Gooee created the world’s first full-stack operating system platform to connect lighting manufacturers to the IoT. One of their lighting systems includes LED bulbs, which has the impressive lifespan of over 20 years. Over the last few years, these bulbs have definitely made significant changes.

Rather than searching for the watts that you need, with Gooee’s LED bulbs, the brightness is determined somewhat differently. Though many people believe that the wattage is the brightness of the bulb, in reality it actually measures how much energy the bulb draws. For LEDs, the watts are not very helpful in determining how bright the bulb is since their job is to draw less energy. An LED bulb with 8 to 12 watts is actually comparable to a 60W incandescent bulb.

When choosing the best bulb for your convenience, it is important to find the right color. The popular colors available for LEDs are: soft white, warm white and bright white. Warm white and soft white both produce more of a yellow hue. Bright white bulbs will produce a whiter light, just like ones labeled daylight.

While the prices of LED bulbs are a bit more expensive than incandescent bulbs, you will be saving money in the long run. LED bulbs consume one-sixth of the energy of incandescent bulbs and they last up to 25 times longer. If you replaced a 60W with an LED equivalent, you will save about $130 in energy costs. Impressively, LED bulbs have taken it even further with Wi-Fi connected bulbs. This means you can operate your light from your smartphone. LED bulbs are definitely taking lighting to a whole new level.
