Mr Beams Wireless Lighting
Wireless lighting leader Mr Beams offers several new products with higher lumen outputs, bold designs and even easier wireless installation and operation. The High Performance Security Light, available in both a NetBright version and standard version, provides 500 lumens of battery-powered light with two adjustable heads and easy installation anywhere in less than five minutes. The NetBright model contains NetBright technology that allows the lights to communicate with each other, so when one light detects motion, all others on the network activate. At 300 lumens, the UltraBright Ceiling Light is the brightest indoor light in the lineup with a modern design and soft diffuser that provides a wider coverage area ideal for large closets, showers, hallways and sheds.
The MB360XT Next Generation Spotlight features a lumen and design upgrade from the previous model with brighter, bolder outdoor lighting that provides 200 lumens and with a reflective face to create a 50 percent wider coverage area. Other 2016 Mr Beams product launches include two additions to the night light family: the Amber Stick Anywhere Light, which emits a soft amber light that has been shown to be less disruptive to sleep than traditional white night lights; and Stand Anywhere Light, a no-installation light that adds safety around the home. Mr Beams also launched the Slim Safety Light, a unique lighting solution for above doorways and other cramped areas. All lights contain motion activation, auto shut-off and a light sensor to help prolong battery life. Visit booth 2111 or mrbeams.com.
