It’s Never Too Bright or Too Dark with Smart Shades

Finetune Your Health with Automated Shades and Smart Lighting Control

Healthier lives start at home, where it is often the little things that matter most. A glass of water in the morning helps. So does exercising regularly. But have you thought about how lighting control and motorized window treatments also lead to better health?

At StereoTypes, we offer industry-leading technology solutions to our clients in Richmond, VA, and all along the East Coast. We always recommend installing automated shades. Why? It’s simple. Our clients can’t get enough of them and the health benefits and added value they bring to a smart home. 

Here are three ways automated shades and smart lighting control lead to a better, healthier home life for you and your family.

Human-Centric Lighting 

Circadian rhythms are the natural processes in your body that respond to sunlight conditions.  For example, your energy levels are high in the morning and midday when the sun is bright, but drop later in the afternoon and at night. This allows your body to better function in the day and to rest and heal more effectively once the sun goes down. 

Human-centric lighting design relies on tunable lights, smart dimmers, and motorized window treatments to recreate the temperature, intensity, and healing properties of sunlight at home. 

Open and Close on Demand

Window treatments play a central role in regulating lighting conditions for any room, but to work effectively, they must be automated and integrated with other technology systems. At StereoTypes, we use leading automation companies like Control4 to automate shades, lights, and smart devices and systems. In doing so, the process of setting a lighting scene becomes as simple as tapping on your smartphone.

So, do you need to work all night at the home office? No problem! Set your lights to a cool white temperature and trick your body into being more productive. Or, if you are feeling a bit under the weather, why not dim the lights to a soft, warm, white light conducive to better healing?

More Than Mind and Body

Automated window treatments have many benefits beyond better health. For instance, motorized, automated smart shades protect furniture and interior finishes from UV damage, contribute to temperature control, and reduce energy consumption at home. Best of all, we can install and program them, so there is no need for you to lift a finger!If you are on the East Coast and would like to learn more about how we could help optimize lighting control in your smart home, contact us, or give us a call at (888) 217-9488. We look forward to hearing from you.
