Practical Q&A

How to choose the color temperature and power of ceiling lights brands

Answer: According to the mainstream rough estimate of 70-80lm/w light efficiency, follow the recommendations to meet the basic brightness of the home without pressure.

Living Room:4-5W/square Meter Bedroom2-3w/square Meter
Restaurant, kitchen: 5-6W/square meter

In order to make the lighting effect more coordinated, it is recommended that the same type of lighting source in the same space use the same color temperature.

It is recommended that the color temperature of a ceiling light be no higher than 4000K.

today, almost all ceiling lights come standard with dimming, memory and other functions.

For the problem of over-brightness, it is more practical to buy stepless dimming for bedrooms than three-stage dimming.

How to choose a color rendering index

Answer: Of course, the higher the better, the ceiling lamp is a basic lighting fixture.

According to the national standard Ra>80, R9>0 can meet most home needs.

The CRI for many big brands still uses the national standard. Ceiling lamps with high color rendering can be used in studios and children’s bedrooms if you have a Sufficient budget.

Better light quality

High-quality light sources can indeed play a big role in specific scenes, such as painting, makeup and other tasks with high color requirements.

They are also more comfortable for daily use. This is why we buy high-color rendering lamps or full-spectrum lamps for grounding.

Reasons to be angry, not gimmicks such as “eye protection”.

If you care about color rendering index, purple LED is currently the first choice. It is characterized by a low spectral miss rate, a high color tolerance, a href=””>index, and /a>a gentle spectrum.

For example, the pictures below are both 4000K and Ra>96 high color rendering LED lamps. The difference can be clearly seen from the spectrum.

Some lights have a high apparent color index, but the color is still dim under the light.

Ra is the average value of R1 to R8.

This section primarily represents the reductionibility of light colours. As an example, the R12 color in the image below is only 70+.

If you really care about the CRI, don’t hold on to Ra.

You need to look at the spectrum, CRI, Rg/Rf, and color tolerance.

Red apples and red strawberries are commonly used by e-commerce companies to describe the CRI.

Buying purple LEDs is the easiest and most reliable solution.

Q: What are the common ways of emitting light from ceiling lamps? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

Answer: Direct lighting, light guide plate side lighting, linear silicone lampshade

Q: What are the advantages of light guide plate ceiling lamps over traditional ceiling lamps?

Answer: It’s thinner (about 2cm) than the ceiling lamp which is 10cm.

Comfortable. Compared with the direct downward emission of traditional ceiling lamps, the side emission of the light guide plate is softer.

More beautiful, simpler and more durable, and less likely to become outdated.

It’s more worry-free. It is a metaphysics, that ceiling lights will not let mosquitoes inside. It’s science that light-guided ceiling lamps won’t let mosquitoes in.

Richer means more expensive

Question: Which direct-emitting ceiling lamps have advantages over light guide plate ceiling lamps?

Answer: The direct-emitting light source/power supply is modular.

You can change the light source by yourself by removing the lampshade.

The maintenance cost is extremely low. Non-professionals cannot handle the light guide plate.

Linear silicone lampshade: The most commonly used method for linear surface ceiling lamps, which can create a linear feel and is slightly dazzling. The conventional lamp body thickness can range from 6cm to 8cm.

Q: How long is the service life of a ceiling lamp?

Answer: The service life of LED lamps from the brand is generally 15000h25000H+. According to the usage frequency of 8 hours a day, there is no pressure for more than 5 years. Lamps with high positioning are free of pressure for at least 10 years (with low light efficiency). I have said it a hundred times and come with it. Please buy brand-name lamps and lanterns for light sources. You must buy brand-name lighting sources, even if you are buying brand-name lanterns and lamps.

It is not dead light, but a product that does not meet the commonly used L70 standards.

How to choose the right size ceiling lamp for the living room

Answer: It is more appropriate for the lengthwidth of the lamp and the lengthwidth of the ceiling to be 1:5. If the living room measures 5M 3.5M, then the lamp size should be around 100cm70cm. This is only a guide.

Ceiling lamps are priced in the range of $100-$200.

Answer: Taking three bedrooms and two living rooms as an example, usually 2-3K is the mainstream budget. No matter how expensive the ceiling lamp is, it is either a brand premium, a difference in model, or an improvement in light source, material, workmanship, and function. It can be purchased as a set. You can save money by buying them together.

Many big brand ceiling lights are available online at very low prices. Can I buy them?

Answer: Of course you can. If you’re on a tight budget, running models from different brands are a good option. But don’t demand too much. Please top up if you are demanding a lot.


  • Volumetric energy stores and e-commerce competitors cannot even imagine it. Sales volume of 10W+ for a single model is common in e-commerce, but entities cannot even think about it. The profits of merchants are low because each brand has their own models that sell in large quantities. Even though they rely on lamps with high unit prices to make profit, some companies lose money or make money when big sales occur.

One lamp is produced on a single production line. Single product sales can start in the tens or hundreds of thousands. No matter how low the cost is, the mold opening cost spread equally to each lamp is almost negligible.

Does the quality of the product seem poor?


Today’s LED light source technology is very mature. The design service life is basically 15000H~25000H or more. If the light is used for 8 hours a day, the average maintenance frequency will not be less than 5 years, and the average defective rate will not be higher than 1%. The manufacturer is likely to lose money if the light is not maintained.

There is no problem with the light source as long as it is certified. Many ultra-cheap bulbs have a color rendering of more than 90. LEDs and driving powers supplies are already mature and very popular.

In terms of materials: it is indeed “saving”, but rarely “stealing”.

Q: The line-surface series ceiling lamps are much more expensive. What is the difference in price? Is it worth it?

Answer: The price difference is mainly due to the model. Small sales volume, high assembly costs, and high single-mode costs are all reasons for the high price. The lamp’s value is greater than the premium. From an aesthetic point of view, it is worth spending a few more dollars. Buy something that is visually pleasing.

Styles that are timeless will never go out of fashion

Answer: The more classic and simple the model is, the more attractive it will be. The more flashy and internet-famous the model, the shorter the life cycle. Styles of lamps change every year. You can’t decorate your house every year. Classic models are the best to buy. main direction.

Q: Any recommendations for brands of ceiling lamps?

The recommended price for a 3-family room is $1,200 (only for ceiling lamps with direct downward lighting).
If you care about cost-effectiveness (0.8-2K), please refer to major domestic circulation brands such as Opple, NVC, and Sanxiong.
Panasonic and Philips are good options if your budget is low (under 2K).
Choose Berman (5K) watch if you are looking for precision craftsmanship and comfort in light source.
If you want Mijia smart lights, yeelight is a good choice (around 2K)
The lipro series is a good choice if you are looking for a minimalist design with omni-spectral light. The entire series is made of purple LEDs (approximately 5K).

It is important to note that this lamp is not only cost-effective, but also a good one that anyone can afford.

NVC Small White Ceiling Lamp

For users who pursue higher standards, NVC also has ceiling-mounted ceilings from the Future Light series.

NVC future light

  1. The entire series comes standard with Ra98 high color rendering, CQS98, RG0 blue light level, and exemption level strobe.
  2. Bright, very bright. The whole series is bright. The living room lamp has a luminous flux exceeding 8000lm. It is possible to fill a 30 square meter living room with soft and bright light. Eye protection should consist of uniform illumination across a large area.
  3. The prism lens can reduce glare and spread light evenly. Even under such high brightness, it can still reach UGR <= 19.
  4. Light guide plate design, preventing mosquitoes is not a metaphysics but a science.
  5. The lamp body is slim, simple and versatile, and the metal ultra-thin lamp body has a delicate texture.
  6. All Mijia products are ecological, making it easier to combine with other eco-friendly products. The price/performance ratio has also increased compared to the same time last year.

2) lipro E2 ceiling lamp

Important upgrade

Continues to maintain the high quality “Ruran light” that is similar to sunlight.

Upgrade to the Mijia ecosystem based on Lipro Smart Home and HomeKit.

3Brightness upgrade, the brightness/power of the same type of ceiling lamp has been greatly improved, and it is “not dazzling”.

4Color temperature upgrade from 3000-4000K to 3000-5000K.

5 Dimming upgrade, optimized power performance, and smoother and more delicate dimming.

Material upgrade: The metal lamp body now has a better texture, and a stronger thermal conductivity.

7Quick installation upgrade, optimized quick installation base, making installation more convenient.

Readers who often read my articles know that I have been recommending this brand and have never been disappointed.

The light source from head to toe is purple LED, with low blue light, low color tolerance, high color fidelity, and high color rendering index CRI90+. Ra97+, the light source quality is undoubtedly top-notch.

HomeKit Mijia and Matter are finally here.

It’s true that I used to boast about him being an abortion expert, but now I can no longer call him such.

Each product is unique and designed with the user in mind.

The round ceiling lamp is only 2.16cm thick after installation.

The materials and craftsmanship are unambiguous from the inside to the outside. Although the price is not cheap, judging from the comprehensive products , the price/performance ratio is still there.

3) Berman rohm S1/A1/L1

I bought Rohm. It was really untimely. Just one month after receiving the goods, it was said that it had been upgraded to full spectrum.

I did not confirm with an official if it was a LED purple (I do not know if this is true). Ten thousand ants were floating in the sky, but Judging from the data I tested before, the light source has indeed improved a lot.

Now the official announcement is

Regardless of the light source, this lamp is also very good. The lamp is made of metal and has a lot of weight.

It is easy to tell that it’s a Berman Lamp at first glance.

It’s also easily recognizable. Berman also offers a 10-year warranty on performance, which is a very good thing in the lighting industry.

This is the first of its kind, and this is the attitude that an established international lighting company should have.

Both rectangular and round living room lights as well as bedroom lights are available

Honeywell ceiling light

This is not a new model. It’s listed with other models in the same range of prices for your convenience.

Bright, very bright, the ideal light living room lamp is 8000lm, the natural light (direct light) is up to 9000lm, oh my…

Ideal ceiling light is brighter but less powerful than natural ceiling lights.

-Lamps that have high color rendering are often forced to sacrifice brightness. Ideal light is side-emitting and has a lower utilization rate. High power and low brightness are normal.

It is also a very good lamp, and it is still highly recognizable. Here are the 13 grids of the brand.

Some people claim that taking pictures of Honeywell light fixtures with a smartphone can cause “water ripples”, and there’s a stroboscopic danger.

I will tell you this: No, no no. It is safe to use a stroboscope for measuring it. Mobile phone photography is not reliable. The photos I took with my phone didn’t have any “water ripples”.

The lamp is a good lamp, but I personally don’t like putting the logo on the luminous surface. The advertisement is a little forced.

5) yeelight light guide slim/mix

Yeelight is very familiar. Mijia’s eco-lighting section is dominated by this product. Its products have good value for money. Slim mix has arrived after the ultra-thin lamps of the first half year were reversible. It has all the functions that Mijia has.

Showdown: This lamp is very popular, and I am also riding on the popularity of this ceiling lights brands. I am too busy during this period and really don’t have time to do it. I will also use the cloud for the time being. It’s not bad to hear from my friends. According to yeelight’s urinary properties, there shouldn’t be any problem.

Let everyone identify it by themselves

Pick up missing items

If your pocket is tight, the high-volume models of various brands are almost the best solution, just buy indiscriminately with your eyes closed.

During big sales, they are all used to make money. The price-performance ratio is very high. A whole house is usually available for only a few hundred Yuan.

You can enjoy the quality and service of big brands at the price of other brands, but don’t ask for too much, especially Workmanship, please top up if you have high requirements.

The budget for the whole house is only 0.5K-1.5K, and there are high-volume models, cost-effective models, and high color rendering models. Here’s a link:

Simple ceiling lamp

This price is an approximate price for a three-bedroom flat

1) NVC Snow ceiling lights brands

Everyone calls him a little white light, Ra97 high color rendering, CQS98 high light source parameters

The lamp body is airtight, anti-mosquito and insect-proof

Back-plug quick installation, the whole lamp can be taken off for cleaning, and can be easily put back on, light and convenient

Mijia smart lights come with standard lighting in the bedroom and living room.

You can get the 5-light package for 1K+

2) yeelight Lingxi

A very classic model. The package price last year was 2K+. Last year, I tested ceiling light brands and found that the color rendering index (Ra95) was very high. According to the website, it has been upgraded to a “full spectrum”, Ra97. In theory, it is better than the original one. Even without upgrading the source of light, the price is still worth it.

This year, Lingxi launched a tri-proof back-mounted light. It’s up to you to choose. Here are some suggestions.

How do you select an individual?

Three male Aurora Haoyu within 2K or less

Ceiling lights are available in less than $1000. It’s very affordable and has a great light source. I have recommended this light to several Zhihu influencers through private messages and bought it. After using it, they all say it is good and the most important thing is that it is cheap.

If you still want to be cheaper, you can choose the cloud wing set for bedroom lights, which can be done for more than 1K for the whole house.

4) yeelight fiber jade (around 2K)

This lamp has been mentioned thousands of times. It is a very classic model of Yeelight. It used to have daylight algorithm, but it has been castrated long ago. The reduction of configuration is probably to widen the gap with the new model, so that the new model can be pushed away more easily. I have seen crowded For toothpaste, there really isn’t much to squeeze out.

The color rendering index is 90+, the materials are solid, and it comes standard with Mijia smart control, Atom switch, dimming and color adjustment, and the lamp is quite good.

A three-bedroom package with four lights cost just under 2k last year. It costs only a few thousand Yuan this year. That’s a savings of hundreds of yuan. It is still worth buying.

5) Philips Yixuan ceiling lamp (1K+)

The lampshade is minimalist, the alloy frame is made of solid materials, and with a luminous flux of 120W 8300lm, it is easy to handle more than 30 square meters with one lamp. The size of 970*650 is too large. The softer light under the same brightness is also the benefit of the large light-emitting surface.

Wide color temperature, the lowest color temperature is 2700K, the highest color temperature is 6500K.

CRI, Ra80+, passed.

Ultra-thin? The thin frame does not mean the thinness of the whole ceiling lights brands. The whole lamp is 9cm and the frame is 2.8cm.

intelligent? You can travel all over the world with one remote control. Fortunately, it has 4 preset lighting modes, including sleep mode and delayed lights off function, so you can finally find some comfort.

Why would you recommend this lamp to others?

What the picture shows is that it is durable and has low failure frequency. This is a model that’s cost-effective and comes from a well-established lamp manufacturer. Expect nothing fancy and no eye-catching features. This lamp is for those who are looking to simplify their lives, be pragmatic and worry-free.

Midea Natural/s (1.5K-3K+).

As you can tell from the name, the main selling point is the light source. A light source that can reach Ra98 is indeed good, but the blue saturation of R12 is in the upper 80s at any brightness and cannot reach 90.

The ceiling light brands are already good. The manufacturer just doesn’t want you to know. I’ll tell you, that’s all.

I think the main selling point of this lamp is not the quality of the light source, but the light guide plate. The light produced by this method is very uniform.

This lamp has good brightness, and the prism lens guides the light evenly, making it bright and not dazzling.

The S is designed to reduce the price. The S has a plastic casing, a lower brightness and smart control. If you want to be cheap, have a good light source, and don’t have any requirements for texture, choose S.
