Surface-mounted Spotlights Porch; What are they?
The name says it all. In contrast to LED recessed spotlights, LED surface-mounted spotlights are mounted on the beams of your porch. You will see them sitting on the beams of your porch.
The LED surface-mounted spotlights are sold in set form. Every set consists of 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 LED construction spotlights porch, including one transformer with a connector. The transformer converts the current into the correct working voltage. The connector ensures that multiple spotlights can work with one transformer.
Do you want more than 12 spotlights on your porch? Then we recommend you contact our LED specialists. They will advise you on how best to go about this.
The sets have only one transformer. This ensures that you can keep the transformer outside the beams of your porch. This is also the reason why each surface-mounted spotlight is equipped with up to 5 meters of cable. Because the transformer and connector are hidden away at the beginning of the porch (for instance in the click profile of the porch or in a wall box), 230 Volt (high voltage) does not run through the beams of your porch. Instead of 230 volts, only 3 - 6 volts (low voltage) run through your porch. This is optimal for your safety.
For some sets, you also need a LED receiver. A LED receiver ensures that the LED porch spotlights can communicate with another system, such as Somfy. Below, you can read which sets these are.
You can choose from the following sets:
- BAS set
- AB set
- Somfy IO set
This set is a general set. You can expand the BAS set with a switch, LED rotary dimmer Atlas, Push dimmer Novex, remote control Moon and/or our own app. If you want to control the spotlights with the Novex, Moon and/or our app, you need to order the wifi LED receiver as well. When you purchase the wifi LED receiver, you automatically get free access to our own app. You can then simply create a free account and create and control different rooms!
You can also combine this set with a motion detector. This is ideal for in a carport.
The transformer and connector included with the BAS set are series-connected. Is one surface-mounted spot broken? Then all the surface-mounted spotlights will fail. But don't worry! The transformer and connector are outside the porch so you can quickly fix the problem. By taking the surface-mounted spotlights out of the connector one by one, you can see which one is broken. Have you removed a spotlight? Then fill the empty spot with a jumper. The connector must be completely filled, otherwise, the lighting will not work anyway.
This is what you get with the BAS set:
- 4, 6, 8, 10, or 12 LED surface porch spotlights (3 Watt)
- Serie LED transformer with connector (including jumpers)
Not included (must be ordered separately):
- On/off switch (not in our range)
- LED rotary dimmer Atlas
- Push dimmer Novex
- Remote control Moon
- Wifi LED receiver (free access to Hamulight app)
- Motion detector
AB stands for remote control. The AB sets are operated with the Hamulight remote control. This set is complete, and you do not need to order anything separately.
The supplied connector is parallel. This means that when a spot breaks down, not all spotlights fail, but only the broken spot. This means that you do not have to find out which spot is broken. You do need to check whether it is the spot or the wiring.
This is what you get with the AB set:
- 6, 8, 10, or 12 LED surface-mounted porch spotlights (3 watts)
- A parallel LED transformer with a connector
- Hamulight remote control
Somfy IO set
Do you already have Somfy IO-controlled devices in your house (e.g. roller blinds or sunblinds) or do you want to work with Somfy? Then this Somfy IO set is for you! This set can be linked to other Somfy IO-controlled devices in the house. So, for example, you can control your roll-down shutters and lighting with one remote control.
The connector supplied with this set is a series connector. Make sure you order the Somfy IO LED receiver as well. This is not included in the set, but you do need it for the operation of the LED surface-mounted porch spotlights.
This is what you receive with the Somfy IO set:
- 6, 8, 10, or 12 LED surface-mounted porch spotlights (3 Watt)
- One series LED Somfy IO transformer with connector (including jumpers)
Not included (must be ordered separately):
- Somfy IO LED receiver
- Somfy IO 5-channel remote control (including holder and battery)
What are the important specifications of LED surface-mounted porch lights?
The last thing we want is for you to buy surface-mounted lighting that does not comply with your wishes. To avoid this, we now look at an important specification of surface-mounted porch lights.
Do you want to know to what extent the surface-mounted lights are protected? Then look at the IP value of LED spotlights. The IP value consists of two digits. The higher the digits, the better the protection. LED spotlights that are placed on the porch must have an IP value of 44 (IP-44). IP-44 spotlights are resistant to dust and are splash-proof. And that is more than enough for your porch. In our assortment, you will only find surface-mounted porch spotlights with a minimum of IP-44.
Why choose porch spotlights?
We have already mentioned several advantages along the way. To keep things clear, we have summarised them for you:
- Atmospheric and functional lighting at the same time
- The sets are specially designed for porches
- Sets with only one transformer
- Stylish designs
- The LED surface spotlights are certified
- All surface spotlights are dimmable
- Cosy warm white light
- Easy to assemble
- The sets are Plug & Play
How many surface-mounted spotlights do you need?
We advise using 2 spotlights per inner beam for a porch up to 3 meters. Normally no spotlights are placed on the two outer beams. In this way, the light is well-distributed.
4m x 3m (3 inner beams) = 6 porch spotlights
5m x 3m (4 inner beams) = 8 porch spotlights
6m x 3m (5 inner beams) = 10 porch spotlights
7m x 3m (6 inner beams) = 12 porch spotlights
Do you have a porch of 4 meters or deeper? Then we advise using more spotlights per beam.
Use 3 spotlights per beam if you have a porch of 4 meters or deeper!
What can in not forget while ordering?
Do you want to order a BAS set? Don't forget to add a control option (if needed), such as the Push dimmer Novex or remote control Moon. Note: you should also purchase the wifi LED receiver. You will then automatically get access to our app. Operate only with app? You can! Then add just the wifi LED receiver in addition to the set.
Would you like to order the Somfy IO set? Then don't forget to order the Somfy IO receiver and Somfy IO remote control.
- Want to hide the transformer and connector neatly and watertight? Then order a wall box as well!
- Order an extension lead if you have too little cabling.
