THE LR6-GU24 from Cree Lighting is California Title 24 compliant and one of the most popular LED downlights for home or office. It takes just a few minutes to retrofit into most 6 recessed cans, and once installed it looks so traditional that no one will even notice its a LED downlight. The Cree LR6-GU24 produces a soft and pleasing warm white floodlight pattern that is easy on the eyes.

YOU CAN DIM THE LR6-GU24 but did you know?

The Cree LR6 is dimmable to approximately 20% and compatible with most standard dimmers. However some brands and models of dimmers will offer a wider range and smoother performance than others so please refer to the dimming compatibility chart located in the Downloads section of this page.


Yes! The Cree LR6-GU24 is UL damp rated, so it can be used in bathrooms, covered porches and other areas where it might be exposed to high humidity or extreme indirect moisture.


Cree says its as bright as a 65 watt incandescent (BR30), but most of our customers swear its as bright as the 75W-90W bulb that they replaced! To even our most demanding customers, this product never disappoints.


The Cree LR6 line of LED downlights contain no mercury and use 80% less energy than the bulbs they are designed to replace. And with a 50,000 hour rated life you'll be helping to reduce the number of bulbs that end up in our landfills.


If you use the CREE LR6-GU24 six hours per day you'll recover your initial investment in roughly 3-5 years (depending on your utility rates) and will bank approximately $300 more in savings over the life of the product! Thats a lot of extra green!

Was good for about 6 years. Then lighting became pinkish. Review by Sam
Installed led because in 2009 when we remodeled kitchen, I was understanding we would receive approximately 15 to 20 years from these lights. They were more costly than standard lights but I thought the extra years from led would make them pay off. After 7 years the light changed to an uncomfortable pinkish illumination (Posted on 10/18/2017)

Simply the best LED Can Light optinReview by Ronald Kuehl
No perceptible hot spots, great color, instant on, just wow!!! Those first units that I installed have greater than 5,000 hours on them and are producing the same great light that they did the day I put them in. Sure you can buy LED can light refits for less money, but you won't get better or longer lasting light than these CREE LR6s. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
It's been trouble.Review by Fred
These fixtures are really great. Good light and look good. Polar Ray did a great job with instant shipping and I'm very pleased with all of the typical purchase issues.

However, these fixtures are NOT WORKING on a dimmer. Used the dimmer recommended, Lutron DVCL 153 P and it has been nothing but trouble. The fixtures "strobe". Help! (Posted on 1/17/2013)
Expensive but high qualityReview by David Lindsay
Went with these after seeing them in our neighbor's kitchen. They cost a LOT compared to the CR6 or home depot re-brands, but we liked how the lens on the LR6 was not as deeply recessed and these purport to be of higher quality. These are very solid lights and feel sturdy. Installation with the clips felt a little funny, I guess they're just held in there by tension. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
GU24 RocksReview by William R. Wing
I installed several Cree LR6 units in our kitchen (the ones with the Edison base adaptor. They work well, but the installation is a pain. Last two I installed were the LR6-DR1000 high brightness units that only come with GU24 bases and conversion kits. They were a revelation! SO much easier to install! So when I needed to convert the lights in our basement game room, I went straight to the LR6-GU24 and love them. Much faster installation same great light. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
So Far So GoodReview by Michael Barber
6 months in and we like these lights a lot. Pricey, for sure. But nice lighting. If they last as advertised we'll be quite please. (Posted on 1/17/2013)
