What is Human-Centric Lighting? What is Circadian Lighting?
According to Lighting Europe's definition, Human-Centric Lighting is lighting that supports the health, well-being, and performance of humans by combining the visual, biological and emotional benefits of light.
Circadian lighting is a light that helps the natural cycle of physical, mental and behavioral changes that the body goes through in a 24-hour cycle, also known as circadian rhythm.
They are both based on the effects of light on the human body.
Is the KUMUX Circadian Lighting System easy to use?
KUMUX Circadian Lighting System is completely automatic. The user only has to enable/disable the circadian lighting regulation with a switch or button and light characteristics are dynamically changing along the day without any other interaction, bearing in mind their geolocation and activity. This improves the user experience since they do not need to select any complex lighting parameters (and understand their effects) and receive all the benefits of human-centric lighting without any additional effort.
Do I need any hardware or lighting fixture?
KUMUX Lighting is a software solution that can be integrated into any lighting control system in smart buildings. You only need tunable white lamps and KUMUX Lighting will regulate them in their color temperature and brightness range, to simulate the changing sunlight indoors.
Can KUMUX Human-Centric Lighting save energy and costs in the building?
With KUMUX Lighting, there could be a reduction of up to 20% in the energy consumption of the lighting system. However, the most important financial benefit of the solution is thanks to the impact of circadian lighting on people’s health. For example, when used in an office, the productivity of employees could rise by 4.5%. In a company with 500,000$ of payroll expenses, this could mean 22,500$ of savings. So both, energy savings and payroll savings would reduce the payback period of the control system for circadian lighting.
