[Jon] Hope his home office lighting mimics the outside light, at least from a color perspective.For this, he has Start designing It monitors the outdoor lights and his workstation at the same time, and drives a pair of LED lights of different colors accordingly. One lamp is rated higher than 5000 K and provides “cold” lighting, while the other lamp is rated lower than 3000 K to provide “warm” lighting.
Commercial solutions do exist, but they are proprietary and done within a single bulb, and seem to be difficult to control in a carefully planned manner throughout the house. [Jon] His method plan is scalable, and ultimately consists of a single microcontroller for various lighting areas of the house.
One of the design goals of this project is to create something that can disappear in the room, not the science fair aesthetics of my previous project.
A commenter on his project website asked why [Jon] In doing so, what is the value of controlling the color of your indoor lighting?although [Jon] There are currently no specific goals, and he pointed out that these technologies may help increase productivity, manage circadian rhythms, and serve as light therapy for seasonal depression.
