  • Control—LED lighting offers you unmatched control over your lighting environment. With technologies including (but not limited to) dim-ability, timers, occupancy sensors, daylighting, and smart phone optimization you’ve never had more control over the lighting in your business.


  • Versatility—LED lights can be used for any purpose. Utilize LED lighting in your parking lot, art display, and office space to maximize light quality and energy savings.


  • Energy Efficiency—When LEDs offer 80% more efficient lighting than traditional incandescent bulbs, you can’t go wrong.


  • Lifespan—LEDs are designed to burn from between 50,000 to 100,000 hours. Traditional lighting only burns from 1,000 to 30,000 hours.  Save money with a higher quality product.


  • Less Heat—LED lighting produces less heat than traditional lighting applications. This means that you save on the cost of running your AC unit during the summer.



  • Safer Light—Did you know that fluorescent lightbulbs contain mercury? This means that if a bulb breaks, you run the risk of being exposed.  LEDs contain neither mercury nor CO2, making LEDs good for the environment and good for you!


  • Durability—Speaking of breaking, LEDs are very difficult to break. This lessens the likelihood of injury or inconvenience in dealing with a shattered fluorescent or incandescent bulb.
