Wireless Environment invents technology and manufactures products that enable LED lights to perform effectively when off the electrical grid. With Wireless Environment's technology, LED luminaires and lamps can determine the optimal times to draw power from the electrical lines and when to go off-grid. Reasons to go off-grid include: Power outages; unreliable power; an spike in the cost of energy; and heavy demand on the grid.
Wireless Environment provides design services for lighting manufacturers looking to gain a competitive advantage through proprietary power management features and off-grid operation.
Wireless Environment has also developed and launched a line of battery-powered LED light fixtures that improve safety and security and operate during a power failure. These products – under the Mr. Beams™ brand - use Wireless Environment's patent-pending power management system and have RF capabilities to network throughout the home.
Wireless Environment has three product lines:
Mr. Beams™ (www.mrbeams.com) is a line of indoor / outdoor portable LED light fixtures. The Mr. Beams products can be attached anywhere in minutes without an electrician or wires. Motion sensors provide light when you need it for better safety and security.
ReadyBright™ (www.readybright.com) is an wireless power outage lighting system that runs on batteries, installs in minutes, and instantly provides hours of bright clear light throughout your home in the event of a power outage.
SwitchSense™ (www.switchsense.com – coming soon) is module that turns LED luminaires and lamps into power failure lights. SwitchSense modules detect a power outage without wiring to the main power, and provide instant power to the light source.
