What types of LED indoor lighting are there?
In our collection, you'll find recessed LED spotlights to light up the interior of your home. LED recessed spotlights are LED spotlights that are built into the ceiling. So they're beautifully integrated into your decor.
You have a choice of recessed LED spotlights with a GU10 fitting or recessed LED spotlights with a transformer. GU10 recessed LED spotlights are connected directly to the 230-volt power line in your ceiling. Therefore, the GU10 recessed LED spotlights operate on high voltage.
Recessed LED spotlights with a transformer operate on low voltage. The recessed LED spotlights are controlled by the transformer. The transformer ensures that the spots do not operate on 230 volts, but on 3.6 volts. The transformer converts the high voltage (230 volts) to a safe, low voltage (3.6 volts).
You can replace the LED spotlight in a GU10 recessed LED spotlight without having to replace the light fitting. However, in the case of recessed LED spotlights with a transformer, you will also have to replace the light fitting if anything is defective. Additionally, GU10 spotlights are often larger and higher than recessed LED spotlights with a transformer. So, for GU10 recessed LED spotlights, you'll need more space between the existing ceiling and the false ceiling.
What are the main specifications of LED indoor lights?
The most important specifications for indoor LED lighting are:
- The IP value
- The number of watts and lumens per LED
The IP value
Indoor LED lights differ in IP value. The IP value of indoor LED lighting shows to what extent the lighting is protected from dust and water. This value consists of two digits. Below, we explain what those digits mean.
IP-20: Indoor LED lighting with this IP value is suitable for rooms that are not damp. These include areas such as your living room, bedroom, or closet.
IP-44: Ideal for all rooms in your home. Lights with this IP value are also suitable for use in your extension. Lights with this IP-rating can withstand dust and slight water.
IP-54: Lighting with this IP rating can withstand dust better than IP-44 lighting and is also splash-proof. These lights are ideal for your porch, bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen.
IP-65: Lighting with an IP-65 rating is completely protected against dust and is splash and spray-proof. You can place these lights anywhere in your home, garden, and porch.
To know how much power the interior lighting consumes, look at the wattage. The higher the wattage number, the more power is being consumed.
All our interior lighting is dimmable. You can control the lights with a LED dimmer, with the Hamulight app, or with the remote control from the Nice Home Domotica system (home automation system). Any of these remotes will allow you to dim the lights.
The LED dimmer must be ordered separately. This also applies to the Hamulight app receiver. You need this to use the Hamulight app. Do you already have devices in your home that are controlled by Nice? You can use your current multi-channel Nice remote control to operate the LED spots. However, you will need to order the Nice LED receiver separately. If, you do not have a remote control, you will have to order one separately as well.
If you do not want to dim the lights, you can also connect the lights to an on/off switch. This is not included in our product range.
Accessories can help you during installation or ensure proper operation of your lighting. A hole saw, for example, can help you make holes in your ceiling. And the LED rotary dimmer, Hamulight app receiver, and Nice receiver and remote control help you dim your lights.
Would you like to connect your lighting to a motion detector? You can! Our motion detector has a range of up to 14 meters and switches on and off automatically. You can set the time and activation level yourself by means of rotary knobs.
