An outdoor post lantern is attached to the top of a metal post (not included). This is usually positioned at the entrance to a driveway, or in the middle of a large open space. It can also function to light an entry-way if placed close to the building. Light is emitted in all directions. As a hardwired fixture, outdoor post lights are electrically installed and may be operated by a wall switch or sensor. A larger yard may need more than one. They can be alternatively mounted onto a pier-mount adapater on top of a wall.
This light fixture cuts down on light pollution, helping to support a "dark sky". The design ensures that most of the light is directed downwards or out to the sides, rather than upwards into the sky. This is accomplished by reducing the sideways visibility of the light bulb. This helps to reduce light pollution levels and helps to keep the glow of city light to a minimum.

An outdoor light fixture attached to a post can shed a strong light into the surrounding area. At night it can light up a whole yard, although the most light will be found nearer to the fixture. Post-mounted lights can light up a driveway or larger outdoor space. You may need more than one for a larger yard, especially for lighting in the dark.
For outdoor use in an exposed area such as in the middle of the yard, or next to a driveway or entrance.
A post light will radiate in all directions, which covers a reasonably large area. Note that you'll get strong shadows at night from plants and other objects. You would do well to pair it with a wall lantern or other light.
Mounts on top of a lamp post or pier mount adapter. The post should be the appropriate diameter to fit the fixture. Posts and pier mounts are sold separately.
An electrician or person with electrical installation knowledge will need to permanently wire the post light into the building's electrical supply.
I replaced post lights on my deck with these. They are an excellent match with the 31321 BZ Bayport Wall Lights. They appear to be well constructed and give full cut-off lighting with the new 40w or 60w equivalent LED bulbs. They eliminate glare and shine much more light on my deck than my old glass decorative lights. Recommended!
