Saving electricity is an increasingly important issue, due to rising electricity prices, many homeowners are being forced to review their electricity consumption and make reductions where possible. As part of this review your homes lighting should be rethought many homes use halogen spotlights for security lighting, although being very bright they can be power hungry, consuming between 100 to 500 watts, depending on the brightness.
Although these lamps usually hanging at your home are controlled with a motion detector, so that they only light up when they are really needed. But here is the second problem with halogen spotlights: by the constant on and off the lamp can become stressed, so you need to replace it more often - this is of course also a cost factor.
A reasonable alternative is LED lamp with a motion detector, these not only consume less power, they also are long lasting, LED lighting can save up to 80% of power consumption.
The advantages of LED spotlights
Power consumption and the lifetime maintenance costs of LED lighting are the greatest advantage, of course. Another advantage: LED spotlights generate hardly any heat, they can be applied flexibly so, for example, under leaves in plantings. The installation works exactly as with halogen lamps, with two screws and a power connection, you have everything you need. If you previously had a halogen spotlight, then you can replace it easily with a LED spotlight.Practical features and important properties of an LED emitter
Some handy features of LED security lights are for example, a twilight sensor that automatically activates the motion detector, when it gets dark. The motion sensor and the radiator itself should be good to adjust and attach flexible. So you can adjust the illuminated area and the detection range of the sensor optimally. Other important settings are light duration, sensor sensitivity and brightness.
LED lamps are a great way to save power and also provide a very long service life. If you find a model with sufficient luminosity, then these can be a great choice for your property
