What is LED and how does it get integrated?
Let’s start at the beginning with a quick explanation of LED. LED is an acronym for light-emitting diode, a light source that emits light when it’s activated. LED’s have an impressive service life and energy-efficiency benefits. An integrated LED fixture is just what it says it is – the light source is an integrated part of the light fixture. So instead of buying a bulb and a fixture – and replacing the bulb when it burns out – you buy one integrated piece with the light source built in.
What's in it for me with integrated LED?
The fixture with the light source built in is a marriage made for success. The likelihood of an integrated LED light prematurely failing is minimal, and if it does, you’re covered by a Kichler Lighting warranty of up to 15 years.
To say this lighting has a pretty thick skin is an understatement. The lighting source is embedded into the fixture, giving it the ultimate protection against the elements. Moisture and electricity are not close friends, and integrated LED landscape lighting ensures they’ll never meet. Landscape lighting is exposed 24/7, and integrated LED is made to check the “will it last” worry off your list.
Energy Efficiency Beyond Compare
You will save time and spend less with Integrated LED lighting. These are lights built to last, without the need to change a bulb. LED lights use up to 70% less electricity. That’s always a good thing, and it can mean a lower bill. No matter how much property you have to illuminate, the use of electricity adds up.
Imagine if you could vary the brightness of your landscape lighting? Light output is measured in lumens, and Kichler® has lighting that lets you change the light output easily and safely, without a mechanical adjustment. It’s called VLO. Think of having three output levels in one fixture, adjustable with a simple tool like a magnetic key. You wouldn’t ever expose any vulnerable parts of the fixture to the elements: you’d just enjoy the ability to create a more customized lighting effect.
Kichler Lighting stands behind its products, and you’ll find a 15-year warranty on all Kichler integrated LED landscape lighting.
