Traditional or Laser lights for Christmas?
At a glance, it’s obvious that the main advantage for laser lights is their fast and easy installation, not to mention the impressive effect you’re able to create in only a couple of minutes. Now that everyone wants laser lights for Christmas, the options are a lot more various and numerous, coming with incredible features and functions.
If you’re sitting on the fence about which way to go (traditional or laser), here’s one tip that is going to help you: it’s all about the vibe you’re aiming for. You can even go with both options, but it’s better to due diligence about the laser lights so that you can choose right.
What are the main benefits when using laser lights?
There are many things that the laser lights bring to the table so let’s take a closer look at the most important aspects:
The area coverage
No matter what they say, the traditional Christmas lights have a classic appearance, but it’s going to take you a lot of money and time to cover a wide area with them. Not only that you’re going to have to make sure that every single light strand is linked to another, but you also pay attention to the power outlets. It may take you a while, but it’s going to worth every single minute you spend for installing the lights.
Most laser lights out there are designed to cover impressively large ranges and you can get astonishing results on a big area without installing hundreds of traditional lightbulbs. In addition, you’re not going to spend hours for installation, but you’re going to obtain amazing effects.
For instance, the 1byone Christmas Outdoor Laser Light Projector with Wireless Remote Controller is able to cover up to 2,100 sq.ft. from a distance of 25ft. it’s a great option for your Christmas and it’s safe, easy to use and really affordable. You can set it on motion, flashing or simply stationary. It comes with built-in timer function so it’s going to turn off automatically after 6H and turn on back again after 18H. you may also use the remote control for setting the time. On top of everything else, it’s weather resistance and has an IP65 rating for the light casing and IP44 for the power adapter.
Not only the laser lights are able to require a little of your time for installation, but they also save you a buck too. If you’re planning to cover a big area with some traditional lights, you may find yourself with an empty wallet at the end of it all. Let’s not to mention that you always need to replace a bulb or two on a traditional light string.
Even if the price range is really wide, you can find Christmas laser lights for $20. As with everything else, the more you pay, the more you can expect in terms of features or performances.
It may sound incredible, but you’re going to pay less than $20 for the Christmas Lights Projector, Laser Lights Star Night Shower with RF Remote Controller Waterproof LED Projector. Even if the price may seal the deal for many, the laser projector is quite a nice surprise for the money. It’s lightweight, comes with a metal shell and effective heat dissipation.

As for the Motion Pattern Firefly 3 models in 1 Continuous 18 Patterns LEDMALL RGB Outdoor Laser Garden and Christmas Lights with RF remote control, it sits on the other end of the price range and you’re going to pay more than $100 for it. The laser decorative projector offers 3 themes and provides 18moving holiday patterns to choose from. You get speed control options, color options and you may set the timer as well.

No more cords to detangle
If you’re going to use Christmas laser lights, you’re definitely going to eliminate the tangled strings of lights that you have to deal with in the case of traditional Christmas lights. We all know that putting back nicely and organized the light strings for the storage almost never happens. And we all lose so much time when trying to detangle them for hanging.
One of the best parts about the laser lights is the easy installation. Many models include a stake mounting system. you only need to plug it in (or put the battery in), turn it on and…enjoy the show. No more climbing up the ladder, stringing the lights all the way up on the roof or untangling the cords for hours.
A very good example on this one is the LIFU Christmas Lights Projector – 2018 Upgrade Version 16 Patterns LED Projector. You can simply stick it in the ground on a stake or mount it on its supplied round plate (for the indoor use).

No, no more planning required
We all like the programmed Christmas light shows that are happening in our neighborhood. However, not everyone has the money or the energy to spend for developing the impressive light shows. You’re also going to have to learn some basics on timers, programmers and software and not all of us are really interested about it.
Many lasers light projectors out there are coming with pre-programmed shows so you’re not going to have to do anything but the installation per se. most of the laser light projectors come with a remote control so you may do all the setting you need from the comfort of your home. As for the shows, the range is impressive and you can go with simple modes or step up your game with something more sophisticated.

It’s made with aluminum waterproof and has an IP65 waterproof body. The power cord is 9ft long and works from -40F to 1040F.
Can you get creative when using laser lights?
We can’t really know for sure why red and green lights are still ruling the world of Christmas lights, every single year. Setting up the laser lights is a breeze, but the easy installation isn’t the most important aspect (not for us, anyway). The fact that you can get a fresh and impressive appearance for your garden this Christmas may be the selling point for many.
Simply installing the laser lights may not be enough and you can use your imagination when installing them as well. Here are some tips to try this year:
Let your house shine!
You should try covering your house with some beautiful red and green stars (this doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try some other colors too). This is one part where traditional lights are never going to be able to compete with. You simply need to plug the laser in and point it at your house.
Put your trust and faith into one of the most popular laser lights out there. The Star Shower as Seen on TV Static Laser Lights Star Projector is able to cover more than 600sq.ft. of bright and amazing star light. The laser projector is weather resistant and helps you create a nice festive look around your house in only a couple of minutes. It’s safe to use and gives you the chance to enjoy a nice show of green and red or combination of stars.
One rule of thumb to remember is that it’s better that you aim a specific area and to move light as close as possible to the location you need.
Light up the plants and the trees!
Truth be told, the Christmas lights don’t look bad at all in the trees or bushes around the house. this doesn’t mean you cannot use the laser lights for the same (or even better) effect. You should set the laser on the ground and aim the beams up into the branches. The tree is going to look like it’s glowing with millions of shiny stars. The depth of the branches and the leaves are going to make each laser beam sparkle so nicely. You can get a better effect when using a moving laser.

Never undermine their power!
DJs have been using the laser lights for years now and the days when you could only see the laser projects in clubs are all gone. The Christmas laser lights are for everyone and everyone is enjoying their powers.
The only thing to worry about when using the laser lights is where you place them and how you aim them. For instance, you should never place them straight as eye level as you may be hurting someone’s eyesight like this. You should always go above head-level, mounting them on a stand, tree or even on some part of your house.
