A Partner in the Evolving LED Industry

LED OFFERINGS: For more than 118 years, UL’s state-of-the-art laboratories have been providing innovative safety, performance and global market access solutions for the entire lighting industry supply chain. UL’s LightSmart™ app aims to educate consumers, lighting designers and lighting showrooms about the energy-efficiency consequences of different replacement lamps. The app features halogen, compact fluorescent and LED replacement lamps with incandescent lamps as the basis for comparison.  

HELPING LIGHTING SHOWROOMS BY offering LightSmart, the only app on the market that enables users to take a photo of a room and preview in real-time how it will look with different lighting choices. Users can change the color temperature of the lighting from soft white to the cool blue of LEDs, as well as change the lumen output to see how ”bright” they want a setting before making a purchasing decision on the best value in replacement lamps.

THE LATEST INTROS: The newest addition to LightSmart in 2013, the ROI feature, enables consumers and showrooms to input the current price of an LED replacement lamp and see how long it will take to pay back the investment, as well as how much they will continue to reap in annual savings on their energy bill.

UP NEXT: Expect to see lighting controls play an increasingly important role in reducing overall lighting costs.
