What Is a LED Flood Light?

Floodlights have a broad beam that is very powerful. If you have ever been to a sports stadium but the light conditions were not favorable, then the floodlights most definitely have been turned on. In fact, it is mandatory for sports stadiums to have floor lights in order to ensure illumination when there’s no daylight.

The best features of LED Flood Lights are their brightness and wide coverage. Making them able to be used for accent, event or security lighting depending on what you need! However, with the market saturated in brands, it is important to pick the best floodlight for you. If you’re just looking to accent light the front of your home, a 500W LED Flood Light may be too much and a 50W LED Flood Light may be enough.

What Do You Need an LED Flood Light for?

Before looking at lumens and LED Flood Light’s specifications, it is important to figure out what you are using your floodlight for.

If you’re using it for security reasons maybe you will need a brighter wider beam coverage. Or if it is for accent lighting your garden or home, maybe you need a smaller less powerful beam. If it is going to be an investment for the whole year, an RGB Floodlight with some smart capabilities may be best.

  • Outdoor Security Lighting :

For security lighting, you’re going to need bright light, wide coverage and reactionary. A lot of floodlights can provide the brightness and the wide beam coverage, however, they’re not reactionary. The best solution for this would be to purchase a security light that has LED Flood Lights, however, it may not be as bright or as wide covering. The best solution in my eyes, if you are looking for the higher brightness and coverage, it would be to combine the LED Flood Light with a motion sensor.

  • Accent Lighting :

Accent lighting with floodlights can be difficult to get right. You’re going to need layers. Highlight the architectural features of your home, entrances, or archways, etc. For wall washing, a spread lens would be suggested as these disperse the beam out from the center spot and gives the light soft edges. When purchasing a spread lens, check the efficiency as it can vary between 50%-70%.

  • Even Lighting :

Even Lighting, like accent lighting, may need layers. Combining 10W RGB LED Flood Lights with 50W and 100W RGB Flood Lights will be the best bet for creating a great party atmosphere. Depending on whether it is an indoor or outdoor party, the wattage may vary. More lights and more power will be needed outside.


  • First, you need to understand what a floodlight is.
  • Second, what is the purpose of your floodlights.
  • Third, choose the wattage and lumen value according to the lighting effect you need from the floodlight.
