Lighting Science debuting Bluetooth-controlled Rhythm downlight
By Anthony Capkun
December 19, 2013 – Lighting Science says it is debuting new lighting products that can be controlled via Bluetooth-powered mobile apps “to optimize healthy living and efficient illumination” at the 2014 International CES, being held January 7-10 in Las Vegas, Nev.
The Rhythm downlight fits in any standard recessed lighting housing and provides “dynamic circadian lighting capabilities” that automatically adjust the light’s properties to optimize sleep or wakefulness, depending on the users’ needs and schedule. The downlight features a companion mobile app that prompts the user to answer questions about their schedule, lifestyle and habits. The light then sets user experience based on those answers. For example, when the user needs to begin preparing for sleep, the light will emit less ‘blue’ light, which hampers the production of melatonin. Whether you are an early riser or a night owl, the lights will adjust to your specific rhythm rather than the sun’s cycle, says the company.
