Since our inception, Lite Outdoor has provided complete outdoor lighting design and installation solutions. Our process begins with a thorough understanding of your wishes, needs, and goals. We then analyze the situation and develop a game plan which often includes some level of on-site demonstration. Once a design concept is agreed upon, we work closely with you to select the right fixtures for your situation and budget.
Lite Outdoor is an AMP-certified lighting professional, so you can be certain that you will not only be getting the best quality fixtures and products available but they will be installed by technicians who are trained to install lighting systems in the most professional and efficient manner possible.
Outdoor lighting covers so many areas. Here is a summary of some of the areas we focus on.
Lighting your home, building, or other architectural elements are some of the most fundamental aspects of what we do. Whether is daytime, or after dark, good landscape design has a goal and that is to make the space inviting and to draw your guests toward a specific focal point. Most often this is the front door. When done properly, a good architectural lighting project will produce that amazing curb appeal and guide visitors safely to their destination.
Architectural points of interest:
The ever-changing landscape creates a perfect pallet for painting amazing lighting scenes that evolve throughout the season. Trees, shrubs, perennials, and annuals will respond differently as they grow and change during the year. Deciduous trees and shrubs will catch light during the spring, summer, and fall months as the large leaves are able to grab the light and hold on to reflect amazing textures and colors. As these plants drop their foliage, an amazing transformation happens and they not only catch highlights on their branches but also can cast artistic shadows on walls or other structures. Often times the lighting design will plan for these changes, but also may require minor adjustments as plants grow and change.
Landscape points of interest:
Safety and security are key elements to consider for landscape lighting design. Proper lighting of driveways, paths, and walks will guide homeowners or guests safely to a destination by illuminating potentially dangerous situations such as tripping hazards, steps, and railings. In addition, a well lit area will reduce the possibility of dark places where intruders may lurk or hide. A great lighting project provides the security and safety, while maintaining a warm and inviting illumination.
Gone are the days of changing out bulbs that are sensitive to the touch, or get accidentally switched during routine maintenance. What once was a complicated system that was easily damaged is now a homeowner's dream. Lite Outdoor installs quality and durable AMP One Control Pro LED lighting systems complete with handheld remote control for precision design control.
Every job is different and custom-designed to fit your needs but they all have many of the same basic parts.
The transformer is the box that converts 120v electricity into 12v or 15v (low voltage). Your project will be designed to efficiently run your system with the proper size and amount of transformers. Transformers come in a variety of sizes with numerous features such as timers and photocells that can be programmed to turn on and off at various times.
Your low voltage cable is installed at a depth that is shallow enough for easy maintenance or adjustment in your lawn or garden as needed. Each connection is made with specially designed waterproof connectors that are filled with silicone to prevent moisture and corrosion.
Lite Outdoor will design a system that is right for you and that may include options for numerous fixtures such as spot lights, floodlights, path & area lights, hardscape fixtures, in in-grade lights, underwater lighting, downlights, or specialty lights. The majority of our systems include the use of the AMP One Control Pro series of LED lights. These integrated lights are adjustable to precision design control using the supplied hand held remote control.
