Human Centric Lighting

By Mike Watson, Vice President and GM at e-conolight.

As LED lighting technology continues to evolve, we are seeing a rising trend in human-centric lighting, where indoor lighting can mimic the look and feel of natural sunlight. In principle, such lighting enables dynamic tuning of an environment to produce desired physical, mental and behavioral states such as increased productivity by improving energy, alertness and communication for occupants in a dynamic lighting environment. Overall, how people experience light is becoming very important, and human-centric lighting can enhance the health and well-being of occupants, according to a recent study by the Lighting Research Center.   

Right now, engineers, manufacturers and others within the lighting industry are focused on lighting’s impact to the human condition more seriously than ever before. The Department of Energy has identified negative effects poor lighting often has on health, including headaches, eye strain and lack of focus. With human-centric lighting, facility managers and electrical contractors can provide lighting solutions that create ideal conditions to support practically any desired mood or behavior. Whether the desired state is to improve moods, regulate cortisol levels, lower blood pressure or increase attentiveness, natural light is especially important in environments such as healthcare facilities and schools, where staying relaxed or focused is critical.

Minor lighting changes can improve the overall health and well-being of an individual by increasing productivity, morale, safety and sleep cycles. We suggest customers consider the effect lighting has on their lives and the tremendous value that proper lighting brings to the time we spend at home, work or any place we visit. Lighting can affect how we feel and act and shouldn’t be forgotten.
