What is a Lumen?

Lumens = brightness!

A lumen is a measurement of perceived or visible light that is produced by a bulb or integrated LED fixture. The higher the lumens the brighter the light. The lower the lumens the dimmer the light.

Therefore, lumens are a measure of light output and can be used to estimate how bright a fixture is.

Lumens measure brightness, Watts do not.
