LED floodlights are ideal for security, working outside and reducing energy bills. Our handy guide will let you know what you should watch out for prior to making your purchase.
LED floodlights have several uses, from security purposes to porch lighting, and can be used both domestically and commercially.
The best thing with LED G24 PL particularly is because they consume a lot less energy than, while still providing you with an accumulation light that could simply be matched by using a huge volume of bulbs or less efficient halogen floodlights. Also, they are built to last 50,000 hours that is far over their halogen counterparts.
You can find a host of extra features available too, including motion sensors and timers. See below
At LEDHut, we also stock portable and solar floodlights, a greater portion of which at a later time inside the article.
First off, location is important. Exactly how much area needs lit up? Are you intruding on the neighbour’s property? Are you distorting the vision of oncoming drivers? You are able to generally stay away from the latter simply by making sure the floodlight is pointed downwards at the 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 example, a 10W LED floodlight will provide out the same brightness (900 lumens) like a 60W halogen, but it’ll consume far less energy.
Some LED floodlights feature additional sensors that could detect motion, be set to keep on for a certain amount of time after detecting the motion, and may be tuned to come on at dusk.
All of these have their 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 still have to consider your neighbours privacy when using the sensor.
At LEDHut, the sensors on our floodlights is capable of doing all 3. Please see our visual guide below to provide a perception based on how they work:
The advantage of G24 pl lamp is that they all have IP66 ratings, meaning they’re waterproof, so that you can safely making use of them outside in every weather types.
So whether they’re placed by way of a pool, car park or possibly a garden, they’ll be safe for use all year long.
If you don’t require quite a lot of light, or perhaps you don’t have accessibility to running power, then solar floodlights are definitely the answer.
They come with built-in sensors that detect motion and have no ongoing running costs. This makes them excellent for use in sheds, alleyways and hard-to-reach areas. And they’re incredibly easy to install too.
You can indeed. They’re perfect should you work on the go, camping or in a garage/workshop where entry to power is difficult.
At LEDHut, our portable dexrpky03 are completely weatherproof and enables you to light small and large areas.
They’re effective at producing 4 hours of remote light before they need charged from a mains adaptor or car lighter adaptor, each of which include the floodlight itself.
Just like standard led floodlight, portable versions have similar 50,000 hour life-spans and consume a fraction of the power in comparison with halogen and metal halide floods.
Slimline floodlights at LEDHut cost between £17 and £100 according to their wattage. You can aquire a portable floodlight for between £30 and £70, while a solar flood will definitely cost approximately £11.
Please remember, when comparing prices against halogen floods, that LED lights last 20 times longer as well as dramatically reduce energy cost, so you make back your investment quickly.
