Human-centric lighting (HCL) has proven to help regulate circadian rhythms and improve mood, productivity, and routine. As homeowner interest in the category grows, one question looms: If exposure to natural light is a must, how can homeowners gain full control over natural light and help maximize its benefits?
While automated shades have become the go-to solution to gatekeep UV rays and glare, schedules and scenes remain at the mercy of the sun’s schedule. What if you could overcome the limitations and deliver the perfect amount of incoming light — on schedule or command — at any time of day? Picture it: Night shifters could awaken gradually to a warm, sunrise-simulating radiance. Remote workers could energize with cool midday luminance — even on a cloudy day. Families could enjoy a cozy, glowing ambiance on gloomy winter days.
If a shading solution that packages all this sounds too good to be true, then you’ve not experienced daylight on demand with Aura Illuminated Shades.
These new shades combine the benefits of natural and artificial light in a first-of-its-kind, three-in-one design: A traditional automated shade pairs with a reflective room-darkening liner for natural light control and style, while built-in LEDs provide a secondary light source comparable to sunlight, with added color temperature and brightness control. The result? A uniform glow that replicates the radiance of natural rays passing through the shade’s fabric, creating the perfect atmosphere for any activity, any time of day.
