Exposure to sunlight during the day helps maintain healthy sleep patterns. But too much high energy visible light at night disrupts this cycle, causing sleepless nights and daytime fatigue. This is often because our homes are full of light that disrupts the release of melatonin, the hormone that naturally regulates sleep.Learn More
With new Sleep technology, Sleep LED enabled products produce dramatically less blue light than traditional LEDs, producing wavelengths similar to those you would experience as the sun goes down.
The key wavelength of HEV (High energy visible light) typically presents with the highest strength in the range of 400-450 nano meters.
Visionary Technologies Sleep products have been designed to significantly reduce parts of the light spectrum that inhibit melatonin release, thereby assisting the body to sleep. The Sleep LED light output and colour appears as a standard light, but the inhibiting high intensity light wavelength peaks are absent.
Blue light is beneficial during daylight hours as it boosts attention, reaction times and mood. Recently however, it has been found that exposure to blue wavelengths at night can be detrimental to your health (Harvard Medical, 2012).
Sleep LED technology carries the industries highest eye safety certification. The RG-1 rating is granted to safe light sources which carry no biological risk, even with lifetime exposure*
*RG-1 eye safety certification. Pursuant to the IEC 62471 classification system
