Light, Luxury, and You: How Technology Transforms Your Lifestyle
Crafting a Smarter Lighting Control Design
What’s the difference between a tool and a toy?
When you were young, you may have had a toy toolbox. A plastic hammer, a flimsy wrench, maybe even a screwdriver that fit into your tiny kid hand. These were fun to play with, and they may have even led you down a specific career path later in life.
But when you got older, you probably started to realize there was a big difference between the toys and the real thing – where the toys were fun to play with, the tools were both fun and effective ways of changing the world around you.
Now, no one would ever accuse a smart lighting system of being a mere toy. But when you consider some of the advancements over the past few years in smart technology, today’s systems can do a lot to enhance your lighting control design.
In this blog, we’ll explore a big advancement in lighting control and how it can add a new layer of luxury to the living spaces in your Winnetka-Wilmette, IL home or beyond. Keep reading for more.
The Secret to Luxurious Lighting
If you’ve followed our blog, you know about the benefits of lighting control. With one touch you can transform the look of your home. You can even select settings, save them, and return to them whenever you want.
Smart lighting helps you save energy and protects your home, too. In fact, it has a reputation as one of the most versatile additions you can make to any smart home.
But today, versatility is common. Your system needs to step it up to offer the height of luxury to you and your family. Manufacturers have noticed this need, and they’ve used contemporary scientific discoveries to help enhance your lighting design.
Specifically, manufacturers have focused on building systems that reflect natural circadian rhythms, or the way your body responds to the changing light throughout the day.
Circadian rhythm is a natural phenomenon that humans have developed to help us determine when it’s time to wake up or go to sleep. As the sun moves across the sky, it offers different amounts of light. Obviously, the brightest part of the day is at noon, while the dimmest parts of the day are during sunrise and sunset.
Those small natural changes reflect in our behavior. It’s a concept that many major lighting manufacturers have considered.
Some modern control systems gradually adjust the light for the time of day. When it’s time to be awake and active, your lights are the brightest and at the highest color temperature. As the day wears down to bedtime, the lights almost imperceptibly change their settings to inspire relaxation.
The result is a more productive day and a more restful night. Is there anything more luxurious than that?
