To prevent insect mortality caused by blue and white LED light outdoors, luminaires with gold light can make your garden shine anyway. Even at a colour temperature of 2200 K, insects are hardly attracted to the artificial light source. Therefore, insect-friendly luminaires with 2200 K or less are much gentler on insects - and also ensure safety and a cosy atmosphere in your outdoor area.
Active protection of insects through conscious use of light colour
The colder, more intense and more widely diffused the outdoor lighting, the more insects are attracted to the light and die. To prevent this and make an active contribution to insect protection, you can use outdoor luminaires with 1500-2200 K in your garden. This colour temperature is hardly visible to insects, which means they are less attracted to the light source.
Three different options for insect-friendly outdoor lighting
Option no. 1
Cosy and insect-friendly evening light with Tunable Warm function
Luminaires equipped with the tunable-warm function allow you to freely adjust the light colour and brightness of your luminaires for permanent operation. When darkness falls, for example, the luminaires switch on with 20% brightness and a colour temperature of 2200 K. With the integrated motion detector, the light switches to 100% brightness and a light colour of 3000 K when needed. You can also use the Tunable Warm function without the gateway by controlling your luminaires with the Paulmann Gent remote control, Smarthome apps or voice control such as Amazon Echo (Alexa).
Option no. 2
Automatic orientation light in the warm white and golden light range
The perfect combination of insect protection and security! After dark, the outdoor lights switch on with a basic setting of 20% brightness and a light colour of 2200 K. To ensure that the way to the house or through the garden does not become a tripping hazard, the luminaires react to movement thanks to the integrated motion detector and adjust the brightness to 100% and the colour temperature to 3000 K. After 30 seconds, the luminaires automatically return to their default settings.
Option no. 3
Active protection from insects & a pleasant lighting atmosphere around the house
The golden light colour of the insect-friendly outdoor luminaires creates a cosy candlelight-like atmosphere in your garden or on your balcony. They shine with a light colour of 2200 K and thus enable you to protect yourself from insects. Some of the lights are also equipped with a motion detector.
