Halo's proprietary connector vs GU24 : LED
I like to add a bunch of recessed lights to my house (there's none !).
I was about to buy 10 Halo ML5609830 LED modules (900 lumen, 3057K) for $45 at Home Depot along with white baffle trims and Halo LED cans (~ 8 bucks each).
Initially, I considered Eco575 / CR6, but I like higher color temperature (2700K is too yellowish to me) and brighter modules (Eco575 is ~ 600 lumen) and Halo ML5609830 seems to meet my needs for LVR and family room. (I also planned to buy 3500K or 4000K Halo modules for office).
Halo's LED housing has a proprietary socket instead of more common (and standard) GU-24 socket. I'm afraid Halo's proprietary socket may not be 'future-proof'. That is if Cooper lighting stops producing LED modules with the proprietary socket later, I may end up having to replace a housing (housing is cheap, but labor is expensive !) as well as light modules when a light module goes bad (say 12 yrs later ) Adding to this worry is that Halo LED modules are much harder to find online (HD carries them and so do a couple of online stores, but that's it).
I'm now thinking of buying Halos' incandescent bulb housing with Edison socket because Halo's LED module can be hooked up to an Edison socket. Given that there are so many housings with Edison socket installed, I'm pretty sure there will always be adaptors for Edison socket. Do you see any downside of using Halo's incandescent housing for LED modules?
What would think of this issue?
Do you know any good LED module (> 3000K, > 80 CRI, > 900 lumen, hopefully, Thank you in advance
