After years of leading the way in the world of LED Deck Lighting, DEKOR® has set its sights on an exciting, emerging technology—solar-powered lighting.
This shining new endeavor was sparked by years of customer interest and demand, and dually supported by the latest innovations in battery and solar panel technologies, encouraging the thought that solar was soon becoming the next big thing in LED deck lighting. But, we didn’t want to step into the world of solar deck lighting just for the sake of popularity. If we were going to evolve as a brand and premium lighting source, our next step into solar would speak volumes about the future of DEKOR®. So after years of intensive product research, enhanced technology development, and countless lighting conferences, we set forth on a path to solar that was sure to shine.
Introducing DEKOR®’s first step into the world of solar: The Savvy Solar Post Cap.
Because the Savvy Solar Post Cap relies on the sun’s rays to charge up the LEDs, there is virtually no setup needed when adding your new caps onto your deck posts. Simply slide your new Savvy Solar cap onto its designated post or post sleeve to seamlessly integrate style and shine to your deck. The robust weight and durable powder coating will keep your solar post caps closely adhered to your posts without any adhesive needed. To adjust the brightness or timing of your solar post lights, slide the cap back off, and using the included dual-head screwdriver, turn the dials to find your perfect shine.
DEKOR®’s Savvy Solar Post Cap design echoes the best-selling style of our flagship LED Post Caps collection, with robust recycled aluminum housing and a clean silhouette. After countless revisions, developments, and updates, the Savvy Solar Post Cap perfectly encapsulates everything we aim to deliver to our customers: modern style, superior function, and subtle shape. The solar component of the cap is effortlessly integrated into the design to absorb optimal sunlight without intruding the sleek silhouette.
By integrating DEKOR® solar post lights into your deck, you’re effectively removing a degree of dependence on your home’s electrical provider. While seemingly small, the energy consumed by everyday home products can add up over time. With the addition of DEKOR® LED Savvy Solar Post Caps, you can lighten the load of electrical usage and transition your home into the age of sustainable and forward thinking. Together, we can create a brighter, more independent lighting system that enables you to stretch your dollar without sacrificing quality.
Stormy day protection
Even in the sunniest of states, there’s always a cloudy day ahead. To better serve our customers, we’ve enabled our Savvy Solar Post Caps to charge alternatively with an external power source on the days where the solar energy runs low. Ensuring there’s no loss of light or ambiance, simply pop off your post cap, connect the optional Plug-N-Play™ connector to a DEKOR® transformer, and plug into an available interior outlet to charge indoors. That way, when rainy days overtake your home, your deck can still shine with DEKOR®.
DEKOR® solar post caps are offered in the same dimensional sizes as the original LED Post Caps collection, with 6 popular cap sizes to serve a broader range of deck setups. Additionally, DEKOR® Savvy Solar Post Caps are offered in all 7 of our popular powder coatings: Antique Metal Black, Dark Copper Vein, Brown Speckle, Oil Rubbed Bronze, Gloss Black, Black Gold, and Hammered White. And, the Savvy Solar Post Cap is available in 5 lighting configurations, depending on your deck setup. This integrated selection was chosen based on popular deck color schemes, best-selling choices, and universally appealing shades.
Superior battery source
The Li-Ion Polymer battery within the cap housing is the heart and soul behind our new solar post lights. Without a reliable, efficient source of power, the absorbed solar energy will not be fully converted into DC energy, effectively wasting the sunlight your solar cell spent all day collecting. With our premium power source, your solar post caps use the same cutting-edge battery technology found in all modern cell phones, ensuring maximum charging capacity and minimal degradation over time. Using this prime battery as the source for solar energy conversion, your solar post lights will charge up with optimized efficiency and rapid response.
Smart charging indication
To simplify the charging process and ensure lasting shine, all Savvy Solar Post Caps are equipped with smart changing indicators. When you set your new solar post caps to your ideal brightness and lighting schedule, the smart solar technology will be able to calculate if enough solar energy has been generated to stay illuminated according to your settings. If your schedule exceeds the capacity of your currently charged solar post lights, the caps will blink several times to indicate an energy deficit before staying on as long as it can. If you see blinking, you can simply let your post run as long at the battery allows and wait for sunnier days ahead, adjust your settings, or charge it up using the alternative charging method.
While solar deck lights are quickly emerging as a new alternative to low voltage LED lighting and other lighting sources, it is important to assess if this shining option is right for you.
As the name implies, our solar post caps require a healthy dose of sunlight to stay illuminated. All day, the solar cell found at the top of your cap slowly absorbs the sun’s rays, and from there, that energy is converted into DC electricity to charge up your LED lights. With such a complex process at work, it is important to consider the level of sunlight your solar post lights have the capacity to absorb.
If you’re living in a cloudy state, or a state with ever-changing weather and a difficult temperament, collecting adequate levels of solar energy can be quite the challenge. Now, with our manual battery charging option, you can always pop off your cap and charge it indoors to prep for cloudy days ahead. However, as a trusted consumer brand, we at DEKOR® think there may be more ideal post cap options to be found for your cloudy conundrum.
The Savvy Solar Post Cap was designed to reflect the style, shape, and shining quality of our pioneer LED Post Caps collection. With the same recycled aluminum housing, dimensional powder coating, and top-of-the-line Cree LEDs, you can achieve the same glowing effect of our solar post caps without the sunny requirements.

Your solar post lights will illuminate at dusk when sunlight is no longer detectable by the solar cell—how long they stay illuminated is up to you. Adjust the schedule of your solar post caps using the timer dial found on the underside of the solar cell. Ranging from 1 - 12 hours in length, turn the dial using the flathead side of the included screwdriver to find your ideal brightness. Set your timer anywhere from a 1 - 9-hour schedule with the according number (1 - 9) turned in the arrow position. 0 signifies a 12-hour timer. Timer’s default setting is set at 6 hours.
For days where the sun is nowhere to be found and you’d prefer to keep your lights off, your Savvy Solar Post Caps are designed with a manual ON/OFF switch for simple control. Simply push the ON/OFF button in to activate your solar post caps, and push again to deactivate. As long as your ON/OFF button is pushed in, your lights will stay illuminated according to your set schedule.
DEKOR®’s solar post caps have the ability to shine at a range of brightness levels, enabling you to fine-tune the brightness to your exact specifications. To use the brightness dial on the right, simply turn the dial using the Phillips head of the screwdriver duo included. Turning the dial to the right brightens the overall shine, while turning it to the left dims the shine. Slowly adjust the angle of the dial to find your perfect shine.
