LED Outdoor Lighting
What are the advantages of LED outdoor lighting?
LED technology is already widely used indoors today. Why not also in the outdoors? In these outdoor places, you can benefit from several advantages that LED outdoor lighting brings:
- Due to the high efficiency of LED, you save up to 90% in electricity and thus energy costs.
- LED outdoor lighting has an extremely long lifetime of up to 70,000 hours. That is much longer than conventional outdoor lighting.
- LED lighting is virtually maintenance-free.
- You have often earned back the purchase price of LED lighting within a year.
- LED lamps do not contain any substances that are harmful to the environment.
- LED lighting is durable and efficient.
- As a company, you can in some cases benefit from government subsidies when you switch to LED outdoor lighting.
What should I pay attention to when buying LED outdoor lighting?
There are a number of things to consider in advance. First of all, make sure you check what type of outdoor lighting you already have. Is it a complete fixture that needs to be replaced? Or can only the light source be replaced in the existing fitting? Once you know this, you can start looking for the right LED replacement. This could be a LED waterproof fixture or a waterproof LED wall lamp, but also a separate E27 LED lamp or a GU10 LED spotlight. It is also important to find out what wattage and color temperature your current lighting has. This way, you can focus your search for the most suitable LED lamps and/or fixtures.
Which LED outdoor lighting is suitable for my garden?
There are many ways to put your garden in the right LED light. For example, you can use LED solar lighting to frame a pond, as well as the path to the gazebo. If, on the other hand, you want to illuminate individual plants, shrubs, trees or sculptures, we recommend the use of waterproof LED recessed spotlights that can be used as outdoor ground spots. Depending on the size of the object, LED wide-angle floodlights may also be suitable.
Which LED outdoor lighting is suitable for my terrace or balcony?
The light on the terrace or balcony should not only illuminate the room but also contribute to a cozy atmosphere. Therefore, attention should be paid not only to the right shape of the fixture but also to the right color temperature, such as warm white (3000 Kelvin). LED ceiling lights are ideal for outdoor areas such as balconies and terraces. If desired, you can also use LED solar lights, which are particularly energy-efficient.
Which LED outdoor lighting is suitable for a flat?
Light sources at the entrance of the flat fulfill several functions: they provide security and deter burglars. The right luminaire must serve both purposes. An LED wall light is a suitable solution for this. It can be easily installed next to a front door. If you have an awning, you can also use an LED ceiling light. To ensure that not only the entrance is lit, but also the path leading to it, we recommend surrounding it with bulb lighting. If you have a garage or carport, an LED wide beam is the right choice. With a mix of different LED Floodlights, which you can find in our assortment, you can optimally light the entrance to your flat. Want to know more?

Which color temperature is suitable for LED outdoor lighting?
Thanks to modern LED technology, you can buy outdoor lighting in all possible color temperatures. Below, we show you the differences between the individual light colors and where they can best be used.
- 2300 to 2700 Kelvin - extra warm white: LED outdoor luminaires with an extra warm white color temperature to create a particularly cozy and relaxing atmosphere. We, therefore, recommend products with 2,300 to 2,700 K for lounge or wellness areas, for example.
- 3000 Kelvin - warm white: Warm white light also creates an inviting atmosphere. However, this light colour is more suitable for everyday use and is particularly popular for the terrace or balcony.
- 4000 to 5700 Kelvin - cool white: cool white color temperature is mainly found in LED outdoor lighting that is used to illuminate paths or entrances. The neutral light color helps you find your way and shows where you need to go.
- 6500 Kelvin - daylight white A color temperature of 6500 Kelvin is very close to natural daylight. Therefore, this light color is often used for illumination to protect against burglary. The bright light deters uninvited guests, whether they are people or animals.
What IP protection class does my LED outdoor lighting need?
LED outdoor lights have to be able to do one thing above all else: be weather-resistant. Rain, snow, hail or storms should not damage the fixture. We recommend using LED outdoor lights with at least an IP44 value (splash proof) if they are installed under a roof or carport. On the other hand, you can choose waterproof LED outdoor lights with an IP65 value or higher. Here, the difference lies in the second digit, which indicates the degree of protection against water. Your choice may depend on the average weather conditions and external circumstances, such as the place where the lamp is to be installed. You can read all about the IP value in our blog.
