Downlights, also known as recessed lights or can lights, typically have a circular design and mount in the ceiling with a low profile. This makes them ideal for large rooms or rooms with lower ceilings, like a basement or kitchen. Recessed downlight kits provide all necessary parts to install downlights.
Sylvania, a trusted brand in the lighting industry, produces these high-quality LED downlights. Customize a space using high-performance Sylvania recessed lights and reduce energy use with dimmable lights and kits. Select models are Energy Star rated. Depending on the light kit, manage up to 50% on energy savings.
Some Sylvania LED retrofit kits directly replace compact fluorescent lamps. There is even a SMART downlight, the Sylvania 74281, that is Zigbee compatible which can be controlled from your smartphone or tablet!
When replacing older lights with newer LED bulbs, a kit is required in order to properly work. Retrofit kits include the housing, bulb, and driver and enable use in older fixtures. Installing a retrofit kit is simple. Remove the old bulb and existing trim then replace it with the kit or module. Sylvania also offers integrated bulb and trim downlight retrofit kits which can be seen here.
When it comes to recessed lighting, you have many different options. Sylvania can light kits can range from 4 in. to 8 in. with many models in the common 5 in. to 6 in. range.

Supplemental products include frames to help retrofit kits into existing ceiling placements. Battery back-up drivers can also be paired with the downlights.
