How it Benefits our Sleep Patterns

Helping to Support More Regular, Restful Sleep

There has been much written about how smart lighting can be used as part of an seamless automated home setup to offer a smoother home experience, but what hasn’t been talked about so much are the associated benefits that come along with highly controllable smart LED lighting on us and our sleep patterns. Not sure what we mean by that? Then let us explain.

Circadian Rhythm

Firstly, we need to explain that the body’s circadian rhythm is something that influences our wake/sleep cycles, eating habits, body temperature, hormone release and a whole host of other body functions. The problem we face today is that we spend much of our time under artificial lighting, which can have an unsettling effect on circadian rhythm. Unlike our ancestors who’s only source of lighting was lamplight or sunlight, our body’s get confused by artificial light sources.

Light levels can affect circadian rhythm, as the blue light – something that wakes us up in the morning – recedes when the sun starts to set, signaling to our brains that it’s time to get ready for sleep. However, we spend so much time in front of screens these days that this whole system can be out of balance, leading to poor and irregular sleeping patterns.

Highly Controllable LED Lighting

As well as being able to be turned on and off automatically, smart LED lighting is able to subtly adjust the blue light levels it emits, thereby encouraging a natural wind-down towards the end of the day. Conversely, in the morning, this same lighting can be programmed to emit more blue light, making you feel more alert and ready for the day ahead.

With roughly around one in every three adults experiencing some kind of sleep problem, smart lighting is an ideal way to help alleviate the problem and get yourself a much more balanced sleep cycle. Artificial lighting is a very modern paradigm, but it is one that causes much in the way of disruption, as we’re just at our best when we’re not well rested. The good news is that the answer to this problem and many more lay in the exciting new world of IoT.

In Summary

So, if you’re someone who has sleep problems, you should really consider what smart LED lighting could do for you. IoT isn’t all about remote heating and security cameras, as there are solutions to many of the problems modern people face every day. The physical issues that are caused by artificial lighting, like insomnia, eye strain and headaches often go under the radar, with the symptoms being attributed to something else. However, if you install smart lighting into your home or office, you could just find that your employees become more rested and in turn, more productive.
