    Default Out door trim lights.

    I am looking to put some outdoor trim lights on my house. That way I can get away with not spending money every year on putting the Christmas lights up and taking them down.
    I got quote from the following two,
    1) Trim Lights (https://www.trimlight.com/) BavarianBeast used to own this company.
    The guy came to do the quote on my house wasn't prepared at all. He wasn't able to explain the product and the App they use is a 3rd party app. He wasn't able to demonstrate the app. Their product comes with 10 Yr warranty.

    2) Gem Stones Lights (http://gemstonelights.com/)
    One of my neighbors has this installed on their house. It is very low profile. It looks pretty good.
    The guy who came to do the quote was very professional and able to explain everything about their product. He also pointed out the difference between them and Trim Lights.
    They use their own app. Lights comes with 3 Yr Warranty.

    The Price difference between the two products is about 30%.

    My question is has anyone here installed these lights on your home? If so can your share your experience?

    Thanks

    We just recently finished up with Gemstone. Love how fast they went up, how professional the guy was and how reasonable he was when it came to finalizing the price. We lived close to him so he brought us to his house for a demonstration which was pretty cool.

    Realistically we got them for the pot light feature around the house and not having to put up Xmas lights anymore.

    Saw these on Facebook. I’d like to hear more of your experience. What was the rough cost per sf. Any regrets?

    Interesting. What did you meant by finalizing the price? Did he move on the price?

    Yes, seeing as I was the first on my street we discussed price afterwards.

    It is roughly $21/ft.

    Some of them are pretty conceiled when not on, while others stand out like xmas lights in the summer.... depending on your soffit colour.

    True. Both of these companies will color match tracks to your Soffit. Gemstones tracks is low profile so it blends well with the soffit.

    I used to own Trimlight Calgary and I had the product installed at my house. I think they are the highest quality out there, and I also think that they look the best. A few friends and family also have the product installed and they are very happy with it as well. Was it a gentleman named Curtis who came to do the quote? Sorry to hear they werenít prepared, I had a pretty awesome demo kit that was supposed to be used to show potential customers. Iíve got a ton of different themes for every holiday, nice to be able to make them strobe on Halloween. Bummed to hear they werenít prepared, tons of potential!

    It was Chris. He showed up with a 2 feet trim light. He said that he was in a hurry to get out of the house so he didn't get a chance to grab the demo box.
    We asked him whether he can show us the app and he said that he can't launch the app. I felt that he was dodging that question. I asked some specific questions on app whether the app is compatible with IFTT or any other scheduling apps and he again wasn't able to directly answer that question except to say there is a timer on the app.
    He kept on referring to a install which was couple of blocks from my house and asked us to go and see that house.

    A family member got the Gemstone lights about 2 years go, so far so good. We're getting them this year as well. Getting too old to be putting up lights.

    We’ve got Gemstone coming to install our lights next Tuesday. Quote system is super easy online, fill in the form and a couple days later you’ll get an email with pics of your house and where the lights will go, Power box will be placed and pricing.
    For our 2 story home it’s about $3k all in, but I had to pay a little more to have the power box located somewhere other than where their quote had it going.

    I went with Gemstones. For front and back it is just over 4K. Super happy with it. Easy to use and low profile and you don't even notice them.

    Not to be biased but Trimlight does put the best light out. There is a reason I bought into that technology.

    Know that I have zero stake in the company anymore.
