The Philips SceneSwitch LEDs are standard LED light bulbs with a cool trick up their sleeve that lets you dim the light down low without the need for a dimmer switch. Click through to see more.
The SceneSwitch bulbs come in three varieties. The first is a soft white bulb that puts out yellowy light at three different brightness settings. The second is a daylight-tinted bulb with the same three brightness settings. The third is a combo bulb that offers a fully bright soft white setting, a fully bright daylight setting, and a minimum brightness soft white setting.
Each SceneSwitch bulb offers three different settings. You switch between those settings by turning the bulb off and back on again within a few seconds.
High-CRI bulbs like the GE Reveal LED do a better job at making colors pop (like the purple wall above), but they often aren't as bright as standard bulbs like the SceneSwitch LED.
Here are the three settings for that combo bulb. Changing between them is as easy as turning the switch.
The soft white SceneSwitch LED is available from Home Depot for about $8, while the daylight and combo varieties sell for a dollar more. Be sure to read our full review for a full rundown of the specs and the results from our performance tests.
