How to select Outdoor Lighting Accessories
Installing outdoor lighting fixtures can become a real nightmare if you don’t have the necessary mounting accessories and equipment. The following guide will teach you how to select the best accessories to fit your needs. The most commonly used lighting accessories that help with outdoor lights’ installation are wireless controllers, adaptors, lens fixtures in addition to chains and poles.
In order to select the perfect controller for your outdoor lights you should specify the features that it should offer. For example, you might want to have the option of simply switching the lights on/off without the necessity to leave the house. You may also need to dim the outdoor lights in order to create a romantic or festive ambiance. Depending on the purpose of a controller, a device should be selected. In addition to selecting the operation modes, it is important to ensure that the controller meets the installation requirements and is compatible with your outdoor lights.
Various lighting adaptors may come in handy when you need to install new fixtures with old sockets. Before you select an item like that, compare its size with the fixture’s specifications and ensure that they match.
If you are planning to install hanging outdoor lights, you will definitely need some poles and chains. Remember that the higher the location is where your lamps will be installed, the longer the mounting chain or pole should be. The space between the lighting fixture and the object below it should be at least 30-inches.
Why do I need more than one outdoor light?
Outdoor lighting fixtures are installed for your own safety. Many people get serious injuries because there is not enough light to illuminate the area outside their homes. There’s no need to install multiple lights outside your house if a single fixture can illuminate the porch, front and garage doors. However, such lamps are very powerful and spend more energy than three smaller lighting fixtures would. Calculating the operating cost of each lighting fixture will help you know the amount of money you will spend on their maintenance.
Where do I install outdoor lighting fixtures?
Front, back and garage doors, as well as walkways and doorsteps are the locations that should be illuminated for your own safety. There are countless options that you can select from, starting with flood lights and ending with hanging RLM fixtures. Other that that, you can install outdoor lighting fixtures to highlight the certain parts of the house and landscape or to create a lighting ambiance of your dreams.
