This is a discrete light that packs enough of a punch in most circumstances. Full brightness will give enough light for a 2 story home or a medium size tree. 3+ story homes or large trees may want to go with the Control Pro 500 or 800 LED Spotlights. All three are dimmable, but the even dimmest level on the 800 and the 500 can be too much for very small trees and architecture. The smaller size of the 300 is also preferable most of the time.
