Lighting can profoundly impact the way we feel. We notice this in extreme circumstances: strobe lights might make our heart race; a dimly lit hallway may make one feel uneasy; and an incredibly bright room makes us feel exposed. We’ve all attended a party that would have felt more comfortable if the lights were slightly dimmed, and we’ve all spent time in windowless offices that felt particularly bleak.

That’s the idea behind human-centric lighting, a new movement of smart technology that brings the benefit of natural light into your home. Read on to see how it works and how human centric lighting can improve your daily life.
