BEG offers human-centric lighting control

BEG, human-centric lighting control

BEG has developed a wellness multi-sensor that controls lighting based on time, presence and circadian rhythm. The product provides lighting control with occupant wellbeing.

Paul Jones, BEG sales director for UK and Ireland, highlights the growing importance of human-centric lighting: “In the UK, we are noticing a huge interest from building managers who have begun to explore smart lighting to maximise the use of natural daylight to enhance the vision, wellbeing and performance of employees in the workplace.”

The BEG product works by adjusting the colour temperature over a 24-hour period, from warm white to daylight white. The illumination intensity is adjusted from 500 lux to 1500 lux. The dimming of the individual lights is not visible to occupants, which mimics natural light and improves wellbeing and health. The flexibility of the BEG control means that rather than one type of lighting being used across an entire office, control panels can now be used to select lighting quality based on varies types of activity, or the age of employees since older workers tend to need more light. Jones adds: “The latest generation of smart lighting is allowing building managers to maximise the comfort and performance of their employees down to a task-by-task basis.”
