How to choose the right LED floodlight

From residential to industrial needs, selecting the right LED floodlight can be a challenging task. Floodlights are a cost-effective solution to high-intensity light for outdoor areas. They provide additional security as well as quality illumination if placed strategically.

Depending on your requirements, here are a few questions you need to answer before choosing the correct LED floodlight for your business or home:


Deciding where to place your floodlight is the first step when choosing your LED Floods. Is it for Ambiance or Security? Does it need to be on the building or wall?

Beam Angle

Would you need light to cover the whole area or maybe be focused on a specific section? A beam angle of 120 degrees is ideal for most requirements.


More lumens = more brightness. Are you using the light for purely security purposes? Or would you like to light up your outdoor areas for entertainment purposes?


LED floodlights are an energy-efficient way to light up your outdoor areas. Using LEDs with lower wattages can reduce your carbon footprint. Also, LEDs consume less power and last longer than incandescent and fluorescent lamps, saving you money on electricity bills.


Sensor floodlights have become the latest trend in the LED lighting market. We now have the luxury of having motion sensors (which are triggered on Movement) or day/night sensor floodlights that turn on automatically when the sun goes down.

Colour Temperature

LED Floods are available in a variety of colour temperatures:

3000K – Warm whites are generally used in the residential sector and can be great when used to enhance architectural features.

4000K – Neutral white is ideal for customers who want the warmth of warm white mixed in with a touch of crisp that cool white has to offer.

6000K – Cool white is the most common colour temperature when selecting LEDs for security lighting purposes.

RGB – RGB LED Floodlights bring colour and life to any entertainment area and can also be used to highlight your best architectural feature.
