Window Lights are wonderful way to greet visitors to your house at Christmas, and here Andy Taylor reviews Konstsmide's contemporary and traditional range of Candlesticks, Welcome Lights and Silhouettes.
As David Coton explains, extendable LED lights from Konstsmide represent the ultimate in flexible and reliable outdoor low voltage Christmas lighting.
Robustly constructed using heavyweight cabling and weatherproof push-in connectors. Different types of lighting within the system can be mixed and matched, this means you can include icicle lights in blues and whites that will really bring a shiver to the proceedings. Also a superb set of three stars will definitely set your display apart from the others in the neighbourhood.
The 24v low voltage version is suitable for indoors and outside that can be extended for up to 100 metres or 1040 lights. Very safe to use, with the starter set including a transformer, the Konstsmide 24V Low Voltage Extendable LED light system is the ideal choice for flexible indoor or outdoor lighting.
In addition to warm white, red or assorted coloured light strings on clear or black cable, there are shimmering curtains and nets of LEDs, icicles, cluster and crab lights. Even traditionally shaped coloured bulbs that contain intense LEDs.
With extendable lights, after plugging in your starter set you are only limited by your imagination with a fantastic choice of lights that, with the use of extensions and splitters, will wrap the house in multi-coloured LEDs.
These lights will certainly lengthen your creative horizons and increase the scope for exciting and attractive displays. It is a ingenuous system that belies its own simplicity, like many great innovations it will lead to dramatic results.
