Part smart-bulb, part home security device, BeOn bulbs were developed to give the appearance that your home is lived in while you're away. Taking lighting to the next level, they'll turn on at the sound of a doorbell, thwarting would-be burglars, or light up if they sense a fire alarm go off, so you can exit your abode safely. And with battery back-up, you can be sure you'll be covered even if there's a power outage while you're on vacation.
