Invented By a Firefighter: The World’s Safest
Concealed Emergency Light — Installs at ANY Height
"As a firefighter, I've seen the tragic results of ineffective emergency lighting. By placing emergency lighting closer to
the floor, below the smoke from a fire, you are providing occupants greater visibility, and a safer environment." lllllllllllllllllllBrian Corbett, lllllllllllllllllllFirefighter, Inventor
When the AC power is ON, SentryLight's internal battery is charged and ready-to-go. Upon a power failure, the lens is driven out automatically and the powerful Xenon lamps come on. Firefighters use Xenon lamps in their professional flashlights because they effectively cut through smoke.

Finally, compact emergency lighting that's virtually invisible... until it's needed. Introducing the first concealed emergency light that you would be proud to design into your commercial project: hotels, restaurants, office buildings, even your own living room:
• Virtually invisible — looks just like a light switch plate
• GREEN — integrated battery conforms to the Recoverable Battery Recycling Program
• UL 924 rated — tested under the most rigorous conditions
Commercial Applications: Fourteen Countries
Whether it’s the self-contained battery unit or the remote head tied to a battery backup with low-voltage wiring, EgressLite is the most economical emergency lighting solution in these and other locations:
When asked why he selected SentryLight for his emergency lighting needs, a SentryLight customer stated:
“SentryLight fixtures provided the best solution to our need for clean, concealed emergency lighting in both wall and ceiling applications. The fixtures were smaller and more economical than other concealed emergency lights. Installation and inspections went smoothly. We will definitely specify SentryLight emergency lights again.”

Emergency Lighting in Residential Applications
Why do construction codes require egress lighting in commercial spaces, but not in residential spaces? Designed to be placed at the same height as a lightswitch plate, SentryLight is the only serious emergency lighting solution for the home.
When asked why they selected SentryLight for their cutom built homes, Joy and J.R. say: “We decided we wanted serious residential emergency lighting. It was an upgrade we weren't going to do without. "
SentryLight Compared to Other Emergency Lights
For over two decades, there has been little innovation in the emergency lighting industry. The conventional emergency lighting design — where the battery pack attaches to the outside of the wall with two “bug eye” incandescent lamps — has been modified again and again with little overall impact. Architects hate the “bug eyes”. The SentryLight design takes the battery pack and places it behind the wall, and replaces the “bug eyes” with Xenon-powered lamps. Compact, reliable and able to cut through smoke, Xenon lamps enable a smaller design, while providing bright, even illumination. SentryLight designs are patent protected in the U.S. and Internationally.
ADA Compliant Design Advantage
Building design that accomodates the physically impaired has become law in nations around the world. SentryLight emergency lighting is approved for use in hospitals, nursing homes, assisted living facilities where wheelchairs are in use, and is Americans with Disabilities Act compliant.

SentryLight formed around the 9/11 tragedy, when Brian Corbett, a volunteer Fire Chief with the Cecil County Fire Department in Maryland, and Adam Lilien, Senior Vice President of Marketing at MBNA, formed a vision: to address the problems with the field of emergency lighting.
After years of development, the partners launched the company at LightFair 2005 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City. With final Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) approval in mid-2008, SentryLight began calling on architects, engineers and lighting specifiers.
With great interest from the market place, the first orders were for some office buildings, restaurants and residences. What was apparent was that the field was missing this product's features: affordable, concealed, and reliable emergency lights that are designed to be installed in proximity to the floor... where International Buildings Codes require the illumination.
With installations in 14 countries and counting, SentryLight is committed to changing the way we think about emergency lighting.
