Oh wow. That's really cool. I don't understand why they can't make lighting easy.

Ya I made mistakes not researching into lights! Bought a 2 bulb then the orbit led, found them to be to weak for what I wanted to do! Now I have the rapidled par 38 and the moonlights on a separate timer to keep it lite at night
