    Warm LED lights reflect colours naturally, exactly like daylight

    Philips LED can bring your home to life. Just as the sun's true natural daylight brings colours to life, Philips LED provides that instantaneous warm glow to enhance your home interior.


    The ability of a light source to accurately reflect colours is expressed in the colour rendering index (CRI). The technology used in Philips LED lights, bulbs, and spots ensures a high CRI value, meaning that the colours in your interior are reflected truly and naturally.


    Scroll down to learn more about CRI, or view the wiki guide on colour rendering.


    What is the colour rendering index?


    The effect of a light source on colour appearance is expressed in the colour rendering index (CRI), on a scale of 0-100. Natural outdoor light has a CRI of 100 and is used as the standard of comparison for any other light source.



    The CRI of Philips LED lighting products is always higher than 80, close to the sun's value, reflecting colours truly and naturally.


    Lumen & wattage


    Lumen and wattage are important concepts to understand when considering the energy use of a light source. Simply put: a LED light uses far less energy (watt) to produce the same light output (lumen).


    An example: a LED bulb uses only 2.5 watts to produce a light output of 115 lumen, while a traditional bulb uses 15 watts (or 6 times more energy!) to produce the same lumen output.
