How our SK636 & SK638 Lights-Out Emergency Lights are used by governments, healthcare, hotels and more worldwide

Emergency light testimonial banner

Every so often we notice an order that grabs our attention.

For example in September 2017, in the aftermath of Hurricane Irma, we were contacted by the president of a Florida-based development company. He needed 24 of our longest-lasting emergency LED backup lights delivered within 48 hours to resume operations at one of their beachfront hotels. Amazon was sold-out (no surprise there, under the circumstances), and his guests were literally left in the dark.

We helped them out, and it’s a great story to share. But they’re not the only ones.

Hospitals, hotels, government buildings, condos, apartments… They all need backup lighting for emergencies and power failures. Building codes require hard-wired lights that are super expensive and provide only the bare minimum of lighting (as little as 30 minutes of light at a cost of over $6/minute). It’s not cost-effective to provide real, long-lasting, site-wide lighting using those units.

On the other hand, Ideal Security’s battery-powered emergency LED lights aren’t designed to satisfy the code requirements. They’re designed instead to be cost-effective complements. affordable enough. With dead simple installation, costs as low as $0.02/minute and providing up to 48 hours of continuous light you can use our lamps to dramatically increase the safety of our facility and provide peace-of-mind for both staff and guests.

Read more below about how commercial sites around the world are using Ideal Security Lights-Out battery-powered backup lights.


Dallas, Texas

When: December 2018

Who: A 1,600-room hotel in the Market Center and Design District with over 600,000 ft2 of event space

Why: To be used as table-top lamps in the case of a power outage, complementing the code-required exit lighting already in place which provides only the bare minimum of lighting.

We have a large facility and sometimes when the power goes out for any reason at night it can get a little dark. The lights will be stored in our fire control room and will be dispersed by our security personnel in the event of a power outage.

Delray Beach, Florida

When: September 2017

Who: A beachfront hotel & spa

Why: In the aftermath of hurriance Irma, with power unreliable and no ETA on recovery, this hotel needed high-capacity additional lighting to get back up and running.

This is very important so we can resume operations after the storm.


Soldotna, Alaska

When: October 2018

Who:  The lab in a full-service hospital

Why: The lab was unable to hook up to the main hospital backup generator.

We need so many because we have to put them in every room- it’s a safety issue if we have a needle in a patient’s arm and the power goes out. It took quite a bit of research to find something that we were happy with.

Northern Haiti

When: January 2016

Who: The medical volunteers’ residence

Why: With a low budget and international volunteers regularly rotating in and out, they needed reliable, high-capacity, and cost-effective lights in the common areas.

We have about 400 volunteers a year and operate solely on generator power which goes off sometimes. These are important to the safety of the volunteers – especially since they are unfamiliar with the layout. I have other power failure lights in key places at the hospital, but not any with the capability of your product.


Page, Arizona

When: February 2019

Who: A federal government bureau in Page, Arizona

Why: They placed them “through out the facility so in the event of an emergency or power failure our personnel would have light to find their way to safety.”
