With the unwavering support of their clients, partners, and dedicated team, Light Link is ready to embrace the future, illuminating spaces and lives with their unparalleled brilliance.
Jaspal Bal, Founder of Light Link, shares: “At Light Link we’ve been a big advocate of Human Centric Lighting (HCL) and Smart Lighting Control Systems for some time, and we’d like to see more uptake with such technologies on projects moving forward – Humans are affected by light not only on a visual level, but also on a biological one. When installing a Human Centric Lighting solution (HCL), you reinforce your circadian rhythm, enhancing your cognitive skills and sense of wellbeing. You perform better, you sleep better, you feel better.”
AT LIGHT LINK WE’VE BEEN A BIG ADVOCATE OF HUMAN CENTRIC LIGHTING AND SMART LIGHTING CONTROL SYSTEMS FOR SOME TIME , AND WE ’D LIKE TO SEE MORE UPTAKE WITH SUCH TECHNOLOGIES ON PROJECTS MOVING FORWARD.
Bal continues: “We can combine tuneable light fittings to a smart control system, that can be synced with the celestial clock and/ or utilise the amount of daylight in spaces to adjust the artificial lighting output, maintaining a consistent and correct level of both light output and colour temperature to ensure a balanced and comfortable environment for users. However, there is a stigma attached to the perceived cost of such solutions, which we need to remove through education and upscaling our client’s knowledge on the benefits of such systems. We often see lighting control packages targeted for ‘VE savings’, either being downscaled or completely removed, in turn removing numerous levels of function and comfort of the end-user, it is no longer purely an energy saving tool, it is far more important.”
