About Low Voltage Spotlights
If landscape lighting is painting with light, then spotlights are the brushes. Spotlights are used for emphasis in outdoor lighting – to call attention to specific architectural or landscape features. Unlike floodlights that shed light across a wide area, spotlights have narrower beams so they can focus on one thing at a time.
When considering how to select spotlights, start by thinking about your application. VOLT® has a wide selection of quality spotlights for uplighting your home, trees, gazebos or statuary - as well as downlights for illuminating patios and decks, and underwater lights for use in water features like ponds and fountains.
A home burglary occurs every 13 seconds in the United States. Residential burglaries account for nearly 70 percent of all burglary offenses, and yet police solve less than 15 percent of the cases that get reported. It is critical to have outdoor lighting for home security, as it deters burglars, makes nighttime tasks around the home (finding keys, walking the dog, etc.) safer, and helps homeowners recognize and defend themselves from threats. For example, spotlights can be aimed up at the areas between second-story windows, and downlights can be used to cast down light on decks as well as first-floor doors and windows.
Our 120V Max All-Star integrated LED spotlight has a whopping light output of 1800 lumens. This line voltage fixture is typically used in commercial and municipal applications. Homeowners can also use it to illuminate larger landscape features (large trees, flag poles, large sculptures, etc.) or architectural features on an estate-size home. However, low voltage landscape lighting is more common for residential use.
