The luminaires attach to the side of your house, usually mounted near a door, and are meant to act as a replacement for the traditional motion-activated welcome/security light.

The company is also pitching these lights as a security aid, while also making it easier to welcome people to your home.

The Lily spotlights will start at $279.99/€299 for a three pack, while the Calla pathway lighting is $129.99/€139.99.
