The holidays are a great time to add some extra fun to your yard, but why stop there? With some lights and the right hardware, you can give your outdoor space a little extra flair all year long. Here's how to choose the best lighting for your needs:
What lighting options are out there?
There are many different types of lighting available for your yard, but you should know what each type looks like and what it does before you make your decision.
- RGB lighting: These lights are a mix of red, green and blue LED bulbs. They can change color to create various effects. Some will even respond to music or other sounds in the area. This is one of the most popular options because it's easy to install and use, plus they're relatively inexpensive compared to some other choices on the market today!
- Candle lights: These resemble traditional candles but don't actually emit any heat or flicker like real flames would do if lit outside for extended periods of time (which could cause problems). Most come with timers installed so that they automatically turn on at certain times throughout each day; however, some also allow users to manually set them up whenever needed too depending upon where
Permanent RGB Lighting
Permanent RGB lighting is a low-voltage system that uses LED lights and a controller to produce color-changing effects. The lights are installed in the ground or on the side of a building. This can be used instead of regular light fixtures or to add visual interest to an existing fixture.
- There are two types of permanent RGB lighting: wired and wireless. Wired systems can be connected directly to your home's electrical system, while wireless systems require batteries for power.*
Holiday RGB Lighting
RGB lights are the latest technology in holiday lighting. They offer a lot of flexibility that you can't get with traditional incandescent or LED bulbs, including the ability to change their color and pattern to match your mood, weather conditions, or decorating scheme.
- Each RGB bulb contains three separate light-emitting diodes (LEDs) that produce red, green and blue colors respectively. This means that each bulb can be set independently from its neighbors so you can get any combination of colors you want by simply changing them on your controller
- Because RGBA bulbs contain multiple LEDs inside each one, they're usually brighter than other types of bulbs and don't require as much power. This not only saves you money on electricity bills but also helps keep them cool by spreading out heat more evenly among all the different parts
Many modern smart home systems, such as Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant, can be used to create lighting scenes and schedules. For example, if you have a schedule that turns your lights on at sunset and off at sunrise, you can set your system to turn on certain lights when the sun goes down. Your computer or phone could also control these lights by creating a scene with the set times for each type of light in the room.
You could even go one step further and use your phone’s camera to scan barcodes on items around your house (like bottles of wine). Then programmable lighting would automatically change colors based on what is stored where!
If you're looking to add a visual punch to your yard, consider a few of these options.
- Holiday lighting: This can be anything from simple strings of multicolored lights to elaborate displays that include moving figures, music and voice-activated features. When it comes down to it, how much time and effort you want to put into decorating will determine what kind of setup works best for you.
- Permanent RGB lighting: If you have trees or other structures in your yard that are visible from the road, permanent RGB lighting may be an option for adding some extra brightness without having to worry about taking them down after the holidays. It's also possible that this type of lighting could go unnoticed by neighbors who don't notice anything else around them changing colors! But if they do notice it then they'll probably wonder why yours changed color just because someone else did theirs too?
- Programmable lighting: If your neighbors have been putting up standard holiday decorations for years now then maybe this year would be good time try something different like programmable lights instead! They're easy enough take down once January rolls around again; plus they won't require any maintenance while being used (unlike those pesky gingerbread men).
So there you have it—a few of our favorite ways to add a visual punch to your yard. Now go forth, and make your home the talk of the neighborhood!
