Trex Low Voltage Lighting Photos
These are the post cap lights on my Trex Transcend deck. It's magical to be on the deck at dusk. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
Here's a collection of photos showing how I connected up my Trex low-voltage lighting.
Trex Low Voltage Lighting Is Easy to Connect
First, allow me to show you what the lights look like when they're on:

I lifted the post cap off the post so you can see the wiring. The light comes with the pre-wired stub and it just plugs into the extension wire that runs inside the sleeve down to one of the splice blocks under the deck. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
Here's a Trex splice block. This one has a power wire coming into the block to feed it and one going out to the next splice block. That leaves space to connect four different lights. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
Here's a Trex low-voltage transformer. They come in two sizes. The Trex manual shows you how to calculate what size you need. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
Trex Low Voltage Timer
The Trex timer has a very short cord. You plug it into a standard GFCI outdoor outlet. Mine is under the deck to keep it nice and dry. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
Here's the timer again. The transformer plug goes into the bottom of the timer. It's like plugging in a lamp into a wall outlet at your home. So safe! Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
This is the front view of a Trex low-voltage riser light. You can see it's small and the light goes down, not up. Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
What better way to tell your visitors what they're standing on? Copyright 2018 Tim Carter
