What is a LED spotlight?

LED spotlights are used to direct the light where you want and have great control options over your lighting direction.

You can use SMAlux LED spotlights and LED spotlight bulbs to replace outdated incandescent and halogen spotlights for display and retail purposes, track lighting, as well as recessed lighting.

Where can I use SMAlux LED spotlights?

That is why it can be used to highlight display panels in living rooms, bathrooms, backyards and other house spaces.

Also, it is widely used in the retail sphere: you can see shop displays highlighted with LED spotlights quite often.

SMAlux LED spotlights can even be used on manufacturing sites, especially in places where the direct lighting is needed.

Are LED spotlights somehow better than halogen lamps?

The answer is yes!

LED spotlights are way more efficient than halogen fixtures, which was figured out with the help of different tests.

Even though such spotlights cost more than halogen lamps, LED fixtures are much cheaper to run and maintain.

Finally, LED spotlights to produce a lesser amount of heat than halogen bulbs, which makes them a great choice for functioning in cold temperatures.

Can I replace halogen spots with LED spotlight?

Yes, in lots of cases you can replace halogen bulbs with LEDs easily, one by one.

The two most important things which should be considered before doing so is figuring out.

If your LED bulbs meet the voltage level requirements, and the type of used fittings (the bulb base or fitting is the part of the bulb that fits into the holder of the lighting device.)

How bright are LED spotlight bulbs and lamps?

Modern types of LED spotlights can produce about 100 lumens per watt of wasted power.

For comparison, old halogen spotlight bulbs can produce approximately 12 lumens per watt of used power.

That is why LED spotlights are more than eight times as effective as filament or halogen fixtures.

How many lumens should a LED spotlight lamp have?

This is quite a tough question because the number of lumens in the bulb does not directly depend on wattage and other bulb characteristics.

In theory, the average 10-Watt LED spotlight bulb produces about 800 lumens.

If you are not sure how many lumens you need, you can roughly estimate your requirements based on what you had used before switching to LED spotlights.

To do so, just use the next simple formula:

Lumens = (watts in halogen) x 15

E.g., if you had a 40W halogen bulb, you can easily estimate the number of lumens by multiplying 40 by 15 (600 lumens).

You can see the number of lumens mentioned in the LED spotlight product specifications and choose it according to your calculations.

Various bulbs comparison

What kind of colors do LED spotlights have?

In general, LED spotlights to glow with white and blue light.

These two colors can be slightly changed by coating the bulb’s surface with some special substances (such as yellow phosphor) to make a white light more warmer.

You can get an idea of the color of your future LED spotlight fixture just by checking its color temperature.

What is the color temperature of the LED spotlight?

Color temperature is needed to display the warmth of light.

It is measured in kelvins (K).

The color temperature describes how blue or yellow a light’s color is.

There are four main groups of LED spotlights in terms of kelvin amount:

  • 2700K LED spotlights to have practically the same color as the classic incandescent light;
  • 3000K spotlights have a slightly bluer color and are similar to halogen bulbs, but still, have a warm yellow color;
  • 4000K LED color is often called neutral white because it is neither blue nor yellow, being somewhere in the middle of the color temperature scale;
  • Any bulb with a color temperature over 5000K will appear bluish. Such bulbs can’t be used in the case of standard residential applications.

It is mostly recommended to pick 3000K LED spotlights from the very beginning.

You can see how the color of each above-mentioned type of LED spotlight differs in the picture below.

Comparison of spotlights with different kelvins

What is the beam angle of LED spotlights? Why does it matter so much?

On average, LED spotlights have a quite tight beam angle: approximately 50 degrees. 

However, in SMAlux catalog you can find LED spotlight fixtures with a wider beam angle: up to 120 degrees.

The beam angle matters because it shows how much light will be produced for a certain amount of space.

What are LED spotlight bulbs?

LED spotlight bulb is a solid-state lighting electrical device which can fit in standard screw-in connections and uses light-emitting diodes to produce light.

LED spotlight bulbs are the most nature-friendly devices (if you compare them with incandescent and halogen bulbs for example.)

LED spotlight bulbs use a semiconductor device which produces visible light when an electric current passes inside the bulb.

In electric science, such property is known as electroluminescence.

What is a COB LED spotlight?

COB is an abbreviation for Clip on Board.

This is the most recent technology in the area of LED lighting fixtures.

Its main task is to utilize individual chips with multiple diodes (nine or even more).

There is no carcass in the case COB technology which makes this type of spotlights have a much denser LED array of light if you compare such LEDs with other technologies.

Kind of a controlled and stable light beam is produced without any visible light points, producing soft lighting which is ideal for spotlights.

COB LEDs offers a greatly improved lumen per watt relation if you compare them with other LED types.

Spotlight bulb

What is an LED spotlight fixture?

In general, LED spotlight fixture is any kind of lamp (or group of lamps) which uses LED bulbs to spotlight some area.

All light fixtures have a body (casing, carcass) and one or more lamps (bulbs).

Such lamps may be situated in sockets for simple replacement.

However, in the case of some LED spotlight fixtures, lamps are hard-wired in place.

Which mounting options are available for SMAlux LED spotlight?

SMAlux LED spotlights are presented in two general types: as a bulb and as a standalone fixture.

So, the simple bulb can be mounted just by placing in the right fitting.

SMAlux LED spotlight fixtures can be installed at the ceiling or another flat surface with the help of screws and hooks.

What kind of fittings suit LED spotlight bulbs?

There are two main categories of LED spotlight bulb fittings.

Some LED bulbs have a screw thread that allows you to manually screw the bulb into the fitting.

It is called E27 type.

Other bulbs have two little pins below, so you should give the bulb a quarter turn to put it in the fitting.

Such bulb holders are called GU10.

LED spotlight with low and line voltage: What is the difference?

Low voltage LED spotlights to use a transformer to reduce the normal voltage (which is usually 120 or 277 volts) to 12 or 24 volts respectively.

It is used quite often in the case of recessed, track, pendant, and display lighting fixtures.

It is most useful when you try to direct the light to a tight, difficult-to-access area.

On the other hand, most spotlight systems are working in the line voltage mode.

It is a wide-spread standard in lighting.

Line voltage spotlights typically use 120 or 277 volts to transfer power to lighting applications.

Line voltage lighting systems do not need transformers to power up such lighting fixtures.

How to choose the best LED spotlight?

There are several key points which directly show the quality of LED spotlight fixtures:

  1. The power factor of LED spotlights. The low power factor indicates that the lamp is not quite efficient, and has a shorter lifetime.
  2. Spotlight fixture construction and used materials. LED lamp materials are very important, as well as the whole construction design. That is why SMAlux engineers use technologies which allow our LED spotlights to withstand excessive heat, cool temperatures, and other environmental factors.
  3. The quality of LED chips. The lamp quality is directly connected with chip quality and manufacturing technology.
  4. The quality of the power supply unit. The lifetime of the power supply unit affects the overall life of the spotlight fixture.
  5. The number of lumens. Sometimes spotlight fixtures with the same power factor can produce a slightly different amount of lumens.
  6. Ability to meet various international standards. There are lots of international safety and manufacturing standards which determine quality requirements for LED spotlights.
  7. Design and overall appearance. Appearance is an extremely important factor while choosing spotlight fixtures. You have to compare the design of the interior with lamp design and choose those which fit the most.

Why glass is used to manufacture LED spotlight bulbs?

First of all, glass is used as a safety barrier.

Glass is among those materials which do not need to be flame-tested.

These tests are needed for all materials used to contain dangerous voltage.

Glass is also good when it comes to transmitting light.

Special plastics can be used as well, but most of them are not transparent enough.

Can you put LED spotlight bulbs in a normal light fitting?

The short answer is yes, as long as the LED spotlight bulb is using less wattage than your normal light application.

Sometimes you can see a bulb label that states “100-Watt equivalent”, which does not mean that such an LED bulb uses 100 Watts.

This means that it produces an amount of light equivalent to a 100-Watt incandescent bulb.

If your fixture says not to exceed 60-Watts, this may be referring to the dangers of high heat output associated with non-LED bulbs.

However, the LED spotlight produces minimum heat while operating.

So, if your application says not to exceed 60-Watts but you want to use a 100-Watt equivalent LED bulb, this will be quite safe to do so.

What are the disadvantages of LED spotlights?

Even though LED spotlights are very efficient and safe, still there are several disadvantages:

  1. High price. LED spotlights are currently more expensive (speaking of price per lumen) than the vast majority of conventional lighting fixtures. The additional expenses are connected with the drive circuitry and power supplies needed.
  2. Electrical polarity. Unlike incandescent lighting fixtures, which work regardless of the electrical polarity, LED spotlight bulbs can operate only with correct electrical polarity.
  3. Blue hazard. There are concerns that white and blue LED bulbs can exceed safe limits of the so-called blue-light hazard as defined in some eye safety specifications. However, these concerns are still not 100% proven.

LED spotlight with magnetic base: what is it?

Some LED spotlights use the magnetic base to install.

A magnetic base is a magnetic fixture based on a magnet that can effectively be turned “on” and “off” at will.

As a result, you can attach such fixtures to any metal surface while the magnet is on.

Can LED spotlight flicker from time to time? Is it bad?

There are two main reasons why the LED spotlight can start flickering.

First of all, this can be the dimmer switch problem, which goes on and off many times per second, making your LED spotlight bulb some kind of a flickering strobe light.

If your LED spotlight fixtures operate without dimmers, the flickering can be connected with some other power supply problem.

In general, flickering can be harmful to your eyes so you have to fix this issue right after it arises.

Can I use LED spotlight for display cabinet?

LED spotlights can take display cabinet lighting to an entirely new level of sophistication and functional design.

Such fixtures prove to be ideal for lighting cabinets, displays, bookshelves, and eclectic furnishings.

Because LED spotlights can operate at very low temperatures and produce practically no heat, you can use them even as outdoor solutions.

What kind of LED spotlight is better for the bar?

In the case of bars and restaurants, the distinctive design is the most important factor while choosing the right LED spotlight fixtures.

You know this look quite well if you have spent some time at trendy restaurants and bars before.

Speaking of the SMAlux products, you can use simple spotlight bulbs for your bar fixtures. 

Another option is a ceiling LED spotlight: ready-made lamps which can be easily mounted in the ceiling.

Such spotlights direction can be regulated so you can easily highlight the needed spots inside the bar.

LED spotlight with dimmer: What is it?

Dimmers are modern devices which allow regulating the level of illumination in the room.

The LED dimmer is a special dimmer designed to adjust the brightness of LED lamps.

Properly selected dimmer for the LED lamp will allow adjustment of the bulb in a fairly wide range.

Dimmer with LED lamp is not only a convenient and modern type of lighting but also a very money-saving option.

Dimmer LED fixture has many obvious advantages.

As it was already mentioned, it saves electricity, perfectly fits into the design of each room and allows you to achieve comfortable lighting at any time of the day or night.

What does PIR means for LED spotlights?

PIR stands for passive infrared sensors, whose main task is to measure the infrared light that is produced by, or reflected from objects or living beings.

Imagine an unoccupied room, in which the PIR sensor is measuring the produced radiation from the surrounding furniture, walls, floor, and ceiling.

When someone comes in front of the sensor, the temperature at this point will rise from room temperature to the temperature of the new object (and then back again as the object moves on).

This change in incoming temperature triggers the sensor.

Such technology is widely used in the case of LED spotlights with a motion sensor.

Can I order an LED spotlight with motion sensor from SMAlux?

Yes, you can order LED spotlight fixtures with motion sensor from SMAlux.

Such a system can be very effective in the case of saving extra money because lamps with motion sensor will turn on only if some living person walks by, and turns off when no one needs the light in the area.

Which type of LED spotlights can be used outdoors?

SMAlux has a separate category for outdoor LED spotlights.

Such fixtures are designed to protect bulbs from various environmental effects, such as high humidity, dust, water, and so on.

SMAlux outdoor LED spotlights have IP65 or even higher waterproof rating, which means that they can be freely used outdoors even in the case of heavy rain.

What is the average lifetime of LED spotlights?

All LED bulbs have a general life expectancy of 50 000 hrs.

If you use your lights for 10 hours a day, this should be approx. 13.7 years for your LED bulb lifetime.

How to change the LED spotlight bulb?

If your spotlight fixture is constructed in such a way that the bulb can be removed, you can easily change bulbs when they stop working.

To do so, follow the next steps:

  1. Be sure to turn off the power.
  2. Install a ladder or a stable chair if your LED spotlight lamps are too high for you to reach.
  3. Put the gloves on.
  4. Screw out the old bulb from the socket and throw it away (it is easy to confuse an old and a new bulb.)
  5. Unpack your newly bought bulb.
  6. Press the new bulb into the socket and screw it inside.

Why LED spotlights glows when off?

In some cases LED spotlight bulbs to continue to glow even after you switch them off.

There are two main reasons why this situation can happen:

  1. The LED spotlight bulb stores energy. You can easily check this theory just by removing the bulb from the fitting immediately after turning it off. If the bulb continues to glow after you remove it, it is due to the luminescent layer or the LED driver.
  2. The glowing is caused by electrical installation. If the lamp goes out immediately when it is removed from the socket, the cause should be searched in the electrical installation. And in such case you have to check various parts of your fixture, like the light switch, dimmer, and all connections. Even an unreliable cable routing might be responsible for the glowing of the LED spotlight bulb.

LED spotlight vs floodlight: What is the difference?

The LED spotlight application can cast a narrow beam of light, which is usually no wider than 45 degrees.

This beam is more concentrated and easier to point and control, which can be used to light some difficult-to-access areas.

A floodlight can have a beam spread of up to 120 degrees.

It can illuminate a larger amount of space with the same wattage and lumen output as a spotlight.

However, its beam dissipates while working, which means that the actual amount of lumens on the square meter would be lesser.

What is the difference between LED spotlights, downlights, and panels?

Downlights and spotlights are quite similar in the case of appearance, but they still differ in some ways.

With the use of small LED fixtures as light sources, spotlights and downlights have evolved into separate fixtures.

However, you can name the spotlight as a downlight, because both such systems can shine vertically downwards (if you are looking on the fixture itself).

The difference lies in the light beam angle and the application use: spotlights have tighter beam angle and most often used for lighting of hard accessible areas.

LED panel lights are similar to downlights in the application.

But panels have a unique form: they are slim, low profile lights which produce uniform light distribution.

LED panel lights have the LED chips lining the edge of the fixture and directing the light towards the middle, with a reflector diffusing it downwards for a shadowless effect.

Are LED spotlights somehow harmful to human health and/or environment?

As it was said earlier in this FAQ, there are some concerns about “blue hazards” of LED lamps.

Another thing about LED bulbs lies in their so-called “blue pollution”: in short, cool-white LEDs can cause more light pollution than other light sources.

However, this could be said about the fixture with a color temperature above 3000K only. 

You can see the official scientific statement on the matter of blue pollution visiting this page.
