Our bodies have evolved over millions of years to have strong on-schedule bright days and dark nights so that our body knows when to do the things it does. For instance, our heart is ready for activity during the day but at night, it needs to rest and repair itself. By knowing what time of day it is, our bodies can do the right thing at the right time. Research from Monash University shows that the way we use lighting at home affects our health, productivity, mood and sleep and therefore it’s important to use different colour temperatures and brightness levels at different times and for different tasks for optimal health.
Our Live Well range was specifically engineered to improve your health and wellbeing by matching your lighting to your daily routine. Through simple wall control, you can wake up refreshed, stay energised at work and play, relax when the day is done and sleep better and deeper at night, all with just one light.
Start your mornings positive and happy with bright cool white light that stimulates the ‘feel-good’ hormone serotonin to kick in. The energising blue wavelengths help you stay focused and alert while working, cooking, studying and playing during the day. When the sun goes down, it’s time to switch to warm white light to help your body relax and prepare for a good night’s sleep.
Blue light is good during the day but disruptive at night. Using circadian-friendly technology, Live Well lights reduces blue light at their warm colour temperature levels. Switching your lights to this colour temperature setting two hours before bedtime promotes the production of melatonin – the natural sleep hormone to help you fall asleep easily and stay asleep, interrupted.
Some LEDs produce flicker which is normally not visible due to its rapid speed but still causes eye strain, headaches, distraction and can aggravate certain health conditions. Live Well lights are designed to reduce flicker for better eye comfort and health.
Some LEDS cause glare which makes it’s difficult to see when the light is excessively bright. This can cause irritation, eye fatigue and visual discomfort. Live Well lights are designed to reduce glare, ensuring complete protection and comfort for the eyes whenever you turn your lights on.
CRI measures the ability of a light source to reveal the true colours of objects. The higher the CRI (closer to 100), the more natural the colours appear. All Live Well lights have a CRI higher than 80 which makes the colours of your artworks, furnishings and flooring look their natural best.
Taking control of your health has never been easier. With our Day Night Sleep range, you can simply the flick a switch to change the lighting scenes to match the time of day and your task. With our Dim to Warm range, you can change the colour temperature using any standard wall dimmer or smart dimmer.
