To achieve smart color tuning for human centric lighting, fixture makers will combine CSPs of cool and warm color temperatures and use a simple control scheme.
Property managers should ask themselves some key questions before updating or installing a recessed product: Is it important to have different color temperatures and light outputs in various rooms; will that change by room?
"With solid state lighting, it's possible to create LEDs with different color temperatures and corresponding spectral power distributions (a better measure than color temperature, but harder to grasp) anywhere from 2200K to 7000K," explains Bob Karlicek, Director of Lighting Enabled Systems & Applications (LESA), a National Science Foundation engineering research center at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
