Legrand‘s Building Control Systems (BCS) division introduces Vantage LHUMAN, a dynamic new human centric lighting (HCL) system for the residential market. By incorporating lighting controls, motorized shading, and color-tunable light fixtures, LHUMAN harnesses natural light when it’s available and renders it artificially when it’s not, improving the physical, emotional, and mental well-being of occupants. This also comes as Vantage introduces the latest version of its programming software for integrators: Design Center 4.2.
How the LHUMAN System Works
Vantage lighting control sits at the core of the LHUMAN system. This way, LHUMAN does the work for homeowners — automatically adjusting their home’s light throughout the day— while making it easy for them making changes on the fly with pre-set scenes that to meet their current activity, need, or mood. All it takes is the touch of a button on the Vantage touchscreen or modular keypad.
LHUMAN also takes advantage of motorized window shades, which allow users to take full control of natural lighting as well. By integrating the shading system with Vantage lighting control, shades can be programmed to automatically raise and lower at any time of the day, or controlled by users with the same touchscreens and keypads as their lighting.
“The LHUMAN system is designed to put the natural lighting cycle in the control of homeowners, allowing them to easily replicate it indoors and on their schedule,” said Charlie Derk, director of product marketing, shading and residential controls, Legrand North America. “For dealers, our new Design Center software simplifies programming even further and introduces new levels of flexibility. And to fulfill our mission of delivering complete freedom in lighting design, we’re collaborating with leading light fixture manufacturers so dealers can be confident that no matter what fixture they choose, they will work together seamlessly.”
Additionally, the new release comes replete with new color load types, including warm/cool and warm/white/cool; new tunable profiles for fixture color loads; single-digit CCT value input; and enhanced security improvements.
