These colorful, blinking, dancing points of light seem to lift everyone’s spirits and spread cheer.
Christmas lights have come a long way. It has constantly improved with technology and were made to be fire-proof, longer-lasting, and less prone to malfunctions. Nowadays, laser Christmas lights are are being set up in both homes and commercial establishments because of the advantages they offer.
Why Choose Laser Christmas Lights?
1. Better Quality Lights
Ordinary Christmas lights have bulbs which emit very weak lights. So most of the time, homeowners have to set up multiple strings in order to have the brightness that they want. With laser lights however, the diodes emit a much brighter light which can be seen fro afar. Basically, you can achieve the effect you want with fewer lights. Some types of laser lights have 100mW laser diodes with high-grade diffraction optics. This provdes bright yet very safe displays.
2. Remote Control Features
Laser lights can be adjusted and manipulated using a remote control. While regular Christmas lights also have this feature, the laser ones can be controlled from as much as 60 feet away. Here are some of the things that you can do:
- You can adjust the color selection, meaning you can disable a particular one or select a combination of color displays.
- You can have the lights flash on and off
- You can have the colors change at random
- You can have the lasers move and form different shapes
- You can also set the lights to turn on and off at selected times
3. Extended Lifetimes
A lot of people get disappointed when their Christmas lights die on them after only a couple of days. This is one clear advantage that Laser Christmas lights have – its extended lifespan. Majority of laser lights have electronic thermostats which allow the lights to adjust their output settings. This keeps the internal laser diodes at the ideal operating temperature of 77 degrees. Laser lights may cost more than regular lights but you can certainly use it for a longer period of time.
4. Vibrant Colors
Laser lights do look more vibrant and alive than ordinary string lights. They normally come in single colors of red, green, and blue or a combination of two or all three. Interestingly, pure white laser lights are more expensive and harder to come by.
5. Safer and Not a Fire Hazard
Every year, countless fires break out because of faulty Christmas lights. Some burst into flames or explode after being left on for too long. This is why authorities have advised residents to switch off their holiday lights before going to sleep. Laser lights on the other hand, are much safer and more stable. Most lasers are built with all-metal parts (no plastic parts means it will not melt) and the electric thermostat keeps the temperature stable.
These features are just some of the reasons why laser Christmas lights are considered the newest and hottest Christmas trends.
