Tunable White Light for Wellbeing from Interact
Lighting that helps people see, feel and perform well

Lighting for Wellbeing can adjust the lighting in spaces where we work, study and relax to meet our bodies’ needs.  Dimming, tuning and easily personalizing lighting via pre-set scenes optimizes light to suit the time of day or the task ahead. Lighting can even be tuned to mimic the natural sequence of daylight, which means the lighting works in harmony with our body’s natural circadian rhythm. Studies have shown that this not only boosts morale and motivation but also helps employers with the challenging task of keeping high-value employees and attracting new talent.

Benefits of Human-Centric Lighting

Lighting for Wellbeing supports this requirement and enhances the commercial appeal of any building. It also greatly increases the appeal of workplaces with limited access to daylight.

With tunable white, increase visual comfort and higher energy savings through simple automations. Change lighting with ease to support different tasks, enhancing productivity, moods and motivation.

Interact now supports Tunable White for Wellbeing

Get more flexibility with Tunable White solutions, which can easily change LED intensities and correlated color temperature (CCT) from warm white (2700K) all the way to cool white (6500K). These changes can be triggered from scene switch buttons, apps or even set to happen automatically to mimic natural daylight patterns throughout the day for optimal visual comfort.

  • Warm White: Optimal for a comfortable environment for discussion or other tasks
  • Cold White: Boost concentration and focus for more intense work sessions
  • Dimmed Lights: For informal or end of the day sessions, combined with a scene for presentation mode
