The first thing that you can think about when using LED landscape lighting is how to select them. If ever you have made the right selection with the help of your landscaper, the next thing that you might want to do is to look into the triggering devices for those lights that can make the whole system light up. There are quite a few of them to choose from and to give you a good idea; some LED landscape lighting kits will have the triggering device as part of the kit. In order to be able to get the device that will be best for you let us take a look at them, starting with the easiest one.
The flip switch mechanism has got to be the simplest way in which you can activate your LED landscape lighting fixtures. You only need to turn it on with a switch and then turn it off in the opposite way. Some switches differ in the way they can be activated but still, it does not change the fact that you have to use your hands with it.
Speaking of hands, another type of method is to use motion sensors. This is the good type of trigger device because it makes use of sound waves to detect motion.
If ever there is something going on at the front yard, everything will easily light up. This may seem like the best type of primary protection but it will surely get annoying whenever the sensors get too sensitive.
Last but not the least, you can always make use of the timer activated mechanisms where you only need to program the whole system with the use of the timer programmer. You can change the setting every now and then for adjustments with the season. A lot of people love this but those who are not good with technology, they hate this device so much because they cannot simply get around with programming.
It is truly nice to have some complex device manipulate your LED solar garden lights or your Kichler LED landscape lighting, but it would be very practical to stick with the simple one. It may not be flashy or fancy but at least it gets the job done.
