Our bodies have a natural internal clock— our circadian rhythm—that regulates when we feel awake or restful. Our circadian rhythm is meant to follow sunlight, but as we spend more time indoors and up late at night, our rhythm can be disturbed by our routines. Our moods and minds are best suited to different light at various times, so why should our lightbulbs look the same all day and night?
With smart tunable lighting, your home’s bulbs will automatically transition from cool hues in the morning to a soft, warm tint in the evening. During the day, you’ll feel more alert and energized to tick off your to-do list. As the sun sets, lights will adjust accordingly, and the warmer shade will prepare your mind for sleep. Lighting has been scientifically proven to decrease symptoms of depression and improve sleep cycles and productivity. It is a helpful solution for your household and your health.
Controlled and Scheduled Lighting
For further productivity, integrate your home’s lighting fixtures into your home automation system, like Control4, to create scheduled presets. For example, time your outdoor lights to turn on automatically at seven thirty p.m., and indoor lights to all shut off at eleven. Additionally, you can control your lights from your smartphone, tablet, or voice-command speaker, no matter where you are. Turn off every light downstairs from your bedroom or turn them on before you walk in the door at night. Not only will this save time, but lighting prompts help keep you on schedule as reminders to go to bed or wake up.
