Front Porch Lighting using Waterproof LED Strip Lights

Front Porch Light
Front Porch Light


A long front porch overhang is illuminated using our Ribbon Star Ultra Waterproof Warm White Light Strips. Unlike traditional wall mounted fixtures the LED strip can run the entire length of the porch, evenly lighting the seating and ground below. The strip light power requires 24 Volt DC power. In order to power the strip a power supply is required to change the 120VAC wall power to 24VDC. This is being done by our Mean Well 24VDC Waterproof Power Supply. The 240W has plenty of power and enough to drive all the strip lights with enough capacity to add to the circuit in the future. If you are considering lighting your front porch with LED strip lights, give us a call and we would be glad to help you with your project.

Deck LED Strip Lights with Long Continous Connections

Our customer used over 900ft of our 3000K Long Run 60LED/m Outdoor Strip Lights to accent the deck and patio of their spectacular backyard with a warm white glow. These special strips for outdoor use are designed to be powered from one end with serial connection up to 130ft. This makes the installation easier with less wiring and splicing and waterproofing of outdoor strips. The strip lights run off 24VDC power, which is being driven by multiple 240W Power Supplies. They wanted to be able to dim the different areas of lighting so we decided on using our 8 Zone Dimmer with wireless receivers to power and dim the different zones of lighting independent form one another. The end results are breathe taking and wonderfully enhance a beautiful outdoor gathering space for night time enjoyment.

LED Deck Lighting using Waterproof LED Strip Lights

For this outdoor deck lighting project our customer used 50ft of our Ribbon Star Waterproof Warm White LED Strip Lights to wrap the outer edge of his backyard deck. With a customized approach he found a way to securely fasten the strips to his deck. At 1.46 watts per foot this deck lighting porject only consumes around 70 watts of power and is being driven by a single 100W 12VDC Waterproof Power Supply. Our Outdoor 2 Conductor Wire was used for connection from the beginning of the strip light runs to the power source. As you can see our Ribbon Star is brighter than most people think and an ideal and affordable strip light for many lighting applications.

Ribbon Star Waterproof Strips add a Soft Glow to Outdoor Patio Railing

Using nine 118" pieces of our dimmable 12VDC Ribbon Star Warm White Waterproof LED Strip lights our customer cut and soldered customized lengths to create inviting and sleek lighting to the underside of their outdoor patio railing. Each strip already comes with one male and one female waterproof plug on each end and an additional wire to bare lead, so all they had to do was create the custom lengths with matching wire gender, after that the installation was a breeze. Power is being driven from two locations using one 36W 12V Waterproof Power Supply and one 100W 12V Waterproof Power Supply. A 5 Zone PWM Dimmer was added inline on the 12VDC side with two zone receivers giving them the option to dim and brighten the lighting for both entertaining and relaxing. The lighting turned out great and will be sure to last a lifetime, if you have a similar project or are curious on how this was done we are always here to help you with all your lighting projects both big and small.

Outdoor Patio Lighting using Max Waterproof LED Strip Lights

This customer used our 12VDC Ribbon Star Max White Waterproof Strip Lights to redo existing color changing RBG strips that were previously installed on the lip of his outdoor patio counter top. We received a phone call inquiring about replacing the existing 4 wire RGB color changing strip lights because LED sections keep going out. Rather than simply shipping him new strip lights we researched the problem and discovered that his 12V source was actually 12VAC (typical for landscape lighting transformers) which was causing the failures in the 12VDC strip lights. We recommended that he purchase a compatible 12VDC, 60W Waterproof Power Supply for his new new strip lights and even cut and soldered the custom lengths so he could easily install his new lighting with the existing wiring in place. Once he received the order it didn't take him long to install the new white strips light that will be sure to last much longer than the old strip lights. In his own word he said, "I wanted to thank you for the fantastic service you provided. The LED lights are awesome!!!"
