Wellness and Circadian Rhythm
Light regulates many biological responses, including an 'internal clock' that heightens alertness during the day and makes us sleepy at night. The daily changes in our physical, mental and behavioral states that respond to a light-and-dark cycle are commonly known as our circadian rhythm. Mimicking this natural rhythm indoors optimizes circadian health and overall wellness by delivering the proper color and intensity of light to align correctly with time of day.
USAI Lighting’s tunable white light and WRGB technologies, combined with Savant’s intelligent automation will allow lights to not only be set to certain levels and color temperatures based on executed scenes, but also allow for a single room or even the whole home to be put into a default circadian rhythm mode mitigating circadian disruption and promoting wellness.
“Our partnership with USAI Lighting represents another vital piece of Savant’s forward-thinking strategy that includes lighting, climate, energy management, entertainment and a broad range of smart home functionality,” stated Savant CEO Robert Madonna. “Savant enables these advanced technologies to work effortlessly together, providing enhanced lifestyle, environmental responsibility and wellness for the luxury home.”
“The combination of Savant and USA Lighting's advanced controls and lighting technology provides an intuitive way for homeowners to experience the power of personalized lighting—light that is as dynamic and ever-changing as we are,” said Bonnie Littman, President and CEO of USAI Lighting. “For the first time ever, homeowners can curate their lighting for any activity, whether it's for better living, working or playing, and we are thrilled to partner with Savant, bringing this experience to the market in a high-quality and meaningful way.”
