01/27/17 Using RGB Bulbs in Landscape Lighting

12 Watt RGB LED A19 Style Remote Control Light - Dimmable - Color Changing Bulb - Standard E26 Base

Using RGB Bulbs in Landscape Lighting

New trends in outdoor and landscape lighting includes the addition of color, animation and elaborate effects. All of these elements can be achieved through RGB bulbs and fixtures.

Types of RGB Lights

RGB lights are fixtures with red, blue and green colors. The colors can be combined to produce roughly 16 million different combinations. For example, green and red can be combined to produce yellow, and a mixture of red and blue results in violet. Despite the numerous hues available, some colors, such as brown and pink, cannot be, or are impossible to, achieve using RGB lights.

Below are the different types of RGB lights:

• RGB: Basic RGB light with red, blue and green colors.

• R/G/B/W: RGB light with a white light- typically used when pure white is needed in combination with other colors.

• RGB/3 in 1 LED: RGB LED chip mounted on a panel that is focused through a lens, designed to produce consistent colors across the light beam.

• RGBW/4 in 1 LED: RGB LED chip with a white light on a common panel, designed to produce a wider variety of color tones.

• RGBA: RGB LED chip with an amber LED.

RGB Bulbs for Landscape Lighting

RGB bulbs are suitable for landscape lighting systems, because the colors and flashy lighting configurations contribute to the general ambiance of the area. To ensure functionality, it is essential to use RGB landscape lights with water, dust or impact proof ratings, such as IP64, IP65 or IP67. The most common type of RGB light used for landscape lighting includes Parabolic Aluminized Reflector (PAR) RGB bulbs. Ideal for outdoor locations, the fixtures support a metallic surface under the bulb or diode that reflects stray light to achieve a focused beam. PAR lights can be used for accent lighting against statues or trees, as well as up lighting on walls.

“When buying PAR LEDs, it is recommended to match the beam spread with the lighting requirements of the location. For example, beam angles in the 40-degree range may illuminate more of the floor area, while beam angles in the 25-degree range often results in a more focused or concentrated effect,” said Larson Electronics.

Individuals who are looking for traditional RGB outdoor lights may want to consider A19 RGB bulbs. The pear-shaped lights are commonly found in architectural and landscape lighting systems. For pathway lighting, in-ground RGB LED lights are typically used for a low profile, minimal configuration. The small fixtures resemble a small cylindrical puck that can be installed along walkways, decks, patios and steps. Alternatively, waterproof RGB strip lights may also be used for guidance around outdoor pathways. The advantages of using this type of landscape light includes even and consistent illumination, dramatic lighting effects due to multiple bulbs or diodes on the strip, and compact installation.

RGB Controllers

Users have the option to change the characteristics of the lights instantly using a controller, which can be a third-party mobile app, software or a stock remote provided by the manufacturer. Controlling devices can be either wired into the system, or configured to function wirelessly via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi. A developing practice in the RGB lighting industry is the use of memory functions to streamline controls. The feature works by providing operators with the ability to save specific profiles of colors or animations. The profiles can be played autonomously with the push of a button without meticulous configuration during usage.
