I did not customize the bulb it came from FOSI with the LED light source. The only customization I did was the delay for the shooting star and added a second wire to separate the bulb from the motor. Fosi would have added the wire but I forgot to mention it when I placed my order.
The LED bulb has multiple LED emitters totaling 23 watts. The HID bulb from FOSI is 25 watts. FOSI said that the HID is a bit brighter than the LED. I had concerns with the color temperature of the LED being different than the HID and they said that both bulbs emit a warm white light and they apply a color correction filter to both the LED and HID to make a whiter light.
One other thing I'm not sure if I mentioned earlier. The illuminator is 12" by 12" and would not fit in my soffit. FOSI was able to make my box 10" by 12" so it would fit the height of my soffit.
