LED Grow Lights Market 2014 - 2020 Agriculture Research Report Now Available at ReportsnReports.com.
April 18, 2014
  Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 18, 2014           This 2014 research on Grow Lights for Agriculture Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2014 to 2020 has 459 pages, 221 tables and figures. LED grow lights are more powerful and efficient than the older generation high-pressure sodium and metal halide bulb grow lights. They lower the electricity bill and produce less heat. Less heat allows putting the light closer to plants, they do not get burned. The quality of light is better for growing with LED specialized grow lights. LED specialized grow lights offer homogenous light distribution. Light distribution at precisely the right wavelengths is made possible. LED light sources offer light distribution for good photosynthetic response. Vendors are able to stimulate plant growth. Flora series LEDs provide accelerated photosynthesis and energy savings.             Grow Lights Market Driving Forces           * Demand for ability to grow food consistently         * Demand for ability to grow food locally   * Can grow food in warehouses     * Can grow food in the home       * Dedicating space that is efficient for producing food           * Fresh, sanitary food available consistently           * Food factories       * Ability to produce organic vegetables     * Ability to produce vegetables 24 hours a day         * Land available for farming depleting quickly         * New types of farming are evolving         * Growing of vegetables indoors all year round         A plant factory allows the growing of vegetables indoors all year round using LED lights that minimize power consumption.

April 18, 2014
  Kemp, Texas (PRWEB) April 18, 2014           Further adding to Larson Electronics' popular appearances on television and on the big screen, Paramount Pictures have chosen the HALP-24-2L to appear in an upcoming episode of CBS' NCIS: Los Angeles. Larson Electronics' line of industrial grade lighting products have proven to be a popular choice among set designers and film production companies due to their high performance and modern designs which lend themselves well to the production of today's action and sci-fi thrillers.             The HALP-24-2L hazardous area fluorescent light fixture is designed for use in wet areas and saltwater-marine environments where corrosion resistance is critical to equipment longevity and safety. This Class 1 Division 2 rated fixture is constructed of non-corrosive materials including a polyester housing reinforced with glass fiber, a poured in gasket for reliable sealing and an impact resistant acrylic diffuser. Corrosion resistant stainless steel latches secure the lamp cover to the housing and provide a firm lock against the poured in seal to prevent drips and water intrusion. This fixture carries a UL 1598A outdoor marine rating and meets US Coast Guard specifications. This lamp is ideal for hazardous areas where corrosion resistance is mandatory and space limitations require a compact lighting solution.     "We are very pleased to be a part of the film and entertainment industry," said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com.

BenQ XL2720Z
April 16, 2014
Once again, BenQ has a winner on its hands with the new XL2720Z ($529) gaming monitor. Like its predecessor, the BenQ XL2720T, the XL2720Z lets you take your game to new levels, with a fast pixel response and dedicated first-person shooter (FPS) modes. This time around, BenQ has upped the ante by adding a motion-blur reduction feature, a 144Hz refresh rate, and ZeroFlicker technology. Color accuracy and gray-scale performance are good, but not great, and there's noticeable color shift when viewed from an angle, but you get an excellent selection of I/O ports and a stand with multiple ergonomic adjustments. If you're into fast-paced gaming and want a monitor that can keep up with the action, the XL2720Z is as good as it gets and is our Editors' Choice for big-screen gaming monitors.

SmartThings Hub
April 14, 2014
The SmartThings Hub is the latest multi-protocol system to hit the fast-growing,do-it-yourself home-automation market. Available as a stand-alone hub ($99) or in two kits ($199 and $299) bundled with various sensors and switches, SmartThings supports Z-Wave, ZigBee, and Wi-Fi wireless communications, as well as the popular and fun IFTTT (If This Then That) Internet service. It is similar to hubs from Revolvand Staples Connectin that it provides a single app to control multiple devices, but its open platform approach to connecting to a variety of productssets it apart from the pack. Itdoesn't support popular wireless protocols like Insteon and Lutron's ClearConnect, and it requires a wired Ethernet connection, but it's otherwise a comprehensive solution and our first Editors' Choice for home-automation systems. Features and Installation I received the SmartThings Know and Control Your Home Kit ($299), which includes the Hub, two SmartSense Presence Sensors, two open/close vibration and temperature sensors (SmartSense Multi), a Jasco Appliance Module (smart power outlet), and a SmartSense Motion Sensor. Also in the box are an Ethernet cable, a power cord, batteries for the motion sensor, and adhesive tape for the open/close sensors.
