Most of our customers that measure light consider it to answer one of two questions: (1) Is there sufficient light to perform a task, or (2) Is there sufficient light to prevent slips, trips, or falls, and to allow for safe exit in emergencies.
But with new light technologies comes new concerns: How does light quality affect people? How can knowledge of light’s physiological effects on people to create environments that encourage effectiveness in workplaces and schools? How do specific light bulbs, light fixtures and settings affect energy consumption?
