Sharp LED Ceiling Lights Give Consumers Greater Control Over Lighting
LED ceiling lights are often criticized for emitting a very bright, cold white light when put into a ceiling light fixture, unlike the warmer, softer light of incandescent bulbs. Developers at Sharp have taken steps to alleviate these concerns while designing six innovative new models of LED ceiling lights, which will be released in September in Japan.
Unlike traditional recessed ceiling lights, which are installed into a deep fixture in the ceiling, Sharp's new LED ceiling lights are only 1.7 inches thick at their thickest point, and less than a third of an inch thick at their thinnest. Three models of Sharp's LED ceiling lights, the C301V, the C302V, and the DL-C501V, allow users to customize their lighting by adjusting the color of the white light with a remote controller. These models also have functions to reduce light use during the day, including an Eco Light Rhythm function, which programs the lights to be a bright white in the morning and a soft warm white at night.
Although Sharp's three other models of LED ceiling lights, the DL-C201D, the DL-C301D, and the DL-C501D, do not allow consumers to adjust the light's color, all six of the models from Sharp do have buttons on the remote controller for dimming the lights as desired. All six models also save energy by sensing ambient light and dimming the LED ceiling lights accordingly.
