LIGHTING can enhance any landscape by adding ambience after dark, highlighting unique features and extending the amount of time people spend in outdoor spaces.

But with so many outdoor lighting options available, selecting the best technique can be a tricky decision.

According to experts, some of the biggest trends of 2018 is smart app automation.


These allow people to log into their accounts on a mobile phone to program the lights, rather than having to depend on a timer or control system inside the transformer.

Using smart technology, property owners can set a weekly lighting schedule, whether it’s consistent throughout the week or different each day, instead of using default dusk-to-dawn timers.

They even allow users to set different start times for specific areas of the property, offering more personalised lighting control than ever before.
