We know light enables vision, it helps us navigate our surroundings and makes us feel safe. But light can do so much more. It has the power to energize, relax, increase alertness or cognitive performance and mood, and to improve the sleep-wake cycle of people.

#BetterLighting, whether we are at home, in our school or offices or on the street, is about having the right light, at the right time, and in the right place. #BetterLighting is made possible with the right combination of daylight and electric lighting in a building and is enabled by lighting systems. Intelligent lighting systems have opened a new world of opportunities, allowing for instance lighting management capabilities and dynamic light.

They provide the means to adjust the lit environment to suit our visual and biological needs, therefore enabling Human-Centric lighting, while at the same time reducing energy consumption.
