Outdoor lighting for your home not only creates a nighttime landscape but it also can make your home more secure and safe. SME Inc of Seattle brings over 40 years of electrical contracting expertise to every project. We can help you design an outdoor lighting landscape for your home or we can install one that has already been designed.

Each area has its own consideration when it comes to outdoor lighting and each can be accommodated by using different types and varieties of outdoor lighting.

  • Pathway/safety lighting are used along walkways, driveways and along informal paths leading from one area to another
  • Up–lighting, like spot or flood lights highlight landscape focal points like trees, architectural features or signs
  • Down–lighting also uses spot of flood lights and can be used to mimic natural light or provide security
  • Silhouette lighting can be used to create a shadow of landscape plants or to highlight an art object
  • Specialty lighting can be anything from underwater lighting to strings of lights on a gazebo

SME Inc. will be able to install the system and add circuits and switches where needed. We will also install GFCI outlets as needed. Transformer and wire size will be calculated and chosen based on number and type of fixtures.

The entire system will be laid out and tested before burying the wiring. Transformers will be placed out of reach of small animals and children for safety. Once the system is checked, wiring and fixtures will be buried or inserted in the ground, installed on the home and wiring will be secured for overhead and landscaped plants.

Switching outdoor lighting on or off will be a matter of how much control you want over your landscapes outdoor lighting. Some areas can be activated by sensors or timers others by motion and still others by switches inside the home.

Transform your landscape by installing an outdoor lighting system. Create visual interest while at the same time promoting security and safety. SME Inc. is a licensed, bonded and insured company with experienced electricians, designers and staff. Please call or email us for all of your electrical needs. No job is too small or too large. Let us help you make your outdoor lighting project a reality.
