The primary purpose of outdoor lights is to illuminate. For safety and visibility, outdoor lights are installed in dim areas to allow you to see what is happening around you. This is the most important criteria for outdoor lighting. Even though outside lighting is sometimes used to decorate, this may not be the case all the time.In managing electricity infrastructure, all needs must be wise and with quality products. Then MGM Transformers can help to supply varying secondary voltages to externally connected loads. You can find quality electrical and lighting products at the MGM Transformer Company.

Different types of Exterior Lights:
String Lights, fairy lights, globe lights, designer lights.
String lights are bulbs that are connected to low voltage power wires at regular intervals. Types are determined by the type of bulbs and shades (if they have any).
These tiny fairy lights come with small bulbs and are available in a range of colours, multicolor and a choice between static and multi-function operation. While they don’t have shades some of them are distinguished by the flutes placed around their bulb necks. They can be used outdoors and indoors, as they are small enough to be useful. You can use them to decorate trees, outline building features and construct free-standing features.
Globe lights are made the same as fairy lights, but they have larger bulbs. These lights are more attractive than traditional fairy lights and do not need to be shaded. Globe lights are generally intended for outdoor use, except when decorating large indoor areas. Many globe lights can be connected so it is possible to purchase just the right amount of them for your specific project.
There are many sizes of designer string lighting. They can be either a unique shape bulb or shades. String lighting can be designed to suit both adult and child needs. It can feature characters, lanterns or animals.
Static, multifunction Rope lights (also known as chasing lights) are strings of small bulbs enclosed in a flexible, transparent, and waterproof tube. They are similar to fairy lights in that they can be easily fixed and manipulated for certain projects, such as building words or motif lights.
Rope Motif Lights- Image or words on back-boards or 3D freestanding. Motif lights can display messages such as Happy Christmas or advertise a promotion or company name, or display a specific shape or character. They come in many lengths, colors, and multi-effects. Curtain and Net Lighting
Curtain and Net Lighting
Curtain Lighting is similar in design to string lights, except that the wire holding the bulbs drops vertically from the top horizontal cable and then back up at regular intervals. This gives the curtain effect. They are available in a variety of lengths. Some run straight down the bottom, while others have a shaped bottom such as a scalloped line or ragged.
Net Lighting is similar to string lighting except that the bulbs are not connected to a long string. Instead, the wires are connected to a net. They are usually square or rectangular in construction and come in many sizes. You can place them outside over shrubs, hedges and other features. This is easier than string lighting.
Fibre Tip Light – fluffy & effective
Fibre tip lighting is not for real illumination. It is lightweight, fluffy, and easy to use. It’s made from tiny bulbs that are attached to what looks like nylon fibres. These fibers move with the breeze and can be seen as a ring. They can have some spectacular effects and are quite beautiful.
Uplights – To highlight trees, patios, or other features
It’s possible to use uplights to highlight specific features. Some have the capability to illuminate large areas. These are ideal for commercial purposes and can be used to highlight historic buildings, such as historic event venues. You can also find smaller versions with many uses. They are especially good for shining light from underneath trees, which can create stunning shadows and look amazing. While uplights can be used to connect to mains power, they are also ideal to use solar power.
While they are not the same product as uplighting, walk-over uplights can lighten walkways and patios. They can be easily walked over and installed flush to the ground. These lights are not only decorative, but also help to define space and create an atmosphere in the surrounding area.
