Spotlights emit directional light beams. Their possible applications are extremely varied, especially when it comes to multi-bulb models. Whether indirect light, selective accent lighting, or front door or façade lighting is desired, LED spotlights are often the best choice. LEDs offer several key advantages; most importantly, they consume much less power than other energy-saving and halogen lights. At Illumination.co.uk you will quickly and efficiently find the LED spotlights you need!
Spotlights with LEDs are available in all conceivable variations for example, as LED ceiling lights and LED wall lights. We only work with companies whose LED spotlights rightly have an excellent reputation. In recent years, the quality of the LEDs has steadily improved. Today's LEDs need only a fraction of the power that an Edison light bulb needs, but can still provide the same brightness. LEDs also score points for their tiny size and digital networking capabilities. They can be structurally combined almost arbitrarily in order to obtain precisely aligned light beams with the right characteristics.
LED spotlights do not need time to warm up to their maximum brightness, but instead they light up immediately to full strength. They do not become hot, as is the case with other types of lights, because their power is almost completely converted into light. Additional capabilities include a long lifespan of 20,000 hours or more. A big plus of such progressive lights is that they can create light of any colour! Powerful LED floodlights illuminate not only the house and garden, but they are also worthwhile for illuminating the buildings in some the most historic cities of the world.
The scope is enormous, ranging from tiny spotlights to multi-lamp ceiling mounted lights for atmospheric lighting effects and zonal illumination. Typical design elements for wall and ceiling spotlights are, for example, elongated lines and round or square plates with circular or rectangular arranged lights. Because LEDs can be so flexibly constructed, there are no limits to the design. Classic lampshades are not mandatory, as a simple flat glass layer and many other options are enough to prevent LED spotlight glare.
An essential technical parameter is the viewing angle at which the light can be seen and how far the light rays are scattered. The lumen value indicates the light output and therefore is a good guide for assessing its brightness: With only 8 watts of power for an LED, the same brightness can be achieved as with 60 watts from an incandescent bulb (approximately 750 lumens). Of course, the wall colour and many other aspects ultimately have an influence on the perceived luminance (ambient brightness). Remote controlled ceiling spotlights and other futuristic LED lights always ensure suitable mood light colours. Motion detectors are particularly advantageous for paths and high traffic areas.
In the kitchen, adjustable multi-bulb LED spotlights can serve to illuminate individual areas such as the countertop and the dining table. In living rooms, bedrooms, and hallways, exceptionally diverse opportunities arise, either as a recessed spotlight or as surface mounted spotlights. Both the lighting and lighting zone can be adjusted in every particular case, whether it is in warm white or another light colour. In addition, LED spotlights serve to highlight pictures, plants, and other decorative and atmospheric elements.
Depending on their exact position in the bathroom, bathroom spotlights must have a sufficient IP rating according to the standard protection areas in bathrooms. IP44 LED spotlights are not damaged by water spray (2nd digit is a 4, the 1st digit refers to ingress of foreign objects); IP45 spotlights are protected also against jets of water.
Outdoors, LED lights are mainly used as wall lights, path lights, and as outdoor spotlights. With their targeted light beams, they guarantee that a sufficient level of brightness always prevails in the desired areas. For LED spotlights to make a significant contribution, they should be angled in order to signal danger or prevent stumbling when crossing the garden or path in the freezing cold winter nights. With their elegant design, they also accentuate the outlay of the land, and they can act like a floor lamp next to flower beds by the entrance of a house.
For lights directed outdoors, lights with integrated motion detectors are a sensible choice, because they only cost electricity when they are needed, therefore their long service life is extended ever further. The motion detector idea for outdoor lighting was invented by a German company Steinel, and they are still today among the most popular light sources for outdoor properties. With a corresponding IPX8 rating for some LED spotlights, they may even be used as underwater lights to illuminate the pool or to add new value to the garden pond with some atmospheric lighting.
