If it seems like everywhere you go lighting has become a focal point, you’re right! The newest generation of LED light displays are more versatile than ever. They deliver solutions for lighting, art, communication, advertising, safety, and more. Here are just a few reasons why your new LED lighting display will outshine the competition.
Vibrant Light Quality
Let’s begin with the most traditional function, providing light. LEDs are replacing fluorescent and incandescent bulbs for a variety of reasons on the list below—but also because they deliver bright and vibrant white light. Often arranged in a series of small bulbs, their light quality is brighter than fluorescent and incandescent lighting. For example, an LED sconce may be small but provides enough lighting to work or read. And many LED signs are so vibrant you can easily read them from several blocks away.
The challenge with traditional lighting alternatives is that the light is one wattage. Unless you have a dimmer switch, this wattage can be brighter or dimmer than you want it to be. Maybe too bright at night when you are ready to wind down for the day. Whether to illuminate a room or as an LED lighting display, you can adjust the brightness of LEDs to ensure it’s just right. This includes adjusting it to ensure visibility in all outdoor settings or to set the mood indoors.
It’s not the first word that comes to mind when you think of lighting, but LEDs are flexible. Since the bulbs are smaller than a pencil eraser, they can be framed in a variety of ways to deliver countless display options. From advanced string lights to flexible panels that you can bend and shape, and enclosed hard panels ordered in custom sizes. However, many of the displays you order are ready-made products that don’t have to be placed or shaped. For example, scrolling LED signs contain LEDs, so all you have to do is hang them in your window or wall. No building your display from scratch.
We’ve already mentioned a few different LED options, but the options are endless and continue to evolve. You can find LEDs in everything from:
- Functional lighting
- Decorative lighting
- Art & display case lighting
- Art displays
- Light panels
- Mixed medium signs
- Safety clothing & gear
- TV, notebook, & computer screens
- Multi-purpose digital signs—communication, ads promotions, safety, etc.
- And more!
The world has gone mobile, and this includes your LED lighting display! Many, but not all, LED options are USB rechargeable, battery-operated, or solar-powered. Those that require an electrical outlet or hardwiring are still designed to be mobile. For example, your digital billboard will be hardwired but your window sign plugs in so that you can move it as you adjust your window displays. Also, consider upgrading to wireless power transfer technology so that you don’t have to plug-in, hardwire, or replace batteries in most of your electronic devices.
White light never goes out of style, but variety is the spice of life. Many LEDs have the capacity to deliver more than standard white. Order your LEDs in singular colors, a limited color range, or in advanced options that can create any color on the hex color range. For example, a full HD digital display can deliver over a billion colors!
Ever wonder how the latest screens can deliver life-like high definition? It’s thanks to advanced LED technology. This technology provides more than lighting and more than text, but also the ability to post and create high-definition photos, videos, and art. The sky is the limit here as with the right technology you can create detail and dimension. You can even post and create 3D and 4D motion graphics.
If your LED lighting display is smart, you can manage it through an app or software. For example, many smart displays have an app that allows you to turn it on and off, adjust the color, and adjust brightness from any remote location. The more advanced your technology, the more advanced your remote control options. For example, scrolling signs come with a keyboard and more advanced signs come with intuitive software so that your text or digital displays can be updated in real-time.
In addition to updating your lighting or display in real-time, you can also pre-program your visual displays. Rotate between a variety of text-only messages, photos, images, videos, ads, and more. For example, if you have a full HD sign in your restaurant you can pre-program it to post breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the appropriate times of the day. Or your church can pre-program a daily quote or scripture. Schools can pre-program daily events and reminders for students and parents during drop-off and pick-up.
Durable Enough For Outdoor Use
You may only have the need to place your LED lighting display indoors, but they are durable enough for outdoor placement too. If you are ordering a ready-made product, ensure it has the built-in components to function outdoors. For larger displays, you can have your sign or lighting custom-built for your local weather. This includes the ability to post signs in extreme heat, extreme cold, humidity, ice, snow, and high winds. Also, with the proper pixels and brightness features for how high your sign will be placed off the ground—and for your desired viewing range.
Last but certainly not least, LEDs are the most energy-efficient lights available! They draw 80 percent less energy than traditional fluorescent and incandescent lights. With proper maintenance and care, they last up to 11 years, longer if they aren’t on 24 hours a day. Another green benefit of LED signage is that they minimize your need for printing out paper signs.
