Lighting Science Awarded Two Product Innovation Awards by Architectural SSL Magazine

MyNature Grow and Awake & Alert LED lights Credited for Biological Benefits

SATELLITE BEACH, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb. 24, 2014– Lighting Science, a leader in LED lighting technology, has received awards for two of its recently introduced biological LED light bulbs. The MyNature Grow and the Awake & Alertbulbs were both recognized in the Retrofit Lamp Sources category, in Architectural SSL magazine’s fourth annual Product Innovation Awards (PIA) competition.

“We are extremely pleased that our research and product development in the emerging field of biological lighting has been recognized and appreciated by the LED lighting community,” said Sean Tegart, Vice President of Lighting Science. “Lighting Science is committed to innovating new products that are optimized for human and environmental health, and this distinction is a both a credit to our team’s efforts and an encouragement to continue pursuing a better lighting standard.”

The MyNature Grow broad spectrum LED lamp is a spectrally optimized retrofit solution for bio-agricultural applications in the home. The lamp is optimized to deliver the photosynthetically-active radiation (PAR) necessary to maximize a plant’s growth while providing a crisp white working light. The lamps can be effectively utilized to grow, flower or fruit any plant.

The Awake & Alert LED is designed to benefit the occupants of indoor environments by promoting alertness in a standard BR30 form factor. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), people in the United States spend an average of 90% of their time indoors under artificial light, which lacks those wavelengths of light needed for ideal human function, including the production of natural hormones. Using the Awake & Alert light at the appropriate times can supplement exposure to the blue light spectrum, strengthening the body’s circadian rhythm, and increasing alertness and performance.

The Architectural SSL Magazine Product Innovation Awards is now in its fourth year. According to Jim Crockett Editor for Architectural SSL Magazine, “I noticed a definitive maturation — even specialization — of the products being submitted. Clearly, manufacturers of light sources using solid state LED lighting are starting to get a firm handle on what the market wants, and are producing products to meet that demand; conversely, they’re also identifying niches where SSL-powered light sources can fill a vacuum in the market.”
