As we said before: in-lite is a popular brand. But how does in-lite differ from other garden lighting brands? It is a high-quality brand and provides beautiful light in your garden that you can enjoy for years. It is easy to use as well. We have listed the advantages for you:

✔ Plug & Play. You connect to the low-voltage main cable (12V) in literally no time at all with the special Easy-Lock system. After this the fixtures can be controlled from one place, or switch on and off automatically if desired. You roll out the cable from your transformer, connect a fixture and you're done. The cable can end anywhere, the cables do not have to form a closed system. You lay the cables directly under the paving or cover them in the borders with just a little bit of earth.

✔ Safe in use thanks to 12 Volt low voltage: From the transformer, which is connected to the 230 Volt mains, there is only a low-voltage cable to which all fixtures are connected. This makes the system absolutely safe, even if you damage the cable. A reassuring thought, especially with playing children or digging pets nearby.

There are also various in-lite accessories available to make your life easier or to get a slightly different light image.

In-lite transformers

Which transformer you need depends on the size of your garden. There are three different 'transformers' available from in-lite.
