LED Downlight Kits

Colour-changing, or 'RGBW', downlights are capable of producing any colour desired and are therefore invaluable for creating the right 'mood' for any space. For normal use, the downlights provide strong, vivid white light. However, when the occasion demands, dining and social areas can be made more inviting by warm sunset colours, and cooler hues, such as blues and whites, give the feeling of upmarket, contemporary living. Our standard downlight is the CR90RGBW. This is a low cost, high quality downlight that uses class-leading CREE MC-E LEDs mounted on a UK manufactured light engine.

Our RGBW LED downlight kits are a great way to achieve beautiful areas of colour, and come in a choice combinations to offer you maximum control; multi-zone DMX and 'Dream' SPI as explained below:-


Multi-zone DMX

This enables you to create zones of different colours with the downlights, so that you can create contrast and interest. This also allows RGBW downlights to be connected, giving bright, usable white light for normal use.

Dream SPI

The ideal solution for entertainment spaces as each light is individually controlled allowing stunning colour sweeps etc. Each kit is available with a range of control options and is completely expandable.

Every downlight kit is supplied with between two and ten N-Sync NS80 9W LED Downlights. The NS80RGB downlights are fitted with top-class CREE LEDs and matched precision optics, and will give many years of trouble-free service with minimal running costs.

Other downlights are available, please email for details.

DMX Multi-Zone RGB LED Downlight Kit

This kit allows you to have control over multiple lighting zones to give much more interesting uses of colour. In a bar, for example, the dining area could be set to a very warm, intimate orange and the drinking area could be set to an electric blue. All the control options have interface software so you can program the colours and effects precisely to your requirements. Each kit is supplied with two DMX decoders and two RGBW 9W LED downlights, giving control over two zones. At the checkout, you can add further downlights. You can also add floor lights, flexible striplights etc. Please email your requirements to and we'll quote you straight back.

Dream SPI LED Downlight Kit

Capable of the most stunning sequencing and fading effects this kit is the basis of a very sophisticated lighting system. The kit is based on the Nicolaudie GU2 glass touch screen DMX controller and is supplied with four N-Sync NS80SPI downlights. Each light contains a serial-peripheral (SPI) interface that allows individual control over each light in the chain. The lights address themselves automatically so there is no complicated setup process. The controller is supplied pre-programmed with 16 scenes that include static colours, sequences and colour change modes. The kit is expandable upto 42 downlights.

If you want to create your own effects the software 'Easy Standalone' is designed to make life easy. By plugging the controller into the USB port of a PC, scenes can be easily created or modified. The software can be downloaded free here and there is a demo mode so you can experiment with it before buying.
