Tunable Lighting

Color tuning and circadian settings.

Color Tuning

Define baselines for tunable lights. Baselines are the desired color and temperature for the tunable fixtures when the lights turn on.

There are two types of baseline settings:

  • Local: Local baseline settings are applied only to the fixture group.
  • Global: Global baseline settings are applied to all fixtures in the system (house).

To configure the baseline settings, go to Advanced Settings > Color tuning.

Define Baseline Settings

To set the baseline settings:

  1. In the Tunable Lighting menu, select Color tuning.

  2. Select or deselect Use global baseline settings. The lights will adjust to display the applicable baseline settings and the app will display the corresponding settings. The screen may switch to the tunable white or full color tuning tab.

    Notes:

    • The setting the local or global baseline function will be saved without a prompt when exiting the Color tuning menu if Use global baseline settings is selected or deselected and no other changes are made.
    • The Set all lights in this room to use these settings option applies the current settings to the other light groups in the room but it does not save the settings. The previous settings are restored when the lights are turned off and then on again. To save the settings for other light groups, open the baseline settings for the other light groups and save their current settings.
  3. Select  Tunable white or  Full color tuning and then configure the baseline.

    • Tunable white baseline:

      • Color temperature: Select Color temperature to assign a default color temperature for the lights. Use the slider to set the color temperature for the lights.

      • Warm dim: Select Warm dim to assign the warm dim function for the lights. When Warm dim is selected, the color temperature of the lights adjusts based on their intensity levels which replicates the effect of incandescent and halogen lights. When the LED intensity is reduced (dimmed), the lights display a warmer color temperature and when the intensity is increased the lights display a cooler color temperature.

    • Full color tuning baseline:

      • Hue: Use the slider to set the hue for the lights.

      • Saturation: Use the slider to set the saturation for the lights.

      • Color temperature: Use the slider to set the color temperature for the lights.

  4. Select Save or Save as global baseline settings.

Lock Adjustments

Allow or disallow changes to the color attributes by changing the permissions for the selected light.

To set the permissions, select  Menu and then Fixed or Adjustable.

  • Fixed: The settings cannot be changed. Scenes cannot update to use different colors. Controls do not display hue, saturation, or color temperature

  • Adjustable: The settings can be changed.

Circadian Settings

Use the Circadian Lighting settings to configure the Morning, Day, Evening, and Night circadian transition points for lights in the system.

To configure the circadian lighting settings, in the Tunable Lighting menu select Circadian settings.

Set the Circadian Light Mode

When a light is included in the Circadian lighting function, the Circadian scene is added to the room with the dimmer.

Note: The circadian light mode setting applies to all transition points for the lights.

To set the circadian light mode:

  1. Select the current mode for the light. The mode is displayed on the button next to the name of the light.

  2. Select the Circadian Light Mode:

    • Color temp + Intensity: The light changes the color temperature and intensity when Circadian mode is active. This option is available only for tunable lights. To set the light intensity, refer to Set the Light Intensity. To set the color temperature, refer to Set the Transition Time and Color Temperature.

    • Intensity: The light changes intensity when Circadian mode is active. To set the light intensity, refer to Set the Light Intensity.

    • Exclude: The light is not controlled when Circadian mode is active.

      Note: Lights without color tuning capabilities are excluded from the Circadian lighting functions by default.

  3. Select OK.
  4. Select Save current settings as Circadian cycle.

Set the Light Intensity

Set the light intensity for the Morning, Day, Evening, and Night transition points.

To set the intensity for the transition points:

  1. Select the  Morning,  Day,  Evening, or  Night circadian transition point.

  2. For each circadian transition point, use the slider to set the intensity.

  3. Select Save current settings as Circadian cycle.

Set the Transition Time and Color Temperature

Set the time and color temperature for the Morning, Day, Evening, and Night transition points.

To set the time and color temperature for the transition points:

  1. Select  Circadian Lighting Settings.

  2. Select the  Morning,  Day,  Evening, or  Night circadian transition point.

  3. For each circadian transition point, set the start time and color temperature:

    • Set Start Time: Select the start time for the transition point.
    • Set Color Temperature: Use the slider to set the color temperature for the lights.

      Note: When the SolarSync® scene is active, the color temperature from the GLS-LCCT sensor will be used instead of the value set in this field.

  4. Select  Back.
  5. To save, select  Back on the Edit Circadian screen and then select Save current settings as Circadian cycle.

Preview the Circadian Cycle

To preview the circadian cycle, select Preview Circadian Cycle. The lights will cycle through the Morning, Day, Evening, and Night transition points. The duration of the preview is 30 seconds. To end the preview, select End Circadian Preview.
