This Simple Feature Transforms Your Mood and the Way Your Home Looks
A circadian rhythm is the body’s natural 24-hour internal cycle, or biological clock. You may or may not have heard about this phenomenon before, but everyone has one, and things such as the sun, artificial light, and travel can dramatically disrupt or aid this natural rhythm. Luckily, you can undo damage to your natural internal clock by incorporating circadian lighting into your Solana Beach, CA home.
Circadian lighting is human-centric, meaning it assists the natural ebb and flow of your moods to help you feel energized during the day and help you relax in the evenings. Keep reading below to learn how this innovative smart home solution can change your lifestyle!
Add Pep to Your Mornings
Because electric light can affect circadian rhythm, using human-centric lighting from Ketra can greatly improve your day-to-day lifestyle. In the mornings, pair natural sunlight with interior lighting. Sunlight comes in from windows because motorized shades are raised, and interior light fixtures can shine cool white tones with a color temperature around 4,500K. As the day moves on, Ketra lighting will automatically adjust through the color temperature spectrum, with peak focus-time occurring between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
Remove Blue Light in the Evenings
As the day wanes, color temperature falls below 4,500K down all the way to around 2,700K, removing blue tones of light and producing a warm, amber glow similar to that of an incandescent bulb or a peaceful sunset. All of these changes can occur automatically without any input from the homeowner, so your home supports your natural circadian rhythm with lighting without a second thought.
If you need to adjust the brightness of a fixture, you can simply press a button on an on-wall keypad, using a smartphone app, or by using a touchscreen. If you are working on a tedious task such as building a craft project with your kids, drawing, or knitting, then you’ll need bright white task lighting to illuminate the task at hand instead of warm tones of light; all you need to do to adjust lighting is tap a button!
