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.

Nowadays, almost all ceiling lamps come with dimming and memory functions as standard, so there is no need to worry.

It is better to purchase stepless dimming in bedrooms rather than three-stage dimming, if you are experiencing a problem with over-brightness.

Question: How to choose 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. We buy full-spectrum or high-color-rendering lamps to ground.

There are many reasons to be angry. Avoid gimmicks like “eye protection”

Purple LEDs are the best choice if you’re concerned about color rendering index. It is characterized by a low spectral miss rate, a high color tolerance, a href=””>index, and /a>a gentle spectrum.

The pictures below show both high color rendering LEDs with Ra>96 and 4000K. Spectrum shows the difference.

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

This is probably because only Ra is marked, and Ra is the average of R1-R8.

This part mainly represents the reducibility of light colors. 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.

E-commerce companies often use red apples and strawberries to describe CRI.

Not reliable, the simple and reliable way is to buy purple LED.

Q: How do ceiling lamps emit light? What are the pros and cons?

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 is thinner, about 2cm, compared to the traditional ceiling lamp, which is about 10cm.

More comfortable. The side-emission of the light guide is more comfortable than the direct downward emissions of traditional ceiling lights.

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.

More expensive means you are rich

What are the advantages of direct-emitting lamps over light guide plates?

Answer: The power supply and direct emitting light source are modular.

By removing the lamp shade, you can easily change the source of light.

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 thickness of the conventional lamp body can be about 6cm.

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. For lamps with high positioning, there is no pressure for 10 years+ (usually with low light efficiency). Come on, I’ve said it 100 times. Please buy brand-name lamps and lanterns for light sources. Even if they are brand-name lamps and lanterns, you must purchase brand-name light sources.

The commonly used L70 standard, that is, the time it takes for the light to decay to 70% is considered a defective product, not a dead light.

Question: How to choose the size of the ceiling lamp in the living room?

Answer: The ratio between the length width and the heightwidth should be 1:5. If the living room measures 5M 3.5M, then the lamp size should be around 100cm70cm. This is only a guide.

Question: What is the mainstream price range for ceiling lamps?

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. Don’t buy them separately, you can save a lot.

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. E-commerce is accustomed to selling 10W+ of a model, but the entities are not even aware of it. Each brand has its own high-volume models to gain attention, and merchants’ profits are very low. , even lose money and make money during big sales, relying on high unit price lamps to make profits.

Large quantities lead to advantages, single product sales often start at tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands, and one production line only produces one lamp. The cost of opening the mold is negligible, no matter how low it is.

Is the quality poor?


Today’s LED light source technology is very mature. The design service life is basically 15000H~25000H or more. The average maintenance interval will be no less than five years if the light is used 8 hours per day. And the average defect rate will be no more than 1%. Otherwise, the manufacturer Likely to lose money.

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 power supplies are too mature and popular.

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

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

Answer: The main reason for the price difference is due to model. The high price is due to a small sales volume, high costs of assembly, and costs for single mode. 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 shorter the lifespan of models that are popular on the internet and flashy will be the more the model is known. 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).
You can choose from major brands in domestic distribution such as Opple NVC and Sanxiong if you are concerned about the cost-effectiveness of your product (0.8-2K).
If the budget is not bad (around 2K), please refer to Panasonic and Philips
If you care about precision workmanship and light source comfort, choose Berman (5K watch)
If you want Mijia smart lights, yeelight is a good choice (around 2K)

NVC Full Spectrum

NVC has a very rich product line. It has upgraded its light sources in recent years. From ceiling lamps, downlights, to floor lamps/table lamps, Ra97+ high-quality light sources with high color rendering can be seen everywhere.

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

Ideal Light (Guanghua), for example, is a series of downlights from NVC.

The deep cup design is not only a glare-free solution, but it also provides a 90deg beam angle for optimum illumination.

  • The color rendering index is nearly 98.
  • The key is more than 40 yuan, which is very cost-effective.

NVC Small White Ceiling Lamp
The 5-light package is available for 1K+. It is a Mijia smart ceiling lamp with Ra97 high color rendering, CQS98 high light source parameters, airtight lamp body, and anti-mosquito. (will be discussed later)
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. Even a 30-square-meter living room can easily be filled with bright and soft light. “Eye protection” should be uniform illumination over a wide 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 metal lamp body has an ultra-thin, delicate texture and is simple, versatile and slim.
  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.

Brightness upgrade: The brightness/power has been improved and the lamp is now “not dazzling”.

Upgrade to a 4Color temperature from 3000-4000K up to 3000-5000K

Upgraded dimming, with improved power performance and a smoother, more delicate dimming.

6Material upgrade, the metal lamp body has better texture and stronger thermal conductivity.

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

My readers who read my articles often know that I always recommend this brand, and they have never been let down.

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.

I’m talking about him alone today because HomeKit, Mijia, and Matter have finally arrived.

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.

After installation, the round ceiling light is only 2.16cm in thickness.

Materials and workmanship are clear from the inside out. The price may not be cheap but the quality of the products and the price/performance ratio are still good.

Berman Rohm S1/A1/L1

I bought Rohm. It was a real snafu. It was not timely.

I didn’t confirm with the official whether it was a purple LED (I don’t know if it was true). The sky was filled with ten thousand ants, but judging by the data that I had tested previously, it is clear that the light source in use has improved significantly.

Now the official announcement is

This lamp works well regardless of the source. It has an all-metal body and is full of weight.

You can tell it is a Berman lamp at a glance.

It’s also easily recognizable. Moreover, Berman has launched a 10-year performance warranty, which is very good in the lighting industry.

It is the first time that a lighting company of international standing has taken this approach.

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

4) 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…

Someone asked, compared with natural ceiling lights brands, ideal light has higher power but lower brightness?

-Lamps with high color rendering often have to sacrifice brightness. Ideal light is side-emitting and has a lower utilization rate. It is normal for high power and low brightness.

It is also a very good lamp, and it is still highly recognizable. The brand’s 13 grids are also displayed here.

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. Photographing with a mobile phone is unreliable. I didn’t see any “water ripples” in the photos taken with my mobile phone.

The lamp itself is good, but personally I don’t care for the logo being on the surface of the lamp. It feels a bit forced to watch an advertisement.

5) yeelight light guide slim/mix

Yeelight is very familiar. It is the mainstay of Mijia’s ecological lighting section. Its products have good value for money. After the ultra-thin ceiling lamps in the first half of the year were overturned, slim mix is here. It has all the functions that Mijia has.

Showdown: I’m also riding the popularity of these ceiling lights brands. I’m too busy to do this during this time. I will also use the cloud for the time being. The feedback from friends is not bad. According to the urinary properties of yeelight, it should be No big deal.

Everyone can identify themselves

Pick up missing items

When your budget is limited, buying high-volume models from various brands can be the most cost-effective solution. Just buy them blindly and without thinking.

All of them are used to generate income during big sales. Price-performance ratios are 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.

Budget for the entire house is 0.5K to 1.5K. There are models with high volume, models that are cost-effective, and models with high color rendering. Here’s a link:

Simple ceiling lamp

The price refers to the approximate price of a three-bedroom apartment

Brands: NVC Snow ceiling light

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

The lamp can be removed for cleaning and then easily re-installed. It is 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 (within 2K)

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

Lingxi has launched a back-mounted tri-proof light this year. You can choose. Here are a few suggestions.

How do you select an individual?

Three male Aurora Haoyu within 2K or less

The main ceiling lights brands is less than 1K. 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. They all said it was good after using it and that the price is also important.

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) jade fiber yeelight (approximately 2K).

This lamp has been mentioned thousands of times. This is a classic Yeelight model. It used to have daylight algorithm, but it has been castrated long ago. It is likely that the reduction in configuration was done to create a larger gap between the old and new models, so the new one can be easily pushed aside. 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.

Last year, a three-bedroom, four-light package cost just over 2k. 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 970*650 size is too big. 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 frame thickness does not equate to the overall thinness of ceiling light brands. The frame is 2.8cm thick and the whole lamp measures 9cm.

intelligent? With one remote, you can travel the globe. 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?

The picture shows that the lamp is very durable with a low failure rate. It is a cost-effective model from a long-established lamp company. 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.

6) 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.

Overall, the ceiling lights brands source is already very good. The manufacturer just doesn’t want you to know. I’ll tell you, that’s all.

The light guide plate is the most important selling point for this lamp, not the quality light source. This method produces a very uniform light.

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. It has a plastic shell, 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.
