That’s easy: just check the ingress protection (IP) code. This is a two-digit number - the first one represents protection from solid objects on a scale of 0 – 6 while the second represents protection from liquids on a scale of 0 – 8. If this number is 4 or greater you can install the light outside.
Lots! We’ve got a fantastic choice of outdoor lights in antique, country house, rustic, designer, hotel, restaurant, industrial, maritime, Mediterranean, modern, office, Scandinavian, shop and vintage styles.
Many of our outdoor lights have motion and dusk sensors built-in (particularly our wall, flood, pillar, path and ceiling lights). They are incredibly convenient but also provide safety and peace of mind. Place one at the entrance to your garage, for example, and it will always illuminate the area and see you home safely. Of course, it is also useful as a warning if intruders are nearby. Another aspect is that motion detectors help to reduce costs as your outdoor lights only come on when they are needed.
We get asked this a lot and the answer is LED wherever possible. They last for ages, use very little power and light up immediately, unlike energy-saving spirals which take a couple of seconds to warm up.
