Outdoor Patio

Products Used/Details    •   Outdoor Stairway   •   Project Photos


        The bright white light produced by the LEDs here illuminates this outdoor patio and even extends out into the yard!  For this patio lighting project, we used 40 feet of our cool white flex strip (about 2 1/2 of our 16' rolls).  The self adhesive SMD backing was used to stick the strips on the wall just below the roof.  They produce a nice bright light similar to that of a fluorescent; however it comes on instantly in cold weather!

Another advantage for this application is the absence of shadows (there are now shadows since the light is coming from a long strip.  In addition, this LED strip easily lights the patio up to about 30 feet out.

Products Used/Details

Products Used Details and Other Ideas
12V Cool White Flexible LED Strip You could also use the warm white LED or RGB LED strips.  However, for this project the goal was simply to light the patio, so we chose the brightest strip (our cool white LED strip).  All of the rolls are connected end to end and the power feed wires are spliced inbetween the middle rolls.  
18-4 Wire Since this is a single color LED strip, it only needed 2 wires.  However, since there are 4x wires in the control cable and the transformer was 30 feet away from the middle of the strips (where the power is fed to), we decided to take advantage of the extra wires to help reduce voltage drop.  To do this we connected both the red and white together and the black and green together.  
8A 96W Power Supply (12V) For the long runs we used this larger power supply.  It was connected to a regular wall switch so it only has off and on but you could add a PWM dimmer between the transformer and the LED strips (you could use a remote keychain or wall mount dimmer).

Outdoor Stairway

3 5W EU-27 cool white LED replacement bulbs light up this outdoor stairway.

 

 

      For this entrance stairway, there are 3x of our 5w EU-27 Cool White LED replacement bulbs (which simply screw into a normal 60W fixture).  The Cool White LED bulbs are great for outdoors, basements, attics, and porches- actually anywhere you would normally use fluorescent lighting.  Our Warm White LED bulbs are great for indoor uses, as they have a nice warm color which is similar to a regular incandescent bulb.   They are fairly directional, however they still emit an even light over the whole area.  In addition, these LED bulbs are dimmable with standard household dimmers.

       These 5W LED bulbs are a great bulb for motion detectors and security lights.  They come on instantly, even in the cold weather, and they are bright enough that you can see the entire area.  They are not sealed for outdoor use, but they are well built and LEDs are quite durable even in harsh conditions.  We installed them outdoors, and they have been working fine ever since.  If you are worried about the weather, you could always put a little silicone around the lense for extra precaution (or special order one of our outdoor models).
