        CRES35: Circadian Rhythm and Lighting Control

        Course Description:
        The circadian rhythm is an important natural body cycle, and light is an critical factor.  It allows us to concentrate during the day and helps us sleep at night. Lighting control allows us to sync or trick our natural rhythms for our benefit. Several control options are available to perform white-tuning and new standards provide incentives/guidelines to owners and their employee for deployment.

        Learning Objectives:

        • Understand what your natural circadian rhythm is and how lighting control can affect it
        • Learn about the several lighting control options available to tune color temperature to match or trick the circadian rhythm
        • Discover the interfaces available for manual override and programming possible for automatic shifting
        • Preview the Well Building Standard and learn the compliance paths to certification
