Essential Info

That Old Bulb is So 1870s

INSTEON LED Bulbs are award winning for a reason: packed into each bulb is both energy efficient power saving LED illumination as well as advanced INSTEON technology for complete remote control throughout your home. It's easy to control using INSTEON Switches and Keypads, INSTEON Wireless Remotes or via your smartphone when used with INSTEON Hub.

Enhanced with the INSTEON Hub

For the easiest control solution, pair an INSTEON LED Bulb with the INSTEON Hub. You can use your smartphone to configure multiple Bulbs and remotely control them directly from your mobile device, INSTEON Hub even gives you access to useful features like scheduling. Learn more about the INSTEON Hub.

Energy Efficient - Less Waste

Even with all of the advanced INSTEON technology packed into each LED Bulb, the INSTEON LED Floodlight Bulb for Recessed Lights uses a mere 12 Watts of electricity. But that doesn't mean your LED Bulb will be dull - every LED Floodlight Bulb is as bright as a 75W incandescent light.

INSTEON LED Floodlight Bulbs can last a long time - so long that you would need over 50 traditional light bulbs to match the lifespan of just one INSTEON LED Bulb. The energy efficient LEDs in each bulb are designed to last up to 52,000 hours. Compare that to just 1,000 hours with a tungsten light bulb.

Dramatic Energy Saving

20% of the average home energy bill is due to lighting. With each INSTEON LED Bulb using only 13% of the electricity of a regular incandescent, you can see how the savings can add up. And because INSTEON LED Bulbs put out less heat, you'll even save energy on cooling, too.

Energy costs calculated using the national average of 11¢ per kWh for electricity with a daily duration of 3 hours. Bulb life expectancy for tungsten incandescent based on the industry average of 1,000 hours. Savings may vary.

Color Temperature

But just as important as energy efficiency, we know how important the right color of light can be. Every INSTEON LED Floodlight Bulb is color calibrated to 2900K for that familiar warm glow.

Dimmable - Not All Light Bulbs are Created Equal

When it comes to lighting control, on and off just doesn't cut it. But the move to energy efficient light bulbs like CFLs and LED bulbs has generally meant that your lights can no longer dim. From the start, INSTEON LED Bulbs were designed for dimming*. In fact, you can fully brighten and dim INSTEON LED Bulbs from any INSTEON Wall Switch, Keypad, wireless Mini Remote or even your smartphone when used with the INSTEON Hub.

INSTEON Features - Our Shining Achievements

Every INSTEON LED Floodlight Bulb shares the same fantastic feature set as our best-selling INSTEON Dimmer Switch - you can customize the On Level and Ramp Rate of every LED Bulb and even create custom lighting scenes. And because every LED Bulb features INSTEON Dual-Band technology, they communicate wirelessly and over the power lines with the INSTEON network for the best reliability.

    Dissappointed -- Washington   4/29/2014
    Totally unusable. These lights emit a constant whine when not on full power. It's not loud but it is certainly audible. I thought about putting them in my hallway where people only pass through but it is just too loud, even there. On full power they have a great color but I paid a premium for dimming bulbs and they are unusable. Smarthome offered to refund immediately but honestly, I'm cautious about buying anything else now - I should have trusted the reviews.
    JOHN -- dallas, TX   2/2/2014
    I realized (after the fact) that my recessed lighting needed to accomodate a PAR38 bulb for this to work. I ordered a new fitting and am now using the bulb. It networked easily to my ISY and is working well. We are setting it at 25% against a brick fireplace.
    Stan -- Stan Diego   1/7/2014
    This gets Stan's seal of approval. This should be enough for you to make the purchase.
    Tony P -- Washington   12/9/2013
    The color is great. They're also brighter than the bulbs I replaced, so I went to set them to ramp up to only 70%. That's when I noticed every single one makes a quiet but audible whine when dimmed. The 2672-222 bulb has a note about a buzzing noise when dimmed, but not the recessed light, so I was hoping that was solved. Guess not. One of the four I purchased also has a slight flicker that is easily noticed when looking at a plain surface. I was going to replace all of the lights in my house with these, but now I'm not so sure.
    TIM -- louisville, KY   12/8/2013
    Product has worked without flaw since installation. Very bright an even clean looking light. I would recommend this to anyone.
    Michael King -- sacramento, California   12/7/2013
    I love insteon. I am a bit frustrated that the bulbs are the same approximate cost as the switches. I could put One switch in my kitchen to control three lights for $49 or buy three light bulbs for 49 per bulb. I recognize these are great for those places where you need one and don't want to wire in a switch. You keep bringing out new products and I will keep buying them. Just consider lowering your price point so I can buy more.

    Smarthome response: Thanks for the feedback, Michael. Most Smarthome customers have no problem swapping out a wall switch. For those leery of doing it themselves or not wanting the expense of hiring an electrician, these bulbs make sense. Also, for the more adventurous, they allow you to create zoned lighting if you have multiple bulbs on a single switch. As a standalone PAR LED bulb it is comparable to others on the market but as a remotely controllable bulb and one that is part of a whole home solution, there's just no comparison.
    CLIFFORD -- marina del rey, CA   12/5/2013
    Outstanding product. Bright, responsive.
    TARIKH -- long beach, CA   12/4/2013
    The item arrived quickly. Great build quality. The brightness and color of the bulb worked great for its application. The bulb was actually installed outside and has worked perfectly since installation.
    BRENDA -- indianapolis, IN   12/4/2013
    Great lamp. Very fast on and good ramp control. Works well with my isy994i. Only criticism is that it can be difficult to read the address which is printed on the cross-hatch pattern of the bulb.
