Top 3 LED Floodlights
Floodlights are a good choice for homeowners because they provide bright outdoor lighting without forcing the user to spend extra money on light bulbs and expensive fixtures. Floodlights have two important functions: they can be used to provide outdoor lighting for the porch, garden, swimming pool etc., and they can also be used for security purposes. Many flood lights have motion detectors which can be used to deter intruders whilst simultaneously alerting the homeowner to their presence.
LED floodlights are a very good option because they are much more energy efficient than their counterparts. LED flood lights are up to 90% more energy efficient when compared to halogen floodlights, plus LED floodlights are reliable in cold as well as warm temperatures. LED lights also provide a longer lifespan than most of the other floodlights in the market so although they may seem a bit costly initially they actually have relatively low maintenance costs. Floodlights tend to be a bit confusing and it can be hard to know what features you are looking for and what you should be basing your decision on, so if you are feeling a bit lost read on for our review of the top 3 LED floodlights available online.
OSRAM Review – Our Number 1
* The OSRAM Noxlite (learn more here!) is very bright and measures at 3000 lumen. LED lights use lumen rather than watts as their measurement and lumen refers to how much light you get out of the light. 3000 lumen translates into around 200 traditional watts and 50 fluorescent watts.
* This LED light can pivot to 140 degrees and can also tilt if needs be.
* The OSRAM Noxlite allows you to control how sensitive the motion sensor is. You have the option of setting the sensor from 4 to 14 metres depending on how close you want a person/animal to be before the light turns on. You can also activate and deactivate this feature at will.
