Nowadays, many people are inside more than 90% of the time – thanks to Human Centric Lighting (HCL), they still have the best light available.
But what is Human Centric Lighting, or HCL for short?
Human-Centric Lighting (HCL) simulates the natural daylight sequence by continuously adjusting the brightness and colour temperature in offices or the home office.
Adjusted lighting brings vital benefits:
- In good lighting conditions, people work more concentrated, make fewer mistakes and get tired less quickly.
- Light adapted to the time of day promotes health and well-being.
- The natural biorhythm is promoted, which increases productivity and enhances creativity.
- Human Centric Lighting (HCL) combines activation and relaxation in one product.
Human Centric Lighting (HCL) aims to simulate the natural course of daylight as best as possible to exploit the resulting positive effects on people. The colour spectrum of the light changes throughout the day: the light that is still warm at sunrise becomes brighter and less warm in the early morning hours and towards midday, characterised by high blue light percentages. The blue part, which among other things, makes us awake and active, decreases again towards evening, and after sunset, a low illuminance prepares us for going to sleep. Therefore, an efficient and intelligent lighting system needs high illuminance levels to activate us during the day and low illuminance levels to suppress stimulation in the evening or at night.
