Cree Lighting’s Cadiant Lighting Experience Brings the Outdoors In

LDS Cree Cadiant 400

Nov 1, 2019

Cree Lighting today announced its architectural-grade Cadiant Dynamic Lighting Experience is now available for order. The Cadiant Dynamic Skylight is a daylighting solution that recreates the experience of being under a natural sky.

Featuring a proprietary design with individual sun and sky features, the Cadiant Dynamic Lighting Experience creates the sensation of natural sunlight and a blue sky in interior spaces. Using advanced lighting control and color changing technology, separate sun and sky panels create the east-to-west arc of the sun. A top LED panel represents the sky and can vary from the extreme blue of a clear day to the gray blue of overcast conditions. Inner LED side panels shift between warm and cool color temperatures, mimicking the sun’s natural dawn-to-dusk movement of the day.

Evidence suggests mood, sense of well-being, productivity and cognition might all benefit from lighting that tracks the solar day. The Cadiant Dynamic Lighting Experience provides a valuable sensory connection to the outdoors in spaces where access to natural lighting through windows is improbable, impractical or impossible. Whether people are in conference rooms, interior offices or open spaces in commercial offices; waiting rooms, chemotherapy and dialysis treatment spaces, or nurses stations in healthcare facilities; or classrooms, cafeterias or library spaces in educational facilities, they can feel the effects of natural sunlight despite being indoors.

The Cadiant Dynamic Skylight is a standalone system enabled by Cree Lighting’s SmartCast Technology to help lighting designers control the theater of the sun and sky. The advanced lighting controls interact, connect and harmonize with other fixtures to create an overall scene that fits the needs of any space.

The standalone system eliminates IT hassles and specification roadblocks, while the code-compliant controls and SmartCast automated set-up and commissioning make it easy to specify. Using an intuitive, wall-mounted SmartCast touchscreen with a clean graphic interface, users have three options: they can choose to let the sun follow the natural east-to-west course of the day; or choose from standard presets — Dawn, Morning, Midday, Afternoon and Evening; or easily create and save their own presets with simple fingertip control over the light levels and colors profiles.
