Outdoor home lighting might serve any of a number of purposes, and often serves two or three. For instance, a security light with a PIR movement sensor not only alerts you to the fact that someone is on your property; it might also assist you in fishing out keys and unlocking the front door in the pitch black
Some of the various forms of outdoor lighting for the home might include post and pedestal lights or walkover lights for the garden, candle effect lights, solar-powered lights, PIR or Photocell triggered lights (many incorporate both), straight floodlights, planter lights, wall washers, LED rope lights and flexistrips. Never before has it been so easy to revamp your garden and get creative on a plain lawn.
Whatever plan you have in mind for your garden, or indeed anyone that intends intruding on your property, you’ll need to consider the light’s fitness for task. All outdoor lights come with an IP rating, which in the very least should signify a resistance to inclement weather. The starting point is often IP43 or IP44, which means imperviousness to sprays of water. Climbing up the scale will mean complete resistance to dust or strong jets of water, and in some cases the light might be submersible to a certain depth. So, look out for the Ingress Protection rating!
Low Voltage advantage
Some lights, like several of the LED plug and play kits, involve the use of an LV transformer or LED driver. The advantage of these installations is largely that they are easy to install and pose no risk to life in the case of an accident - invaluable peace of mind if you have children and pets rooting around! With mains-powered outdoor lighting you have the extra hassle of having to bury the cable.
Many of our models include PIR movement sensors, which automatically switch on a light to illuminate any would-be intruder or visitor. During unsocial hours you’re likely to be able to eliminate one of the two, and hopefully deter the other. The PIR sensor can often be modified with an in-built Photocell so that it is only triggered during a certain level of ambient light. You can also typically set the duration of the light once triggered.
