(Residence - Boca Raton, Florida)

Deck and pathway lights are meant to ensure the safety of you and others who are walking on or near paths on your property. These lights will brighten your path, allowing you to see directly in front of you to avoid slips and falls, and see down the path towards your final destination. These lights also accentuate your pathways and decks, bringing out their best features.

How Do Deck & Pathway Boat Dock Lights Work?

Deck and pathway boat dock light fixtures are installed on or near a walkway. These lights turn on either when they detect visibility is limited through sensors, through a switch, or via a timer.

Your pathway lights should:

  • Be durable to withstand being stepped on and harsh weather conditions
  • Be small and placed out of the walkway
  • Point downward towards the path
  • Be connected to a local power source unless solar-powered
