Myth One: “LEDs give Ugly Light”
Some spectrums of LED have received negative feedback due to their stark intensity but new lighting advances have generated a full visible light spectrum, meaning LEDs now also have warmth and softer overtones.
Myth Two: “LEDs will increase consumption of rare materials”
While LED’ do use rare materials like indium, they are used in such infinitesimal amounts that if the world were to switch to LEDs, the consumption of rare materials would decrease dramatically.
Myth Three: “LEDs have low light output”
Since their first use in smaller products LEDs have proven to have incredible output potential, such as the headlights seen in the Audi A1, and will in the future only increase in density, brightness and light output capability.
Myth Four: “LED retrofit lamps don’t work”
Retrofit LED lamps are only a problem when installed incorrectly. A highly qualified professional they will be able to assess your needs and fit your LEDs perfectly in a retrofit fixture without the LEDs overheating, lickering or any of the other problems seen when cheaper retrofitting is implemented.
Myth Five: “LEDs colour shift with time”
Colour shifting was a problem in the early days when cheaper materials were used, but current LED’s can run for 25,000 hours or more before even a slight variance in colour can be detected.
Myth Six: “LEDs can’t run hot”
The problem with heat in LEDs arises due to the LED chip and package construction. This has become less problematic over time as better materials are utilized in LED production.
Myth Seven: “LEDs have high glare”
Quality LEDs are a less wasteful source of light and actually produce four times less glare than a standard halogen light.
Myth Eight: “LEDs are best left to China”
LED light manufacturing actually requires a deep technical understanding of their complexities to produce a superior product that can live up to its reputation. This means their classification as a mass produced commodity is incorrect.
Myth Nine: “LEDs are expensive”
Many people don’t realise the reimbursement they will receive when using LEDs which use less energy, and have to be replaced less frequently than standard light bulbs. LED’s pay back their purchase tenfold.
Myth Ten: “LEDs are dangerous”
LED light is only dangerous if one was to, as per the conditions of the experiment proclaiming LEDs to be dangerous, stare into a bulb for twelve hours from four inches away. Otherwise they are perfectly safe for any and all lighting.

Dear Jolene, Thank you to you and your team at Amlec for all the kind assistance and prompt attention during at all times. Every one of you have certainly gone above and beyond the call of duty. It was always a relief to know that I was going to get assistance and guidance during the many times that I could not reach the heirs to intervene. The service was sterling. I am however grateful that this transfer has been concluded

Hi Shonelle, Thanks for the message, much appreciated. I do hope that Barry will be able to sort out what is happening as the Olarm in principle is great and I’ve been very happy dealing with the Amlec control room and armed response teams. The control room people you have are really great and have been very patient and professional, even though this must be quite frustrating for them as well, and it is a huge relief to finally have an armed response time which is acceptable! Looking forward to feedback when available. Kind regards, Kate Watts
