New products, technological improvements, LED bulbs are democratizing. They now offer a much broader lighting panel. However, if you want to install anywhere in the house, including the room of your children, this is possible but with certain precautions.
According to a study * study of ANSES, the diode lights (LEDs) may constitute a danger to the retina and sensitive eyes of children. This risk factor is caused by the significant portion of blue light, that is to say short wavelengths. Dotted LED finger are those made from a diode emitting blue light supplemented a yellow phosphor for lighting almost white. For a nursery , so it is preferable to use ultraviolet LEDs and phosphors which boast three diodes emitting in three colors, but their price is much higher.
Beware of the glare
Other criteria of vigilance: LEDs often offer powerful lighting with high luminance. Therefore, the risk of glare is strong. Remember that a child, especially a very small, very often lying down and therefore it is more an adult subject to a risk of direct vision of the bulb. Absolutely Avoid placing LEDs near the bed or changing table. Outlaw also LEDs with a light beam emitted very focused. There are several LED night lights designed for nursery purpose.
Precautions in the nursery
There is no ranking or package directions for judging the share of blue light LEDs. In summary, to avoid potential dangers of LEDs , preferably use LEDs or with indirect lighting behind frosted glass. Opt for warm white LEDs of low intensity and without direct vision of the emitted beam. Recall that there are now dimmable bulbs and LEDs emit practically no heat are less dangerous than some halogen bulbs that can they cause fires.
