How Many Lumens Does An Outdoor LED Floodlight Need?



The number of lumens you need from your floodlight Is determined by what you are using your floodlight for and where it is situated. LED floodlights come in a range of powers and lumens. Ranging from 10watts, 30 watts all the way to 100watts. The best way to discover how many lumens you need is to look at lumens themselves and color temperature to calculate how many you need. It is important to specify that the number of lumens calculated and the number of lumens you will be able to purchase from light will not be an exact figure. 


How Many Lumens Do You Need For Outdoor Lighting?


For outdoor lighting, it would depend on what you’re trying to illuminate with your floodlight. Smaller patios, gardens, and driveways will require fewer lumens and larger driveways, gardens, and patios will require more. To give a rough estimation here is a table below:



Color Temperatures For Outdoor Lighting


The ideal solution for exterior floodlights is an RGB Floodlight. This is because they provide you color options along with a daylight beam. The color options can adapt to different outdoor lighting needs while a daylight beam can be used for security and practical reasons. The ideal color temperature for security lighting would be 5000K daylight, as it provides the most contrast from darkness allowing you to identify objects easier outside.
