BeON Home Customer Reviews
"I have been using my 9 BeOn bulbs for 3 weeks now. I really like them. They loaded on the Andriod app on my Samsung Galaxy S5 quickly. It was an easy set up. I had no trouble training the app to listen for my doorbell. I have a loud siren for a smoke alarm and the app recognized the alarm quickly as well. So far I really like the idea that when I am away it will appear that I am home. I'm confident that the next time my electricity goes out I will be ready.
I will not be in the dark and I will not have to run around lighting candles. I'm in love with the idea that if there is a fire my lights will automatically come on to help light the way out. I think the doorbell function is a really great idea. I like how the bulbs come on in the order I select, so it seems like I'm home and headed to the front door. I really wish that there was a way to have just the doorbell part work without having to set it to away. That way when I'm home and someone rings the bell I can have my path automatically lit as I make my way to the door. I've had a little trouble with the Android app loading and finding the bulbs at times, but hopefully this will get sorted out with the next Android update. The app seems to load pretty consistently on the Iphone app. Overall this is a product I can see great potential for. Now that I have the key fob, I don't have to worry about the app loading. I just push the away or home button. I look forward to any new features they dream up in the future."

“Before breaking into a home, burglars will often knock or ring the bell to see if somebody’s home. But you don’t have to answer the door to scare them off — just turning on a light is often enough to make them move on. And with BeON LED Bulbs, you don’t even need to be home to flick a switch…”
"The product was easy to install. Total set up 5 mins. This time of year in the south, the rain comes almost every day so it was awesome to turn on my outside lights from my vehicle or from inside the home during rain storms so I wouldn't have to fumble with my keys and be out in the elements any longer than I had to be."

Update May 23 2016: "I wanted to add that the longer I have these bulbs, the more uses I find for them. I can't imagine being without them."
Original Review: "The area I live in gets very dark and so light is really important to my security. Hate the idea of it looking dark in my house when I’m gone. My bulbs are installed in the den, office and dining room in the front of the house. I did not have an appropriate socket for one of the BeON bulbs so I ended up purchasing a lamp. Love the slow fade feature and use it every day."

"While our home is protected by a security system, my husband and I do not normally have the system turned on unless we are going away from home. Even then, our system is limited to doors and windows. This is why I was so excited to accept the invitation to test the BeON Home Protection System, as it provides much more protection for our home, such as training the light bulbs to hear sounds and they will turn on!
Setting up the system is very easy to do. Simply follow the directions you received with your system. The complete process takes just a few minutes. The hardest part of installing the system myself was the decision of where to place the bulbs. A few days after installing the system, my husband and I were out after dark. I placed the system in the Away mode and upon our arrival at home; the lights were already turned on."
