Outdoor Lighting System

United States Patent Application

View the Complete Application at the US Patent & Trademark Office
A lighting fixture can comprise a rim or raised edge that extends peripherally around a recessed area. Light emitting diodes can be mounted in the recessed area and oriented to emit light out of the recessed area, towards an area to be illuminated by the lighting fixture. The lighting fixture can be mounted above the area, which may be outdoors, for example. A cavity can be formed inside the rim or raised edge. Circuitry for the light emitting diodes can be disposed in the cavity, so that the rim or raised edge encloses or houses the circuitry. The circuitry can comprise a light emitting diode driver, for example. The rim or raised edge can block emission of unwanted light, for example to function as a light pollution shield.
