    I have some nice heavy duty brass(?) pathway landscaping lights. I'm not sure of the manufacturer as they were here when I purchased the home. They are 12v lights, long (about 16"), and very heavy. The lights still work very well but the problem I'm having is that the plastic is breaking on...

    Does this seem correct? I bought two different landscape lights. Both claim to be 10 watt devices. I connect each one to a transformer and measure the voltage at 12.92v ac. The meter I have only has a 2/20 ac amp switch and when I try to connect the meter is series with the device the light...

    Hello Everyone! I am looking to install landscape lighting (Low voltage) which will have a step down transformer. Most of the ones I saw have a plug that has to be connected to a GFCI outlet. I don't have any outlet nearby but there is a floodlight mounted on a junction box. Can I cut the...

    I'm wanting to find an low-voltage LED post lamp for the entrance to my driveway, that's fed by 12v landscape wiring. For the life of me I cannot find one anywhere. Does anyone know if such a thing exists? If not - why not? It almost seems as if they are illegal or something. If so - why...

    Hello, I have a set of landscape lights that are a combination of wall mounted lighting and lighting staked in the ground that are CAST MR-16 Bullet (CBL1CB) LIGHTS. The one bullet light in the ground only lights up when it rains heavily. Any other time it does not work. I have pulled it out...

    I have just bought a house with an existing 2-zone (front, back) 12V landscape lighting. Would love to replace the transformers with wifi capable ones that I can control with an app on my cell/tablet, preferably either on iOS or Android. Bonus points for a multizone (2- or 3-zone) transformer...

    I'm doing a low voltage lighting project for the pathway outside. I have no outdoor outlets at all, and the closest and available outlet is inside a bedroom on the opposite side of the wall. I need a transformer for the lights. I don't need a timer with it, as it will only be turned on when...
