The pop songs of the ’60s heralded ‘Here Comes the Sun’ and to ‘Let the Light Shine On In,’ bringing with them the feeling of renewal and regeneration of the senses. So, it is with the same sentiment that daylighting is a universal feature of newer houses.
While the benefits of natural sunlight on humans are clear, including better focus and resistance to illnesses, too much of a good thing causes a home to become overheated and stuffy. Motorized shades, either by manual control or connected to sensors, helps you generate the optimal environment of natural light with comfort.
Sleep As Nature Intended
The continuous cycle of the sun rising and setting dictates our human patterns of vibrant focus and quality of rest. Likewise, the sun has shaped human evolution over the millennia, generating the cues our bodies use to be the most active and sleep.
Circadian-based lighting maximizes the natural light, matching the hues and intensity throughout the day and supplementing where needed. The result is a more energetic workday and a completely restful slumber, making you happier and healthier.
Nothing connects you to nature more than enjoying it directly. Your backyard is the perfect place to blur the lines between indoors and out. With an outdoor entertainment system, you can immerse yourself with a movie under the stars or revel in the music giving your family barbecue a bit of groove and sass.
Add outdoor televisions and all-weather speakers that furnish outstanding quality, compensating for the elements but never replacing the beauty of blue skies above you and the lush green of your property.
