Below is what the LED recessed fixture looks like during the day (mind you the light will not be on during the day due to the automatic timer). Its small and the best thing about it is the light pivots in its housing so the angle of light in or out from the home can be adjusted to preference.

Below is a actual picture of the LED fixture and housing so it can be installed like a pot light / recessed. Most of our clients really like the warm white however we have done some landscape fixtures using the cool LEDs to really show the true color of what they wanted highlighted.

Below is the Intermatic DT620CL timer. It will allow the system to operate automatically and will adjust each day for the sunrise and sunset times so the lights are always coming on at the right time. It has a battery backup so if the power goes out it will not loose its programming.

  1. One thing you will want to take into consideration is that if you're planning on adding an exterior cornice, you are going to lose anywhere from 4-5" of your soffit. This will make your soffit lighting appear off-center, or may even partially cover it.

    And it's not easy to fix.

  2. You are right in saying that. This is why communication between the client and contractor is vital to a successful project. If someone was to be installing a moulding under their soffit then this may have to be taken into consideration. Our lights are about 8 inches from the wall and this is very important to give the right amount of wall wash when dealing with the front of the home. The sides and back which are often more functionable lighting for safety, entertaining or security. There is flexibility in the positioning of these lights. Thanks for the comment!

  3. Hi David, I am not sure that they can be puchased in your area. These lights are unique in the market place due to there quality, intensity and design flexibility. They are Canadian made. I will email you within the next couple of days. Thanks Darren

  4. I live in Alabama and these lights seem to meet the criteria for soffit lights. Ive been searching for easy to install, low amperage, bright lights.
    Where or how can I purchase these in my area?

  5. These lights are awsome! Low voltage, easy installation, and look great! do they install well in vinyl soffit? Can they be hard wired into low voltage transformer?

  6. Can the wire be run through the attic. A fireplace prevents me from staying completely in the soffit area.

  7. I am thinking whether I will do it with my builder or not. If I chose not can I have it install later. Also do I need to have atleast capped electrical outside on seperate switch to have light install future or all connectivity can be done later?

  8. Hi Athar, Its much easier to run the wires now during construction. As long as the wires are ran to the location of each desired light and the hole is drilled in the soffit then the lights can be hooked up later. We usually run the end of our wire (main feed) into a garage or utility room. We connect to our power panel and plug into a normal indoor plug. The system will run on a timer so no need for a switch. Thanks

  9. Darren, living in Canadian winters, can the cold affect the LED lights? AS well, if these lights are installed in an insulated ceiling (atick), is the housing safe enough to be installed within blown insulaltion or do they need to be protected?


  10. Hi Mike, they are rated for indoor and outdoor and can handle low temperatures no problem. When installing in a ceiling there needs to be a small box to prevent insulation contact. Thanks for checking our blog out!
