Review of the best according to the editorial board. On the selection criteria. This material is subjective and does not constitute advertising and does not serve as a purchase guide. Before buying, you need to consult with a specialist.

Street floodlights are widely used to illuminate courtyards, car parks, sidewalks and advertising signs. There are architectural devices for light decoration of building structures at night. Landscaping models are used to supply lighting to squares, parks and other green areas. Our experts figured out how to choose a specific spotlight for a specific task. Get practical tips and a list of the best products with reviews.

How to choose a street spotlight

Here are the main parameters to look out for when choosing a floodlight for outdoor use:

  1. Location. The lighting device can be portable or stationary. The former are practical for temporarily supplying lighting to a place of rest or work in the evening. They have a handle for easy transport. The latter are attached to a wall or ceiling in order to constantly supply light to a specific place.
  2. Lamp type. The light source in the spotlight can be a halogen lamp, which produces a dense white light stream and is suitable for high-quality illumination of the working area. The xenon lamp shines “softer” and further. Its lifespan is longer since there is no filament inside. LED bulbs consume less energy and have the longest life.
  3. Brightness. The characteristic is measured in lumens and can be from 800 to 20,000 lumens. The higher the value, the more light the device emits.
  4. Enclosure protection level. It is designated as IPxx and can mean protection from dust, rain, water jets. The metal case will withstand more wind and hail loads than the plastic one.
  5. Power. The indicator varies from 8 to 500 W and affects the strength of light radiation, as well as electricity consumption.
  6. Power connection method. The floodlights are connected to a 220 V network directly or to 12 V through an adapter. There are solar-powered models that don't require outdoor wiring.
  7. Colour temperature. Light emission can be in the temperature range of 1200-6500 K. The lower the value, the more yellow the light will be. If the number is high, then the lighting will be whiter or even bluer.
  8. Resource. Sometimes manufacturers indicate lamp life between 15,000 and 50,000 hours. For example, in the maximum version, if you turn on the spotlight on the street for 12 hours every day, it will last about 11 years.
  9. Color rendering. The characteristic affects the naturalness of the display of colors and is measured in Ra. Natural color rendition is important for work, so choose floodlights with an indicator of 80 Ra.
  10. Lighting type. The angle of light distribution can be point or diffuse. The first is useful for delivering narrow-beam light to an architectural object or work area. The second option is optimal for general lighting of the yard or other wide area on the street.
  11. Working temperature range. Some projectors are designed to operate up to -20 degrees, while others have a take-off range of -45 … + 50 ° C.

Philips BVP74 LED90 / NW 100W

The Philips company offers a floodlight for outdoor use with dimensions of 19x35x5.3 cm, which is endowed with six rows of luminous strips with a total of 26 LED elements. The equipment emits a luminous flux with a color temperature of 4000 K and a brightness of 9500 lumens.

In the reviews, users are pleased with the “soft” light and high-quality assembly, as well as the ability to adjust the turning stiffness without using keys.

In our opinion, this is the best weight-wise floodlight among the 100W devices. If other similar models weigh up to 6 kg, then this lamp has a mass of 2.3 kg.

  • telescopic bar with three warehouses;

In the reviews, buyers praise the design of the unit for the ability to disassemble and repair, for example, in the event of a diode bridge breakdown.

We considered this floodlight the best in terms of the ratio of power and illuminated area. With a consumption of 20 W, the equipment is capable of illuminating an outdoor courtyard up to 30 m². This effect was achieved thanks to a conical reflector that scatters light rays. This is the best option for protecting the territory of enterprises, where it is required that the lamps burn all night to ensure visibility from cameras.
