At in-lite, our spot lights have always been high quality with some of the highest CRI on the market (this refers to the color quality of the light, you can read more about that here). However, we are always innovating and improving, so our newest spot lights are even better than they were before. Let me explain how!
For the most part, the internal specifications of these fixtures haven’t changed. So, if you’ve installed our SCOPES in the past and are looking to add new ones, they’ll blend into your outdoor space no problem. They’ll just look a little bit different on the outside.
Our Scopes now all have the same sleek, modern design. Whether you’re looking at the MINI SCOPE or the BIG SCOPE NARROW, they’ll look pretty much the same. Other than the MINI SCOPE, which is just a little bit smaller in profile, all the other spotlight fixtures have almost the same measurements.
Secondly, we’ve made it easier to adjust the direction of the light. Simply twist the knob on the side of the fixture to control the angle of your light and then tighten it back up when you’ve found the sweet spot. This way, you can control exactly where you want your light to shine. We recommend doing this at night so you can see where the light is going to hit - this is called Night Focusing.
Thirdly, we’ve given you the option to remove the ground stake and hard mount the fixtures! All you have to do is use the allen key that comes with fixture to unscrew the stake. You'll have to take off the L-bracket from the fixture itself, then unscrew the stake, then twist the L-bracket back onto the fixture. This just makes it easier to access the screw in the stake that's covered by the fixture.
Fourthly, the new design accommodates a SHIELD that can be placed on the fixture. This helps ‘shield’ the light source from your eye and eliminates any hotspots in the landscape. Plus, it makes the fixture look pretty sweet too. The SHIELD is sold separately. You'll want to use the SHIELD 1 for the MINI-SCOPE and the SHIELD 2 for all the SCOPE fixtures.
Additionally, our fixtures are now more energy efficient! Not to say they weren't energy efficient before, but you you now get more light output for the same amount of energy. This means it ultimately costs even less to power these fixtures.
And finally, our fixtures now come pre-assembled to save time on installation. Just pull it out of the box, plug it in, and adjust the light direction. It may seem like a small change, but we promise it makes a world of a difference - especially when you're installing a lot of lights on a big project! It's the little things that count, right?
