The lighting technology that enabled cool LEDs to replace hot high intensity discharge (HID) lamps for indoor grow lights for plants has enabled a revolution in another lighting category – outdoor solar lighting. This revolution has been made possible by the availability of bright white LEDs at reasonable prices. Solar lighting costs have declined to such an extent that solar lights are competitive in price with wired lights but offer far more convenience and significant operating cost savings.
You might think it surprising, considering their lack of brightness in other applications, that solar lights are now being engineered for security applications, using large arrays of bright white LEDs to provide illumination. Solar security lights that include motion detectors are available from many sources, while bright floodlights designed to remain on all night are still a specialty item used for yard security and commercial sign illumination where line power is not available.
