Zoning Is Now Standard on All FX LED Fixtures

Zoning is now an included option on all LED fixtures from FX. A Luxor ZD must be used to utilize zoning, but the fixture will still work with UL1838 transformers as they always have. So whether a Luxor ZD controller is used or not, the ability to zone fixtures is now a standard feature on all FX LED fixtures. ZD Technology™ includes the ability to both zone and dim. This is just another way that FX Luminaire is continuing to push the limits of landscape lighting technology and control.

Two of FX Luminaire’s Favorite Path Lights are Now Available in LED

The TD and FG offer the same simple symmetry and slender silhouettes as their incandescent counterparts with more energy efficient 1, 3, 6 or 9LED lamp option. Like all of FX Luminaire’s LED path lights, the TD and FG come standard with amber, green, blue and frosted filters and are capable of zoning and dimming on a Luxor ZD system. The TD offers an asymmetrical elliptical lighting pattern that pushes the light out in front of the fixture making it great for area perimeter lighting.  A great application...

The Argument of Integrated Versus Drop-in LEDs

For a few years now there has been an ongoing, as well as growing, discussion about integrated LED fixtures versus “drop-in”, or LED lamps, that fit into a halogen or incandescent designed fixture.  There are pluses and minuses to both sides so let’s dive in and identify what each has to offer. The drop-in LED lamp (especially the MR-16) has gained in popularity with outdoor lighting due to the millions upon millions of fixtures already available and in the ground.  Although more expensive than replacing...

Extending Your Nighttime Living Space

When deciding to embark on a project of lighting an outdoor space, most tend to think of what it will do to the exterior of a structure or property.  One of the amazing aspects that landscape lighting can do for the interior of a home is the extension of living space physically as well as visually. When light is brought to a dark outside back or front yard, it visually pushes the boundaries of a house.  The more elements that are lit push the edges of where a person will tend to gravitate to as well as...

FX Luminaire Releases 3 New Fixtures

FX Luminaire's innovation-filled LED catalog has expanded once again. New fixtures include the LC, TM, and PL. The LC is the broadest spectrum wall-wash LED up light we've ever offered. The TM and PL are LED path lights constructed with light-weight aluminum. All three are available with ZD Technology for compatibility with Luxor, our cutting edge landscape lighting controller with zoning and dimming capability.

The Power of an Interactive Lighting Demonstration

Lighting demonstrations are usually framed within the simple context of a “selling tool”, but the real power of a nighttime lighting presentation is the person-to-person customer interaction. People buy from people. Your clients do not choose you just because you have the lowest bid on paper or because you have a nice website or because you drive a nice truck. Your clients choose you because of you. People buy from people they like and people they trust. If you are sitting down at your clients’ kitchen...

Constantly Adjusting Light for the Mood and Time

The majority of lighting systems are setup to turn on or off.  Some utilize dimmers in certain areas to great effect and others carefully choose wattage to decide the proper amount of light to place on a structure, foliage or area.  A system that can wrap these into one central control unit is really the pinnacle of a designer focused system. Ideally, any light system isn’t a singular system.  Sometimes a design will be utilized with a front yard and back yard, or split into different areas to get a bit...
