A flood light is a type of light fixture that is designed to project a wide beam of light over a large area. Flood lights are typically used for outdoor applications such as illuminating large open spaces, buildings, and landscapes. They are often used for security lighting, sports field lighting, and stage lighting. Flood lights are available in a variety of lamp technologies, such as incandescent, halogen, metal halide, high-pressure sodium, and LED. They can be mounted on walls, poles, or other structures and are often adjustable to direct light where it is needed. Some flood lights have motion sensor or timers to help save energy and costs.
