Things to Consider When Buying Hive Lighting

When you’re shopping for the right stage lighting, you have a lot of brands to choose from, and Hive makes all sorts of lighting that is perfect for everything from small houses of worship to large corporations and everything in between. Their lighting systems are portable and easy to learn, so you don’t have to be a tech genius to know how to operate them. Best of all, the company makes all types of lights, so you can get all of the lighting you need in one location.

If you’d like to research their lighting systems before deciding which one to purchase, below are some factors to consider.

Price

Hive lighting systems range from $400 to $8,000, but keep in mind that this includes all types of lighting, including open face, par, and spot lights of all sizes and types. Because of this, you shouldn’t place a lot of emphasis on price alone, but instead, you should consider getting a light that meets your needs to be more important than just the cost.

Portability

With few exceptions, lighting systems should be portable, even if you intend to attach them to the wall or a pole. When you have to adjust or maneuver the light, it’ll be a lot easier to have something that is small and lightweight. If you ever have to relocate the lighting system, the portability of that system becomes even more important. For this reason, you should consider beforehand exactly what you might be doing with the lighting system even years from now.

Warranty

For lighting systems, warranties are important, which means you should check your system as soon as you receive it to make sure everything is as it should be. Most companies offer warranties of one year or longer, but it’s still good to contact the manufacturer as soon as possible if anything goes wrong with your lighting system. There are also different types of warranties; for instance, limited and full warranties, and it’s good to be aware of the differences.

Types of Lighting

Each type of stage lighting has a different purpose, and if you’re not aware of what each type is made for, it’s a good idea to learn. Knowing a little bit about each type is the best way to make sure you get a good deal on the type you need to purchase. A little online research helps, but once you find the type of lighting you need, you’ll be able to determine how much you should be paying for it so that you don’t pay more than you should.
