The Mr BeamsĀ® Story

In 2004, friends David Levine and Mike Recker were looking for a simple way to light a closet. When they couldn’t find a solution on the market, they made their own and Mr Beams was born. With the goal to easily light areas around the home that would otherwise be expensive or inconvenient, the product line launched with a wireless spotlight, step light and ceiling light. Each battery-powered light installed in less than 5 minutes and eliminated the need for an electrician, offering a brand new way for consumers to light their homes. Since then, Mr Beams has grown to provide more than 30 lighting solutions to increase home safety, security and convenience.
