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 or LED dimmer.
You can also combine this set with a motion detector. Both are available on our website.
The connector supplied with the BAS set is a series connector. 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 dimmer
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
Which build-on spotlights do you need?
The informative part is over. It's time to start looking for your ideal surface-mounted porch light. We do this by following the steps below. Use the filter function for this!
Step 1: Determine which conservatory light set you want
Filter on BAS, AB or Somfy IO. You see only a set with Gomera spots.
Congratulations on your ideal surface-mounted spotlight!
Step 2: Choose the number of spotlights
You have already chosen the surface-mounted spot. Now determine the number of spotlights you need to light your porch.
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!
Step 3: Add the requisites
Did you choose a BAS or Somfy set? Then order the Somfy receiver and remote control as well! The BAS set can also be combined with a motion detector.
Step 4: Add the accessories
- Want to beautifully hide the transformer and connector and keep it watertight? Then order a wall box!
- Order an extension lead if you don’t have enough cabling.
