Prior to CES 2017, the California-based responsive lighting firm Stack announced the beta launch of an innovative technology designed to alert people of any disturbances in their homes while they are away.

Referred to as Stack s Home Awareness service, the feature plans to integrate seamlessly into the company s existing product line — such as its Stack Classic bulbs and Stack Downlight.

In addition to the Home Awareness announcement, the company also says it shipped the first batch of bulbs to pre-order customers and now sells the line to any interested buyer via its website.

With Home Awareness, owners of either of Stack s lighting options can rest assured that their light bulbs are keeping a keen watch on their household throughout the day.

Should any disturbance arise or a sudden change in occupancy occur, users have the ability to receive a smartphone alert to clue them in.

What is particularly impressive about Home Awareness is that it allows anyone to install a home monitoring system without shelling out any big bucks for an advanced setup — no monthly fees, no expensive installation, plain and simple.
