There are many reasons why LED lights have mostly replaced other kinds of lights in certain situations. They are known for being more durable and longer-lasting, which makes them perfect for jobs when replacing the lights frequently can prove to be troublesome or very time-consuming. They are also known for the small amount of power they use, which is an overwhelmingly good trait to have in any situation honestly. There are also two different types of LED lights that you can get, depending on exactly what you want them to do. These are the coloured and the uncoloured.
The LED street lights are the most common place where the uncoloured variety are used to the best effect. This is because they are not only the brightest, but also great at directional lighting. What this means is that the way they project light is perfect for brightly illuminating the area they are pointed towards. While this does limit their usefulness in overly wide spaces (unless a much greater number of them is used), this is also the reason why the LED street lights are a perfect fit for lighting stretches of road at specific intervals along a path. Additionally, a lot of LED street lights also come with a solar panel attachment which is a perfect fit, since it can only store energy while the lights themselves are inactive, and the amount saved is perfect to run the conservative LEDs even in less than ideal conditions.
While the uncoloured lights are used in everything, from stadium floodlights and security camera lights, the coloured ones are admittedly a bit more limited in their function, but a lot more diverse in the areas in which they can be applied. Put another way, while the clear kind is used to provide adequate lighting to a space, the coloured LED lights are mostly used for the singular purpose of attracting someone’s attention and making themselves stand out. This makes them popular in nightclubs or bars as both mood lighting or a decorative feature. However, they can also be used in street lights of tunnels to draw the driver’s eye towards a vital piece of information they shouldn’t miss, to warn them of something up ahead, or to simply properly mark the road in bad weather conditions or construction.
Both types of lights can be used in a variety of situations to accomplish a large number of tasks that they would be perfect for, but the only difference is that a certain type is more ideal to a certain situation.
