When selecting LED lighting, remember that color temperature and lumens are different things. Only lumens affect the brightness of a light; Kelvin color temperature refers to light quality. Get a quick overview of lighting terms and the difference between lumens and color temperature in the Light Quality blog post.

While spotlights and garden up lights are helpful from an artistic standpoint, like the Sunco Solar Path Lights that add 6-8 hours of sun powered lighting at night, an all night light outside provides for safe walkways at work or home.

Basement & Garage Safety Lighting

Work in basements, garages, and storage facilities often requires carrying items into the space, which means your hands are not free to turn on the lights. Adding a Dusk-to-Dawn LED light bulb, like the PAR38 LED Bulb Dusk to Dawn Motion Activated light, means that the lights will automatically recognize movement and automatically turn on the light. Sunco motion activated lights use a PIR sensor, which stands for passive infrared. Typically, a PIR sensor detects motion of people and pets due to their heat signature.

The PAR38 LED bulb light includes a PIR sensor to detect motion within 6ft distance. The light remains on for 25 seconds after movement has stopped to allow you time to safely enter or leave a space while carrying items, without having to set down what you are carrying to turn on a light.


Energy Conservation & Time-Saving High Tech Lights

Not only is it convenient to automatically turn lights on/off with the sun setting and rising, Sunco LED light bulbs do not need a high tech app or timer to remote control your light and turn it on at night. The high tech and built-in photocell sensor does all the work for you. Talk about saving time!
