We first found out about outdoor laser lights when some of the houses in our development used them as holiday decorations for this past Christmas. We’re not particularly handy, so the idea of festive, attractive outdoor lighting without having to actually string lights seemed like a fantastic idea. With the FOCUSAM Outdoor Laser Lights, we can now bring that idea to reality for ourselves.
In the package you get the green and red dual laser light unit, a ground stake, an indoor base, and a user manual. Once plugged in and focused where you’d like, the quality of the LED lighting is excellent, randomly displaying solid and flashing green and red lights, i.e., lots of dots. This functions kind of like a laser pointer though, so you’ll have to be careful where you point it, because this can cause issues with aircraft and of course, people’s eyes.
While this obviously can be used indoors – and comes with a base expressly for that purpose – presumably, like me, you’ll want this primarily for outdoor use. While the unit itself is rated IP64 waterproof, the power supply is not, so you’ll want to be sure that’s covered when you presumably plug it into an extension cord since you probably won’t have a convenient outlet, wall, and projection distance combination when using it; the attached AC adapter is extremely short.
There’s no power switch. Once it’s on, it’s on. There’s also no timer, so you’ll want to get one of those separately so you can turn it off automatically much like other light up decorations.
While the FOCUSAM Outdoor Laser Lights is far from perfect, they do put on an incredibly impressive light show. And it sure beats stringing lights.
Thanks to FOCUSAM for the review unit.
