After seeing what the LED lighting and types of LED bulbs that can be found is also good to know how to choose the right according to the use or need. To do this we must take into account different aspects such as real power in lumens, the opening angle, temperature and light installation we have at home.
The light output
A lumen is the unit used to express the amount of light that is capable of generating a light bulb. The problem is that the lack of binding by manufacturers not to unify criteria so we can have some problems. However, the theory tells us that an LED is able to generate on its own between 60 and 90 lumens. Any value above is false or low or very optimal circumstances. As data, the record generated by LED lumens was 150 lm / w. For Lumens generates an LED bulb there is a small formula:
Actual lumens = The number of watts x 70.
70 being an average value that matches most of the bulbs in the market. Therefore, an LED bulb 12W offer a light output of 840 lm. Which would replace the light that generates a 60W incandescent bulb? As you can see generating the same amount of light for each saved 48w incandescent bulb that we replace. » Read more

Technology and connectivity can because when we are talking of lights and bulbs, the term Smart or advanced may be associated with the lighting systems at home.
If you are thinking about changing bulbs home and want to go beyond the LED lights, the world of the connected bulbs is there for you to discover and you can get started in a simple way in the world of home automation. However, how do these devices work? What are the differences between the models on the market? In addition, what I can do with a bulb connected worthwhile?
Why do I want to have bulbs connected at home?
More control and possibilities thanks to which are connected bulbs. With that starting point, we can begin to talk about the main difference advanced than traditional bulbs, whether LED or simply low consumption. » Read more
