What is Step Dimming? To make a lighting dimming, you need buy a dimmer and a dimming LED lighting(with a dimming LED driver).When you dim a light, you save up to 80 percent in energy and up to about 20 percent on your energy bill.The LED lighting can last longer when you use a dimmer to keep them lit. If you dim the lights by at least 25%, you will save approximately 1/5 of the electricity required. The softer the lamp fade, the longer the lamp lasts.These days with the more modern dimmer light switches, you can control the amount of lighting with a remote control. Touch dimmers give you a change of lighting just by pressing a button. You can set the mood for any room that has the adjusted dimmer light switched lighting. You can use dimmer switch lighting in living rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms and breakfast nooks.In conventional or traditional dimming, you will require a separate dimmer switch to be able to control the brightness of the LED lamp.  How can you get dimmable lights without changing your switches?Finding the right dimmer for LED products is not always easy and can often involve high costs and consultation. Producers recognises this trend and offers you an optimal and extremely simple solution.Did you know that you can dim a light without a dimmer? That there are lights which make it so that you don’t have to deal with complicated installations to get the right light? Lights which are convenient and simple to use?A light with a built-in 3-step dimmer makes it super easy to dim the light to any intensity. You don’t have to install anything or think about dimmer compatibility - all you have to do is to click the light switch one, two, or three times!Step-dimming lights can be dimmed using your existing switches, regardless of whether they are wall, cable, housing or step-switches. The dimmer technology is outsourced to the lighting components and saves you the tedious search for the right dimmer. By pressing the switch several times (on/off), the light source can be altered to your desired brightness level. There are 3 different brightness levels available; 100%, 50% and 25%.If the light is switched off and on again within 3 seconds, it automatically switches to the next dimming level. If the light remains switched off for more than 3 seconds, 100% brightness will automatically available the next time you switch it on, to save you changing it the next day.Dimming LEDs offer the following advantages: Saving energy, because less energy is used for reduced output levels. Extended life; the electronic components run cooler. This not only extends the life of LEDs but also increases the life of the phosphor coating that is used to produce white light.A dimmer is no longer necessary - you save in costs and consultation using your current light switch.Existing and already installed lights can be changed to LED step-dimming lamps by simply swapping them, with no tedious installation of a dimmer necessary.Dimming is easily possible and can be implemented without significant technical skills. Table, floor or wall lights can be made dimmable easily and without great technical skills with our step-dimming lightbulbs. As long as they have an integrated switch, this is possible, regardless of whether they are cable, housing or step switches...

Lumen or Watt? Anyone still looking at watts when deciding on buying a lamp will be left in the dark. The one measurement that counts in modern LED lighting technology is the lumen – a unit of measurement that is a much better indication of the brightness off a lamp than wattage.   Lumen is a more precise measurement for the brightness of a lamp than wattage.   Modern lamps display significantly lower wattage values than traditional incandescent light bulbs. The technical information on the packaging usually includes values between 5 and 10 watt. The wattage of modern lamps doesn’t tell you much about brightness you can expect. Conventional wattage x 10 = lumen value     Lumen (lm) is the unit of measure for luminous flux and is therefore the decisive value for the brightness of a lamp.Think about the purpose of the space you wish to light up, what kind of ambiance you want to create and how much light you will need to do that. We recommend the following values for basic lighting. These are based on averages measured over years of field experience and a range of tests which we conducted independently.   Basic lighting living area/hallway      100 lm/m² Basic lighting kitchen/bathroom              300 lm/m²   You should also consider the light colour of any new luminaire you buy, as it describes the type of light it will give out – choose from a yellowish (warm) to a bluish (cool) colour. The cooler light colours may appear brighter than warm ones, but may not be as cosy...

Bathroom IP zoning Firstly when looking for bathroom lights there are a number of considerations apart from the style you wish to use. There are Regulations on what lights can be used in different parts of the bathroom known as zones and lights should be IP rated for use within these zones. We all know that water and electricity is a deadly combination What is IP zoning for bathrooms? To illustrate the IP zoning regulations, we have divided the bathroom into areas, which are classified using the numbers 0, 1, 2. Zone 0 – Inside the bath or shower. Any fittings used here must be SELV (Separated Extra Low Voltage – max. 12 Volts) and have a minimum rating of IP67 - protected against immersion in water, total immersion proof; Zone 1 – Above the bath or shower to a height if 2.25m. Recommended IP rating: IP65. If the fitting is 240 volts a 30mA residual current device (RCD) must also be used to protect the circuit in this zone; Zone 2 – The area stretching to 0.6m outside the bath or shower and above the bath or shower if over 2.25m. An IP rating of at least IP44 is required; Outside the zones – anywhere outside zones 0, 1, and 2. Here, there is no requirement for any lighting solutions to be protected against particles or solid objects – no IP rating required. Any socket outlets you need – either for shavers, ply sockets or rechargeable toothbrushes -  need to be in this zone. In addition, the circuit  must be provided with a 30ma RCD protection.        The first digit – protection against ingress of foreign bodies, like: tools, dust, fingers, etc. The second digit – protection against ingress of liquids. Ex. IP44 offers protection against solid objects greater than 1 mm and water sprayed from all directions. The first digit – protection from foreign bodies (solids) 0 – no protection from foreign bodies; 1 – protected against solid objects greater than 50mm (e.g. accidental touch by hands); 2 – protected against solid objects up to 12mm (e.g. fingers); 3 – protected against solid objects greater than 2.5mm (e.g. tools and wires); 4 – protected against solid objects greater than 1mm (e.g. small tools and wires); 5 – protected against dust, limited ingress (e.g. no harmful deposit); 6 – totally protected against dust. The second digit – protection from liquids 0 – no protection from liquids; 1 – protection against vertically falling drops of water (e.g. condensation); 2 – protection against direct sprays of water up to 15 degrees from vertical; 3 – protection against direct sprays of water up to 60 degrees from vertical; 4 – protection against water sprayed from all directions – limited ingress permitted; 5 – protected against low pressure jets of water from all directions – limited ingress permitted; 6 – protected against high pressure jets of water (use on ship deck) – limited ingress permitted; 7 – protected against the effects of immersion between 15cm and 1m; 8 – protected against long periods of immersion under pressure. The most common IP ratings are: IP67, IP65, IP44, IP20. Depending on how high the risk of water entry is in each zone, you will need bathroom fixtures with the appropriate protection. To avoid electrocution, your bathroom lights have an IP rating which indicates which zones you can use them in.  ..
