## Are lumens the same as lux?

Relationship between Lumens & Lux

**One lux (1 lux) is defined as being equivalent to one lumen spread over an area of one square metre**. To put it another way: A specification in lux tells you how many Lumens (total light output) you need given the measured area you are trying to illuminate.

## Is 1000 lumens a lot?
