Human-Centric Lighting: The Solution to a Happy and Healthy Home
Live, work, and sleep better with a circadian lighting system
LED lights have been around for many years. But today, you can get tunable LEDs that can change colors and the correlated color temperatures of the light sources.
Just like natural sunlight that changes its CCT throughout the day with higher temperatures on the Kelvin scale early in the day that eventually lower as the day progresses, your indoor tunable lighting system can also replicate the same temperatures. Such illumination systems result in human-centric lighting.
These lights generate the same response from your body that natural sunlight does to regulate your circadian rhythm. Read on to discover how adding circadian lighting to your Manhattan, NY, home can improve your health and well-being.
Blurring the Lines Between Indoors and Outdoors
A tunable lighting system allows a single light source to change its correlated color temperature and hue throughout the day to match sunlight.
You don’t need to be outside to gain the benefits of natural light. The color-changing lights bring all the benefits to you. In the morning, your home gets filled with blue-white lighting that makes you feel energized and productive.
Just as the sun changes its color and temperature, the tunable lighting system also takes on a warmer color that helps you wind down in the evening. The toned-down, warmer hues stimulate melatonin production that helps your body relax, allowing you to sleep better at night.
When your body is exposed to these changing colors and hues throughout the day, your sleep-wake cycle is automatically regulated, allowing you to live a healthier lifestyle with increased productivity, better sleep, and an improved mood.
Improved Wellness in Style
The use of circadian lighting throughout the day ensures your circadian rhythm falls into place. But the benefits of tunable lighting don’t end there.
You can customize the lighting fixtures used in your home to add an extra layer of aesthetics. Perhaps, you want to add LED tape lights around the ceiling or prefer under cabinet lights. Or maybe you want to decorate your home with scones or pendants that illuminate your home with brilliant light.
Regardless of which fixtures you choose, they can all be equipped with the color and temperature-changing capabilities of tunable lighting systems.
And most of all, you can adjust the lighting settings according to your requirements for a better home experience. When working in the kitchen, switch to blue whites to become more productive, but after a hard day at work, switch to amber hues to help your body relax, all with a press of a button.
