I ordered 6 of the Lotus 6″ round lights. While waiting for that delivery I used a stud finder and pair of dividers set to 6.375″ to lay out the six lights evenly on the ceiling.
The day the lights arrived I cut the six holes in the drywall ceiling, connected the lights together using Romex, popped them into position and connected the last lamp to an existing fixture electric box.
Looks like a modern kitchen, lighting is even and perfectly covers the entire room. I referenced a couple websites for the best placement. I completed the entire installation without ever having to go in the attic and it’s ALL TO NEC CODE.
Excellent product, well made components. Highly recommend this product. The lights themselves are amazing, the look and color is the best I have seen

The sleek design made it possible to have the pot lights on the underside of a timber frame second floor system. Great product, excellent customer service.
I used them as both accent and principal lights in the condo and they have a nice clean look, light up perfectly and work flawlessly.
I am very happy that I decided to use your lights and I wanted to thank you for a great product.
Purchased approximately 20 of the 4″ flat recessed LED lights from Lotus two years ago. They were part of my complete condo renovation.
The service from Lotus was exceptional, products arrived on time and as described. The electrical inspector had no issues approving them and they are still working great two years later.
Overall I’m very happy with the product. I connected all the lighting to a sleek Lutron Grafik Eye, so they are always being used at different dim levels.
I have attached some pictures too. Thanks, Shawn
I have tried many led light over the years, but none was as sharp looking and dimmed as good as yours.
I will certainly recommend you to friends as well if anyone are looking. Thanks, Jahn
Dear George, I recently ordered 24 of the 4″ super thin led lights from your company, and wanted to thank you for your service. Your quick order processing & shipping allowed me to have the lights installed for my customer before their closing. I especially appreciate the easier mounting tabs and the included junction box. Sincerely, Jack
The thin profile allowed us to put recessed lighting in where it would have been impossible (or really expensive) otherwise. They passed the electrical inspection with no problems at all. I promote your product every chance I get! Thanks, Leif
I bought four of these to install in a renovated attic loft not knowing exactly how they would perform, basing my decision on the thickness and a few short reviews.After installing these and livening them up all I can say is wow!
These LED units are impressive, throwing out a warm and inviting light that compliments the room. If I knew how well they would work, that’s all I would have installed throughout the 1400sq/ft attic loft. If I could up load pictures, I would gladly show these off.
Notes for installation:
1. There aren’t detailed installation instructions included with the units. You do need to know a little about lighting installations. Call an electrician and have it done right the first time.
2. Plan out your lighting scheme. I found that on an 8′ ceiling, about 36″ spacing is perfect.
3. Don’t throw away the cardboard ring which only looks like packaging; it’s your template for a perfect fit…dumpster diving is not fun.
2. Make sure you use Loomex/Box Connectors or similar when connecting multiple lights, 2 per unit, last one on the loop only needs one.
3. Where the site says to use a dimmer that is LED rated…spend a few extra bucks else they will not work as well and cut out about half way down the slider. No fault of the lights, its the dimmers fault purchased by the user.
4. If you are planning to install in an area with blown in insulation above, use a protection bag. If not, the moment you pull one out to show it off to your buddy, you’re going to need a vacuum. Not fun again.
I would highly recommend these to anyone doing reno’s or new installations where you want a low power consumption but high quality light with exceptional light dispersion that doesn’t hurt the eyes like some of the LED products or CFL bulbs I’ve come across.
We wanted the ceiling to be at a specific height and lights spaced as needed. These lights did not disappoint. The color and brightness is great. The ability to use a dimmer added to the attraction. To top it off, we needed these lights within 3 days, the normal delivery went beyond this. I included a note with my order explaining my scheduling issue. George made sure these lights were at my door when we needed them.I am extremely happy with the lights and the company! Dan (Indiana)
I had to do a retro-fit in my condo but found insulation in the ceiling. After a long search online I settled upon this product which seemed like the perfect solution : slim, IC Rated, low power and dimmable. Shipping was quick and the product did not disappoint, it was easy to install and surprisingly bright.
The only reason I am giving this product 4 stars is because no manual explaining installation was provided. (It would have been nice to get the minimum cable size between the box and the fixture, wet installation instructions, etc)
I will be purchasing more of these guys in the future for sure!
With 12 of these lights in a 20 feet by 20 feet room it looks like day light at any given time. It is not harsh on your eyes although they are dimmable to 20% of their brightness which I do when watching movies which is a totally different experience. The product was good all the lights worked and the shipping was fast from Canada to Chicago it took 4-5 days.
I was really impressed with the service, and then also very impressed with the product, not often that things work flawlessly in DIY projects, but with Lotus LED it left me with a sense of satisfaction. Thanks!
The light was easy to install and gave off a surprising amount of light. Highly recommended.
Good replacement for halogen lighting. I have installed both colours and sizes, both excellent products and great service!
Since our basement is only 7’6″ high we were looking for a lighting solution that does not hang below the ceiling (or even flush-mount) so these lights fitted the bill nicely. Unlike traditional pot lights that can be installed only where the joists configuration allows, these half-inch thin LEDs can be installed directly under the joists if needed, thus allowing desirable layout. Depending on the room, we spaced them 4′ to 5′ from each other in a rectangular pattern (slightly less, 2′ to 3′ from the walls) which, considering 120 degrees beam width angle, provides sufficient light coverage at the eye level of a standing average person, and abundant light level at the desk/table surface where the beams overlap. Almost all the rooms in our basement have the lights split between two switches to have more or less light as needed; some areas have also dimmers for even more granular control over the brightness. Very happy with the results. Excellent service and fast delivery was a bonus.
Excellent warm light, very bright if needed and dimmable when not. Very easy to install.
When I told my wife of my experience dealing with you, her comment was “.. are you sure you are dealing with a Canadian company?”… Thank you very much and I will have no trouble recommending you in the future. Again thank you for your service.
