Hello, Patrick
Yes, led automation will be part of all our future lighting needs.
To answer your questions about the par38 floodlight. Yes, if you are going to use a led floodlight in an outside environment the fixture must be fully enclosed. Led lights do not do well in high moisture environments. Walmart’s Great Value BR30 (12watt) (90watt equivalent) led (PAR38) replacement works well with a motion sensor, photocell, and a timer. It retails around $10. It has a color temperature of warm to white. The BR38 has a lifespan of 23 years. Of course, the higher the lumens the more efficient the bulb. Consumer Reports gives it a very good reliability rating of 94. I hope this information clarifies the questions you posed. If you have any other questions please don’t hesitate to ask.
Thank you

As everything become more and more connected, this is my logical next step on the smart home I am looking for. I love the idea of being able to control the lighting of the entire house from my phone. I am especially interested in how these lights would work with my outdoor fixtures. Do you know if the outdoor PAR-38 (3000 lumens) would work well with motion sensor fixtures that I have installed in my driveway and back patio?
