Product Overview

Easily convert a standard 6 in. incandescent recessed housing into an energy-efficient floodlight with the Philips LED Retrofit Downlight. Class-leading light distribution comes courtesy of a patented faceted optic diffuser, throwing off a soft, wide beam ideal for general room lighting in kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms or anyplace where exceptionally long-life, bright lighting is desired. Using just 9 watts of power, this lamp draws 86% less energy than a standard 65 watt BR30 incandescent flood bulb while producing 620 lumens of light output. It's equipped with integrated trim and a medium-base socket adapter that allows you to quickly replace the bulb and trim of your existing housing for a sleek, contemporary upgrade. Fully dimmable, it retains its soft white color temperature (2700K) even when brightness is throttled back.

  • Brightness: 620 lumens
  • Estimated yearly energy cost: $1.08 (based on 3 hours/day, 11¢/kWh; cost depends on rates and use)
  • Life: 40,000 hours or 36.5 years (based on 3 hours/day)
  • Light appearance: 2700K (soft white)
  • Energy used: 9 watts (equivalent to a 65 watt standard incandescent light bulb)
  • Suitable for use in type-IC recessed housings (housing may be covered with insulation)
  • Dimmable with electronic Low-Voltage (ELV) dimmers
  • Meets minimum federal efficiency standards for Energy Star certification
  • LED technology is a prudent choice for hard-to-reach fixtures, as its long life expectancy keeps replacement chores to a minimum

Lutron CL rated dimmer. Essentially you will need a dimmer that is CL rated or LED rated, CL being the more common terminology. There will be an adjustment wheel or slid piece on the front of the dimmer which is used to set your "low end trim", this prevents the light from flickering when you dim it or turning off.

LED works much differently than incandescent. With typical dimmer you reduce the wattage as you dim, LED you are reducing the amount of pulses per second.
I have seen LED products work with incandescent dimmers, it will however diminish the lifespan of the LED product and will not allow for full dimming range.
To set the low level trim turn the switch on and put the dimmer to its lowest point. Then turn the wheel or adjustment piece clockwise until the light is on and not flickering

Answer: 
While not positive that it will I would buy one and check. Most retrofit kits come with two places for the friction clips or ears and can be moved in or out for 5" & 6" housings.
Another option is making some slight field modifications, you know that the trim will cover the hole as 6" is bigger than 6" so at that point it is just a matter of figuring out how to get it in there.

Hey awong,
No where in the specs did I see that this could fit a 5 inch recessed housing, but I did see another that could.
This version is sold at your local Home Depot and can work in 5 inch housings, below is the link:

Can I wire this direct to a 110 connection instead of using the medium base adapter?

Asked by
Biddeford, Maine

July 21, 2014
I'm thinking of buying several of these and putting them into a basement space, but I'd be looking to wire them directly into a 110 loop. So I'd cut off the socket adapter and wire it direct with wire caps. I've never worked with LED before, so I'm just confirming that it will accept a direct 110 connection.

Also, does it include any kind of mounting bracket? I'm thinking probably not as it's intended to be mounted in a standard recessed 6" recessed can.

Thank you.

Yes you can wire them to a switched or dimmer controlled circuit. Just cut the screw-in adapter off and wire nut the light directly to the hot wire (black wire) and the neutral (white wire). It's best to turn the circuit off first because the small arc created if hooked up hot could fry the electronics controlling the led.

Answer: 
Yes, you can hard wire the unit. There is a inline male/ female connector that removes the light bulb base adapter. You could simply cut off the bulb base adapter and hard wire the cut ends to the hot and neutral, then connect the fixture using the inline connector - very easy to do .

Answer: 
LED's produce no heat. The cans should be sealed to prevent insulation from getting into you home anyway. I have blown insulation, and never went into the attic for any part of the installation of these light.

As to replacement bulbs - the product package does not offer such and the way the product is designed it seems to be 'hard wired' into the face plate - check the Phillips.com website

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 56 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by not as expected face of the lamp is textured; which is different from most LED retrofits, that are plain white. Since i had already installed plain white throughout my house, these different glass face did not look right in my situation. they would be fine if you used only this style together and not mixed the face style. noting at all wrong with the light; just a different face i wa snot expecting. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent and easy to replace old canned lights with Energy-saving LEDs I bought 9 of these off the clearance table at our local Home Depot. I wasn't sure they would work for us, but the associate told me they were good and if they didn't work I could bring them back. They fit perfectly in the holes from our old fluorescent canned lights (6in). They fit in well and quickly by way of tension, they look great, and the 'soft white' is nice and bright. If they truly last anywhere near 35 years, and save us money along the way, costing barely over $1.00/ year vs $7.00/ year for fluorescent, then I will be thrilled. The whole retrofit set cost about the same as replacing a single LED floodlight into the old can. If this kit fits in your ceiling, then you'll be happy with them! January 9, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by I am impressed, mostly. My entire kitchen had old recessed lights. I looked into several options, from changing them to pendant lights on part, and several other things. I had switched all the bulbs in the house to florescent bulbs and that made the recessed lights worse. Switching to the LED lights made the whole room bright, with a nice effect. They are not over-bright, but are wonderfully light. The housings were pretty loose on my ceilings, as I think the ones I replaced were an industrial version. I added some caulk around the openings and let it dry. I then replaced the LED fixtures and they looked perfect. I did not think LED lights were an option for me in the kitchen, because I had 10 to replace. The special Home Depot had on them was a welcome relief to the regular price. I am very pleased with these lights. September 16, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good sale on energy efficient lighting! The light is sufficient and pleasant, and if they last as long and use as little power as predicted, they will prove to be a great value. The "screw in" aspect of installation obviously makes it easier than actually having to do wiring. The only problem is that the lip/edge of the lights is narrow and was not wide enough to completely cover the holes in the ceiling from our previoius lights. (They were the size that these are supposed to replace.) Fortunately the lip from our old lights was completely and easily removed (unlike these lights), and could be used with these lights to cover the hole. This worked well, but looks a little bit strange with the double lip/edge on the lights, and allows a bit of light to "escape" around the edge at the ceiling. However, overall we are very pleased. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product -Love the cost savings and the Look Easy to put together and gives the ceiling a Nice clean look.... January 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor installation design. Cree is better Purchased 20 of these for a retrofit. Although the light is nice and bright the installation design is poorly engineered. The tension springs pop off the lights very easily during install and don't hold the light up well enough against the trim ring. I took them all back and got the cree models. October 31, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great lighting but a couple issues The lights were very easy to install and give a lot of warm lighting. A couple issues I encountered: 1) The "trim" rings are pretty small and will cover a can light installed tight with no space. Unfortunately I had a couple of can lights where the hole was slightly larger than the can and the light did not cover the hole completely. I called and asked if there were wider trim rings that could be purchased and was told there were not. 2) I installed a dimmer that was specifically for LED or CFL lighting but when I installed it the lights flashed and I had to put in a regular toggle switch. It could be a dimmer issue but I was very disappointed ( the dimmer cast $30). September 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Found this in the store.... $10 cheaper Light went out over the sink, so I figured it was time to just install and LED. The one I found in store was $10 cheaper, but the specs are the same. The only difference is the warranty. Online it states one year, whereas my box says three years. It was super easy to install. The trim covered the opening perfectly. The LED is rated at 2700k so it's a nice soft light and matches my other lighting. The only complaint I have is with the trim color. It states white, but in reality it's more of an off white. November 25, 2014
