I have a 30 ft * 30 ft backyard. Anyone could recommend me a good set of 1 or 2 lights which would allow me (when I am in the dining room) to see my dog (via a glass patio door) when he is in the backyard?
Please state the name of the product and retailer e.g. Home Depot.
Best light I've used many times. Bright light and LED and can stay on all night long for safety. rugged cast aluminum wont rust, crack or fade. Not sure where you live, but should be able to find online or a local electrical supply.

Thanks but it is too costly at $130.
I live in the GTA
I will need the cheaper lights to shine for a very period of time 5 to 20 minutes at one time.
Please recommend to me a much cheaper alternative.
Hardware stores sell cheap wall lights, I don't use them as they don't last and I don't really recommend them as after only a few years or one harsh winter, they need replacing. Plastic lights are no good for extreme temperatures. Look for something with spot lights and possibly a motion sensor and timer. Be warned these can be more headache than good. Remember, you get the quality you pay for though. LED bulbs are a good idea for longevity and reducing heat stress on the plastic.
I don't think Robert is far off for a quality fixture (which is what you asked for). If you want cheap then head down to Rona, Home Depot and pick something off the shelf: they are all plastic and made off-shore.
To put it in perspective, I just spent $2000 per light fixture for a client that wanted to light up their yard and I have also used the $15 dual bulb ones too. Regardless of the money you spend on the fixture, the amount of electrical work to install will be about the same.
For Robert - RC Lighting (RAB) makes an awesome exterior ceiling light for about $500 (for 347 volt); might be a bit less expensive for 110 / 220V (http://www.rclighting.ca/product.php?product=CLED52W/347%20RCL). These are pretty much my go to light now for clients

Is it wise to install a wooden cover box for the vertical board which has all of the switches? The builder had erected the vertical board in the basement.
The builder did not install a cover box but just a vertical board which accommodate all of the switches.
Is it against the law to cover the 15 different ON/OFF switches to make it look neat?
What are the pros and cons of a cover box?
