovative MB220 power outage detector powers the entire ReadyBright system.

The power outage detector plugs into an outlet. Once it detects a power outage it lights up and instantly signals the wireless lights to activate. It is a power flashlight that can be used anytime...power outage or not. It is also an easy remote control that turns all system lights on and off to conserve battery life.

During a power outage, the power outage detector can be unplugged and used to activate the lights from wherever you are. It sends an instant signal to lights up to 70 feet away. That can span more than a 2,500-square-foot house.

Hours of Light, Everywhere You Need It

All of the ReadyBright lights in your home instantly turn on the moment you lose power.

The MB785 path light brightly lights up to 8 steps and 15 feet of hallway. The MB985 ceiling light provides 150 square feet of coverage in any room. Both the path and ceiling lights provide 40 hours of light before a battery change is needed.

This is an expandable system with a power outage detector that will control up to 10 lights. Place them anywhere. Provide light to read your sump pump manual or your newspaper.

Bright, Durable, Energy-Efficient LED Lights

Advances in LED technology are what make the innovative ReadyBright power outage lighting system possible. The efficiency of turning battery power to light are what allows the ReadyBright system to provide bright white light for an extended period of time on a single set of batteries.

Runs on Batteries and Installs in Minutes

The path light can be installed anywhere in minutes with a simple mounting bracket or powerful double stick tape. The path light runs on 4 AA batteries and provides 40 hours of light. The ceiling light can be mounted anywhere with an easy mounting bracket and 2 screws. The ceiling light runs on 4 C batteries and also provides 40 hours of lights. Within minutes, you can be ready for your next power outage.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This lighting system provides a functional, but very basic purpose: If the power goes out in your home or workplace, designated, wirelessly linked lights come on. Keep in mind that the lights will be activated whether it is dark or daylight.

How does it do this? The "kit" comes with three ceiling lights, which mount just like smoke detectors, and three "path," or side lights. The ceiling lights require four C batteries each, and the path lights require four AA batteries each (none of these are included).

The controller for these lights, which looks like a small television remote, takes rechargeable batteries, which are included. The controller plugs into an outlet, and when the power goes off, it triggers the six lights to come on throughout the house.

To test the system, the remote can be pulled from the outlet to simulate a power outage. Note that the remote also lights up when a power outage occurs, and can act as a flashlight. Once the remote gets power again (the power comes back on, or you plug it back in after your test), all the lights go back off. You can also turn the lights on and off from the remote itself

Keep in mind that although Mr. Beams makes motion sensor lights, these do not have an option to be activated by motion and, as stated earlier, they do not have light sensors that keep them from coming on when the room is already well lit. The power goes off and the lights come on....period.

A few other things to note:

1) Quality-wise they are okay, but don't expect much. They are hard plastic and will undoubtedly break if dropped.

I bought this as a gift to myself on my birthday last August much to my husbands annoyance.I installed it in September while he laughed at me for being paranoid....and in October superstorm sandy hit. Our home was damaged but we could still live there. The fact that we had no power for 22 days did not bother us too much because we had plenty of light!!!! My neighbors were a little confused because when the sun went down....we were lit. Now...I will say you'll need a little more than a full set (2 rounds in a large living room) and a good supply of c batteries for long outages. Also we found that even though they are bright you got more light when you hang them high on a wall so the light bounces as opposed to the ceiling. The funny thing is in the flood my husband lost all of the flashlights he had stored away due to the flooding. We never had to look for the Mr beams....they w.ere there when we needed them most

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A couple months ago, my power was out for 28 hours due to a single tree falling a mile and a half, and two subdivisions away. It gets real dark when there isn't even the indirect glow of street lights in the house! So when I got a chance to review this product, I jumped-up (and shouted, "Why could you have brought this to me three months ago!")

The kit I got included three ceiling lights, three path lights and one control unit. The control unit comes with a rechargeable battery similar to a cordless phone, but the lights use regular alkaline batteries.

(Don't use rechargeables in the lights. They need the full amperage of the alkaline batteries. Treat these lights as you would a smoke detector in that regard.)

The ceiling lights each use four C batteries, and the path lights each use four AA batteries. So right off the bat, that's another $20-25 you'll need to spend.

The ceiling lights are similar in design to many smoke detectors. You mount a plastic plate on the wall or ceiling, and then twist the unit onto the mounting plate. But with four C batteries in them, they're on the heavy side, and those screws and anchors are pretty small! I'd advise mounting high on the wall rather than the ceiling. If you do put them on the ceiling, make sure it's someplace where they won't do much damage if they fall.

The path lights have small plastic plates that you can mount to the wall, and the units essentially then hang from two small hooks. They also include a piece of double-sided tape for indoor installations where you don't want to permanently mount them, but even though the path lights are very light, I wouldn't trust double-sided tape.

Just installed the product so I cannot rate durability, but I can say that I am impressed by the design and construction. Yes, you will pay a little more for this system, but it provides you with the ability to service the batteries in every piece of equipment. Many other products have sealed internal batteries which, once they fail, cannot be easily replaced if they can even be replaced. Solid construction and a nice feel to the switches on the control unit. I am not a person easily impressed, but this is a good American built product at a fair price.

By chance I purchased this before Hurricane Sandy hit. The power thankfully only went out for about 30 seconds, but the lights kicked on immediately around the house. Easy to setup and use. While it worked out, I sort of wished that the stair illuminating (vice the ceiling)units would plug into the wall and charge like the remote. But that said I was able to put one in a very creative spot that wouldn't have worked if it was a plug in unit.
