BETTER WELLBEING THROUGH CIRCADIAN LIGHTING

KETRA’S NATURAL LIGHTING SYSTEMS BRING BALANCE TO CIRCADIAN RHYTHMS AND BETTER OVERALL HEALTH

Natural light has a profound influence on the world around us, dictating the natural cycles and seasons. It is as much a life force as the blood that flows through our veins, with the power to invigorate and inspire us. Human biology is tied to the sun’s intensity and vibrancy transitions as the tides are to the moon. The sun influences the wax and wane of circadian rhythms, directing our sleep-wake patterns and, therefore, our daily energy and emotional state.

All too often, the illumination in our homes is seen merely in a utilitarian manner, functionality over comfort. Research has shown that our well-being, focus, and general outlook is greatly influenced by the type of light we experience. Ketra, purchased by Lutron in 2018, is a lighting company explicitly created to bring balance by integrating natural and tunable lighting.

The Home Office, Transformed

Crestron HomeTime Technology Turns Your Home Office Into a Collaboration Space. 

Whether by necessity or a lifestyle choice, it is clear that the trend towards working from home is growing exponentially.  This change was well underway before the events of 2020, but the accelerated manner in which the majority of work changed has made remote work normal.

According to Entrepreneur Magazine, many founders are already committing to having an average of 70 percent of staff work remotely for the next five to ten years.  Studies have also shown that the productivity of workers has maintained or slightly increased. No matter how they got there, many employees are rethinking the attraction of high-density living for work. Many have already made a move to accommodate the current health precautions and manage a life-work balance actively. 

In order to accommodate the needs of remote work, we have turned to online conference tools.  Regardless of location, any conferencing set-up must provide a means not only to connect with others. We must have the ability to talk remotely as if we are all in the same room.

The Benefits of Motorized Shading

Lutron Motorized Shades Maximizes Ambience and Energy Savings

Window treatments bring not just fashion but function as well to a room. We all know that a room looks incomplete without something on the windows to frame it all. It is the final piece in setting a space’s final effect.

In addition to acting as an accent to the decor of the room shades, blinds can lower your energy costs and provide a sense of privacy. Motorized window shades give you the means to best utilize daylighting, using the sun over electric illumination, and managing temperatures inside your Miami, Florida home.
Lutron shading solutions provide a wide variety of styles and the convenience to set them with a touch of a button or in conjunction with a smart lighting system.

5 Home Office Technology Tools You Need

Impress Your Team With Optimized Conferences, Superior Integration Tools and Flattering Lighting Design!

According to a Gartner study released in July, more than 80% of company leaders surveyed said their organizations plan to permit employees to work remotely at least part of the time upon reopening from the novel coronavirus pandemic. This shows a large uptick even from last year, when telecommuting still looked like a “nice-to-have” benefit instead of a necessity.

Though many love the flexibility of working from home, the setup comes with challenges. Suddenly, you don’t have the enterprise-grade network, AV conferencing technology or high-end lighting that your workplace provided. Nor do you have an IT support person to call when your presentation doesn’t appear on the screen. At ACS, we install home office technology that streamlines your devices and automates many processes to keep this transition as smooth and easy as possible. Keep reading for some tools we recommend.
