Deck lighting can completely transform the look and feel of your outdoor area.

  • Holman offers DIY kits that make installing deck lighting quick and easy.
  • Remember that different colours will have different effects in the garden. White lights will produce the most natural effect and highlight the different colours in your garden.
  • Red lights will cause your plants to appear brown and green lights will accentuate their colours but not in a natural way.
  • Blue lights will give your garden a mysterious, tropical feel.
  • Holman’s RGB Colour Wi-Fi deck lights kit is a plug and play system. Everything you need for the lights is in the box.
  • The lights come in 2 different sizes: 30mm and 40mm. They are waterproof and will withstand the sun, rain, wind, cold and heat.
  • They’re 12V, so anyone can install them, and they can be placed a maximum of  1.8m apart.
  • The lights join together using a simple plug and socket system. You just drill your hole, push the cable through, put the light in and join them up behind.
  • Using the Wi-Fi controller, you can adjust the colour, intensity and pattern of your lights.
  • You can set a timer to turn your lights on and off, or you can do it manually from the Holman Home app.
  • Blue is said to attract insects, so keeping the lights at the far end on blue will draw them away from where you are sitting.
