About Low Voltage Outdoor 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.
Among our low voltage landscape lighting fixtures, which are generally preferred for residential use, the VOLT® RGBW Max All-Star™ Integrated LED Spotlight delivers 1300 lumens of light output - ideal for high-level illumination of wide areas. Meanwhile, the most powerful of our line voltage spotlights is the VOLT® 120V 18W Integrated LED Brass Spotlight, which has a light output of 1550 lumens. It can be used to illuminate large landscape and/or architectural features in commercial and municipal applications, as well as estate-size homes.
