Human Centric Lighting is a lighting concept that puts the focus on people and their needs during the design process. In order to provide healthy light, we concentrate both on the user and the way that they put the given space to use. Introducing systems that imitate natural daylight makes it possible for us to ensure the users’ comfort and well-being.
Lighting that is in line with the HCL concept mimics the variable parameters of natural daylight and adapts them to the human circadian rhythm. ES-SYSTEM advanced lighting control systems synchronize the light spectrum of the luminaires with the spectrum of sunlight and make it possible to adjust the lighting parameters to ongoing user needs. And all of this with a simple to use mobile app.
CIRCADIAN is a technology that best imitates sunlight. Thanks to the use of modern LEDs and the proper configuration of blue and red light emission, it affects the stimulation or suppression of melatonin release. Therefore, it either gives people energy or helps them wind down and fall asleep, supporting the natural human circadian rhythm.
“Having talked with ES-SYSTEM about what is technologically possible when combining the latest LEDs with spectral power distribution coming as close as possible to sunlight, and photoreceptor-weighted adjustments in intensity based on local sky measurements, ES-SYSTEM’s way forward in designing lighting installations being in harmony with human circadian rhythms is the most advanced I have come across so far.”

“The right-timed exposures to light benefit not only the treatment of seasonal mood disorders, but also that of non-seasonal depressive disorders and circadian rhythm sleep disorders. Thus, the concept of CIRCADIAN fits in the evidence-based approach to the treatment of the aforementioned mental disorders and supports their clinical management.”

If the light emitted by the luminaire is meant to effectively strive to imitate sunlight, it must not be focused on a single point. Scientific research shows that the most effective sun-imitating luminaires emit light all over a large surface, causing the emitted light to not only shine on a certain area directly, but – much like the sun – it also reflects off walls and surrounding objects.
ES-SYSTEM has introduced CIRCADIAN technology to an entire assortment of luminaires that can successfully be used in offices, schools, lecture halls, conference rooms, as well as hospitals, nursing homes, and private homes. These products vary in design and are suitable for many applications, allowing you to use them in virtually any interior.
The color temperature of the light affects people’s mood and well-being. Warm, yellow-toned light has a relaxing effect, whereas cool white light is stimulating and mobilizes people to take action. The color temperature control system allows you to create any desired ambience depending on your current preferences. It makes it possible to flexibly adapt the lighting without having to replace or switch between several light sources.
In situations where you need a calm, relaxing atmosphere that’s ideal for winding down and having a rest, it is recommended to use warm, yellow-toned light.
At times when you need to focus on work or mobilize employees to work more efficiently, it’s a good idea to opt for cool white light.

Natural daylight intensity changes depending on the time of day and the season. Using supplementary artificial lighting is necessary when there is not enough natural light in the room.
A fully automated adaptive lighting system uses sensors to collect information about the daylight intensity and the number of people in a given place, automatically adjusting the lighting intensity level in individual luminaires in the room. This way the entire working area is evenly illuminating, ensuring a sense of comfort and security for all users.
Adjusting the light brightness level gives users an extraordinary sense of comfort while providing considerable savings for the building managers. The brightness can be adjusted not only by using a wall switch, but also via remote control. Automatically triggering pre-programmed scenes or automatic lighting control using built-in presence and daylight intensity sensors instantly adjusts the brightness level to the ongoing needs as well as the lighting conditions outside.
