Home of the Future featured three different product ranges from PhotonStar:
Biodynamic Lighting - Emulating the colour of the sun for alertness and comfort.
We supplied the latest in biodynamic lighting in selected areas in the house to boost alertness, and help to create various ambiances at different times of day:
- Blue light to help wake up in the morning
- Cool light to aid focus during the day
- Warm light to relax in the evening
Unlike many lights on the market which offer these colour changes, the SmartWhite light fittings produce a very high quality of light - meaning the light that helps you wake up in the morning, also enables you to see the true colour of your clothes and makeup. It has also been developed to be one of the most efficient and longest lasting light fittings available today. Operating with the control system as shown in the house enables the lighting to change colour automatically throughout the day, emulating a summer daylight cycle to keep you feeling alert and help you relax at the end of the day.
If you would like to learn more about the effect of light colour on your health and circadian rhythm (body clock), and learn why getting it wrong can make you feel permanently tired, this episode of BBC's Bang Goes the Theory explains it very thoroughly:

EcoStar LED luminaires
In the bedrooms and corridors, we installed highly efficient EcoStar luminaires. Unlike LED lamp replacements, the amount and colour of light is genuinely equivalent to a 50W halogen, yet it only uses a fifth of the energy. Made in the UK, the products are an example of some of the best LED lighting available today - as recognised by the many industry awards it has won.
These fittings are simple to install, (with dimmable options) and your electrician can purchase them through electrical wholesalers. For your nearest wholesaler and more information on these luminaires, please visit our EcoStar site dedicated to these high quality LED fittings.
