About the Satco Starfish T24 RGB and Tunable White 6" LED Recessed Downlight (850 lumens)
Smart low-profile downlight
Smart low-profile downlight
This ultra-shallow 6" tunable downlight can go almost anywhere. It's rated for wet locations so you can use it outdoors or in bathrooms. Its slim profile lets it fit in cabinets and other places where space is at a premium. And it's compliant with California Title 24 energy efficiency standards.
If you're comfortable shutting off the breaker and hardwiring these in place yourself, consider that you'll also need a hole-saw to cut the opening. If all that sounds daunting, you should probably call your electrician.
Flexible app and voice control
The downlight connects directly to your Wi-Fi, so there's no need for a hub. You then use the free Starfish Smart Lighting mobile app to turn it on and off, and dim or tune its hue — from warm and golden to cool and crisp white light. You can also group lights, control them together, and create your own lighting schedules using the app.
This light works with the major voice assistants, so you can control it hands-free whether you use Amazon Alexa, Siri (Siri Shortcuts), or Google Assistant. That means you can dim your lights or turn them on and off just by asking, whether you're at home or away — as long as you are connected to the internet.

More details on the Satco Starfish T24 RGB and Tunable White 6" LED Recessed Downlight (850 lumens)
Overview: The Satco Starfish Wi-Fi 6" LED RGB and Tunable White Edge-Lit Remote Driver Downlight (S11280) is a two-piece ceiling light fixture that requires less than one inch in ceiling height to install. The fixture includes the LED light and a separate junction box, connected by an 18" cable. The light connects to your Wi-Fi network (2.4 GHz) without a hub, and can be controlled through the Starfish Smart Lighting app. It also works with SmartThings and many of the leading voice assistants. The downlight carries a 5-year warranty.
California's Title 24: This downlight complies with California's Title 24 (T24), which means it meets the energy efficiency standards set by the California Energy Commission.
Wi-Fi: The downlight works with your home's Wi-Fi 2.4 GHz network and is controllable with a mobile device. Each Starfish light and light fixture has a Wi-Fi-enabled chip that is securely connected to a TLS 1.2 encrypted cloud platform to protect your privacy and ensure the highest level of security.
Dimmable/Tunable: Using the app, you can turn the light on and off, and dim or brighten its output. The downlight offers up to 16 million colors and thousands of tunable tones of white light from warm (2700K) to cool white (5000K).
Placement: The LED light is designed for installation in a circular hole in the ceiling. The 6" downlight requires a 6-3/16" diameter cutout. The light is rated for use in wet locations, such as bathrooms, basements, and overhangs. It is suitable for indoor or outdoor installations.
Installation Overview: The installation requires running residential wire to the fixture location and hardwiring it to the fixture's junction box. The pigtail from the junction box plugs into the connector on the LED light fixture. Once the light is lifted into the ceiling cutout, the torsion springs on the sides of the light hold it firmly into place.
