So far, I love it! It's everything that I was hoping for and more. It was super easy to set up, and it's a real joy to use. The pure red color looks and feels identical to my beloved red Feit LED light. In addition to that, I can reduce the brightness so far that it's almost too dim. I love having that range. I have always wanted a much dimmer true red LED light.
Of course, it can do much more than that. I can choose literally any color I want - and at any brightness, or I can pick from dozens upon dozens of predefined settings and scenes. This is a fantastic smart light! It has the full range of super simple operation to super fun and fancy operation. Judging from the LIFX app, it seems the only limit is my imagination and creativity.
I am definitely getting another one! I don't know if I should get one now, or wait until I have a little more money, but I am definitely getting one as soon as possible.
Our Philips Hue implementation does something like this - it makes lights considerably warmer than the screen all the time, and there are three settings to say how much of this we do. If you are using Hue and we can add another preset that's even warmer, we'd be open to it.
Hey, hamma2020. Besides color temperature (above 5000 Kelvin), there are other basic things you should keep in mind when choosing a bulb or tube for an art studio. Here they are:
Color Rendering Index (CRI) - CRI of an LED bulb should be equal to or above than 80. A high CRI helps lighting source accurately reproduce colors. Brightness - For a small to a medium sized room, 6000-8000 Lumens would suffice (120-watt bulb) Luminous Efficiency - An average luminous efficiency of 80 -120 Lumen/watt is generally required for producing white and bright light.
Since you couldn't find the desired LED lights in your city or on the web, I'd love to suggest a global LED supplier here, SeniorLED. Price is affordable & quality is top-notch. Other goodies include AIG insurance, brand warranty etc. For the record, I sourced my entire LED lights (for house & office) from this China-based manufacturer which turned out a great buy. You can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org
Ping me in case of any further query. Hope I helped.
Hey, John Wicky or should I say "The Boogeyman"? (kidding) Now coming to your query, if you haven't already, you definitely should install LED lights in your house. Besides providing brighter illumination, LED lights can also help you save a huge chunk of money in energy costs. That's one of the major reasons behind the unprecedented growth of LED lights in the world.
Talk about myself, I have been using LED lights for years and understand their advantages very well. A few years back I entirely replaced my house lighting with LEDs, higher energy bills & dull illumination were the prime reasons why I shifted from CFLs to LED lights. Furthermore, I took the China route for buying LEDs and bought LED lights from SeniorLED in bulk simply because Chinese manufacturers produce high-quality LED lights that are affordable as well. Besides that, sourcing from direct manufacturers reduces the extra cost.
Honestly, the brilliant lighting came out from the LED lights took me by surprise (don't forget I am the guy who used fluorescent, CFLs, and halogen bulbs for years). They not only rapidly lighten up the space but also provide a soothing environment at home.
Go ahead and install LED lights in your house. I hope you find a great supplier.
@helloha I recently purchased one such lamp. It has the ability to shine in different colors. It can be programmed for any modes. I put the automatic inclusion of different modes during the day. It will be in the morning, increasing the brightness and changing the color from red to bright with a temperature of 6000K for 30 minutes. (done with the setting, when the color changes every 3 minutes). In the evening, I programmed it to lower the brightness and go into more yellow tints. It requires a connection to the Internet. I am glad that you do not need to keep the connection with the phone permanent. It is managed from the server via the Internet. I think to buy more ..
