4 Types of Exterior Lighting

Learn about the different types of outdoor lighting from Five Star below:


These lights use fixtures like spotlights, lanterns, sconces, and globes to create an aesthetically pleasing lighting design outdoors that highlights building and landscaping features at night. Landscape lights also improve safety and security. They are used in parks, office building terraces, public spaces and pathways, exits and entrances, walkways, and driveways. They are common near architectural, signage, or landscaping features


All types of outdoor light can use motion sensors or photo controls to manage to light. The motion sensors cause the lights to turn on when something passes by the infrared beam. Then, the lighting kicks on for a specified time. This is a great safety device and security feature. However, it’s also a great energy saver. Typically, the lights stay on for a few minutes at most at a time.

A photocontrol or photocell acts more like a timer. This is most commonly found on lights in parking lots. The lights come on at dusk or during certain levels of darkness. They turn off in the morning as the sun rises. Photocells are also used for a lot of different outdoor lighting applications. Depending on how long you want lights to stay on after the sensor detects movement, built-in timers can be adjusted according to your needs.


This type of outdoor lighting provides focused light that emphasizes a specific feature for safety, path lighting, or aesthetics. Spotlights enable homeowners to highlight specific areas without casting wide beams of light in any other unwanted direction. Spotlights are used primarily around signage, entryways, near architecture, for landscaping, and around pools, fountains, ponds, and waterfalls. They are popular way finders for pathways and walkways.


This type of outdoor lighting has an adjustable-angle beam that can be rotated to focus on a specific area. Floodlights can be installed inside the ground or they can be mounted on outdoor structures, like poles or walls. There are LED floodlights that last longer and use less energy than floodlights that use fluorescent lamps or halogen. Usually, outdoor floodlights are used to aim light at a fixed item like a flagpole or monument. They are also used to illuminate large areas like parks, sports fields, playgrounds and parking lots. Floodlights improve safety by making it easier for people to see hazards. They prevent property damage, crime, and vandalism. One study showed how outdoor lighting reduced crime by nearly 40% in urban areas. Floodlights are popular in driveways and walkways, outdoor pools, patios, pavilions, performance venues, billboards, signs and more.
