Here at Ultra Bright Lightz, we have a wide range of emergency lighting products for a variety of applications and industries, including plug-n-play and hardwired options. Which one should you choose? Check out our guide to find out!

Plug-n-Play Advantages

  • Easy to install: Plug-n-play products are very easy to install. Products like our UBL ilumex Dash Light and Stick Lights can be plugged in with a cigarette lighter plug in minutes! There is no need to drill any holes in your vehicle.
  • Does not require any extensive modification: A lighting system that is flexible and does not require any extensive modification is also ideal for POVs and volunteer firefighters.
  • Easy to control: Plug-n-play products may include a built-in cigarette lighter plug, an on/off button, and a pattern-changing switch. This means you can control your light without buying an external controller, which can be an added cost.

Hardwired Lights Advantages

  • Ideal for emergency vehicles: Hardwired lights are perfect for police cars, fire trucks, or any emergency vehicle that requires a complete lighting setup. This kind of setup can be synced and wired into an external controller.
  • Can be installed anywhere: Hardwired lights can be installed almost anywhere outside or inside a vehicle. There are countless options that can be customized to fit your exact needs and specifications. With hardwired lighting, the possibilities are endless!
