Outdoor lights are a complicated lot and not all outdoor lights are created equal. When selecting an outdoor light it is essential to pair it with its conditions, considering things like exposure, brightness and location characteristics. A great tool for understanding what different outdoor lights can achieve is the IP rating, or Ingress protection rating. This is a two digit number explaining how the light is protected from the ingress of solids and liquids. The first number indicates the level of protection from solid ingress, the second indicates the level of protection from liquid ingress.
