NASA estimates that the Sun takes more than four and a half billion years to illuminate the Milky Way, being the brightest star in the sky. In the prehistoric era, it was conceived as a unique luminescent element of the inhabitants of the Earth. Its natural light governed the cycles, the time, until the first humans discovered the fire.
Over the years, appeared new light sources, such as candles, oil lamps or classic chandeliers, then came coal gas, kerosene or petroleum distillation.
Since then, lighting has evolved to even be conceived as an element of aesthetics. Today, intelligent lighting has come to be: The light of the present and the future.
It is hard to believe that there are those who still do not know the multiple and varied advantages of lighting with LED lights. On the one hand, LED are a ecological way to illuminate for various reasons: reducing energy consumption by up to 80%, which means a saving of resources that is not negligible. Its useful life is much longer than traditional halogen lights, LED can last about 50,000 hours, so we will need to change less frequently.
In addition, are less polluting because LED lights do not contain mercury like fluorescent lamps, and are very safe elements that considerably reduce the risk of domestic accidents compared with other lighting technologies. And all without forgetting another great advantage that is the quality of the light, clear and bright.
Although fluorescence and incandescent light persists, LED technology is conceived as present and future of the sector. half a century ago that the American scientist Nick Holonyak devised emitting diodes, whose main mission was to save energy. Then with the regulation towards sustainable horizons, Europe began requiring the development of LED technology for its "green" features.
LED lighting meets all the requirements for converting external areas of your home in a pleasant landscape and visually appealing. The versatility of LED lighting allows you to create effects such as variety of colors, its small size and various light options for its numerous designs. Ideal for walkways or passage areas and signs.
LED outdoor lights have the same advantages as indoor LED lights, with the difference that their manufacturing materials are prepared to withstand the conditions of being out in the open. So if our intention is to create a special environment for our outdoor spaces of our home, LED lighting offers us all the possibilities and possible combinations that we can imagine.
The first thing is to think calmly and study beforehand some examples that can help us to know what kind of lighting we want in our garden or terrace. Some advice is to keep steps and junctions well lit, and balance the rest of external areas.
Led solar panels
Many LED systems for outdoor lighting have their own solar panels to supply with energy its bulbs. It is an ideal solution because it loads up during the day and automatically turn on when the light begins to fail. We also save on installation wiring which sometimes can be complex and cumbersome. Obviously, it doesn´t consume any electricity and usually last almost all night. This is another advantage to consider because an illuminated garden or terrace usually dissuades thieves and avoids unpleasant surprises. And another thing, a solar powered system of lighting by solar panels will be active even if we are not at home.
An illuminated future
Automat lighting will go in crescendo, providing better lighting solutions. This is an industry that moves much economy, because it is necessary for all the daily aspects of life.
It is very likely that in a few years we will live an even greater leap in innovation. An environment in which infinite electronic possibilities will be deployed through lighting, and which will allow controlling the flow of purchases with systems such as "heatmaping" (heat maps), regulating the amount of light in an environment through the voice, besides other things that can now be unimaginable. Let there be light!!
