How Smart Lighting Can Regulate Your Circadian Rhythm

What Is Our Circadian Rhythm and Why Is It Important? Find Out Here

Do your days often go something like this?

You wake up feeling groggy, wishing you had more time to sleep. You settle into the office with a cup of coffee, and it’s not long before you feel like you need another. But by nighttime, you lie in bed, unable to sleep, glancing at the clock every ten minutes.  

If so, it sounds like your circadian rhythm is out of sync. The circadian rhythm is the 24-hour cycle that tells our bodies when it’s time to sleep and eat. Many factors influence our inner clocks, a significant one being lighting.

Natural daylight tells our mind that when it’s dark, it’s time to sleep, and when it’s bright, we’re awake. But what if we spend the majority of our time indoors? And now that the winter days are shorter in South Florida, we’re spending even more time under lightbulbs.

Circadian lighting can help. Smart technology is already assisting homeowners across Fort Lauderdale to feel their best and live more productive lives. Read on to learn how circadian lighting works, why it’s beneficial, and how it will enhance your daily life.

Improve Your Home’s Air Quality with Wellness Smart Technology

Air Quality Monitoring

What if you could get ahead of air contaminants before they became a health or odor problem? The Awair Element device evaluates your property’s air for five quality factors: temperature, humidity, CO2, VOCs, and PM2.5. The device connects to your smartphone and will provide a real-time air quality score with information and suggestions.   

For instance, if the temperature is too low in a room, Awair will recommend raising it to avoid lowering your body’s immune system. If there are chemicals in the air, Awair will suggest using ‘green’ cleaning products and ventilating the space. The system integrates with voice control like Amazon’s Alexa and Google Assistant, too. So, you can say, “Alexa, how is the air quality?” and receive a report back.

Air Purification System

An air quality monitor is even more useful when paired with the Intellipure air purification system. Once you see that your air quality is low, you’ll know it’s time to turn Intellipure on.  

Intellipure is more efficient than a HEPA filter, capturing 99.99 percent of particles as small as .007 micron. Its Disinfecting Filtration System (DFS) technology was developed through the United States Military Grant and uses a high-energy grid to prevent anything from living or growing inside the filter.
