You probably know about all the advantages that LED lights have over conventional lamps - less energy consumption, less power costs, a much higher lifespan, the list goes on. You might have already switched to LED due to these reasons - good on you for taking that step! However, you might sometimes miss the cozy atmosphere that the lighting of your previous lamps created.
If that's the case, we might just be able to make your day. Did you know that (almost) all LED lamps and panels are dimmable? This means that you can recreate the same inviting, comfortable atmosphere you thought you've given up when switching to LED. Just read on to find out how you can achieve this.
1. Which types of LED lighting are dimmable - and which types are not dimmable (yet)?
First of all, good news. All of our LED panels are dimmable. The same goes for LED downlights, LED strips and for our filament bulbs. You only need to pay attention when buying an LED bulb: Not all of these are dimmable. In this case, consider opting for an RGB+CCT light. These are dimmable LED lamps which can not only be dimmed, but can also be changed in colour, which allows you to control the atmosphere of your room even better. Remember: Every RGB+CCT Light is dimmable, the other ones have to be checked for their dimmability beforehand.
2. The important part: How to dim your LED lamps
Now that you have ensured that your lamp is dimmable, you can learn how to actually dim your LED lights. Depending on your particular type of LED light, you might need a different set-up to connect your lamp to a dimming controller. In any case, you will need to obtain a dimmable driver and one type of remote control or an appropriate dimmable light switch.
Option 1: You possess a single-coloured type of dimmable LED lamp, e.g. a Standard Lumen LED Panel with 40W in the colour warm white. To dim this sort of light, you can choose between the following two drivers:
Option 2: You possess a RGB+CCT (multi-coloured) type of LED light, e.g. E27 LED Bulb RGB+CCT with 6W. In this case, you only need a controller to dim your lamp - no driver necessary! You can either opt for a remote or a wall control.
You cannot only adjust the brightness of these lamps (i.e. dim them), but also their colours - thus, up to 16 million different colours can be created. With an extra wifi module, you can also conveniently control your lamps via wifi and set the mood from everywhere in the building.
