Hi, The high voltage outside lighting along the driveway of my house
has not worked in years. I want to replace them with low voltage
ones. I found several lights I liked but I have a 'lamp post' at the
end of my driveway and would like to replace that as well.
Unfortunately every post fixture I have seen seems to be high voltage.
Does anyone know where I can get any low voltage ones? (I have
searched but not found any).
Also, does anyone know of a good motion sensor system for low voltage
Thanks in advance!!!
High voltage is generally considered more than 69000 volts. Medium voltage
is over 1000 volts to 69k.
Surely you mean line voltage, i.e. 120v.
Why not just modify the post for the light fixture of you choice.

Huh...I had the opposite situation. I had a low voltage post light that I
wanted to replace with a 110v light because it was old and ugly. But, since
the wiring was already installed for the existing 24v light, and I have an
in-ground sprinkler system that would have been in harm's way should I try
to run new wiring for a 110v light, I decided to replace it with another 24v
light. The only place I could find them was through the local power
company. So, you might want to check with your electric company. The only
caveat: They'll probably be expensive.
I did this, I had some really neat old post lamps that I turned into free
standing lights which I sat in the landscaping behind our pool. They were
originally standard, line voltage lights. How I made it work with our low
voltage (Malibu lighting) system was this:
Go to your local big box and go into the electrical department. Find those
screw in plugs which you can screw into a lightbulb socket and it has a
single plug on it. Then grab yourself a small male end plug replacement
like you would replace a worn one on the end of a cord. Then go to where
the low voltage stuff is, and grab one of the cheapest fixtures, usually a
few bucks. Usually the light bulb socket which the small 12v bulbs goes
into are on a pigtail. I cut off the quick connects, wired it to the plug
(I made mine about 2" high so it would stand up straight), wired the fixture
to my low voltage wiring and screwed in the screw socket and plug your newly
made socket into the screw plug. Easy!!!!
