I needed a new ceiling light for the spare room. The last one had all sorts of whistles and bells I didn’t need and so when it packed in I decided to look around for a more basic model. I found this 24w 29 cm diameter model from SEEDIQ which gives me everything I want with a minimum of fuss and bother. The main selling points of this model are the super slim design, remote control and the dedicated colour nightlight mode.
In the box is just the light unit itself together with a simple screw fitting kit and a large, well written and informative user guide. The lamp is lightweight and is a single slimline unit with no access to the wiring inside. The lamp is not waterproof but it is rated at IP40 dustproof as well as fireproof.
At 8oog it is very lightweight, which means it is less robust but easier to install onto the ceiling where it is held in place by just a couple of screws fitted through the detachable mounting bracket. The shade can then be fitted after the bracket is attached to the ceiling. The only wiring needed is to connect the colour-coded plus and negative wires to the existing ceiling wiring.
The light comes with a full sized remote control, well marked and easy to use. This allows you to control the colour temperature of the main white light between a warm 3000K to a cool 6000K, and both this and the brightness can be controlled either gradually or using presets. You can also activate and control the RGB backlight, which encircles the main light when in Nightlight mode which is a very pleasing effect, I must say.
The light seems reliable enough, is good and bright, and the nightlight is very attractive too. It all seems to be working well and so far it has not let me down and I do not expect it to do so in the future.
If you need a simple and easy to use ceiling light with nightlight for a small to medium-sized room, with Alexa or Google control then at just £27.99 this may be for you.
