Outdoor Lighting Guide
What's the Difference Between Indoor and Outdoor Lighting Fixtures?
The main thing is that the installation location is different. The indoors light fixtures can be mounted on the ceiling and wall, but outdoor lighting lamps are without ceiling and wall and may often be mounted on the floor. Of course many outdoor lighting fixtures like LED flood lights and LED security lights installed on the wall, but the big difference is that there is a roof to keep out the wind and rain.
Therefore, the outdoor luminaires must have strict requirements for dust and water resistance. The degree of dust and moisture protection of the housing is classified according to the degree of protection, usually using the protection class code IP rating.
What is IP Rating of Outdoor Lighting Fixtures?
IP stands for ingress protection and the IP code indicate a level of protection usually consists of the characteristic letter IP and two characteristic numbers. The first digit refers to dustproof; the second to waterproof.
Here you can check the IP ratings explained.

Outdoor Lighting Types
In general, for outdoor lighting, it is divided into three categories: architectural lighting, landscape lighting and functional lighting.
A traditional outdoor lighting fixture is one that makes a cavity, putting a light source in it, protecting and supporting it. So that it can work properly.
The bulb is installed in the fixture and the fixture’s reflector, lens, and grille help to match the light, projecting the light from the bulb to where it is needed. In terms of Gas discharge lamp fixture, it includes ballast.
Mechanical system: fixing, protection, support, safety
Electrical system: power supply, maintenance, insulation, control
Optical system: anti-glare, light distribution
All gas discharge lamps require a ballast. One end of the ballast is connected to the power supply, and the other end is connected to the light bulb.
- The ballast has three basic functions
Convert the power supply voltage to the voltage required by the bulb.
- Provide high starting voltage required for discharge.
- The ballast limits the current to the specified value after the lamp is started.
LED outdoor lighting fixutures are different. It derives light by using a lens or the like. This is similar to the concept of indoor lighting. However, outdoor lighting lamps pay more attention to waterproof and dustproof protection.
1) Fixture body: fixed support
2) Radiator: heat dissipation of the outdoor lamps
3) Optical devices: lens, reflector
Light source: LED diode (point or surface)
Electrical appliances: high voltage, low voltage
