As LED lighting becomes more commonplace, laws and regulations on low voltage installations are being tightened in order to protect homes and businesses.
Because they generally run at a low voltage, LEDs are often considered a much safer option compared to halogen and incandescent lighting, as there is generally a lower risk of electric shocks.

That is why it is important to install LED lights correctly. Below, I will discuss the five things you will need to bear in mind when shopping for, and installing, low voltage LED lights.
