project focus: WHIT Home

WHIT Home, created by Lake Nona Institute, is an innovative healthy home, termed a ‘living laboratory’ that engages residents in habitual health and wellness through innovation, technology and research, designed to seamlessly integrate into daily routines and comfortable living spaces.  WHIT House integrates wellness-oriented building practices (such as careful consideration of construction materials) with technologies that foster healthier environments, resulting in living spaces that immerse occupants in a nourishing atmosphere of health.

The WHIT Home showcases numerous features that coalesce lighting technologies with function beyond illumination.  Healthe’s SunTrac™ A19 demonstrates how easy and functional circadian lighting can be.  SunTrac uses the functionality of commonplace E26 A19 bulbs, and adds complex science and technology to bring innovative, healthy lighting into ordinary spaces.  The familiarity of the E26 based lamp makes access to circadian lighting a complete breeze, and WHIT House demonstrates how subtle and easy access to healthier living spaces through light can be, by simply installing SunTrac in bedside lamps. 

Healthe’s Good Day&Night® Downlight is a sophisticated addition to the WHIT House’s overhead lighting and supports a healthy sleep/wake cycle, while providing beautiful, high acuity lighting to living spaces.  The use of Healthe’s SunLync™ Wireless Control Device further simplifies healthy lighting, by automating the biological lighting of the downlights and A19s, so occupants are exposed to the right light at the right time throughout the day, without having to manually set the spectral output and intensity.  SunLync performs with subtlety, making spectral transitions imperceptible to occupants.

The WHIT House is using science-based technologies to improve and prioritize health around the home, creating a place to relax, breathe, sleep and live better.  Healthe is proud to partner with WHIT House and provide lighting solutions that combine our need for illumination with a desire to move us toward improved daily health and wellness.
