 Installing low voltage exterior lighting

 

Most low voltage exterior lighting kits contain everything you will need, with lights that are

attractive, reliable, and easy to install. Purchase a kit that has as many lights as you want. If you are

installing more than 12 lights, you may want to purchase another kit rather than trying to add lights,

which may put undue stress on the wiring. The wires carry only 12 volts of power, so you do not

need to apply for an electrical permit. But you need to plug into an outdoor electrical receptacle,

which should be protected by a ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI). If you do not have such a

receptacle, you will need to install one. Most low voltage exterior lighting kits come with a

transformer that is equipped with a programmable timer. Make sure the transformer has all the

options you are looking for, for instance, the ability to set the lights on a timer, or a photocell that

turns lights on when it senses motion or when day fades to darkness.

 

 

 

 

Installing outdoor low voltage lighting wire.

 

1. Make sure your receptacle is (GFCI) protected. If necessary, shut off power to the circuit, and

install an in-use cover to protect it from rain while the lights are plugged in.

 

 

2. Near the receptacle and in a spot where it is not likely to get bumped, mount the transformer with

screws driven into the siding or other stable surface.

3. Experiment with the placement of the light fixtures until you are satisfied with the arrangement.

Run the wire past the lights. Joint the wires using the connectors provided. Most types simply snap

or screw together.

 

 

 

 

 

4.Poke each light into the ground, and cover the wires with some mulch or soil. Than Attach the

wires to the transformer, and program the lights to turn on and off at certain times, or you can have

them come on when it gets dark. Job well done enjoy your low voltage outdoor lights.
