Wellness: The Growing Trend in Smart Home Automation
Create a Healthier Home with Today’s Technology
Treating our homes as a space to rejuvenate and heal from the effects of a sometimes-stressful world has long been a part of our human makeup. From creating outdoor retreats to reconnect with nature to designing rooms for yoga and quiet meditation , we’ve explored different approaches to finding balance and renewing our vitality.
Today, the growing trend is using smart home automation to enhance wellness and create a healthier home. Let’s explore a few of the possibilities and how technology is helping homeowners in Zionsville, IN, live more balanced lives.
Light That Heals
Our ancestors woke with the sun and retired when night fell, and the shifting changes in natural light told their bodies when it was time to sleep and remain alert. Today, it's estimated that many of us spend over 90% of our time indoors, disrupting our circadian rhythm, the 24-hour internal time clock that regulates our sleep-wake cycle and responds to changes in light. Some of the side effects are sleepless nights and reduced energy during the day.
Today’s human-centric lighting brings daylight into our homes, helping to restore our sleep-wake cycle. Now, you start your day with lights the color of sunrise. You’ll notice the lighting shifting throughout the day, with stimulating bright, blue-toned lights mid-day and the relaxing warm amber glow of the setting sun when darkness arrives, telling your body it’s time for rest.
Clean Air and Water
According to the Environmental Protection Agency, the concentrations of some pollutants are anywhere from 2-5 times higher in our homes. An advanced air purification system works with your HVAC to reduce the presence of mold, pollen, allergens, viruses, bacteria, and ultrafine particles. Additionally, enterprise-grade water purifiers in every tap and showerhead remove heavy metals like lead and arsenic, as well as bacteria and microbes.
