LED have undergone great changes in color type, brightness and power. LED, short for light-emitting diode, can be used effectively almost anywhere, plays an unparalleled role in traditional sources of indoor and outdoor lighting with its amazing and gratifying application in the city.
When it comes to lighting technology, LEDs are the future. LEDs are steadily being used by commercial establishments here and abroad owing to their energy efficiency and low maintenance cost. In fact, US’ Environmental Protection Agency said that they also last significantly longer than incandescent and fluorescent lights, and generate very little heat.
LEDs are notable for being extremely long-lasting products. Many LEDs have a rated life of up to 50,000 hours. This is approximately 50 times longer than a typical incandescent, 20-25 times longer than a typical halogen, and 8-10 times longer than a typical CFL. Used 12 hours a day, a 50,000 bulb will last more than 11 years. Used 8 hours a day, it will last 17 years!
LED products are now reliably replacing incandescent equivalents of up to 100 watts, and specialty products are available to replace even higher wattages.
Switching to LED have numerous advantages and benefits:
* LEDs use much less electricity than other bulbs
* LEDs have extremely long rated lives
* LEDs produce very little heat
* LEDs do not emit UV or infrared
* LEDs contain no mercury
* LEDs are resistant to shock and vibration
* LEDs with continuous lighting
* LEDs can operate effectively in extremely cold environments
* LEDs are environment-friendly, less fuel usage, less waste
* LEDs with color consistency
* LEDs with easy installation

SM has chosen to follow the trend, beginning with its parking spot indicators. Those devices are built with LEDs that provide savings to the mall in terms of power usage.
Consequently, this lighting system also creates fuel savings to customers by helping them ease their way into parking spaces, without the need to drive around and around needlessly.
LED lighting is a most promising 21st century high-tech field. As a new and efficient solid light source, has the significant advantage with long life, energy saving, environmental protection, etc., which will be the another leap forward in the history of lighting.
