The transformer for outdoor lighting installation is the device that step down high voltage current 120V to 12V for outdoor lighting fixtures consumption.
High Voltage is 120V.
Low Voltage is 12V.
The Outdoor Lighting system and exterior lights fixtures that we install are Low Voltage; that means that we need to use a transformer to be able to use lighting fixtures that use 12V current. If, let say, we try to use a fixture with high voltage 120V, we will burn the bulb, wire and the whole fixture.
Usually we install the transformer at the side of your home and then we do the digging to install all the wire. Sometimes, we install the transformer in different locations-garage, backyard, etc- due to a need we can have or because the layout is better in that way.
The transformer is responsible as the electronic element to supply all the low voltage current to all fixtures installed in your home. To control the lights On/Off we install a timer inside the transformer and then you can create a schedule to be working at your please.
Benefits of Low Voltage Lighting
If you are considering installing Outdoor Lighting in your home, the options are unlimited. There are different ways to accent sections, objects, trees, palms , fixtures and designs to accomplish that. One of our most famous design that our clients loved is recessed lights -also known as soffit lights or ceiling lights- in where we combine lights that we install in top sections and lights that are located in bottom sections or elements of the landscape.
Installation: Sienna Plantation, TX. Year 2022.
As you can see in this installation, we installed recessed lights in the top sections and also we installed lights in the bottom sections for the fence, for the trees located aside of the pool and the corners.
When you combine top & bottom you get a nicer result!
The synergy of those elements located in different sections-top, bottom, around pool, trees, fence-create a better result and gives you a nicer experience at night looking at your home.
