We often have customers ask us “What sets your permanent lighting apart?” and “Why is your permanent lighting better than others’?”
First of all, it’s great to hear that our customers are asking the right questions to get important information prior to purchasing permanent lights. When it comes to purchasing permanent lighting for your home, it’s very important to do your research. (We actually created a guide to getting permanent trim lights in Edmonton, if you’d like to give it a read.)
We are going to make doing that research much easier. In today’s blog post, we’ll be highlighting some relevant differences between our permanent lighting and our competitors’ permanent lighting. Let’s jump into it right away!
1. Energy Efficiency
Here at Five Star Holiday Decor, we care about energy efficiency and reducing our ecological footprint. This is why we chose to provide a permanent lighting product that is significantly more energy efficient than that of our competitors.
While our competitors use up to 1 Watt per bulb, we only use 0.3 Watts per bulb, reducing the energy consumption significantly.
Our permanent lights are a much better choice for you if you’re interested in getting closer to net zero energy consumption and being more environmentally friendly in general. We understand that our clients are very conscientious about the energy that they use at their homes which is why we provide an environmentally friendly permanent lighting solution.
2. Single-Point Lights
When we install permanent lighting for our valued clients, we want it to provide a beautiful, classic look at night while blending in perfectly during the daytime. Our permanent lighting uses single-point lights that shine in a one-point pattern.
The bulbs are also smaller than our competitors’ lights, meaning that they are less visible during the day, while still being brilliant at night. Some of our competitors also use three-point lights which shine in a clover-like pattern, rather than maintaining the classic single-point light look.
3. Maintenance of Lights in the Case of Failure
Another factor that sets us apart significantly from our competitors is what happens if a single bulb goes out on your lighting.
First of all, bulbs going out on our permanent lighting is very rare. Additionally, if there are any issues whatsoever, we provide a 2 year installation warranty as well as a 3 year product warranty and will happily fix any issues for you as soon as we are able.
That being said, if a bulb does go out on the permanent lighting we provide, the rest of the lights will not be affected. The wired connection for our lights ensures that if one bulb goes out, only one bulb goes out.
Our competitors’ lights, on the other hand, are wired in a different manner and reliant on Bluetooth. This means that if one bulb goes out, the entire line of lighting will also go out.
Yes, ideally, no bulbs would ever go out on your permanent lighting, however, if one does, it’s better that it is just that one and not the entirety of your lighting.
4. Better Mobile App
Although our competitors also provide mobile app-controlled lighting, our mobile app stands out in contrast with theirs.
First of all, our app is more user-friendly and has an interface that is easy to navigate. In terms of colour, pattern, and scheduling customizations, we offer more control as well as more options.
Our mobile app allows you to schedule your lights to turn on and off with the sunset and sunrise in your specific area, choose from over 16 million different colour and pattern options, and control your lights from literally anywhere in the world.

5. No Bluetooth Interference
Speaking of Bluetooth connectivity, let’s talk about safety. The safety and security of our clients’ homes is something that is very important to us here at Five Star Holiday Decor. Not only do our permanent lights offer a higher level of safety for your property, but they also won’t interfere with other security systems.
Our permanent lighting is not reliant on Bluetooth at all. Instead, we wire it end to end to ensure that it will not interfere with any other Bluetooth-reliant systems in your home, such as your security system.
Comparatively, our competitors’ lights can create interference issues with home security systems given their Bluetooth-reliance, causing security issues for homeowners.
If the safety and security of your home is a high priority, our permanent lighting system is definitely the right choice for you.
6. Higher Waterproof & Safety Rating
Because permanent lights are going to be on your house permanently, it’s essential that they can handle any elements that they are exposed to and any home maintenance as well.
Our permanent lights are rated IP68, which is actually the same rating that hot tubs have. Our lights, therefore, can handle higher water pressure for a longer period of time. This means that you won’t run into any issues with any pressure washing or cleaning, large amounts of precipitation, or freezing cold Canadian winters.
In short, our permanent lighting is truly built to last and endure.
In comparison, our competitors’ lights are typically rated to IP67 and aren’t able to handle the same level of water or pressure.
7. Canadian-Designed & -Manufactured Lights
The permanent lighting that we provide is both designed and manufactured right here in Canada. Celebright, our lighting supplier, is family owned and operated in Ottawa, Ontario. Celebright is very involved in charity work within their community and is proud to be a Canadian company.
We are proud to offer a permanent lighting product that is designed and manufactured here in Canada. This allows us to support a local Canadian company while resting assured that they understand the harshness of our Canadian winters and provide a product that can confidently take on the cold and snow.
Celebright’s focus on charity work and community investments aligns very well with our own commitment to community investments and monthly Charity Day donation. We are honored to work with a company whose core values align with ours.
So there you have it: a comprehensive comparison of our permanent lighting and the permanent lighting that our competitors offer.
