PhotonStar launches circadian retrofit lamp

9th November, 2013

A prototype of a wireless LED lamp with adjustable colour temperatures that change throughout the day, echoing the changes in intensity and colour of daylight, has been launched by PhotonStar.

The Halcyon lamp incorporates the company’s ChromaWhite colour tuning technology and was developed with the help of an Energy Entrepreneurs grant from the Department for Energy and Climate Change. As reported in Lighting in May, PhotonStar received funding of £372,269 as part of a £16 million government initiative intended to help bring innovative low carbon products to market.

The company claims Halcyon will be the first retrofit home circadian lighting system. The product’s lighting server automatically controls the lamp to deliver the right light at the right time of the day and helps to minimise energy usage by switching lights off when they are not needed.  It can be wirelessly controlled using a Wi-Fi tablet or smart phone.

The company is now calling on people to help to fund the development of the finished product by backing the innovation on the crowd funding website Kickstarter.
