About LED Downlights
Also known as can lights and pot lights- LED Downlights are those small light fixtures that are recessed in the ceiling in such a way that they emit light in the downward direction. You can have recessed downlight installed in a lot of places where you wish to achieve general coverage of light. The most popular applications for these LED lights are bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, living areas, and the study.
Since dimmable LED downlights do not consume a lot of roof space, recessed spotlights are also used in offices to have an enhanced look of ambient lighting throughout. Moreover, a high CRI (color rendering index- one that helps perceive colors as they actually are) of 90+ ensures customers at clothing stores buy the exact color as they see. Such great CRI also makes these lights suitable for accent lighting, general lighting, and task lighting.
Downlight fixtures with at least IP44 ratings are required for areas that are near water, such as in the bathroom, shower rooms in the indoors, and in the outdoors in case you install them near the swimming pool.
They are installed at heights where the ceiling height is relatively much lower than average ceiling height. These lights do not emit any kind of UV and IR free light rays that otherwise are harmful especially when exposed for a more extended period of time

Other Features of LED Downlights
Mostly LED Downlights come with a dimmable feature; that is, you can dim the light brightness to a lower level when high brightness is not really needed and vice-versa. Dimmer switches are preferred over the conventional switches because dimmer switches give us the flexibility to adjust the intensity of the fixtures as per the need, whether you want working or entertainment ambiance.
