LED Integrated Outdoor Wall Lights Have Numerous Benefits - Check it Out

Integrated LED Outdoor Wall Lights
Review of an Integrated LED Outdoor Wall Light

We needed a new outdoor wall light for our backyard. 

Like most people, I did my research.

I researched standard outdoor wall lights that use lightbulbs and tripped on integrated LED wall lights.

What is an LED Integrated Wall Light? A Point Form Summary 

  • It doesn't use light bulbs.
  • The wall light has built-in LEDs.
  • The one we purchased says the LEDs will last 15,000 hours, or generally 7 years, based upon having the light on about 3 hours a day. 
  • After 7 years is up, I'm honestly not sure what has to be done to replace the LEDs, but we rarely have the light on, so I'm sure it will last much longer.
  • It costs next to nothing in terms of electricity usage.
  • There are many designs to choose from.
  • You can get LED outdoor wall lights from multiple stores, including Amazon.
  • We purchased ours from Home Depot - I wanted to see it in person before purchasing.
  • And yes, it's bright!

Things to Consider Before Purchasing an LED Integrated Wall Light:
  • Check the size of the opening of your existing outdoor wall light. I purchased one from Amazon but had to return it because the base that mounts to the house didn't entirely cover the current opening.
  • Our base needed a minimum of 5 inches wide.
  • Do you want one that comes out further, or do you need one that's relatively flush to the wall? 
  • Ours needed to be fairly flush because it was beside a patio door, and we didn't want the taller people in our family worried about banging into it when turning right outside the patio door.
  • Check the distance out from the wall base to the light to ensure it meets your requirements.
  • Do you want the light to point upwards or downwards?
  • Where does the light shine from? The top? The bottom? The front? Or all of these locations. The one we selected radiates light in all these directions.
  • Most LED lights indicate the type of light it emits, from "warm tones" to "cool tones." We selected one that was more on the warm side of brightness.

As mentioned above, you can get these lights at multiple stores, but I did notice that after purchasing our light from Home Depot, there were less expensive choices on Amazon. Be sure to shop it before buying.

Here's a closer look at the one we selected - We love it; it's bright

  1. My son has an outdoor wall light similar to this. Very handy for the porch, patio, deck, etc. I'll soon be looking for an indoor version for over the kitchen sink in my new apartment.

  2. What a great light Barbara! We started using LED lightbulbs in our outdoor lights years ago and they made a big difference in the electric bill. Your light is awesome! I love the modern, sleek design. Very nice indeed.

    1. Sylvestermouse, we use LED lightbulbs indoor as well - or at least a good portion of our lights are LED inside - such a big money saver - these integrated lights are different in that these LEDs are imbedded in the light fixture itself somehow - lol, I'm not a techy guru on that part - but I did like the idea of no bulb necessary

  3. We, too, have converted a lot of our lighting to LEDs. The outdoor LED wall light you chose looks like it’s bright enough to light up a good-size area, and the slightly warmer-toned LEDs create a very attractive ambience.

  4. The outdoor LED wall light you have chosen looks great and I like the warm light and ambiance it creates. Also I think its a good feature that the light comes from the top, bottom and front. It is great you included the list of things we should consider before purchase. Our outdoor lights are all LED and we are very happy with them.

  5. Oh Barbara, that really is a nice light and works well from the pictures you posted. I think my hubby and I might want to do something like this for our balcony. We spend a lot of time enjoying the outdoors whenever we can, day or night. Thanks for this great review!
