How LED lights are classified?

LED commercial lighting can be classified according to the mode and illumination. Different LED lights are applied in different spaces, and of course, their function is also different. Now, please follow Pro.Lighting to see how LED Lighting is sorted by scene Lighting.

Choosing a reasonable way of lighting plays an important role in improving lighting quality, increasing economic benefits and saving energy, and is also related to the overall artistic effect of building decoration.


Overall lighting

Commercial lighting can be divided into overall lighting and accent lighting (spot lighting), overall lighting is called General lighting. That is meant to spread the light to the whole area or space equally, irrespective of the other sources of lighting available. It illuminates all parts of an area without shadows. It used to be done with multiple fluorescent tubes but is now done with multiple LED light fittings.


Direct lighting

lighting in which the greater part of the light goes directly from the source to the area lit. Direct lighting refers to lights or fixtures that point directly at the subject or space with no diffusion or bouncing off of other surfaces. These are typically fixtures that direct the light downward onto a surface below. If you stare up at a fixture and see the bulb, then you’re looking at a source of direct light. Recessed lighting and track lighting are the most common fixtures for this application.

Less light distribution on the top, more light distribution on downward.

When to use Direct?

A direct lighting fixture is ideal for a range of purposes where focused illumination is required. Direct lighting can be seen in many forms such as overhead general lighting solutions to task lighting aimed at a specific workspace. The main goal of direct lighting is to provide strong illumination to aid in visibility of tasks or create a bright general lighting plan.


Indirect lighting

Also known as reflective lighting, most often refers to fixtures that bounce light off of a surface or highlight a specific design feature without pointing the light straight at the object. Up-lights that sit above eye-level to highlight an interesting ceiling feature is an excellent example of indirect lighting.


When to use Indirect?

While you may end up with some unintentional indirect lighting, depending on the type of fixture and where it’s placed, indirect lighting can also be a conscious choice you decide to use in a space. The most common application of indirect lighting is for the purpose of ambiance lighting. It can also be used to help balance out the stark lines of light and general harshness of brighter direct lighting solutions. It is a great source for adding more lumens to a room without creating harsh effects of adding additional direct lighting solutions.


Accent lighting

Used to emphasize a particular object or part of an object of attention. It is usually used to emphasize a particular part or arrangement of a space.

Focuses light on a particular area or object. It is often used to highlight art or other artifacts. Common types of accent lights include wall lights, floodlights, recessed lights, or track lights. The brighter light from the accent lamp creates visual interest to a room. Accent lights may also be used in practical applications to shine light on a stairway, such as in movie theaters, or to light walkways.


It's important to do accent lighting right, which means doing it subtly. Make people notice the object you're lighting, not the way that it is being lit.


Therefore, by classifying LED lamps into different categories, we can choose suitable lamps according to different situations, which will make our life more and more convenient.
