We all love twinkling Christmas lights. What we don’t love is untangling miles of lights. It doesn’t seem to matter how neatly they were put away the last time, the cables inevitably end up tangled and tied. Unravelling them can be very frustrating. Laser lights, however, don’t have this problem. All you need for a laser projector is to mount it on a stake or a wall mount, or stand it on a flat surface. And that’s it. Here are 5 other reasons why a Christmas light projector will save you time, money and frustration.
- An issue with traditional lights is that you have to scale ladders or trees to get the lights high enough, and that can be too much of a hassle, especially in winter time. In contrast, laser lights don’t need any climbing or scaling, just some good angling. They are designed to keep a low profile, while creating a far reaching effect.
- String lights need support, they can’t stand by themselves. Unfortunately this support is usually in the form of nails and screws. While they might be imperceptible by night and hidden the blaze of lights, they stick out during the day, and don’t add anything to the aesthetics of the house. Christmas light projectors, on the other hand, don’t need any nails or screws. They can just be laid flat on a surface or put on a stand. There is no drilling or hammering.
- Who enjoys cleaning up after the festivities are done? No one. Quite apart from the fact that the above mentioned nails and screws mar your walls, packing up the lights is a pretty big hassle due to the cables. Christmas light projectors can be packed up like pegs in holes in the original packaging, making for efficient storage.
- If you live in cold climate, this point is more relevant to you. Do you really want to spend time outside in the winter? Putting up traditional lights will require you to do just that for extended periods of time. Laser lights are ready by the time it will take you to plug in and point. Furthermore, many models feature remote controls, so you don’t even have to go outside after the first set up, and can make any adjustments to your Christmas light projector from the comfort of your warm home.
- Now we come to the dreaded light bulbs. Every year you are likely to find a few dead light bulbs, and replacing them is a chore. You can choose to ignore them, but you can’t do that every year. Laser lights have no such problems. They will work from anywhere between 5000 to 10,000 hours.
If all of the reasons we recounted didn’t impress you, then the biggest advantage Christmas light projectors have over traditional lights lies in the consumption of power. Laser projections use only a fraction of the power traditional light bulbs do, and are more cost effective in the long run.
