Precautions for choosing commercial outdoor led strip lights
It is very important to find the right lighting to illuminate your business environment. Each commercial space has its own unique lighting needs. If you are not sure which lamp is best for your space, please contact one of our lighting experts who will help you combine the layout to optimize the lighting function of your workplace and meet your budget. What should be paid attention to when choosing commercial outdoor led strip lights?

1. Color temperature
Although you may know the brightness of the LED you want (at least use a flash on the circuit or light source), the color temperature and lumens per watt may not be so obvious. Color temperature only applies to white light: it is a measure of how cold (blue) or warm (red) light appears. This can be deceptive because the color of light measured in Kelvin (K) formally describes the appearance of metal (black body radiator) burning at various high temperatures.

2. Light Wavelength
Another common problem that people encounter when choosing LEDs (light-emitting diodes) is that the shade of green or blue is not what they expect. In order to get the color you really want, you must pay attention to the wavelength specifications to determine, for example, whether you want to get a true green or yellow-green.

3. Indicator light
If your application requires simple visual notifications (for example, a flashing light on the router), you can simplify the entire process and include an indicator LED. The indicator LED can use almost any color and can be determined according to the size of the application.

4. Wavelength visibility
Visibility depends on the viewing angle of the LED and how well our eyes see the color, as well as the lumen output of the diode. For example, a green LED running at 2 mW looks as bright to us as a red LED running at 20 mA. The human eye has better green sensitivity than any other wavelength, and the sensitivity is biased toward infrared and ultraviolet on both sides of the peak. Check the visible spectrum below for reference. Red is one of the more difficult colors to brighten the human eye because it is closer to the edge and can be transformed into invisible infrared light.

5. Perspective description
The viewing angle of an LED refers to the distance from the center of the beam before the light loses half its intensity. Common values ​​are 45 degrees and 120 degrees, but light pipes or other light guides that focus light on the beam may require a tighter viewing angle of 15 degrees or less.
