EVENT #23 FOR MY ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY CELEBRATION - REVIEW WITH GIVEAWAY FOR MR BEAMS (WORLDWIDE, ENDS 02/15/13)



I contacted Mr Beams about reviewing their products a few months back and was very excited when they agreed to send me two of their Motion Sensing Step Lights to help us with transitioning Daniella from our bed to her own bed. The idea was to place on in the hallway outside of her bedroom so when she wandered down the hallway during the night to come nurse she could see where she was going. The other one was placed in our master bathroom. The Step Lights come with a strip of adhesive to hang them on the wall.

Unfortunately, from the beginning we experienced trouble with these lights. They would not stay hung on the wall and when they fell, they damaged the walls as well :(  I literally never even got a chance to take a picture of them hung on my wall because they first fell within 12 hours of being hung :(

Hallway 

Wall damage in the hallway - if you look closely, you can see a BIG bubble under the surface of the paint from the weight of the light pulling the paint off my wall!




There was some minor damage to the wall in the toilet room of my master bathroom as well.

I even tried using Scotch Mounting Putty...

That did not hold them up very well either. :(

I contacted Karen, my contact at Mr Beams, to let her know not only about the wall damage, but that the hallway light had malfunctioned. Brand new batteries are supposed to last about one year in these lights. Ours lasted barely a month. The lights are motion sensored (which is really cool) but this one just started randomly turning on and staying on and flickering a lot and wore the batteries out super quick.

Karen was awesome. She immediately offered to ship me a new one AND a three pack of Motion-Sensing Stick Anywhere Lights that you can just set on a table, counter, etc instead of mounting it. She even included free batteries for me for all of them. She really went above my expectations. I just wish my wall damage could be fixed :(


I put one on the tv in Daniella's bedroom 

I put one on the small table we have in our small loft/hallway area which is across from Daniella's room

(The third one, we placed on a kitchen counter)

These sensor lights are MUCH better! We LOVE these!!
