Permanent LED Lighting Systems a Great Alternative to Outdoor Rope Lighting


Alternatives to Outdoor Rope Lighting


People are looking for alternatives to traditional outdoor rope lighting. Rope lighting is relatively inexpensive and can be effective for some uses, but it has many disadvantages. First, rope lighting can be difficult to install. If you are installing lights along the roofline of your house, you will need to work at a great height, which can be dangerous. If you’re hoping to use rope lighting on a ridgeline, gable, or eave, it may be hard to get the effect you want.: It can be near-impossible to get rope lighting to create a straight line, as it tends to bend and/or twist between anchoring pins. Installing can be frustrating in other aspects, too: rope lights come in specific lengths, and you may be cutting and splicing to get a section that’s the right size for your purpose. You will also need to splice power cords and end caps onto the ropes, and you need an outlet that your power cord can reach. Imagine all this struggle at the top of a ladder!


In addition, there’s not much flexibility in rope lighting; unlike permanent outdoor lighting, it can’t usually be programmed or changed up depending on the occasion. Experts agree that rope lighting may be a good choice for a temporary event such as a backyard party, but if you want a beautiful, long-term lighting solution, it’s best to opt for professional installation and a high-quality permanent LED outdoor lighting system.

Installing permanent lights provides tremendous advantages. When you opt for permanent LED lights on your home or in your outdoor space, trained and experienced technicians will install them, efficiently and safely.

Endless Possibilities


And here’s a huge advantage of permanent lighting – you can control it and change it to create exactly what you want. Better lighting companies offer innovations such as remote control, or control through a smartphone app. This allows you to change colours, intensity, and patterning.
