As homes become more connected, full sensory systems are emerging that are able to sync up our sensory needs and preferences, bringing inputs such as lighting, sound, and scent together to optimize environments throughout the day.
Smart lighting is being designed to evoke specific moods, such as calm or energised, as well as to improve sleeping and waking up.
Auri, a smart self-care light, includes forest, lake and concert modes, as well as a yoga coach and sleep assistant.
Casper’s new smart light Glow cues the body to sleep with warm light that gradually dims, then wakes it up softly in the morning.
As we become more aware of the effect of light on our mood and wellness, access to natural light will become a key concern. Product which mimic natural light are becoming increasingly popular.
