the difference

- Oct 30, 2018-

Many people are not easy to distinguish between downlights and spotlights. In home decoration, downlights and spotlights have different uses. Simply put, downlights are lamps that are more concentrated than ordinary light fixtures. Generally used for general lighting or auxiliary lighting. A spotlight is a highly concentrated luminaire that emits light with a specific target. Mainly used for special lighting, such as highlighting a very flavorful or very innovative place. We distinguish the characteristics of the two lamps from the source, the application location, and the price comparison.

1, the light source

The downlight can be equipped with an incandescent bulb or an energy-saving lamp. When the incandescent lamp is installed, it is yellow. Light lamp with energy saving lamp

The bubble type can be white light or yellow light. The direction of the light source of the downlight is not adjustable. From the picture below, we can directly see the energy-saving lamps of the downlights, while the waterproof downlights are equipped with a waterproof glass cover.

2, application location

The downlights are generally installed in the ceiling. Generally, the ceiling needs to be installed above 150mm. Of course, the downlights are also external. It is a good choice to install a downlight in the area without a ceiling or chandelier, and the light is softer than the spotlight.
