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 with the 6 Light Housings that are 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 it has a spring built into its casing if you wish to install into timber, like your deck for example, just simply push the light head into the hole and the spring will keep it there. If you wish to use them in-ground, then you can position the plastic housings (included) into the ground and the lights sit neatly in the housing.
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 have to worry about!
Makes sense right!?
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.
need 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 slip each housing over each light head and connect all lights. You may wish to consider using lengths of conduit if placing in concrete, just will make the cables neater and easier to work with. 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 42mm Round (F106) Model…
This model, along with the F107 are our biggest lights in the range. With a 42mm diameter round face and extremely heavy duty Stainless casing with spring, it could be used in Decks, but also comes with a housing that makes it possible to be used in concrete slabs, paving, pebble mix footpaths and edges of driveways, you name it.
As its IP67 Rated like the rest, they would look amazing around a pool/pond/water feature!
It is also our brightest of the bunch, using 9 x 2835 LED’s at 3W, with the 6 in the box, thats 18W, so you could expand this kit out to 10 Lights in total if you need.
This little beauty is designed to be used in both Residential and Commercial applications.A 6 Light Kit, including Drill-Bit, Housings & Delivery to your door is just $329.99. Extra light heads and cables available too.
