The Largest Nordic Circadian Lighting Project, 120 residences


In the Municipality of Silkeborg, we started construction of Full Dynamic Circadian Lighting in 120 assisted living facilities and associated common- and staff areas. The project is the biggest Nordic care center with circadian lighting and possibly the biggest in the world.


LIGHTCARE has a video, which shows our installation, its full colour range, and its user-friendly operating system. Additionally, we show the use of our new concept “Personal Lighting”. Enjoy the full dynamic circadian lighting of LIGHTCARE.

The installation is a result of a innovative pilot project in co-operation with the Municipality of Silkeborg and other innovative companies within this area.


The pilot project consisted of “The Future Assisted Living Facility”, where several companies showed their version of innovative welfare technology for the elderly care. Full Dynamic Circadian Lighting was here a part of the project with a light protocol stimulating the circadian rhythm, light for work-specific scenarios and emergency light with call function. The purpose was here to create a better solution that stimulates the elderly person's circadian rhythm, based on individual needs including any sleep problems and visual disabilities, with a wide range of products to create home-like, and quiet surroundings.


In relation to the project, the Municipality of Silkeborg and Else Marie Jensen(Senior Consultant for welfare technology), have made a video of the solution in the care home, where she talks about the Sensormatic emergency function:

 The fully automatic light protocol is boosting with the most effective wavelengths of light, so the brain continues to produce "the happiness hormone" serotonin as research shows that it has an effect in relation to eg. Seasonal Affective Disorder and regulating our circadian rhythm. In the evening and at night the strength, the wavelength and the colour temperature are regulated to make the body produce the vital "sleep hormone" melatonin, which is produced during proper and stable sleep.


The TV channels TV2 East Jutland and TV MidtVest have mentioned experimental dwelling in the media several times, as both have had visitors from the US and China with a focus on modern welfare technology for elderly care.
