South Melbourne, Australia, SEP 8, 2014 – After 9 months of developments, LEDified launches its new generation LED downlight called EVA. EVA stands for efficient, versatile and adaptable and solves the many issues of consumers today in choosing the right light for their home. With EVA, consumers now can buy an LED downlight and configure its colour and brightness to the many different applications it is used for in a home.

EVA is the only downlight available in Australia that can be manipulated using a remote control. Other alternatives require WIFI or complex wiring. EVA’s remote control options include a 5W mode which emits similar lumens to a 35W halogen and a 10W mode which emits similar lumens to a standard 50W halogen downlight. She can also be changed from a warm white (2700K) to a neutral white (4000K) colour temperature. The anticipated energy savings with EVA as compared to a standard halogen downlight can be as much as 91%.

Consumers have the choice of buying EVA and installing her themselves or opting for the full service installation package direct from LEDified. Selected households in Victoria can receive free installation from an A grade electrician as part of a government incentive under the VEET scheme provided they have existing 50W halogens to be replaced. The iDim remote controller is provided for free for every 10 EVAs purchased. EVA can be purchased online direct from LEDified for $49.

“EVA was developed to tackle all of the issues surrounding inefficiencies in downlights and the available technology attempts made until now. We had to think outside the box to find the answer.” – Matthew Ng, CTO of LEDified and co-inventor of EVA.

LEDified is a Victorian based lighting company with a 100% focus in LED lighting. The company started in 2012 and has since made fast strides by picking up large contracts for Crown Casino, Coles, BMW, Bendigo Stadium, Aspen Pharmaceuticals, JB Hifi and many others. The business employs over 120 staff in its headquarters in South Melbourne and provides regular work to over 250 electricians state-wide.

“The introduction of EVA as an option to the market will provide consumers with more flexibility and confidence in upgrading to LED lights.” – Mathew Delaney, Head of Installation of LEDified and Eco-Smart Certified Electrician.

LEDified is accredited under the Victorian Energy Efficient Target scheme and has helped over 15,000 homes in Victoria reduce their lighting costs by replacing halogen downlights with energy saving LED downlights. The company also holds the largest market share of residential and commercial lighting upgrades under the scheme since 2012.

How EVA™ Will Transform Lighting

As a matter of fact, lighting has come a long way; from the 19th century incandescent lamps, to the 20th century fluorescent, halogen and sodium lamps, and to the 21st century LED electronically driven lamps. Each of these transformations has all along been geared toward achieving efficiency in lighting. EVA™ is one technology which has come into being to transform lighting to be even more efficient, as the industry phases out the incandescent light bulbs in this era. Mathew Ng, the Co-Inventor of EVA™ says that the reason for coming up with this technology was to address all the issues surrounding inefficiencies in the existing lighting technological attempts made so far. “We had to think outside the box to get the answer”, Matthew says.

Benefits of EVA™ over other lighting

One of the objectives of phasing out the traditional incandescent lights is to enhance efficiency in energy consumption. EVA™ addresses this issue as it ends up saving well above 89% of energy. One of the causes of the inefficiency of traditional lighting is due to the heat they produce to the surrounding, that is, much of the energy is converted to heat instead of light output. With EVA™, this is not the case as the lighting gives out up to 85% less heat compared to incandescent lighting; this implies a much cooler ambience. Perhaps the worst lighting experience that anyone of us may wish to go through is replacing the bulb or lamp every now and then; this is not so with EVA™ as it is built to have a lifespan of about 20 times longer than that of ordinary lighting. It is also built to withstand shock hence more durable. With the goodness that any technology brings, our safety and that of the surrounding is crucial, EVA™ takes care of this as it does not emit UV, lead or mercury. One of the qualities of good lighting is having a great Color Rendering Index, CRI; EVA™ gives a better color clarity and spread or beam angle compared to the traditional lighting.

Distinct features

EVA™ is a unique LED downlight (also know in some countries as “potlight” or “canlight”). Its elegancy is not compromised by its simplicity; it makes use of smarts and a remote control, the iDim™ controller. The highly advanced technology enables you to alter the output of light to what you want it to be, whenever you feel like. You can opt to switch its output from 10W (800 – 850 Lumen) to 5W (400 – 425 Lumen), something that makes it more efficient through a further 50% save on energy on top of the enormous energy savings associated with the LEDs.

The technology also allows for manipulation of color; you can opt for a soft, warm white, 2700K or a crisp neutral white, 400K, to alter the mood based on your application. Its versatility allows for use in a number of Triac dimmers for dimming controls. Also, its adaptability ensures it can fit in most standard cutouts, for convenience when switching from your traditional to EVA™ lighting.

In conclusion, EVA™ is here to transform lighting for better. Feel free to get more information at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/463309609/evatm and support us realise the project.
