There are many different Smart Lighting Solutions on the market. At least a lot of them are a kind of "stand alone" solution, - just lighting. To create a future proof system for your home, you should choose something that easily connects with other home tech components and which you can upgrade and expand, when your system and your needs - go further. So here I have a comparison between two of the most popular lighting solutions:
Building codes usually require that a room, walkway, or building be equipped with a given minimum number of lux or footcandles. For example, the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America requires a minimum illuminance of 30 fc for kitchens. Most light fixtures are provided with information about their total lumen capacity as well as their wattage (W). Just because a lighting fixture has a higher wattage does not automatically mean that it also has a higher lumen capacity. Wattage is a unit of power, i.e., the amount of power required for the light fixture to provide its specified number of lumens. Lumens, meanwhile, remain a static quantity.
- Most floor lamps come as a combination of a separate lamp base and lamp shade. Choose your lamp shade very carefully, and if possible, try to look at it in daylight before buying it to see how good or bad it looks. Your floor lamp will act like any other show piece in your room during day time, so it is imperative that it looks good in daylight also while it is not in use. Needless to say, choose a lamp shade that complements the colors of your room.
Comment: Again, it's the lumen number for a space coming from the Rules in Part 1-The Basics that bridges the gap between your lighting interests and intentions and the folks who know a lot about lighting but not a lot about you. At its easiest, bring your lighting professional The Basics and The Math and the plan set.
