Best Decision Ever!
Reviewed in the United States on May 26, 2019
My husband and I are not very confident in our DIY skills but we were quoted THOUSANDS of dollars to have landscape lighting installed and we were really disappointed that the cost was prohibitive for us. So, we started researching whether we could do it ourselves and, I found the Meikee lights as a VERY reasonable starting point. We then watched many YouTube videos about DIY low voltage landscape lighting and felt like yep, we can do this. So, we did. The Meikee 7w spotlights are perfect for a subtle and warm lighting solution. They are bright enough to cast the shadows we’re love and uplight all the right spots. You DO have to buy the low voltage wire and transformer and connectors separately but, we went to Lowe’s and talked with them and bought a 200w transformer (with dusk to dawn automatic timer) for about $70.00 and 200 feet of 14 gauge low voltage wire. The wire was the most expensive part...100 feet is about $45.00 but, based on our research, 14 gauge was the best fit since the lights furthest from the transformer are between 50-75 feet away. Be sure to research which gauge wire is best for your application so you don’t lose any wattage or lumens near the furthest parts of your yard. It took us about 3 hours to install these lights and trust me, if we can do it, anyone can.
Thank you for making such a great product, Meikee! We’re now thinking about a little project in our back yard so, we’ll be back!
