Advice for clever LED outdoor lighting

around your home & garden

A well thought-out lighting plan for your outdoor area is important in many ways. With cool light you ensure safety around your house, whereas warm light creates a cosy, sociable mood in the garden – for example, during an outdoor celebration or get-together with family and friends. This requires a harmonious lighting plan. With or without embellishments, classic or modern: your house, your garden, your style. And with the latest LED technology, you can say goodbye to excessive electricity bills!

An overview of your LED

outdoor lighting plan:

Outdoor lighting

  • LED exterior wall luminaires are available as direct and indirect light. Wall or canopy-mounted outdoor lights not only illuminate patios with energy-saving LED lamps, but are also ideal for house entrances or driveways. Equipped with double light output, outdoor lighting accentuates your home beautifully. And thanks to adjustable heads, you can even deploy spot lighting.
  • LED pathway lights are available as lanterns, bollards or pedestal lights. They will illuminate and guide you down a path or drive. With outdoor lighting, your patio can be framed with money-saving LEDs or you can highlight your flowerbeds.
  • LED light chains are the ideal way of letting your lighting creativity run wild in your garden. The exterior lights not only accentuate your garden highlights, but also emit a pleasant glow.
  • LED floodlights have a very high luminous power and optimal light distribution. They can be ideal for garage lighting, for example.
  • With mobile LED outdoor lights, you are not dependent on mains power. You can therefore light up dark corners of the house and garden in an instant. Choose from outdoor lights powered by batteries or equipped with solar technology.

your questions answered

1. Which colour temperature should I choose for outdoor lighting?

Warm white outdoor lighting with a colour temperature up to 3,300 Kelvin produces cosy light – such as outdoor lighting for a patio and garden. For sufficient brightness and safety, neutral white exterior lighting provides between 3,300 and 5,300 Kelvin – ideal for house entrances.

2. What brightness should my outdoor lighting have?

400 to 600 lumens are enough for pleasant outdoor lighting. For a powerful outdoor spotlight, you should choose more than 1,000 lumens.

3. Which lightbulbs are suitable for outdoor lighting?

LED bulbs are highly recommended for outdoor lighting. They score well on energy-saving and usually have a long life.

4. What do I need to know about IP ratings?

Outdoor lights should at least conform to IP44. If lights are exposed to strong jets of water, such as through a lawn sprinkler, a minimum of IP65 is required.
