Make sure you have the manual for driver connection and all the important parts sorted. First connect the light fixture  with the wires and then with the main  power source following the instructions.

The Installation steps are as follows:

Turn off the main power source.

Mount the hook to the ceiling. Make sure the hooks are able to carry larger weight.

Secure the hanging ring with the lamp body and make sure it is not loose or else it will fall and cause damage.

Now hang the light on the hook which is fixed with the ceiling.

Connect the live and neutral wires with your power supply. Check for additional wires and make sure each of them are properly connected as LED lamps are mostly dimmable so they have an extra wire for that which should be connected to the DC port.

Once set, switch on the main power supply to check if the lamp is working properly. There won’t be a problem if the wires are connected properly and voltage supply is adequate.

Lastly, make sure the installation is carried out by a certified professional and all the precautionary measures are taken into consideration.
