Illuminate Your Home’s Story with Outdoor LED Strip Lights: Waterproof and Weatherproof


Outdoor LED Strip Lights: Waterproof, Durable, and Energy Efficient

If you’re interested in installing outdoor LED strip lights, be sure to hire a professional. While you can purchase and install this type of lighting system yourself, it’s not recommended. Even the experienced DIY enthusiast will fall short of the ideal installation and product quality varies widely. Some homeowners have installed lights   lacking in water resistance or lights that cracked in cold -40-degree weather. When you opt for professional installation, you can be sure that the product will withstand Canadian weather. Better companies will warranty their product for five years, but high-quality LED strip lights will last in excess of twenty years (based on usage of six to eight hours per day.)


Better outdoor LED strip light systems are nearly invisible when they’re not lit. Only when they’re turned on will they be noticeable to passers-by. But when they are illuminated, they’re designed to dazzle!


How They Work

The lights are just half of the package when you have outdoor LED strip lights installed. The other half is the ability to control them. You can operate the system with a remote, but you can also operate the lights by downloading an app onto your smartphone. Better systems will have nearly endless possibilities regarding colour and patterning. You can also adjust the intensity of the light, and the speed of the pattern. (Blinking, chasing, flashing, rotating colours.)


You may choose simple elegance – you can keep the lights stationary and lit in a single colour, or even in white. The dramatic silhouette created will set your home apart, and create a glow that marks your home as extraordinary.


Or, you may choose to reflect the life within by changing the lights to suit the occasion. Are the Leafs winning? Flash blue and white every time they get a goal. Do you want to show your sweetie that Valentine’s Day is important to you? Make the lights flash red and pink. Honour your alma mater by blinking with school colours, or celebrate St. Paddy’s Day with a Kelly-green glow.


And of course, if you celebrate Christmas, permanent LED lights are a huge advantage: no more climbing dangerous extension ladders,


LED Advantages

In addition to being cost-effective, going LED has advantages for the planet:


·       Environmentally-Friendly. LED lights are free of toxic chemicals, and they are 100% recyclable. Trading conventional bulbs in for LEDs can help you to reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third.

·       Energy Efficient. LEDs have an estimated energy efficiency of 80%-90% when compared to conventional light bulbs. 

·        Low-Voltage Power Supply.A low-voltage power supply is enough to produce brilliant LED illumination. This makes it easy to use LED lighting in remote or rural areas.

·        Long Life. One of the major advantages of LEDs is that they last for much longer than incandescent bulbs. LEDs don’t burn out like ordinary bulbs, meaning that they have a much lower replacement rate.
