BeON Home Adds New Anti-Theft Updates
BeON Home is introducing new features to its home protection system, created to provide preventative security, daily safety and emergency lighting. New features include the UL approval of BeON's LED security bulbs for outdoor usage as well as for use in fully enclosed fixtures. BeON customers will also soon be able to add more activity to their lighting replay schedule via an update to the BeON mobile app.
BeON bulbs are now UL-approved for use in outdoor light fixtures including porch light, lamp-post or garage fixtures, as well as fully-enclosed lighting fixtures. According to BeOn, this is a unique feature as most LED and smart bulbs are limited to indoor use with unenclosed fixtures.
The BeON smart modules also address security as they are created to automatically learn a user’s everyday lighting patterns and replay them while the user is away to make it look like a home is occupied. If a would-be intruder checks to see if a user is home by ringing the doorbell, the BeON smart modules hear the doorbell and turn lights on sequentially as if the user is awakening and moving throughout the house.
In May, a new app update will allow BeON users to be able to add activity to their lighting replay schedule. The update includes a new feature that allows users to add lighting sequences to the everyday lighting replay program. The update is intended to deliver more variety to the lighting activity, to ward off burglars who may be looking for repetition as a sign of lighting automation.
"Security is in our DNA and we are focused on making the BeON System the gold standard for security lighting. With this in mind, we have secured UL approval to enable new outdoor use cases and we're adding a security customization feature that lets our customers schedule convincing lighting activity to even further simulate occupancy," Alexei Erchak, CEO of BeON Home, said in a statement.
The BeON Home Protection System is now available at BeON Home and Amazon for $199.00 and through select security dealers. The BeON system comes with three smart modules and three LED light bulbs as well as the free mobile app. Additional BeON bulbs and modules are available for $75.00 each and can be added to the system for indoor or outdoor use.
The BeON Bulbs have been approved for use in UL1598 wet location outdoor fixtures as well as the UL1993 and CSA C22.2#1993 standard for use in enclosed fixtures. Android and iOS users will be able to update the BeON Mobile App from the app store to access the recently released features in May 2016.
