Outdoor LED Lighting = Efficient Lighting
You may know that Outdoor LED Lights can be an efficient lighting option for your home, but just how efficient?
Our Outdoor LED Lighting is 12v, meaning it is an extremely safe and efficient way to light your outdoors. With each Outdoor LED Light using as little as 0.3W, this means that each 6 light kit can use as little as 1.8W in total. When you compare that to a 60W Incandescent light bulb or even a 20W Compact Fluorescent Energy Saver Bulb you may have in your indoor lamp for example – you can see how little energy your Deck lighting will consume!
‘IP67 Rating’….What does that mean??
The IP Rating (or Ingress Protection Rating) consists of the letters IP followed by two digits and an optional letter. As defined in international standard IEC 60529, it classifies the degrees of protection provided against the intrusion of solid objects (including body parts like hands and fingers), dust, accidental contact, and water in electrical enclosures. The standard aims to provide users more detailed information than vague marketing terms such as waterproof.
The first number, in this case ‘6’ represents the highest Dust Immersion rating, meaning it is completely sealed off to solid foreign objects like dirt/dust.
The second number represents its capacity to keep out water, under a certain situation. In this case ‘7’, means that our lights are rated to not only withstand a jet of water from a pressure washer (handy when pressure washing the deck at the start of the deck season), but also can handle full immersion in water up to 1m.
Now when we say our lights are IP67, we mean the Lights, the LED Driver (Transformer) & The RGB Controller (the box that controls the colour changing) – Our Entire Kit is IP67 Rated!!!
Beware of some competitors products out there – they may say they are IP67, but that may relate to the lights only! The Driver and RGB Controller, must be kept out of reach of any strong jets of water and flooding conditions!!

‘RGB Colour Changing’….What does that mean??
RGB is an acronym for ‘Red Green Blue’. When we talk about LED Lights being RGB, this means that inside the light head there is an LED chip inside that can turn Red, Green and Blue. Some models actually have seperate LED’s of each colour inside the head.
Let’s cast our minds back to the High School science days to understand it.
If you remember Mr. Whats-His-Name up the front talking about ‘Primary Colours’…? Well, this is what he was talking about.
When you mix Red, Green & Blue in different amounts, you can get all the colours of the rainbow – Yellows, Pinks, Purples, etc. Including if you mix the Primary Colours in exact same amounts, you get White!
Now, connected to these RGB lights is whats called an RGB Controller, which is basically a tiny computer that reads what you select on the remote control and arranges how much Red, Green & Blue to omit, in order to get the colour you have selected.
Our LED Deck & In-Ground Lights come complete with a remote – Select from 16 colours, including White!
