Never underestimate the power of accent lighting. Accent lighting highlights unique architectural features that might otherwise be overlooked, and elevates the ambience within a space.

The newly launched Wifi Tape Kits from Dals Lighting further amplifies the importance of accent lighting, incorporating smart home technology for full control of the product through a mobile device or through an infrared remote control.

The Dals App is free to download and is available on any IOS or Android device. The app allows users to control up to 12 connected tapes on one mobile device. You can adjust colour output, set timers, and sync music with the light output for a unique lighting experience. In addition, the app has a colour matching feature that changes the colour of the light to match a desired colour output.

The kits are easy to install, and available in 1meter, 3meters, and 5meters lengths. Connectors are provided in the kit to easily connect the tapes, and designated cut lines are indicated if the tape needs to be cut to fit within a desired surface. Note: Once the tape is cut, you will not be able to reconnect it.

The Tape kits are also available at a competitive price in our showroom compared to other online retailers.

6 Easy Steps to Installing the Tape Light

Benefits of a Smart fan?

One of the major benefits of using a fan is the potential savings it can provide a household. Though the amount of savings also depends on other factors such as the adjustment of the thermostat and usage, you can still potentially save 30-40% using a fan year-round as they help recirculate warm and cool air within a space.
With Smart Fans, they not only provide convenience, but can also contribute to the potential savings by being able to control when the fan is turned on and off through a smartphone device, reducing unnecessary usage.

In addition, the smart fans are also designed with DC Motors. DC motors are described as being more energy efficient, as they use less power to move air around the room.
Aside from the potential savings a smart fan also give you a sense of full control over your lighting. Regardless of whether you are at home, at work, or on vacation, being able to control your lighting system through the convenience of your smartphone device can become advantageous when you have forgotten to turn off the fan before heading out the door, or when you want to ensure your home does not look vacant, deterring intruders from breaking in.

exterior lighting tips

The season of summer has arrived which means more opportunities to be outdoors. We have a few tips to help you get your outdoor space ready for the long weekends and amazing weather ahead.

Why is Outdoor Lighting important?

Primarily, outdoor lighting is important because it provides safety and security for homeowners and guests. Exterior lighting safeguard homeowners from potential accidents and discourages trespassers. However, exterior lighting also allows homeowners to enjoy their outdoor space beyond day time, and also helps enhance the aesthetic appeal of a home.

Things to Keep in mind

With exterior lighting be mindful of light pollution that can potentially harm the environment or create energy waste, such as using an excessive amount of lighting. When an excessive amount of light is used it prevents specific features-rather any feature-from standing out, also contributing to a higher electrical bill. To avoid unnecessary wastage, consider the activities that take place in your outdoor space, and certain features that you would want to highlight. Also keep in mind individual needs that might influence the importance of certain exterior lighting options over others.

What to light?

Depending on personal preference and the features you want to address, exterior lighting may vary in application from person to person. Here are a few areas you can consider:

THE ENTRY

One of the first aspect to consider is lighting the front entry since it is mandatory to have lighting at the entrance and exit of a residential home. In addition, they provide safety for the homeowners, as they can easily identify trespassers or unexpected guests.

THE STEPS & PATHWAY

kichler items new

Another aspect to consider are the steps and pathway. Lighting the surface of each step is especially helpful for those with older eyes. Providing step lighting and/or path lighting enhances visibility which reduces the occurrence of accidents.

THE ENTERTAINMENT AREA

The Patio or deck area is also a great space to consider lighting. This area is often a social area, which requires adequate lighting to ensure the comfort of guests and to ensure that the space is enjoyed beyond day time.

Like the interior of a home, layered lighting often creates a complete and robust look. Other exterior lighting techniques can be used to create a dramatic statement such as creating shadow effects or used to highlight unique features such as garden beds, statues, textured walls, pools, and courts.
