Today’s outdoor lighting systems run off of LED bulbs. With the advancements in technology, the current draw is very low. Most systems do not draw more than 100watts. This makes dust to dawn operation expense negligible.
Most of our lighting systems run on what is called a 12 volt AC transformer. The 120 Volts coming from the breaker panel is stepped down to 12 volts. 12 volts of current isn’t typically enough to do any harm if a pet or child were to come into contact with a faulty circuit.
Most installations can be completed in one to two days depending on the size of the install.
The life expectancy of one of our signature brilliance series systems are about 10 years or longer. It is normal for our high output LED brilliance series bulbs to need replacement every 30 to 36 months due to failure or lumen degradation. Ask about our industry leading Day One Plans.
Brilliance series systems come standard with the Day One Every Day
Program for one year. The program can be extended up to 5 years at the time of purchase. Transformers and fixtures carry a lifetime warranty against defects.
We do not offer colored bulbs in traditional up light systems. However, “CCT” color changing technology is available in our downlighting applications.
Our most popular options is control by a photo cell. Photo cells are best for the client that wants to set it and forget it. The lights will automatically come on as light levels drop in the evening and shutoff as daylight increases in the morning. Timers are available for those that prefer to turn their lighting system off at some point during the night.
The bulbs can be replaced by a 3rd party product, however is not recommend without consulting a technician. Every bulb draw different wattages as well as come in a variety of color temperatures. Using alternative bulbs can throw the lighting system off balance which can cause other bulbs or fixtures to fail prematurely from voltage fluctuations.
Third party negligence, acts of God including but not limited to lighting, wind, hail, substantial water, animals or pests.
Connections quality which contribute to frequent fixture failure, failure to use optics and lensing which translates to inferior balance, imperfect fixture placement which translate to unnecessary shadowing and lastly what is seen the most; inconsistent system voltage which degrades fixtures prematurely.
