What is Tunable/Circadian Lighting?
You might have heard about tunable lighting before but were not quite sure what its purpose was. But if you’ve heard it referred to as “circadian lighting,” you might also realize it’s geared toward helping out your circadian balance. As you go about your day, you might tend to be indoors and under fluorescent lighting for most of it. If you don’t spend a significant amount of time outside, you’ll start to crave those natural sun rays.
If you don’t get to bask in the sun or get your daily dosage of outdoor time, you may start to feel tired, sluggish, and unmotivated. This is most likely because your circadian rhythm is off balance. You need regular exposure to the sun’s light and patterns to keep it on track, and help you go about your day feeling energized. Tunable lighting helps with this, in every way.
By integrating tunable lighting with your Savant LED lighting system, you can set your fixtures’ white lighting to adjust and mimic the actual sun’s brightness and patterns throughout the day – right inside your home.
How Does it All Work?
At the beginning of the day, your lights can turn on slowly in your bedroom. They’ll emit a soft, cool glow and tone that will feel like the sun rising. Your bathroom and hallway lights can provide the same lighting, giving you plenty of time to adjust and get ready for the day. As you make your way down to the kitchen, your lights can slowly brighten more and shift to mimic the sun’s levels precisely as they’d be at that moment.
Throughout the day, your lighting fixtures can emit a bluer white lighting tone. These blue tones are better for concentrating, working, and energizing. You’ll feel incredibly motivated to get tasks and chores done and will efficiently start and finish projects, while never growing tired in the middle of the day.
Once it’s time for bed again, your lights will produce a candle-like glow that feels like the sunset. Your body and mind have time to wind down as you prepare for bed and then gradually fall asleep. This routine creates a pattern that keeps your circadian rhythm in balance and keeps you feeling energetic, happy, and healthy – both physically and mentally.
