Inception Lighting’s PermaEave Lighting System is a permanent installation of direct color changing lighting to line the perimeter of a home or business. When integrated as a security feature for a residential, commercial or governmental property, PermaEave provides a security measure to deter theft and better inform the public and first responders as to the location and nature of an emergency.
The company is working with the city of Southlake to develop a color code to indicate various emergencies. The color code communicates to first responders and the community whether the emergency is fire- or police-related. The code is also useful for schools, hospitals and universities to communicate “duck and cover” or “evacuate,” especially in the wake of frequent school shootings, says Inception Lighting’s founder, Scott Eddins.
“PermaEave provides a safer, more enjoyable and more inclusive community,” Eddins says. “Lighting is especially useful and important for the 26 million hearing-impaired people in the U.S., who face unique challenges. Any opportunity to provide improved measures to ensure safety is vital for a responsible community.”
PermaEave can be installed in sections or zones, which is useful in the case of multitenant locations. “Audible alarms are at times ineffective and can be misleading in cases when echo is present, while light is both effective in illuminating a scene and making it difficult to make a mistake as to the location of the light source,” Eddins says. “This lighting system benefits everyone. It represents added security, aesthetic beauty, energy savings, and safety for every community.”
Every year there are marked increases in injuries and even death to people installing holiday lighting. PermaEave is low-voltage and uses one-third of the electricity of LED C9 bulbs, but it is 30 times more efficient than incandescent holiday lights. Electrical fires and electrocution are not issues with this product. The lights also don’t give off ultraviolet light and consequently don’t attract bugs in the summer.
Eddins is a former Texas Christian University tennis player and professional tennis player. Married, with three sons, ages four and under, he and his family live in Southlake.
