SunnyFive Lamp Imitates Sunlight

The development of the SunnyFive startup, which created a lamp that mimics an ordinary window and emits a luminous flux in a spectrum similar to the spectrum of natural sunlight, will help solve the problem of the influence of artificial lighting on a person. The effectiveness of SunnyFive’s development is confirmed by the support the project has gained from Samsung C-Labs startup incubator.

SunnyFive products are known to have characteristics similar to lamps used in light therapy to treat depressive mood-related seasonal affective disorder (SAD), which leads to sleep disturbances and general psychological exhaustion caused by sunlight deficiency. SunnyFive lamps solve this problem by emitting light in a full range of natural light. In addition, the fixtures are developed in a design similar to standard apartment windows.

Another advantage of SunnyFive lamps is the ability to program illumination, which allows you to simulate a change in the angle of incidence of sunlight when changing the time of day. Artificial SunnyFive windows will even create a feeling of morning sunrise, daylight, sunset and twilight in a room completely closed to the sun. Using a special application that changes color temperature and brightness will allow you to simulate the changing seasons. Also, the function of a gentle alarm clock is easily integrated into the lamps.

Samsung sees wide prospects of the project and states that the technology used in SunnyFive fixtures allows a person to synthesize vitamin D without even going out into the open space illuminated by the sun. In addition, the light from SunnyFive lamps does not harm health, does not cause sunburn and does not provoke skin diseases and premature aging. According to Samsung representatives, the lamps will be integrated into the SmartThings proprietary intelligent system.

The use of SunnyFive lamps is especially important at the present time, when the coronavirus pandemic requires reducing the time spent outdoors to comply with the social isolation regime. The use of SunnyFive will reduce the negative psychological load and make self-isolation more comfortable. Also, the use of SunnyFive windows will be useful for installation in the Doomsday bunkers, which are equipped by supporters of the theory of an impending global catastrophe.
