Tube Skylights or Solar Skylight Alternatives?

If you can’t fit a traditional tube skylight where you want it, whilst maintaining the feel of natural light, Solar Light Whiz LED lights may be the answer you are looking for. Our solar skylights provide excellent, evenly distributed light, that can be used to mimic the actions of a regular tube skylight. 

Solar Light Whiz also offers the option to operate our system overnight as energy-saving solar lights.

Skylights vs Bushfire Rated Skylight Alternatives

Installing traditional tube-style skylights in bushfire rated areas can be highly complex and expensive. Solar Light Whiz are not your traditional roof skylights. Our lights have been designed to mimic the colour and behaviour of traditional skylights, and offer a wide range of shapes and sizes without the need to create a direct channel into your home. Plus, our skylight alternatives meet the requirements for Bushfire Alert Level ratings, meaning there is no additional requirements for their installation.

Solar Skylight Alternatives – Anywhere You Need Them

Our solar skylights are the smart modern alternative to traditional tube skylights. Solar lighting can be installed anywhere you want light in your home.

Do-it-yourself friendly installation

Solar Light Whiz was designed with ease-of-installation in mind; we are proudly DIY-friendly! Our system is generally made up of three major components: the solar panel, the LED light(s) and the wiring and leads to connect them. The entire system can be installed without the need of an electrician or contractor. You only require an electrician if you need to install a power socket for the optional night operations kit.

Highly adaptive and versatile

We offer a wide range of solar LED lights in different shapes and sizes. Our product range includes 10 distinct solar LED light fixtures in a range of rectangular, square, and circular sizes. Allowing for an abundance of choice to suit your lighting and aesthetic requirements.

Furthermore, Solar Light Whiz can be installed almost anywhere you want! Our solar LED lights are only 10mm deep, allowing you to install beneath joists, or on ground floors of multi-storey buildings. They can also be installed either flush with your ceiling, recessed into the ceiling cavity, or surface mounted. You could even install the light on your wall!

Accessories to suit your needs 

Additional components, such as night operation kits and dimmers easily tie into the standard wiring without complications. You can even install multiple lights with a single solar PV panel!

Night ops kit in operation

With the Solar Light Whiz night pack, you can switch the solar-powered system to operate on mains power, ensuring adequate lighting at all times, without the need for a second set of lights, which are unnecessary and costly. The night operations kit can also be used during the day to ‘top-up’ the solar power, and allow the lights to be used at full capacity, even during overcast conditions.

Single-channel or multi-channel dimmers are another install option that let you adjust the intensity of your lights to suit your needs, regardless of the time of day.

Our system is designed so that you can connect multiple solar lights to a single solar panel. So long as your solar LEDs don’t exceed the recommended wattage of your solar PV panel, you can install as many lights as you’d like. The system is scalable and can be upgraded if you wish to extend your solar LED lighting.

Generally, installing traditional skylights to get an even light distribution throughout the room is cost-prohibitive. With Solar Light Whiz, the difference between one large light or multiple smaller solar LED lights is minimal – but the benefits of good light distribution are significant.

This flexibility lets you customise your system to exactly match your need. You can install however many lights you need, wherever you need them. Allowing you to distribute the light better than a skylight would, and ensuring proper lighting throughout the entire space.

Solar Lighting in multi-storey homes and buildings

stairwell lights

In multi-storey homes, many areas are often overlooked for lighting and they don’t have access to natural light since they are pathways of travel: hallways, entrances, corridors and stairways. Yet it is often these areas that need lighting so that the path of travel is easily seen and navigated. Internal rooms without windows like toilets and laundries also frequently suffer from a lack of natural light. Installing solar lights with one or multiple solar skylights will make a huge difference to the feeling of these rooms for anybody entering your home.

Hallways and corridors are often surrounded by other rooms and rarely get access to natural light from windows like other rooms do, so they need proper ceiling lights. The same goes for most downstairs rooms in multi-storey homes

Many of our competitors’ solar lights offer only one light per panel. That means that in longer, narrower rooms you can only light part of the space. This provides you with poor, uneven lighting and means that you’ll have to install a second set of lights. This is neither cost-efficient nor energy-efficient. Solar Light Whiz, however, can install several lights to the one panel meaning that the areas requiring lighting can be lit evenly, making our lights a cost-efficient and energy-efficient option.

Solar Light Whiz is an ideal solution for almost any lighting situation, not just the difficult ones!
