LED floodlights are great for security, working outside and reducing energy bills. Our handy guide will let you know what you should watch out for before you make your purchase.
LED floodlights have many uses, from security purposes to porch lighting, and can be utilized both domestically and commercially.
The best thing with led floodlight specifically is they consume way less energy than, while still giving you an amount of light that can only be matched through a huge quantity of bulbs or less efficient halogen floodlights. Also, they are created to last 50,000 hours which is far beyond their halogen counterparts.
You will find a host of additional features available too, including motion sensors and timers. See below
At LEDHut, we stock portable and solar floodlights, much more of which at a later time inside the article.
First off, location is vital. How much area needs lit up? Are you intruding on your neighbour’s property? Will you be distorting the vision of oncoming drivers? You are able to generally steer clear of the latter simply by making sure the floodlight is pointed downwards in a 22° angle. However, these are all important factors to consider before mounting your floodlight.
As with most LED lights, floodlight brightness is most accurately measured in lumens, instead of watts. As an illustration, a 10W LED floodlight will offer the same brightness (900 lumens) like a 60W halogen, but it’ll consume a lot less energy.
Some LED floodlights come with additional sensors that will detect motion, be set to remain on for some time after detecting the motion, and can be tuned in the future on at dusk.
All of these have their own own advantages. Motion and dusk to dawn detection is brilliant for security purposes, while a timer will ensure no energy is wasted by shutting off automatically. Obviously, you will still must consider your neighbours privacy while using the sensor.
