The artificial lighting management is the first circadian stimulus in offices and buildings; it can ensure higher productivity, concentration, creativity, possibly faster healing and cost savings
Crestron solution for artificial lighting as primary circadian stimulus in buildings that meet the WELL Building Standard follows a hot trend in architectural lighting. Crestron circadian lighting solutions ensure those lighting control systems perform to specification and are easy to use.
In office spaces, circadian lighting control can help drive greater concentration, productivity, and creativity among workers. In healthcare environments, such as in a patient’s room, it can promote faster healing. In classrooms, it can lead to better student behaviour and concentration. And in hotels it can help guests acclimate their natural body rhythms to local time and thereby mitigate the effects of jet lag.
In addition to the physical benefits, the new WELL Building Standard provides building owners and managers cost-saving deployment guidelines.
Crestron control systems and graphical user interfaces (i.e. touch screens, desktop or mobile apps) enable users to control the colour, intensity, and dosage of light in their space to elicit a particular circadian effect. Features such as graphical colour pickers and user selectable time clock events enable people to understand and get the most out of their tuned environment.
“Research suggests that automatically adjusting the color temperature and intensity of light to synchronise with the natural circadian rhythm can create an optimal environment and trick our bodies” – said Nathan Dietrich, Commercial Lighting Director at Crestron. “Circadian research may be complicated but the implementation of a circadian solution is not” – concluded.
