03/09/17 RGB Lights: Indoor vs Outdoor Lighting

RGB Lights: Indoor vs Outdoor Lighting

RGB indoor and outdoor lighting solutions vary greatly. Indoor fixtures are sensitive to corrosion and offers very little protection against exposure to wet elements. Outdoor lights that have been approved by various product safety organizations, such as Underwriters Laboratories (UL), are great options for exterior locations that experience harsh weather. Below highlights the difference between RGB outdoor and indoor lighting.


How to Choose RGB Outdoor Lighting

The first step in choosing the correct RGB outdoor light is matching the fixture’s ratings with the applicable environment. Outdoor units are usually designed to withstand extreme weather, damp settings, corrosive agents or a combination of harmful elements that can shorten the lifespan of the light. To ensure that the fixture can be installed in the outdoor location, one must check for various approval ratings on the label or manual. For example, UL listed fixtures for damp locations (covered patios and porches) are suitable for “an exterior or interior location that is normally or periodically subject to condensation of moisture in, on or adjacent to the electrical components of a lighting fixture.”

On the other hand, UL listed units for wet locations refer to a location where water or liquids may drip, splash or flow on the electrical parts of a fixture. Exterior walls, garden landscapes, open-air decks and roofs are examples of wet locations in outdoor settings. Damp and wet UL ratings are the most common types of protection that individuals look for when selecting RGB outdoor lights. When it comes to the type of lighting technology, LEDs perform exceptionally well in outdoor locations (due to their solid state design), compared to traditional options, such as incandescent and fluorescent lamps.


RGB Indoor Lighting Considerations

RGB indoor lights do not typically carry heavy approval ratings. Most are designed with aesthetics as the main priority in order to match other tasteful components inside the facility. Because of this, the fixtures are not usually sealed tight, and protection against corrosion is minimal. However, this does not mean that one cannot find RGB indoor lights with UL ratings.

Without taking aesthetics into consideration, exterior RGB lights can be used indoors. However, the opposite is not recommended; and using indoor fixtures outdoors can be dangerous. Outdoor RGB lights presents several advantages over indoor models, when used inside a building. Since such fixtures are sturdier, their lifespans can be extended indoors, where the environment is predictable and easily controlled. There are also plenty of reasons why one would want to use outdoor units indoors. RGB lights with waterproof ratings can be installed inside a bathroom with high humidity, or near a kitchen sink for extra lighting.
