Beacon Lighting’s Range
LED lighting systems have come a long way since the early 2000s. Companies like Beacon Lighting offer many sustainable options to keep your home inviting, and illuminated. With such advances in technology, the Australian market for these high performing, energy-efficient lighting solutions has also expanded greatly over the past few years. Solar Light Whiz takes the best elements of ceiling-based LED lighting and traditional skylights to bring you a renewable, free-to-use option to light your living spaces.
Conventional alternatives to the Solar Light Whiz can range from a humble, single light fixture to entire feature lighting systems. Beacon’s flush mount lighting range provides a number of LED lighting fixtures that can be fitted to your ceiling, providing bright light to last you several years.
Solar Light Whiz does the same, but also provides a solution to the issue of skylights—the natural way to shaft light from the outside into your home. Solar Light Whiz is a noninvasive way to bring naturally-dimming lighting into your home!

Solar LED Lighting in Your Home
In 2009, traditional incandescent lighting was phased out due to General Lighting Service lamps wasting enormous amounts of energy. With the shift towards energy-efficient lighting solutions, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) and Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) became increasingly popular due to their vastly superior lifespans. Where CFL lighting provides strong neutral white lighting in most cases, their often-bulky size can restrict installation in some scenarios.
LED Lighting provided a powerful, and energy-efficient solution to lighting. LED panels are generally compact and produce a large lumen count for nearly a sixth of the old-style incandescent bulbs power consumption. While per bulb an LED can be pricier, they are also capable of lasting up to twenty years.
Beacon Lighting’s range offers a great range of ceiling lights. Solar Light Whiz goes a step further, with the capacity to operate completely on renewable energy, and the option to add additional lights later to an existing system. In fact, a single solar panel can power up to ten different lights!
Solar-powered LED lights are not particularly invasive to install, which makes it an attractive option for those wanting to install new lighting. Though LED doesn’t use a large amount of energy compared to other forms of lights, such as incandescent, halogen and CFL, there is still room to improve!
Solar Light Whiz harnesses solar energy throughout the day in any weather conditions in order to illuminate your home. Much in the same way you would if you installed a conventional skylight, but without the difficult and rather invasive installation. A process that involves cutting a large hole in your roof and installing large diameter ducting to channel the light into your home!
Given the lifespan of modern LED systems, the Solar Light Whiz system is more than capable of making a return on your power bills. As a solar-powered ceiling light, the Solar Light Whiz imitates natural light, recreating the homely feeling of the sun’s light shining into your home.
Skylights and You
A traditional roof skylight can be extremely expensive to install, requiring a shaft (or hole) to bring daylight from the sun down through a roof cavity, into the room below. While this does allow for natural, daytime light in your home, there can be significant risks associated with such a feature.
Furthermore, many modern buildings may be unable to fit a skylight. E.g. apartments, multiple storied homes, or simply a roofing structure that doesn’t allow for a light shaft to be installed in the desired location. Solar Light Whiz simulates the light of the sun at all times of the day and can be installed practically anywhere in your home. Solar Light Whiz also features the ability to operate as a normal LED light panel at night.
Solar Light Whiz offers far more installation flexibility compared to a conventional skylight, and also prevents the significant heat gains and losses associated with such an invasive structure
Our pricing is also highly competitive to skylights. As highlighted before, installing skylights is a significant commitment and alteration to your home’s structure, and as a result, can be very costly. Especially if you are considering installing multiple skylights. With Solar Light Whiz, installation is noninvasive (requiring a roof penetration of just a few millimetres) and is therefore considerably cheaper.
Our units are also affordably priced when comparing with Beacon Lighting’s LED lighting units. Get in contact with us by sending us a quick enquiry to find out more about our range and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
