Lumens and LED Brightness Description
In traditional lighting knowledge, wattage is the standard measure of brightness for most, with higher wattage portraying a brighter bulb. Although we all know LED lights are a brighter replacement for fluorescent, incandescent, and halogen bulbs, and they require far fewer watts to produce that brighter light, we measure the brightness of LEDs in lumens.
3 Switch for 1 Bulb Brain Teaser Riddle
There is a lightbulb inside a closet. The door is closed, and you cannot see if the light is on or off through the door. However, you know the light is off to start.
Outside of the closet, there are three light switches. One of the switches controls the lightbulb in the closet. You can flip the switches however you want, but once you open the door, you can no longer touch the switches.

Lighting Facts – Understanding the label and choosing the right bulb
Finding the right light bulb for your home can seem difficult. You may notice that each bulb comes with a lighting facts label with different information about each bulb. This information is extremely valuable but not everyone fully understands it.
The Lighting Facts label is designed directly after the Nutrition Facts label and mandated by the Federal Trade Commission. With the information provided, we will help you to understand each part of the label so you can select the perfect light bulbs for your needs.
How Does Packaging Affect LED Lighting?
LED packages are simply the outer packaging, i.e. the assemblies that are home to LED chips. These are crucial LED components, allowing the actual light emitted to stay connected with the energy source, while safeguarded in a secure unit. Other purposes include shielding the LED chips and the wiring from any hazards in the surroundings, defending the chip using high quality phosphors and silicone resin, and ensuring continued flexibility and standardization of future lighting products.
There are a number of different LED packages used for modern industrial LED lights. And of course, each of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. If you are buying LEDs for your office, business premises, or factory settings, we can help you select the right LED bulb, along with the perfect packaging for your needs.
Using LEDs in Modern Lighting Designs
LED lighting fixtures are quickly gaining popularity, as people realize that they are a great choice for both residential and commercial settings. While there is no denying that LED lights are a tad bit more expensive than their traditional counterparts, it is also a fact that LEDs can cut electricity bills by up to 75%. Additionally, LEDs will need far less replacements due to better longevity and fewer maintenance needs. So that one-time expense doesn’t look so bad, does it?
