Tradition has it that the 8th of December, the day of the Immaculate Conception, coincides with the start of the Christmas decorations, which will remain (always as tradition) until the 6th of January.
Those who do not want to be found unprepared and buy the best must take precautions now and if they do not want to be harnessed by city traffic, they can proceed to some excursions in online stores such as Amazon. The ones we offer in the list below are just some of the best solutions that adapt to the most common lighting needs.
Philips Hue for outdoors
For example, they are part of the list the Philips Hue series LED strips specially designed for outdoor use: they are 5 meters long and resistant to atmospheric agents, but above all they can be controlled remotely via the app from smartphones and tablets, with which you can also customize the color and light intensity. We remind you that you can manage them through a Bridge Hue Wi-Fi and from this control them via Homekit, Alexa and Google Assistant by changing color and intensity via voice. You can also create scenes to change color at a certain time or use the Hue applications also via the Web for more complex controls. Find all the information in the Philips Hue section of our website.
Chains of LED lights
There are chains of LED lights for Christmas lights that do not need to be connected to the mains: they are powered by a solar panel that can be easily fixed with a stake to the garden and are therefore an excellent solution to illuminate the driveway without having to remember to turn them on and off at specific times of the day and without any consumption. In fact, the lamps automatically turn on at dusk and turn off at dawn, accumulating the necessary energy during the day through the built-in solar panel.
Projection of lights
There are also several indoor and outdoor solutions that provide for the projection of lights point or real images on the walls of a shop or house. They are in fact projectors that can be installed directly in the garden (therefore waterproof and storm-proof) or fixed to the wall or even resting on a shelf. By feeding them, they can automatically project moving images among snowflakes, reindeers, Christmas trees and other themed images selectable through replaceable cards included in the package.
Another solution for the Christmas lights are those waterfall, characterized by strips of small LEDs (for a total of 306 lamps) that can be positioned for example behind the head of the bed, around the perimeter of a gazebo, on the handrail of the stairs or simply along a wall.
Smart light kit
But perhaps the most interesting option for our readers the Twinkly light kit, consisting of a chain of 105 LEDs programmable from the smartphone. Ideally, place them around the Christmas tree and then decide directly via unapp the type of lighting to be projected. You can choose from hundreds of styles, also going to draw their own directly on the screen and then see them projected in real time on the tree in the house or displayed in a shop window.
