Create a Smart Circadian Rhythm with RGBW Bulbs


If you’ve ever wondered why you get tired when it gets dark out, or why sources tell you to not use devices before bed; it might have to do with your Circadian Rhythm! Each of us has an internal clock that is influenced by the sun and the light sources we receive throughout the day.

If you’d like a scientific explanation, the NIH describes Circadian rhythms as “physical, mental, and behavioral changes that follow a daily cycle. They respond primarily to light and darkness in an organism's environment. Sleeping at night and being awake during the day is an example of a light-related circadian rhythm.”


Someone who enjoys keeping their schedule close to the suns can benefit from keeping track of the type of light you take in during the day and at night. Your Circadian Rhythm can affect your digestion, influence your body temperature, it can also determine your sleep patterns. Having a Smart Home is an added benefit that takes most of the work out of it for you. 

Incorporating a Smart Circadian Rhythm means your RGBW or CCT Z-Wave light bulbs will change hue throughout the day based on the location of the sun in your specific region!
