World's smallest recessed light, suitable for decorative and accent lighting. With fixture dimensions smaller than an American nickel (~0.75" x 0.75" (21mm x 21mm)), DOT LP is tiny and unobtrusive, and can be placed virtually anywhere, into virtually any material, including drywall, wood, brick, steel, stone, concrete, glass, tile, and more.  Patent Pending.

Despite its minuscule form-factor, DOT LP is powerful enough to accent a single-storey wall, yet so small as to virtually disappear into your deck, floor, wall, or soffit. Perfect as an alternative to the giant step-lights that illuminate pathways and stairwells. Ideal for disappearing into mosaic tile floors and walls in kitchens and bathrooms. Also ideal as recessed soffit lighting. Fixture housing consists of hand-milled titanium, enabling us to reduce the bezel (escutcheon) to less than four sheets of paper in thickness. DOT LP is suitable for any environment up to and including IP67, from desert, to arctic, to high rainfall zones, to pool-side, luxury marine, and seaside environments, but is equally at home in interior hallways, stairwells, and more. Featuring a minuscule 8mm x 8mm square aperture and custom-crafted PMMA lens for optimum throw distance, DOT LP is a tiny-aperture pin-prick of light that virtually disappears, once turned off, unlike standard-sized recessed luminaires.

What's the difference between QUANTUM LP and DOT LP?

First of all, there are many similarities between QUANTUM LP and DOT LP.   They have the same fixture dimensions at 0.75" x 0.75" (21mm x 21mm).  They both feature precision, hand-milled titanium housings.  They are both IP67 outdoor-rated.  They both feature seamless interoperability with all LP-Series luminaires.  Here are the differences:

   1) features a sharp cutoff 58º bleed-free beam angle.
   2) features a precision-milled metallic cup reflector.  
   3) is NOT suitable for up-light orientation in wet locations, due to cup reflector.
   1) features an ultra-wide 136º beam angle.
   2) with a flat-fronted PMMA lens that is optically superior to glass.
   3) is suitable for up-light orientation in wet locations.

DOT LP has been engineered to be fool-proof to specify, easy to install, and offer rock-solid performance.   Instead of employing confusing LED drivers, which require confusing and unstable serial wiring schemes, DOT LP has been designed to work - flicker-free - on standard, readily-available 12 volt DC (constant voltage) power, in a parallel wiring scheme, for any mains environment, from 120V up to 277V.   Consult your LEED professional on how DOT LP can increase your LEED rating.

Light effect can vary, depending upon color of surface, distance from surface, and ambient lighting. 

IP Rating: IP 67. The MINIMIS patent-pending design features a fully-integrated LED+lens (or LED+reflector) module that is resistant to full water immersion and temperatures beyond 0ºF (-17ºC), and thus is suitable for pool-side lighting, marine, and pond areas. However, our LP-series luminaires are not approved for IP 68 (permanent submersion (i.e.: installation inside ponds, fountains, pools, or any body of water - occupied or unoccupied)).

For UL- or CSA-compliant installation (Class II max. 5 amps), contact us.

Not included: 12 volt DC constant voltage power source, landscape wiring, terminal blocks, etc. not included.  Consider our complete LP-Series Power KIt here.

Each luminaire carries a 3-year limited warranty.  Luminaire is not warrantied if operated on 12 volt AC, or on constant-current LED drivers, or on dimmers.

While not "Energy Star Certified", our LP line of products conforms to ALL Energy Star qualification requirements for "light-emitting diode (LED) Lighting":

   - Brightness is equal to or greater than existing lighting technologies (incandescent or fluorescent) and light is well distributed over the area lighted by the fixture.
   - Light output remains constant over time, only decreasing towards the end of the rated lifetime (at least 35,000 hours or 12 years based on use of 8 hours per day).
   - Excellent color quality. The shade of white light appears clear and consistent over time.
   - Efficiency is as good as or better than fluorescent lighting.
   - Light comes on instantly when turned on.
   - No off-state power draw. The fixture does not use power when it is turned off, with the exception of external controls, whose power should not exceed 0.5 watts in the off state.
