This week, we’re spotlighting a light fixture that can really help you put the “spotlight” on your favorite indoor and outdoor architectural features.

Meet the LED In-Ground Accent Light:

LED Accent Lights

Each of these LEDs uses only 1.4 watts of power to create a generous flood beam. The lights have a durable stainless steel body, and a rated life of 50,000 hours, so the beauty they provide will stand the test of time.


When you’re traipsing up and down flights of stairs, these LEDs can light your way.

When you’re strolling on walkways (inside and outside), these LEDs can speckle your path with their beauty.

When you’re enjoying your landscape after dark, these LEDs can show it off in the best light.

When you’re enamored with the architecture of your home or building, these LEDs can help you enhance it.


This light fixture might seem little and cute, but when you take a closer look, it’s nothing if not heavy-duty.

LED Accent Light Product

The tempered glass lens allows for use in walk-over locations, and you can operate the light in environments ranging from -4 to 113 degrees Fahrenheit. It has an Ingress Protection (IP) rating of IP67, which means it won’t be damaged by dust intrusion, and it can withstand temporary immersion underwater.

These accent lights have a color temperature of 3,000K (warm white) and a color rendering index (CRI) of 82. The beam spread of the light is a medium flood of 62 degrees.


You need one 12-volt DC hardwire electronic LED driver for each continuous run of lights. The driver’s wattage should be no less than the total wattage of the run you’re powering.

To determine the wattage you need to power these lights, multiply the number of lights you have times 1.4 watts. For example: 15 lights x 1.4 watts = A driver rated for at least 21 watts.

Each accent light wires directly into the LED driver; you can’t wire them in a series or link them together. We recommend keeping the lights no more than 35 feet from the driver to avoid voltage drop.

    Illuminate! LED lights make for the perfect in-ground luminaire because of the durability. The do not have filaments or other breakable parts, so people can step on them with no damage done! Plus they are manufactured without mercury which makes them environmentally safe. Another reason that they are safe to put in public areas is that they only produce a small amount of heat. LEDs sure are great!
