Light has a fundamental and demonstrable role to play in enhancing comfort, productivity and sleep
In recent years, we have received more and more publicity about human centric light (HLC). However, what is exact HCL?
(HCL) extends the concept of biologically effective lighting to a holistic planning and includes the visual, emotional and biological effects of light. HCL supports the long term health, well-being and performance of humans. This is achieved by dimming the smart light source, most likely an LED, to mimic the levels of sunlight throughout the day.
The development and maturity of LED lighting technology provides a solid technical foundation for fulfilling “healthy lighting”. At present, tunable white LED lighting technology has been recognized as the best technical solution for "health lighting". The best "home and office lighting" artificial light source is not only to achieve variable color temperature, but more importantly, it can achieve as close as possible to the sunlight as within the tunable CCT range.
The activities of people are closely related to the laws of the movement of the sun. Under the influence of the sun in thousands of years, we gradually form the circadian rhythm of "Work from dawn to dusk".
With the development of society and the advancement of technology, the concept of artificial lighting with the aim of “eliminating the darkness and bringing light” is gradually changing towards “healthy lighting”. Especially for those who cannot enjoy natural light bathing during work, working environment with healthy lighting experience is expected.
Blue light stimulates the brain to be active. Within the whole day, we always have the best mental state between 10 and 12 o'clock. This is the result of our biological clock regulating, and it is also the result of human evolution in the long-term under the law of solar activity. Between 10 and 12 o'clock, rich of blue light exists in the sunlight, and the color temperature is measured to be around 6000 K.
Warm and low light to help us fall asleep. Research by Harvard medical school shows that blue light has the effect of stimulating our brain, but at night, too much blue light can affect us falling asleep. We are unable to be functional at night without artificial lighting, but we can choose a warm light source without too much blue light. Warm white is suitable at night to reduce the impact on our sleep whilst using artificial lighting. Warm white light of 2700K has been found to be the best choice for night lighting to relax and unwind.
Sleep has certainly been unpredictable in 2020, with everything from anxiety and stress to our current working arrangements making it increasingly hard to come by.
