Disaster-proofing the CNET Smart Home


“The appeal of BeOn bulbs is multilayered: they learn your lighting patterns, so even when you’re away from home for the evening, it looks like someone is walking around inside. They can learn to respond to auditory stimuli, like a doorbell or fire alarm, reacting however you want in any given situation. But the feature I like most is their built-in battery pack. Even when the power goes out, you can turn your lamps on and they’ll stay on for hours (though the time they last is predicated on the brightness level you use).” - CNET, December 11, 2015
