  • Allowing users to install fewer solar panels to power their lighting

Additional benefits include:

  • Much better optical distribution with secondary lensing
  • Ability to control lighting digitally through DMX
  • Use of ambient light sensing on select products to automatically dim lights when adequate ambient light is available
