How Your Lighting Control System Helps You Sleep Better at Night
Simplify Your Day with Smart Technology
Sleep is a funny thing. When you’re a kid, you never want to waste a moment of your day with your eyes closed. As an adult, you probably long for enough free time to get a little nap in here and there.
So, it would stand to reason that when our heads hit the pillow at night, we instantly fall fast asleep, right? Not exactly. According to the CDC, up to 34.9 percent of people over the age of 18 in Raleigh, NC report getting less than 7 hours of sleep at night. And with the number of electronics in our lives, it’s not hard to figure out why.
But if technology is the problem, can it also be a solution? Not everyone can afford to unplug every day. Instead, your Lutron lighting control system can help you get a better night’s sleep. How? Just keep reading to find out.

Tunable Lighting Helps You Sleep and More
The light in your home is essential to your lifestyle, whether your control system is smart or not. Simply doing the things you may take for granted like cooking, reading, and more are all thanks to your lighting control system. And if you’ve already upgraded with a Lutron control system, you know how much one-touch controls over your light can simplify your day.
Raise all the lights in a room without getting up from the couch. Set timers so your home gradually brightens as you wake up in the morning. Combine controls and create the perfect movie-watching atmosphere with the touch of a button.
But today’s systems can do even more. Last year, Lutron announced that it had acquired Ketra, a tunable lighting company. Tunable lighting does more than just raise and dim. It automatically adjusts the color temperature of your system to reflect your natural circadian rhythms.
We’ve already written about how tunable lighting can transform your workday at the office. And at home, you can get even more benefits.
From systems that adjust throughout the day automatically to ensure you’re not overwhelmed with harsh, hot light right before bed, to easily changeable controls that make it easy to pick up day-to-day activities like cooking and reading, Ketra can help you get through your day, sleep at night, and wake up feeling refreshed in the morning.
Want to get even more out of your lighting control system? Lutron and Ketra are the perfect places to start.
