If you want to spend your time comfortably and comfortably, the IoT-compatible ceiling light is the best choice!
So when it comes to actually buying a ceiling light, what are the points of these two choices? Here, we will look at the types of LED ceiling lights and the size of the room.
[Ceiling light comparison point ①] Room size and brightness
Required brightness (unit: lumen)
~ 4.5 tatami
~ 6 tatami mats
~ 8 tatami mats
~ 10 tatami mats
~ 12 tatami mats
~ 14 tatami mats
Reference: The above brightness is required according to the size of the room according to the applicable tatami mat number display standard in the residential catalog of the Japan Lighting Industry Association . If you want to select only by brightness, you should use this table as a reference.
[Caution on how to choose]
LEDs are characterized by their high straightness, and depending on the installation location, the corners of the room may become dark. If you want to brighten the entire room, you need to consider the installation location or install two.
[Ceiling light comparison point (2)] Type / design
|Type / design||feature|
|Standard||The most common type of disc type. If you want to make your room look cleaner, there is also a thin flat type.|
|Spotlight||A type that attaches a bar to the ceiling and attaches 2 to 4 spotlights to it. Depending on the orientation of the shade, you can change the brightening location.|
|Japanese style||It is a square type that can be installed in a Japanese-style room without any discomfort.|
|With fan||A type in which a ceiling light and a fan are integrated. In addition to its high design, it can also be expected to function as a circulator.|
Ceiling lights have the image of a Western-style room such as the living room and dining room, but in reality they are not the only ones. Recently, there is also a type that matches the Japanese-style room, and you can use it properly depending on the type of room.
In particular, many LEDs have toning and dimming functions such as light bulb color, warm white, and neutral white, and can be adjusted according to time and mood. Therefore, instead of deciding the design of the ceiling light according to the room, it may be a good choice to choose a ceiling light that has “many choices of dimming colors” so that it can be applied to any room. I don’t.
So far, we have introduced the points of selection depending on the size, brightness, and type of room. On top of that, the most recommended ceiling light now is “IoT compatible”. There are two reasons for this.
1. You can switch on and off with your smartphone
Many IoT-compatible ceiling lights are linked to smartphone apps, and can be switched on and off from outside. It can be expected to be highly effective not only to prevent forgetting to turn it off, but also to prevent intruders when they are away.
2. Some can be linked with smart speakers and TVs.
Although I have a taste, music is one of the indispensable things for living alone.
In that respect, some ceiling lights that support IoT are linked to or installed with Bluetooth speakers.
