CEDIA released a new white paper focused on human-centric lighting. “Quality of Light in the Home” includes a deep dive into the effects of indoor lighting and color temperature and their considerations for designers and installers.
“Human-centric lighting is an area that we are seeing rapid progress from a technology standpoint,” said Walt Zerbe, senior director of technology and standards. “This white paper provides a great baseline for integrators to get familiar with the topic and to be able to talk to their clients about it.”
The white paper covers topics including the benefits and challenges of human-centric lighting technology, consumers’ personal control, wellness considerations for the end users, and installation implications. The new white paper continues the global association’s strategic focus on distilling complex and ever-changing technologies into more digestible formats for home technology professionals.

CEDIA volunteer Sam Woodward, a subject matter expert on lighting who serves as customer education leader for Lutron in London, previewed the new paper in a recent CEDIA Tech Council Podcast. “As we’re now spending so much time indoors, we need to think about the way of making that environment as conducive to productivity, well-being, and good health as possible,” Woodward said in the episode titled All About Lighting. “So, human-centric lighting is all about people.”
“Quality of Light in the Home” is available for CEDIA members to download at no cost in the resource library and on the CEDIA Online Community. White papers can be purchased by non-members for $99 at cedia.net.
