What are outdoor wall lights?

These lighting compositions are mainly outdoor lighting that is mounted on a wall. This may be, for example, a garage, the shed or the facade of your house. The models come in plain colors such as black, white, silver or anthracite, are made of metal such as stainless steel or aluminum, and are available in rectangular or spherical shapes, for example. The lampshade is made of resistant materials such as polycarbonate to withstand all weather conditions. Inside the models, a powerful and environmentally friendly LED is installed as a light source, which provides a reliable, bright light. A wall lamp of this type is often dimmable and equipped with a motion detector, which activates the lamp only when motion is detected in the immediate vicinity. Twilight sensors also represent a common additional function of these lights. Thanks to this extra, the outdoor wall lamp detects approaching darkness and lights up as soon as visibility becomes limited.

What is an outdoor wall light used for?

Since such a luminaire is a functional model, it is used rather less for decorative purposes. Its task is to illuminate exterior areas of your property in the dark, in order to increase safety. This applies primarily to the driveway, yard and entrance area, but also to the garden, terrace or garage. The LED also gives you a pleasant brightness when you are looking for your keys at the front door or getting the mail from the mailbox. Meanwhile, the lighting also acts as an effective deterrent against burglars. The suddenly activating lamp suggests that the unwanted visitor is under surveillance and is not alone, which often sends them fleeing.

Where can a wall light be mounted? 

There are many possible applications for outdoor wall lights. After all, the entrance area of a property has a variety of potential tripping hazards and dark corners that should be illuminated for greater safety. You have the following options regarding the installation of these lamps:

  • In the yard, so that the spotlights are mounted on the exterior wall and guide you flawlessly to your front door.
  • In the entryway, so that treacherous areas like the keyhole or mailbox can be found at any time of day.
  • At the driveway, to clearly mark it for guests in the dark.
  • In the garden, to appropriately highlight individual areas such as a pond, a flower bed or sculptures.
  • On the terrace, to accompany you and your guests atmospherically through a cozy summer evening.

Which types of protection are suitable?

The installation of such a light construction takes place outdoors. Therefore, unlike indoor luminaires, it is indispensable to pay attention to the correct protection class of your luminaire, so that the highest possible service life of the model can be guaranteed. The various degrees of protection consist of the abbreviation IP and two subsequent code numbers. The first number represents immunity to foreign bodies and dust, while the second digit indicates immunity to water. Different degrees of protection are suitable for models that are permanently exposed to various weather conditions.

With IP44, the luminaire is immune to small foreign bodies as well as splashing water from all sides. If the wall lamp is mounted near a green area, it is possible that jet water from the water hose will hit the lamp. In this case, the code number IP45 is suitable. If the model comes into contact with gravel or sand, you should opt for the IP65 or IP66 ratings, which protect the outdoor lamp and LED from dust penetration.
