BR30 smart bulbs

Directional smart lighting

BR30 smart bulbs have been morphed into a more unique bulb shape from its traditional, pear-shaped counterpart. Delivering a different, more directional light thanks to a flatter design, the BR30 smart bulb is an excellent lighting option for larger rooms and hallways.


What is a BR30 smart bulb?

A BR30 bulb stands for ‘Bulge Reflector,’ referring to the bulbs particular shape. Bulge reflectors have a wide, directional beam angle, which means their light output fills a semi large area that maintains a focus, usually over 45 degrees. The number ’30’ represents 1/8th of an inch and describes the diameter of the bulb. To find the diameter of a BR30 smart bulb, divide 30 by 8 resulting in 30/8ths of an inch or 3.75 inches. This will help inform you whether or not the BR30 will fit into a certain fixture.
