LED Outdoor String Lights
After some trial and error, we finally found these heavy-duty LED outdoor string lights that don't cost a fortune in electricity to run. We pair them with a Z-Wave outdoor switch which allows us to control them from anywhere through our SmartThings hub.
These have survived many mountain storms with no problems, and the hooks on top make it easy to hang them with heavy-duty wire for extra support over long spans.
We use these over decks and patios, as well as over our parking areas to keep them well lit when guests arrive after dark.
