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!
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 24mm (F102) Model...
This fella is a Polished Aluminium Deck Light and measures 24mm across the top, with a 12mm lens width. He is also quite deep at 38.5mm, so can be used in deep timber, garden beds, pavers, concrete, wherever you like really.
As you see pictured here, with the removable smart-spring that I've spoken about previously with the F103, if you want to use this light in a garden bed or somewhere where a spring is not needed, just don't install it, however it's in the box should you need it.
This model, along with most of our range are colour-changeable via remote control. Still IP67 rated, meaning our LED is completely dust-proof and water proof via high pressure jets of water (so no issues when it comes time to pressure wash the deck!), comes in a set of 6, complete with drill-bit, just $209.99.
As always, extra light heads and cabling should you need it, is on hand.
Extra light heads and cabling for this model will be here soon.....
