Lighting a greenhouse with an LED strip
A final original idea of using an LED strip is greenhouse lighting. The advantages of using LED lighting in a greenhouse are numerous:
- High durability and resistance to climatic conditions of LEDs, provided they are of good quality. A greenhouse can, in fact, go up to 45 or even 50 ° C in summer during heat waves and go down to -20 ° C during cold spells.
- The chromatographic variations LEDs make it possible to make growth forcing lights in order to grow your plants 24/24
- Low consumption and high efficiency, particularly interesting when used in growth forcing
However, it will be necessary to choose an LED strip that is protected at least in IP44 ie resistant to dust and splashes. Indeed, because in addition to the strong variations in temperature, a greenhouse is regularly watered and is often dusty.
In addition, in summer after watering, it can present a humidity level very important not far from saturation. LED strips and particularly electronic circuits must therefore be able to withstand these conditions.
