Frequently Asked Questions
If you’re familiar with basic wiring, then the Redilight system is relatively easy to install. You’ll need to be able to access the roof and roof cavity to complete installation.
3000K and 5000K refers to the color temperature of the light. With 3000K being more of a soft white with a warmer color range and 5000K being a more of a daylight with a whiter color range.
Redilight installation has a minimum impact on roof structure. The solar panel needs to be attached to the roof with only a few easily sealable screw penetrations. The wire needs to pass through a small hole that can be located under a roof shingle/tile and sealed.
Yes, an optional Day/Night kit can be installed that switches from solar power to house power so the lights can be used at night. Without this it works only during
daylight times similar to a skylight.
Redilight LEDs have a lifespan of over 50,000 hours
We highly recommend you hire an installer from our network of dealers to ensure the highest quality installation. However, it is not required. A Redilight can be
installed by anyone who considers themselves handy.
Since the Redlight system relies on a solar panel for energy, the light reacts to the sun’s intensity much like a skylight. As the sun rises, the light intensifies. As the sun sets, the intensity decreases. The light intensity will also be lower during cloudy conditions. The system will be off until enough light to power it is available, unless a Day/Night Switch is added to supplement it from house power.
Redilights demonstrate color very well. The SMD LEDs installed in Redilights have a color rendering index of over 82 out of 100.

Yes, if an optional driver equipped with a remote is installed, the lights will be dimmable and able to be turned on and off.
Many Redilight customers initially purchase a larger sized solar panel which allows them to add to their system later. With a larger panel installed, installation of additional Redilights is simple.
The 6 watt Skyfixture™ can only be installed in lots of 2 or 4 lights. This is due to the light driver being set at 12 watts or 24 watts. You can’t install 1 or 3 lights as you will overdrive the lights and void the warranty.
