Human Centric Lighting

Artificial light and modern society
In todays society, many of us spend most of our time under artificial light - at home, in the office, in the classroom, shopping at retail stores. How does this affect us as individuals? What is the bigger impact on society? It is well known that being in front of your computer, on your phone or watching TV late at night can support you - the blue light emitted by these devices stimulates and makes it difficult for us to sleep. Such blue wavelengths are emitted from most office lighting, under which we can spend most of our day. The opposite is also true. When trying to relax, the warm color of a desk lamp or fireplace can set a soothing mood, perfect for reading a book or enjoying time with family. The mood light, as it may be called, is color and darkness not far from sunset or fire. It is soothing, providing a sense of comfort and relief.
What is Human Centric Lighting

What is Human Centric Lighting

Human Centric Lighting is an LED technology that integrates nature design into lighting. It simulates the natural daylight cycle - sunrise and sunset - and its effect on our biological circadian rhythm. This profound effect on our circadian rhythm is achieved by seamlessly and automatically adjusting the color temperature wavelength (2700K to 6500K), dimming the intensities (0-10V) and the use of sensors and intelligent lighting controls. Due to its influence on our physiology, human central illumination is also known as circadian illumination or biodynamic illumination. The goal of human central lighting is not only to regulate our biological circadian rhythm, but to benefit from it, improving our productivity and productivity while also benefiting from health, sleep and overall mood.

The problem with most modern lighting environments

The problem with most modern lighting environments

In some cases, we have the ability to manipulate our lighting environment to suit our needs. But for others, we have to deal with what is given to us, at work and outside our home. When we spend long hours in the bright, constant artificial light in the office, it can affect our quality of sleep and in turn affect our performance the next day. Light has a lasting effect on our body and we are not as productive, energetic or happy as we could be under a natural light cycle. Many in the scientific community have been aware of this problem with modern artificial lighting environments. In recent years, a solution has been introduced - Circadian Lighting, or Biodynamic Lighting. In the lighting industry, this technology is known as "Human Centric Lighting". It gives us more control over how we feel and perform in our daily lives Human Centric Lighting allows us to stimulate the ipRGC photoreceptors when we want, providing us with energy and increasing our productivity by increasing the intensity and blue spectral light at appropriate times. And when we have to roll, the hue and intensity of the lighting environment go smoothly. The blue wavelengths are removed and the lights are dimmed. This allows us to relax at the end of the day and have a night of restful sleep.

Natural light and human function

Before the invention of artificial light, we had sunlight, moonlight, and fire. Humans have evolved around these three light sources, relying not only on their eyesight but also as regulators of our circadian rhythm and biological cycle. The impact of light on the human body is a Nobel Prize-winning concept that has been extensively studied over the last four decades by scientists around the world. Wavelength and light intensity affect our hormonal production, sleep quality and many other biological functions regulated by our internal circadian rhythm.
