Explore the Natural Lighting System That Transforms the Human Experience 

Technological advancements in lighting have led to stunning illumination in today's homes. Fully tunable LED light fixtures provide an infinite palette of colors that homeowners experience with the touch of a button or voice command. They press a keypad, and the lighting transforms to pre-set hues and intensities, purposefully curated for every activity. 

However, one of our high-tech world's most popular lighting solutions centers around enhancing well-being. Known as human-centric lighting, it improves the human experience while bringing incredible lighting to homes as it changes in relation to the sun. At Walbrandt Electric & Technology, we partner with Lutron to bring this elevated experience to your properties.

Let's explore why home builders incorporate this lighting into their new builds and retrofits in St. Louis, MO.

The Market for Human-Centric Lighting

Valued at almost $1,572 million in 2022, the global human-centric lighting market is projected to expand at an astounding CAGR of 20.86%, reaching over $4,898 million by 2028, according to Global Information Tech.

Part of the reason for this growing trend is people's desire to transform their homes into spaces that enhance wellness and offer a sanctuary-like atmosphere. One quick look at Google, and you'll see questions like, "How do I turn my home into a wellness retreat?" This health-enhancing lighting offers the ideal anchor for a home that resonates with well-being.

Today's potential buyers and renters are prioritizing physical and mental health. Enhancing your properties with human-centric lighting can pique the interest of this health-conscious crowd.  

What Is Human-Centric Lighting?

Humans evolved to the changing nature of light and darkness, directly experiencing day and night that sculpted their routines. Even now, when sunlight enters the eyes and when darkness descends, certain hormones are produced that stimulate energy and relaxation. 

Today, however, humans spend, on average, over 90% of their time indoors. Many studies show that this imbalance puts people at risk for sleep disorders, depression, and diabetes. 

Human-centric lighting brings the dynamics of natural light indoors. The lighting shifts and changes in alignment with the natural world outside. Warm golden light fills a home at sunrise before shifting to brighter, blue-toned hues at midday. In the evening, a soft, warm amber glow prepares the body for rest.

In response, the body realigns with the internal timeclock that's been set to daylight and nightfall for eons. People report feeling more energetic and focused and experience a deeper and more restful night's sleep.
