Under the Energy Independence and Security Act, new energy efficiency standards of light bulbs went into effect in January. Incandescent bulbs are officially out and Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights are in. Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) were thought to be the next big thing in lighting, replacing LEDs, but that hasn’t played out in the marketplace. For now, LED bulbs rule the category and have been developed to cover a variety of applications. Let’s take a look at three newer LED options:
S-Series 50W LED Flood Light: This flood light from Greenteke Energy Systems works as a replacement for 175-250w Metal-Halide or High Pressure Sodium lights. The product has instant start features with no charge or warm up needed and no flickering or humming. The flood light comes with a five-year warranty.
Lenovo Smart Bulb: This plug-and-play smart bulb works with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. It responds to voice commands that can adjust the bulb’s warmth, brightness and color. The 9-Watt bulb connects through WiFi and has a lifespan of 15,000 hours.
Honeywell INNCOM Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI): This two-way communication system enables the digitization of LED lighting across hotels and other commercial buildings. The INNCOM PC50X DALI offers smooth dimming with timer to ensure all lights are at the same level without flickering or buzzing. Other lighting options can be achieved with this system providing an inviting experience for hotel guests.
Many LED manufacturers also have filament or Edison bulb options as retro and industrial lighting looks are still on trend in 2020. To help clients determine the best LED bulbs for every room in the house check out this article from cnet.com.
