Practical Q&A

How to choose the color temperature and power of ceiling lights brands

Answer: Follow the recommendations below to achieve the basic brightness for your home.

Living Room:4-5W/square Meter Bedroom2-3w/square Meter
Restaurant, kitchen: 5-6W/square meter

It is important to use the same color temperature for all lighting sources in a space. This will help create a more harmonious lighting effect.

It is recommended that the color temperature of a ceiling light be no higher than 4000K.

Nowadays, almost all ceiling lamps come with dimming and memory functions as standard, so there is no need to worry.

For the problem of over-brightness, it is more practical to buy stepless dimming for bedrooms than three-stage dimming.

How to choose a color rendering index

Answer: The ceiling lamp is an essential lighting fixture. It’s best to have it as high as possible.

According to the national standard Ra>80, R9>0 can meet most home needs.

Therefore, the CRI of many large circulation brands is still based on the national standard line. Ceiling lamps with high color rendering can be used in studios and children’s bedrooms if you have a Sufficient budget.

Better light quality

High-quality light sources can indeed play a big role in specific scenes, such as painting, makeup and other tasks with high color requirements.

They are also more comfortable for daily use. This is why we buy high-color rendering lamps or full-spectrum lamps for grounding.

Reasons to be angry, not gimmicks such as “eye protection”.

If you care about color rendering index, purple LED is currently the first choice. It has low spectral missing rate, high continuity, small color tolerance, gentle spectrum, no obvious troughs and peaks, and the spectrum is closest to sunlight.

For example, the pictures below are both 4000K and Ra>96 high color rendering LED lamps. Spectrum shows the difference.

Some lights may have a very high color index but still show a dim color under the light.

Ra is the average value of R1 to R8.

This part mainly represents the reducibility of light colors. For example, R12 in the picture below is only 70 +.

If you really care about the CRI, don’t hold on to Ra.

Consider the color spectrum, CRI (color rendering index), Rg/Rf and color tolerance.

E-commerce companies often use red apples and strawberries to describe CRI.

Buying purple LEDs is the easiest and most reliable solution.

Q: What are the common ways of emitting light from ceiling lamps? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Answer: Direct lighting, light guide plate side lighting, linear silicone lampshade

Q: Why are light guide plates better than traditional ceiling lights?

Answer: It’s thinner (about 2cm) than the ceiling lamp which is 10cm.

More comfortable. The side-emission of the light guide is more comfortable than the direct downward emissions of traditional ceiling lights.

It is more beautiful, easier to use, and durable.

It’s less worrying. It’s a metaphysics that traditional ceiling lamps won’t let mosquitoes in. Light-guided ceiling lights are a science.

Richer means more expensive

Question: Which direct-emitting ceiling lamps have advantages over light guide plate ceiling lamps?

Answer: The power supply and direct emitting light source are modular.

By removing the lamp shade, you can easily change the source of light.

The maintenance cost is extremely low. The light guide plate is not for non-professionals.

Linear silicone lampshade: The most commonly used method for linear surface ceiling lamps, which can create a linear feel and is slightly dazzling. The conventional lamp body thickness can range from 6cm to 8cm.

Q: What is the life expectancy of a ceiling light?

Answer: Generally, the service life of the brand’s LED lamps is 15000h~25000H+. According to the usage frequency of 8 hours a day, there is no pressure for more than 5 years. Lamps with high positioning are free of pressure for at least 10 years (with low light efficiency). Come on, I’ve said it 100 times. Please buy brand-name lamps and lanterns for light sources. You must buy brand-name lighting sources, even if you are buying brand-name lanterns and lamps.

It is not dead light, but a product that does not meet the commonly used L70 standards.

Question: How to choose the size of the ceiling lamp in the living room?

Answer: The ratio between the length width and the heightwidth should be 1:5. For example, if the living room is 5M3.5M, the lamp should be about 100cm70cm. It is for reference only.

Question: What is the mainstream price range for ceiling lamps?

Answer: If we take three bedrooms and two lounges as an example, the typical budget is between 2-3K. It doesn’t matter how much the ceiling lamp costs, as long as it has a premium brand, is a different model or offers a better light source, materials, workmanship and functionality. It can be purchased as a set. You can save money by buying them together.

Question: There are many big brand ceiling lamps online that are very cheap. Can I buy them online?

Answer: Of course you can. If you’re on a tight budget, running models from different brands are a good option. But don’t demand too much. If you have high demands, please top up.

Why?

  • Volumetric energy stores and e-commerce competitors cannot even imagine it. E-commerce is accustomed to selling 10W+ of a model, but the entities are not even aware of it. The profits of merchants are low because each brand has their own models that sell in large quantities. Even though they rely on lamps with high unit prices to make profit, some companies lose money or make money when big sales occur.

One lamp is produced on a single production line. Single product sales can start in the tens or hundreds of thousands. The cost of opening the mold is negligible, no matter how low it is.

Is the quality poor?

-Won’t

Today’s LED light source technology is very mature. The service life of the LED light source is 15000H to 25000H. The average maintenance interval will be no less than five years if the light is used 8 hours per day. And the average defect rate will be no more than 1%. The manufacturer is likely to lose money if the light is not maintained.

In terms of light source: there is no problem if it is qualified, and many ultra-cheap lamps have a color rendering index of over 90. LEDs and driving powers supplies are already mature and very popular.

It is true that “saving” materials is “saving”, but it is rarely “stealing”.

Q: The line-surface series ceiling lamps are much more expensive. What’s the price difference? Is it worth it?

Answer: The price difference is mainly due to the model. Small sales volume, high assembly costs, and high single-mode costs are all reasons for the high price. From the perspective of the lamp itself, the premium is higher than the value. It is worth a few dollars more from an aesthetic perspective. In other words, buy something that looks good.

Question: What kind of style will not go out of style easily?


Answer: The simpler and classic the model, the more eye-catching it is. The shorter the lifespan of models that are popular on the internet and flashy will be the more the model is known. Styles of lamps change every year. It is impossible to decorate your home every year. Classic models are the best to buy. main direction.

Q: Any recommendations for brands of ceiling lamps?


The price is recommended for a three-family room (only suitable for traditional ceiling lamps that emit direct downward light)

2) lipro E2 ceiling lamp

Important upgrade

Continues to maintain the high quality “Ruran light” that is similar to sunlight.

2Ecological upgrade, opening up the Mijia ecosystem on the basis of Lipro Smart Home, HomeKit, and matter.

3Brightness upgrade, the brightness/power of the same type of ceiling lamp has been greatly improved, and it is “not dazzling”.

The entire light source is purple LED. It has low blue light and low color tolerance. High color fidelity and a high CRI90+ color rendering index. Ra97+, the light source quality is undoubtedly top-notch.

HomeKit Mijia and Matter are finally here.

It’s true that I used to boast about him being an abortion expert, but now I can no longer call him such.

Each product is unique and designed with the user in mind.

After installation, the round ceiling light is only 2.16cm in thickness.

Materials and workmanship are clear from the inside out. The price may not be cheap but the quality of the products and the price/performance ratio are still good.

3) Berman rohm S1/A1/L1

I bought Rohm. It was really untimely. Just one month after receiving the goods, it was said that it had been upgraded to full spectrum.

I didn’t confirm with the official whether it was a purple LED (I don’t know if it was true). Ten thousand ants were floating in the sky, but Judging from the data I tested before, the light source has indeed improved a lot.

The official announcement has been made

This lamp works well regardless of the source. The lamp is made of metal and has a lot of weight.

It is easy to tell that it’s a Berman Lamp at first glance.

It is also very recognizable. Berman also offers a 10-year warranty on performance, which is a very good thing in the lighting industry.

This is the first of its kind, and this is the attitude that an established international lighting company should have.

Both rectangular living room lights and round bedroom lights are available

Honeywell ceiling light

It’s not considered a new model, it’s just listed here with the ones in the same price range for your convenience.

Bright, very bright, the ideal light living room lamp is 8000lm, the natural light (direct light) is up to 9000lm, oh my…

Ideal ceiling light is brighter but less powerful than natural ceiling lights.

-Lamps that have high color rendering are often forced to sacrifice brightness. Ideal light is side-emitting and has a lower utilization rate. It is normal for high power and low brightness.

It is also a very good lamp, and it is still highly recognizable. The brand’s 13 grids are also displayed here.

Some people say that there are “water ripples” when taking photos of Honeywell lights with a mobile phone, and they say there is a stroboscopic hazard.

Let me tell you: No, no, no. There is no risk in using a stroboscope to measure it. Photographing with a mobile phone is unreliable. I didn’t see any “water ripples” in the photos taken with my mobile phone.

The lamp is a good lamp, but I personally don’t like putting the logo on the luminous surface. The advertisement is a little forced.

5) yeelight light guide slim/mix

Yeelight will be very familiar to you. Mijia’s eco-lighting section is dominated by this product. Its products have good value for money. After the ultra-thin ceiling lamps in the first half of the year were overturned, slim mix is here. It has all the functions that Mijia has.

Showdown: This lamp is very popular, and I am also riding on the popularity of this ceiling lights brands. I am too busy during this period and really don’t have time to do it. I will also use the cloud for the time being. The feedback from friends is not bad. According to the urinary properties of yeelight, it should be No big deal.

Let everyone identify it by themselves

Pick up missing items

If your pocket is tight, the high-volume models of various brands are almost the best solution, just buy indiscriminately with your eyes closed.

During big sales, they are all used to make money. Price-performance ratios are very high. Usually, a whole house can be purchased for just a few hundred yuan.

You can enjoy the quality and service of big brands at the price of other brands, but don’t ask for too much, especially Workmanship, please top up if you have high requirements.

The budget for the whole house is only 0.5K-1.5K, and there are high-volume models, cost-effective models, and high color rendering models. Here’s a link:

2) yeelight Lingxi (within 2K)

A very classic model. The package price last year was 2K+. I tested the ceiling lights brands last year and the color rendering index was Ra95. According to the website, it has been upgraded to a “full spectrum”, Ra97. In theory, it is better than the original one. Even without upgrading the source of light, the price is still worth it.

Lingxi has launched a back-mounted tri-proof light this year. You can choose. Here are a few suggestions.

How do you select an individual?

Three male Aurora Haoyu within 2K or less

The main ceiling lights brands is less than 1K. It is very cost-effective and has a good light source. I have recommended this light to several Zhihu influencers through private messages and bought it. They all said it was good after using it and that the price is also important.

You can still save money by choosing the cloud wing lighting set for your bedroom. It costs more than 1K dollars for the entire house.

4) jade fiber yeelight (approximately 2K).

This lamp has been mentioned thousands of times. This is a classic Yeelight model. It used to have daylight algorithm, but it has been castrated long ago. The reduction of configuration is probably to widen the gap with the new model, so that the new model can be pushed away more easily. I have seen crowded For toothpaste, there really isn’t much to squeeze out.

The lamp has a color rendering index of 90+. It comes with Mijia Smart Control, Atom Switch, dimming, and color adjustment as standard.

A three-bedroom package with four lights cost just under 2k last year. This year, it only costs a few thousand yuan, a discount of several hundred yuan. It is still worth buying.

5) Philips Yixuan ceiling lamp (1K+)

The lampshade is minimalist, the alloy frame is made of solid materials, and with a luminous flux of 120W 8300lm, it is easy to handle more than 30 square meters with one lamp. The 970*650 size is too big. Large light-emitting surfaces also produce a softer light with the same brightness.

The lowest color temperature of 2700K and the highest color temperatures are 6500K.

CRI, Ra80+, passed.

Ultra-thin? The thin frame does not mean the thinness of the whole ceiling lights brands. The frame is 2.8cm thick and the whole lamp measures 9cm.

intelligent? With one remote, you can travel the globe. It has four preset lighting functions, including a sleep mode and a delayed lights-off function.

Why do you recommend this lamp?

What the picture shows is that it is durable and has low failure frequency. This is a model that’s cost-effective and comes from a well-established lamp manufacturer. Expect nothing fancy and no eye-catching features. This lamp is more suitable for you who want to be worry-free, simple and pragmatic.

Midea Natural/s (1.5K-3K+).

The light source is what makes the product stand out. A light source that can reach Ra98 is indeed good, but the blue saturation of R12 is in the upper 80s at any brightness and cannot reach 90.

Overall, the ceiling lights brands source is already very good. The manufacturer just doesn’t want you to know. That’s it.

The light guide plate is the most important selling point for this lamp, not the quality light source. The light produced by this method is very uniform.

This lamp has good brightness, and the prism lens guides the light evenly, making it bright and not dazzling.

Well, the S is meant to lower the price. It has a plastic shell, lower brightness, and smart control. If you want to be cheap, have a good light source, and don’t have any requirements for texture, choose S.
