Pedestal lights are a popular type of outdoor lighting, often installed along paths, walkways and patios. They come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials and provide adequate lighting for outdoor areas. Pedestal lights can be controlled manually or with a timer or motion detector, and are often energy efficient as they can be powered by LED technology. Choosing the right base lights can help create a safe and appealing outdoor environment.

The recommended wattage for outdoor lighting depends on the size and intended use of the area. For small areas such as balconies and patios, 5-10 watts is sufficient, while larger areas such as gardens or parking lots may require 20-50 watts. It is important to note that a higher wattage does not automatically mean better lighting, as other factors such as light color and placement of the fixtures also play a role.

There are various shapes of base lights, including round, square or rectangular designs, as well as models with a slim, columnar design or a spherical shape. In addition, there are also base lights in different sizes and heights, as well as made of different materials such as stainless steel, aluminum or plastic.

What types of pedestal lights are there?

There are different types of pedestal lights that are suitable for outdoor use. A common variant is lantern base lights, which combine a traditional look with modern LED technology. Modern pedestal lights often have a simpler design and a clearer design language. Other variants include, for example, up-down luminaires that shine both upwards and downwards, as well as base luminaires with integrated motion sensors or twilight sensors. Colored base luminaires or those with different light colors are also available.

What is a twilight sensor?

A twilight sensor is a sensor that measures the brightness in the environment and based on that, automatically turns the lights on or off. The sensor detects when it is getting dark and activates the lighting to ensure sufficient brightness. As soon as it gets light again, the sensor turns the lighting off to save energy. Twilight sensors are commonly used in outdoor lighting fixtures such as street lights, path lights, garden lights and outdoor wall lights to provide efficient and automatic lighting.

What do I need to consider when buying a pedestal light?

There are a few factors that should be considered when buying outdoor pedestal lights. First of all, it is important to consider the intended use and decide whether the pedestal lights will be used as orientation lights or as the main lighting. In addition, it is advisable to pay attention to the light color, brightness and energy efficiency of the skirting lights. The size and design should also be chosen to match the outdoor area. In addition, it may be wise to look for base lights with an integrated twilight sensor to enable automatic on/off and save energy.

LED lamps for outdoor use

LED lamps are a popular and efficient outdoor lighting solution. They offer numerous advantages over traditional incandescent lamps, including greater energy efficiency, longer life, and better brightness. In addition, there are a variety of outdoor LED lamps available in different shapes, sizes, and styles to meet different needs and tastes.

When buying outdoor LED lamps, one should pay attention to the IP rating to ensure that the lamps are protected against weather conditions such as rain, moisture and dust. You should also pay attention to the brightness of the lamp to ensure that it will adequately illuminate the desired area. The choice of color temperature can also have an impact on the atmosphere and mood that the lighting creates. Finally, you should also pay attention to the lifespan and warranty terms of the LED lamps to ensure that you get a high-quality and long-lasting lighting solution.


IP44 is a protection rating often used in connection with outdoor electrical equipment and lighting. The "IP" stands for "International Protection" and indicates the degree of protection of the device. The first digit (4) represents protection against solid foreign objects such as dust, while the second digit (4) indicates protection against water. Thus, a device with IP44 protection is protected against splashing water and small amounts of water and is therefore well suited for outdoor use. However, it is important to note that IP44 does not provide sufficient protection to use the device in direct contact with water or in heavy rain.


IP65 is a standard that applies to outdoor electrical equipment and lighting. IP65 means that the device is dustproof and protected against water jets from any angle. This rating is especially suitable for outdoor lighting applications where the fixture is exposed to rain and high winds. IP65 luminaires are available in a variety of styles and can be used in a variety of applications, including street, pathway, patio and garden lighting. When you choose IP65-rated fixtures, you can be sure that they are rugged and durable enough to withstand the rigors of outdoor use.


IP67 refers to the degree of protection an electrical device has against the ingress of dust and water. The "IP" stands for "International Protection" and the numbers indicate how well the device is protected from the ingress of foreign objects and moisture.

An IP67 rated device is completely dustproof and can be submerged in water for short periods of time without being damaged. Therefore, IP67-rated devices are ideal for use in high humidity environments or in heavy rain. For example, IP67-rated LED lights can be installed outdoors to provide durable and reliable lighting.
