As technology has advanced over the years so have the issues caused by artificial light. The good news is that through research and advances in smart home lighting these issues caused by interference of our circadian rhythms can be minimized. In this post, we will look at how different types of light have different effects on our mind and body.

Most modern electronics and lighting usually have a cool tone. While LEDs are known to be more environmentally friendly, their cool hue does not have a positive impact on someone who is working on winding down for the night. In fact, studies have shown that cool lighting actually contributes to alertness in people. One of the ways this issue can be solved is by installing smart home color changing bulbs that adjust to a warm tone when it's almost time for bed.

It's also a good idea to have smart lighting installed in places around your home. This lighting, known as task lighting, is known to help put less strain on your eyes. It may also be a good idea to install warm bedroom lighting in the direction of your pillow so that you can see without needing ceiling lights lighting up your whole room and inhibiting melatonin production. If you spend time in the living room before bed, it may be a good idea to install bias lights which shine from behind your TV or monitor. These lights also help by reducing the strain put on your eyes.
