How Home Automation Improves Your Wellbeing

Tunable, Natural Lighting from Lutron Ketra Offers Aesthetic and Health Benefits

How Home Automation Improves Your Wellbeing

Did you know that a smart home is a smart choice for your health? Spending too much time indoors can affect your body’s natural circadian rhythm, which has a direct impact on your sleep patterns, among other things. However, when you install tunable, natural lighting from Lutron Ketra, you make your home in Scottsdale, AZ, a healthy place to live. By integrating the lighting with your home automation system, you effectively improve your mood, sleep, and overall wellbeing.

Tunable lights from Lutron Ketra allow you to adjust them by changing the hue, intensity, and other features to meet your needs. They can also automatically simulate natural light with cool, bright colors during the day and relaxing, warm colors in the evening. Discover more about the benefits of switching to Lutron Ketra smart lighting by reading our blog.

The Healing Power of Light

It may be hard to believe that your home’s environment can be transformed by light. But it’s true! Lighting has a dramatic and noticeable effect on your mood and health. With human-centric lighting, you gain more control over the intensity and hue of your lights. You can even set lighting scenes for different times and events – such as morning, dinnertime, parties, movie night, etc. Most importantly, Lutron Ketra lights that are interfaced with your smart home can be set to mimic the natural progression of sunlight throughout the day to align your natural circadian rhythm.

For example, you can set a scene that turns the lights on gradually as your day begins. Instead of waking up with a jolt, you ease into your morning. In the afternoon, you need less light, so your system adjusts, transitioning to cooler colors to promote more productivity. When it’s getting closer to bedtime, your Lutron Ketra lights will slowly dim while casting warmer hues on your living areas. This all happens with the touch of a button, or you can program your home automation system to automatically adjust the lights.

Showcase Your Sense of Style

Tunable lights not only improve your wellbeing, but they make everyone else feel good too. Think about it. How do you feel when you enter a room that is illuminated by fluorescent lights? Not so good. But human-centric lights that include accent lighting, recessed lights, wall lights, and elegant lamps add style to your home. Certain hues will let you highlight particular colors and features in each room.

In fact, they elevate the ambiance of any room. They also give you creative ways to light a space, highlight key features, and conceal other areas in shadow. The end result is a room and home that conveys a sense of style. And that makes everyone feel good!

Are you interested in upgrading your old lighting to tunable lights that work with your home automation system? It’s easy to get started. Call Desert Sound & Security at (877) 246-5458 or fill out our online contact form. We look forward to hearing from you.
