Outdoor emergency lights have undergone major changes in recent decades with the development of LED lighting systems. They have many plus points to get their credit – it’s cost effective, energy saving, smaller, brighter, cooler, and last longer. LEDs are also a more environmentally-friendly alternative to non-rechargeable battery solutions. They are also very adaptable, making them suitable in many applications compared to conventional lighting sources. Emergency lights are used when the normal power supply fails or is not available. The use of emergency lights occurs during power failures, as well as natural disasters such as earthquakes, fires, floods and other disasters, where emergency lighting is used not only for ordinary lighting needs but also to assist rescue activities.
LED is a light-emitting diode that lights up when the voltage is applied. LEDs run longer one less power than conventional sources of light such as incandescent lights because they produce less heat and therefore do not wear out easily. They also use only a fraction of the power used by conventional light sources. Outdoor emergency lights have different uses. They can be used as warning lights and can also illuminate areas for emergency operations or rescue missions. For example, if a building is evacuated, the exit should be well lit to facilitate evacuation, and its surroundings should also be illuminated. The LED light is not heated and easy to handle.
In case of vehicle breaking down at night, outdoor emergency lights are quite practical. They can be placed on the dashboard or at the rear of the vehicle as a warning light if used in strobe mode. The LED tube can also be easily held by hand to replace a flat tire or to check hard to reach the area, such as the bottom of the vehicle. LED emergency lights also have other uses. Power failure is a major inconvenience at home or office. Bright LED lights illuminate the room effectively and can be used in kitchens, study areas, garages and other parts of the house. They make good reading lamps. LED lights can also be used in offices to provide temporary lighting.
