What is human-centric lighting?
Human centric lighting (HCL) creates environments within indoor spaces that supports wellbeing and performance improvements through the introduction of circadian friendly lighting sequences.
Light has a significant effect on our concentration levels and mood as the colour temperature and intensity of natural light changes during the day. Through the implementation of advanced control systems, connected lighting and tuneable white LEDs, a similar spectral shift can be achieved to mimic natural daylight within a building.
Circadian rhythms control our energy levels and sense of alertness or sleepiness through hormone production. By tuning the light composition through artificial light and natural light in a building, we can aid our body clocks to function in tune with the time of day.
Throughout the day, there are many stages of daylight from an early morning yellow dawn to a brighter whiter light afternoon, human-centric lighting aims to replicate the light produced by the sun by varying the colour temperature and intensity with lighting controls, aligning itself with people’s circadian rhythm, resulting in a positive impact on the building users health.
Our technology combines human-centric lighting with a high energy efficiency system that incorporates daylight harvesting. The sensors located within our lighting fixtures constantly monitor natural light levels across the space. Adjustments are continually being made on two levels and the light levels are increasing or reducing, depending on how much sunlight the sensors are receiving.
Exposure to the correct light at the right times can boost employee wellness, mood and sleep patterns.
The resulting increased concentration levels can improve productivity and reduce accidents.
A connected, smart lighting system can easily adjust sequence timings to suit shift workers.
