One of the more unique and visually-pleasing lighting techniques in decorative garden lighting is the use of fiber optics. Fiber optics is the science of transmitting light via optical fibers. Optical fibers are extruded cylinders of plastic or glass used to transmit light. All that is required to illuminate the optic fibers is a single light bulb; making fiber optic lighting an affordable garden lighting choice. Another great advantage of fiber optic lighting is that it uses no electrical current; therefore it is safe to place in and around water without danger of electrocution. Therefore, fiber optic lighting can be used to illuminate a garden pond, tree trunks and branches, shrubs, plant containers and even a patio deck.
Another fun idea to add to your outdoor oasis is solar-powered fiber optic gazing balls. These unique ornaments add loveliness to your garden at night and even in the day. The solar collector gathers energy during the day to power the fiber optics in the gazing ball at night. At dusk, the fiber optics illuminates the gazing ball and adds instant ambiance to any garden. These typically will remain running for 4-6 hours a night.
In the garden, lights can really make the space come alive. Having lights in the trees and lights near to a table will ensure you can eat outside all year round (subject to the temperature of course!) Another aspect of outside lighting is for security purposes. Having a light that comes on when there is motion nearby can be a very effective deterrent for anyone wishing to break into your home. Being lit up, the house can be clearly visible from all around and this makes it much less likely to be targeted by burglars. Interior lighting can also work as a good security measure. Leaving a few lights on around the home that are clearly visible from outside makes the house appear to be occupied so think about this when planning your home lighting too.
Will there be other media such as video projection? If you are using special event lighting such as lasers and LED screens then it is imperative that the rest of your lighting does not overwhelm the main event. You may wish to choose a more simple setup to accommodate for special effects.
Why should I select luminarias LED (LED luminaires) over the inexpensive conventional lamps? Consider not only the basic price of the lamp but also true cost of light, which comprise of the energy cost, replacement charges and the maintenance expenses. LED lights utilize less energy. When installed at applications with long work hours, the saved cost of electricity can be utilized in any other requirement. Luces LED (LED lights) are quite durable, from 30000 to 50000 hours. Imagine that you don’t have to change the light for the next two decades, specifically those hard to reach light fittings.
