Today's indoor lighting is static, as if the sun were fixed in the sky. This is unnatural and has significant implications to our sleep, mood, immune system, weight management, and overall well-being.
Ario’s high-performance LEDs provide bright, 2400 lumen output and a wide color range, from 6500K blue-rich light (mid-day sun) to 1800K amber light (candle/fire light).
Ario provides a natural way to wake up when you want to, with gently increasing light.
Ario provides blue-rich light, energizing you like a sunny day while working at home.
Ario's calming amber light creates a relaxing atmosphere.
Ario's downward-directed light prepares you for sleep. Ario can turn itself off or act as a nightlight that won't disturb sleep.
MOBILE & WEB ACCESS
Everything the physical controls do and more! You are in control of how to start and live your day.
DIRECTIONAL & COLOR CONTROLS
Two light engines, one facing up, one facing down, a purpose-built highly-integrated LED controller, and an advanced processor power Ario.
FREE-STANDING & MODULAR DESIGNS
Ario is a beautifully polished, autonomous system, configurable as either a floor or desk/table lamp.
AUTONOMOUS, EASY CONTROL
Ario’s real-time clock and non-volatile storage automatically adjust color and direction, even after loss of power or WiFi. You can control Ario via physical buttons, wall switch, or the Ario app on your phone, tablet, or PC.
EFFICIENCY & LONGEVITY
Ario’s solid-state LEDs use only 1/5 the energy of equivalent incandescent lights. Ario’s state-of-the-art LEDs and heat sink deliver >35,000 hours of life.
Decades of research from Harvard Medical School, NASA, and leading institutions around the world have revealed a great deal of information about how light impacts and regulates our health. We designed Ario based on this large body of knowledge and on recommendations of the National Institute of Health and American Medical Association. Here is a summary.
Our body learns what time it is from light in our environment. Non-visual photoreceptors in our eyes, discovered fairly recently, are sensitive to changing levels of blue light from above. These receptors provide signals to the suprachiasmatic nucleus (SCN), a tiny region located in the hypothalamus responsible for controlling our circadian rhythm, or body clock. This in turn influences the production of hormones regulating bodily process.
Today’s static artificial lights throw off our body clock by as much as three hours. While we don’t perceive this directly, this changes the balance of our endocrine system, generally reducing levels of body process regulating hormones both day and night. These changes to our basic physiology affect our metabolism which in turn impacts our sleep, behavior, mood, and general health.
Medical and lighting professionals recommend the following to promote healthy circadian rhythm, restful sleep, and overall well-being. Ario is designed to deliver what is recommended:

How does Ario work?
By adjusting its color and light direction, Ario mimics the natural light dark cycle our bodies evolved to expect. Your eyes contain non-visual photo receptors sensitive to blue light from above that help cue your body’s natural circadian rhythm. By day, Ario delivers blue rich light from top and bottom to synchronize circadian rhythm, and help make your mind and body alert. At night, Ario delivers warm light with virtually no blue, in a downward direction. This allows you to see well without disturbing your body’s natural production of melatonin.
What is unique about Ario?
Ario is the only lamp that fully supports circadian rhythm. With a unique combination of features, Ario automatically changes direction of light delivery and color over a wide range of controlled blue output. It includes a real-time clock and stored program to always light with the right color and direction of light. Ario is also brighter than consumer smart bulbs.
What contributes to the cost of the lamp?
The lamp includes the full fixture, two light sources, processor, real-time clock, and web app which allows you to customize your schedule. Considering it would take two bulbs, we compare favorably to smart bulbs that are 1/3 the brightness and cost $70-100/each. The lamp is also well made to last as long as the light sources.
