We’re the only company in Canada that solders & heat shrinks their lighting strings together. The more plastic and copper connectors you have in a string of lights, the more opportunity you have for failure and problems. We know, we’ve been doing this for a long time. We used to have a full-time service crew to deal with the connectors. Now we don’t!
Most outdoor lights are rated to -20; we’re the only company in Canada to offer a light with a low temperature rating of -55 degrees
In addition to the impressive cold weather resistance, we’re also the only company in Canada whose lights are fireproof rated at all.
GemStone LED lights are fully programmable, and can be controlled from your smartphone.

Are you interested in a lighting installation? We are here to help you
It all depends on what you want to get done. Normally, they cost $3,000 to $6,000. Our cheapest system to date was $2,800 and the most expensive system was $8,500. Still, in the long term, it is far better than paying a company to install temporary Christmas lights every year. If you were to pay a company $400-$850 per year for 15 years, it would cost you $6,000-$12,000 for a less versatile product.
They are LED lights and it depends on how much they are used. We would say the majority of your lighting system should last 15 years.
The lights we use are controlled by an app on your smartphone. You can choose any colour, run a preset program, or create your own. The only hiccup is that the LED controller has its own dedicated Wi-Fi network you must connect to first, rather than your pre-existing network conveying the signal.
We looked at the apps for both Gemstone and Glowstone lighting and, honestly, they are both a bit clunky. It is relatively new technology, and growing in popularity, so our very reasonable hope is that these apps will become more user-friendly in future updates.
