Bring Balance and Well-Being with Circadian-Based Lighting

Ketra Lighting’s Human-Centric System Works With the Sun’s Natural Light to Enhance Your Lifestyle

Bring Balance and Well-Being with Circadian-Based Lighting

Light has a profound effect on us; its natural cycles regulate our days and influences our well-being. We have evolved as a species to rise with the sun and sleep when it sets. The color and hues change over the course of a day signaling our bodies to generate hormones or melatonin. 

Standard lighting design has often treated illumination as a utilitarian function, using harsh contrasts and cold colors. Ketra, purchased by Lutron in 2018, has long believed there should be more to it than that. In Ketra’s own words: “Our shared mission is to make light an integral part of the human experience. We’re rewriting the story of light and creating technology that works intuitively with us- to make the world a brighter, more beautiful place.”

Circadian based smart lighting control provides a different, more naturalistic approach. See how you and your Margate, NJ home can benefit.
