Indoor LED Lighting Layout Calculator
An Indoor LED Lighting Layout Calculator is a software tool that allows you to enter room dimensions, fixture count and approximate foot candles you are hoping for and then calculates the number of fixtures you might need.
How to Calculate the # of lights needed
The calculation to find the correct number of lights starts with understanding how bright you want the space to be. This is a measurement called Foot Candles. Once you know how many foot candles you want or need, then you can add / subtract lights from the space until it produces the foot candles you are looking for.
Whats the difference between an indoor lighting calculator and a lighting plan?
Use a calculator if:
You are looking for a free, online tool to quickly calculate the number of fixtures you need.
You want quick, simple and immediate results.
You are looking for a count of fixtures based on a specific budget
You need a rough estimate on quantity and layout / configuration does not matter
There is no requirement to include specific light balance and shadows in your documentation
Use a lighting plan if:
You would like a professional lighting engineer to review your requirements
You need a calculated lighting plan that shows foot candle readings
You need to see how balanced the light levels are, and you care about reducing shadows.
You want to show aiming angles, and light positions in scale with your indoor or outdoor area
