As humans, we evolved with the changing rhythm of darkness and light. We rose when the light first broke the horizon and retired when night fell, nestled by the fire for warmth. Our bodies adapted to this changing light, creating energizing hormones when sunlight first entered our eyes and producing relaxing and sleep-inducing hormones when evening approached.
As we and technology advanced, we were awarded the grace of a 24/7 lifestyle with lights that illuminate our spaces no matter the time of day. Today, the EPA estimates that people spend about 90% of their time indoors. Unfortunately, this lack of natural light affects our internal time clock (or circadian rhythm) that's been set for eons to light and darkness.
Fortunately, circadian or human-centric lighting can help create an environment that restores our internal biological rhythms. Let’s explore what this smart home lighting solution brings to homes in Yuma, AZ.

At Wow Electronics, we provide customized technology that’s easy to use and makes life more convenient and enjoyable while enhancing your well-being. To accomplish this, we partner with Crestron and Lutron, global leaders in home automation and lighting control.
In 2022, Crestron introduced their new line of tunable LED light fixtures that support wellness in your home. By utilizing Crestron’s SolarSync sensor, the system automatically matches your interior lighting to the natural light outside.
This lighting can be effortlessly controlled through the Crestron Home platform. In addition to matching natural lights, these full-spectrum LED lights offer every imaginable hue and intensity, enabling you to change the mood with the touch of a button.
Our certified technicians will program scenes, making it effortless to select your individual preferences. These may include a ‘Relaxing’ scene, which sets the lights to colors found in the tropical seas, or ‘Wellness,' which turns on the circadian rhythm lighting.
Light affects every aspect of our being, changing our moods, level of creativity, and sleep-wake cycles. With circadian lighting, you wake to lights resembling dawn's soft blue illumination. As the day progresses, the lights transform, taking on a brighter white light midday. By day’s end, they settle into a warm amber glow of a setting sun.
This form of natural light increases your energy during the day, optimizing productivity. In the evening, it promotes rest and relaxation, realigning your internal time clock and supporting your sleep-wake cycle.
