Our newest addition to the Stick Anywhere Family – the Amber Stick Anywhere Light – might have you wondering what makes it different from our original Stick Anywhere Light. Simply put, the Amber Stick Anywhere Light has one distinct purpose: to provide light for safety and convenience with as little disruption to your sleep as possible.
Because the Amber Night Light has a wavelength greater than 550 nm (an optimal wavelength for not interrupting sleep or suppressing melatonin), it was made as a night lighting solution in areas close to where you sleep. If you need to get up during the night, the light provides a gentle automatic amber light, as opposed to a harsh bright light with blue wavelengths that have been proven to suppress melatonin, which helps regulate our sleep and wake cycles.
So, improve the quality of your sleep by installing the Amber Stick Anywhere Light in these 3 areas:
1. Bedrooms – the soft light won’t disturb sleep patterns if you need to get up during the night.
2. Hallways – the light is still bright enough to provide safety lighting in hallways if you need to make a trip to the bathroom or check on the kids.
3. Bathrooms – the automatic light with auto shut off is perfect for quick trips to the bathroom, or even as a gentle transition from sleeping to waking.
Mike Recker, Mr Beams CTO, uses the Amber Stick Anywhere Light in his hallways. Watch the video below to hear why!

Now that spring is officially here to stay, our minds are on our home landscaping projects. After all, there’s a reason spring is called the season of renewal – the ground is thawed, the days are longer and the perennials start to bloom.
