Every client we work with has a different reason they want to integrate smart home technology. In the past, this has included a yearning for greater security or more immersive entertainment. Getting a more streamlined approach to technology, both in aesthetics and functionality, is another common motivation. Health usually has not been part of that conversation, but that may be about to change.
Recently, technology has emerged that improves homeowner wellness and health in various ways. How exactly does it achieve this in your Naperville, IL, home? This blog highlights three technology innovations from our partners Delos that put wellness at the forefront.

How many hours do you spend indoors every day? Whether it’s relaxing at home or working at the office, it’s estimated that people usually spend 90 percent of the day indoors. During that time, you’re relying on one-tone artificial lighting while probably staring at a computer screen for hours. Exposure to certain types of lights for long periods can negatively affect your melatonin levels.
Daylight is vital to regulating your circadian rhythm, which in turn affects your sleep cycles and wellbeing. You can now integrate circadian lighting, also known as human-centric lighting, to simulate sunlight throughout the day. Employ tunable lighting fixtures that change color temperature for cooler hues in the morning and warmer ones at night. While the former stimulates activity, the latter helps you relax at the end of the day.
Relish in an automated lighting solution that schedules these changes throughout the day. Set specific lighting scenes for when you want to relax, concentrate or wake up. Activate them through a simple button press or voice command when needed.
Being inside for most of the day has another drawback: dealing with poor indoor air quality. Even the smallest, ultrafine particles can cause allergies, lethargy, and breathing issues. Get rid of 99.99 percent of air particles, including allergens, dust mites, mold, and mildew, with an air purification system from Delos. These systems use dilution to circulate fresh air throughout the home. Since this air comes through lock-tight filtration, you don’t have to worry about bringing new pollutants into your home.
NSF-certified water purification systems from Delos offer pristine water at your fingertips. Unfiltered drinking or bathing water could not only leave a bad taste in your mouth but pose serious health risks as well. Hydrate and heal more efficiently with purification systems that remove EPA contaminates, lead, arsenic, bacteria and microbes from your water. Employ Delos' high-end methods, so you don't have to deal with regular filter replacements or bottled water cluttering up your home. These water purification systems go directly on your sinks, baths and showers and produce very little waste.
Bring all these solutions together with DARWIN: the first home wellness software from Delos. DARWIN monitors and responds to conditions inside your home to better nurture your family’s health. It even incorporates your other smart home technology to boost your wellbeing.
For example, if air sensors detect additional pollutants in the kitchen while you cook, DARWIN can direct your smart home system to turn on the HVAC system fan to improve the flow of air. Through DARWIN’s software, you’ll be able to monitor air quality, schedule wellness scenes to automatically adjust lighting and temperature, and more from one digital dashboard.
