Did We Mention YOU Can Do This YOURSELF….
DIY Instructions….and YES, we do mean DIY!
Please read how easy this DIY Kit is to install, just 8 simple steps!!!
Q: What’s this 6 ‘Smart Springs’ I get in the kit, what the…?
A:With this model, due to its robust build, it can be used in just about any material. You could use it for in-ground applications (Concrete, Pavers, Pebble Mulches, etc), as well as in timber (Decks/Stairs/Walls, etc). With this in mind, it has been designed to be completely flexible in its uses, so if you wish to install into timber, like your deck for example, just simply slip a Smart Spring over each light head and push into the hole and the spring will keep it there. These are included in your kit, should you need them or not. That just makes sense to us to not make this an optional extra for you to worry about!
Ensure you have an external weather proof power socket where you intend to install your lights. If you do not have any outdoor power source near where your lights are to placed, please have your local Electrician do this for you. Please DO NOT run an extension lead out to your lights, this is NOT safe as it is not a weather proof connection.
Layout your lights and measure where you will place them and ensure the holes will be drilled at the correct spacing. We find that 1m or less between each light creates a great effect.
For Timber Applications (Decks, Stairs, etc)
Using the drill-bit included in the box, drill your holes.
Fit your Smart Springs to your lights. Feed the cable-end of the lights into the holes and press the light head down into the hole to ensure they are all seated properly. There is no need to glue or silicone the lights in, thats what the spring is for. This spring will hold the lights tight in their new home!
Underneath the deck, connect the lights by first observing the two arrows on the plugs are aligned, then press the male plug and the female socket together and push in tight so the rubber weather seal is firmly seated. Screw together finger-tight.
For In-Ground Applications:
Lay out on the ground and connect all lights. Make sure the socket fitting between each light head is secure and the rubber seal is in place. As they will be put in the ground, they will be in constant moisture, so ensure the seal is tightened well by hand only.
Excavate to the depth required, lay your lights in the ground and backfill.
Manoeuvre your lights into the correct position.
Once all lights are connected together, connect the Driver and Controller to the lights, observing the diagram in the installation guide. DO NOT PLUG INTO POWER YET.
Now you need to mount your Driver and Controller using the screws provided, close enough to your power source so your cord will reach. These are IP67 Rated, so it is fine for them to get wet, just ensure the Driver and Controller are off the ground and not submerged in water.
IMPORTANT NOTE: You need to also ensure that the remote control receiver (the small cord on the Controller) is IN DIRECT LINE OF SIGHT to the remote control. The remote control has a range of 3-5 metres but will not operate the lights if there is no line of sight between it and the receiver.
You are now ready to plug in the Driver and switch on the power socket. You can now remove the plastic insert in the battery compartment of the remote control and select the mode/colour that you desire. Enjoy!
More on the 28mm (F103) Model…
He measures 22mm across the lens and including the 316 Stainless Steel frame he is 28mm in diameter.
You will notice that this model contains a full stainless ca sing and has no spring as part of that casing – ‘How will I use it as a deck light if I want, how will it stay put?’ Excellent question! Have no fear, included in your box will be 6 clip-on springs if you choose to add some serious sophistication to your deck, steps, plinths, sleepers……But, being built how he is, he can be used as you see him here, in garden beds, amongst river pebbles, decorative gravels, whatever the material is, this light can be used in it.
Once again, he is IP67 Rated, Remote controlled colour changeable and expandable.The F103 6-Light Kit, Free Drill Bit and springs (should you need them) and free delivery to your door is just $209.99.
