Today’s Exterior LEDs Offering Some New Bright Ideas

The first generation of outdoor LED lighting products sold themselves on their energy and maintenance savings. The economic advantages they offered versus traditional lamps and fixtures were, indeed, significant. But now manufacturers are taking advantage of digital technology to create products offering entirely new capabilities.
