With the festive season around the corner, many Singaporeans are looking for Decorative LED Lights to light up their homes and furnishings. Decorative lights are a fun and affordable way for us to bring festive cheer into our homes.
In the past, Decorative lights were made with tungsten bulbs. These created a lot of heat, posing potential fire hazards, and they also consumed a lot of electricity. Today, LED lights are a safer, more energy efficient alternative.
LED lights are highly efficient in converting electricity to light with little energy wasted on byproducts like heat. As lesser heat is generated, this means LED lights tend to be safer compared to their tungsten counterparts.
However, although LED technology is readily available today, not all LED decorative lights are made equal. LUMI’s Decorative LED lights use 2.5mm wires instead of the traditional 1.4mm used by other brands in Singapore. A thicker wire provides better insulation, allowing the wires to last longer.
Other brands also use smaller LED bulbs compared to Lumi. This in turn causes the bulbs to be unable to disperse light effectively, causing the lights to look less bright and beautiful when hung.
The control box is another component of the decorative light that is often overlooked. A thinner and lighter casing is often used by inferior brands which causes the control box to be weak and brittle. As the control box is usually placed on the ground, accidentally stepping on this box might cause it to break, hurting the user. This coupled with the thinner wires used, which run hot when the lights are left on for long periods of time, can cause the plastic to melt, leaving unsightly scar marks.
All these points are signs of an inferior branded LED Decorative lightning product. The main reasons these are in place are when brands are looking to cut cost at the expense of user safety or product longevity.
Here at Lumi, we strive to provide not only the best-LED lighting products for your home, but we also want to make sure that the products are safe for your family. When we design Lumi products, we strive to ensure that our products are safe and last a long time.
