The United States Department of Energy estimates there are at least 500 million recessed downlights installed in U.S. homes, and more than 20 million are sold each year. And yet, consumers are often dissatisfied with the limitations of their lighting selections.

Introducing EVA™ BR30 - Lighting Transformed.

Designed by LEDified, the EVA™ BR30 is the worlds friendliest BR30 bulb. We combined the most efficient LED technology with an everyday practical element of a home: the remote control. Homeowners can now change the brightness and color of their lighting with the click of a button!

The original EVA™ downlight has proven to be a success in other parts of the world with over 50,000 units sold since August 2014. Now, with the launch of the BR30 bulb, homeowners across the U.S. can enjoy the unique yet simple functionality of EVA™ too!

Of course there are also traditional incandescent, halogen and CFL bulbs, but many of these options are being phased out around the globe due to being so power hungry or unsafe for the environment!

But across the board, there is one main consideration that lighting providers have not taken into account. You – the consumer! And more specifically, the way in which you use your lights. All too often, homeowners are stuck with lighting that does not meet their needs.

At LEDified we’ve learned that there are many situations in which you rely on your lighting, not just for practical purposes, but also for appropriate aesthetics. Below, you will find a few examples of how widely these needs can vary for the average homeowner, depending on the situation:

Eating at the dinner table - Warm, soft light

Reading - White, clear light

Watching TV at night - Warm, relaxed light

Enjoying your living room at night - Varies widely depending on the occasion

Using the bathroom at night - White bright or warm white

Walking through corridors at night - Warm or white depending on aesthetics

Using the garage at night - Bright warm or white light

Cooking in the kitchen - White bright light

The bottom line? Every day, multiple times of the day, the lighting needs of the average homeowner change! Whether you need to set the mood with a different color, or change the function of your space with a different brightness, your current lighting is simply not meeting your needs.

EVA™ BR30 in action with 4 different modes to choose from plus an advantage of being able to be used with a conventional dimmer.

With EVA™ BR30, all you need to do to change your environment is point and click!

Wipe-off 50% of energy use by changing all your EVA™ BR30 bulbs at the same time.

Or configure just the parts of your house you do not need the extra use of light.

Turn a complete warm relaxed environment into a clean neutral white space or vice versa

Or simply just make one part of your environment suit your needs.

The EVA™ BR30 may still be controlled via wall switches and dimmers, but they can also be controlled via the iDim™ remote control. The iDim™ platform allows you to fully optimize your environment, light by light.

EVA™ stands for Efficient, Versatile and Adaptable.

The EVA™ BR30 is one of the most efficient LED bulbs out there. It achieves a remarkable 80+ lumens per watt, whereas other traditional and some of the other even smarter wifi bulbs produce only 40-50 lumens per watt. That’s right: EVA™ is twice as efficient as the competition!

Furthermore, The EVA™ BR30 uses state of the art LED technology that gives it a lifespan of over 50,000 hours (meaning it may well last you the next 20 years!) as compared to a 3,000 hour lifespan for a traditional bulb.

LEDified is a company composed of some the leading minds in innovations, electronics and mechanical engineering. We developed the patent-pending iDim™ platform, allowing us to simplify the process of building a competitive smart lighting product.

What does this mean for the consumer? We don’t need to add on repetitive rounds of R&D to update our tech, thus allowing us to offer EVA™ suited to other countries at consumer friendly prices.

Plus, all future advancements in technology will result in automatic updates to the iDim™ platform and all iDim™ related lighting products.

Installation instructions included – Heads up, it is just as easy as changing a light bulb!

Simple dual mode toggle – Install with Dimmer Present (DP) or No Dimmer (ND) present

No need for any router or bridge setup

No master / slave complicated setup requirements

No app download required

No WIFI security issues – The iDim™ remote control uses infrared technology
