Low Voltage LED Landscape Lighting
Low voltage landscape lighting is a beautiful, flexible, and cost effective way to add illumination to your landscaping, pathway, or outside walls of your house. You can choose between pathway lights, up lights, down lights, submersible lights, accent lights, or any combination of the mentioned. The possibilities are endless with low voltage LED lights. We only choose the highest quality fixtures from cast brass, aluminum, or our favorite – solid copper fixtures which weather nicely for our landscape lighting installations. Low voltage outdoor lighting fixtures that require a 12 volt transformer to feed the individual lights. Because these lights are powered by low voltage lighting, wires can safely used in places where lighting is not possible with traditional line voltage lighting and tend to use less power than their line voltage counterparts.
LED landscape retrofit
For many years, Mercury Vapor lighting was the standard workhorse for high output tree and moon lighting because of the soft “cool” light, they produce. Because Mercury Vapor lights require line voltage and each light is connected to a ballast, installation of these lights were more costly compared to their low voltage counterparts but at the time, there was often no choice as halogens couldn’t be bright enough and had a different color temperature. That has all changed now with LED lighting.
Mercury Vapor lights have been phased out and LED lights are the present and future of high output landscape lighting. LED lighting comes in a variety of color temperatures and a wide variety of lighting output from soft to extremely bright lights.
If you already have existing mercury vapor or halogen lights and your wiring is in good condition, we can replace them with the latest in LED light fixtures using existing wiring. In some cases your existing light fixtures are in working condition, we can retrofit them with the proper LED lighting as well to bring them up to date and take advantage of LED lighting.
If you don’t already have any lighting and want us to install high output LED lighting, of course we can install those as well. No matter which method of lighting you choose, Light-Tech inc. is Houston’s landscape lighting installer.

Security lighting can run all night, ,triggered by a timer, motion sensor, or a combination of all of the above depending on your needs.
