Circadian lighting is helping children with autism sleep better and transition easier between activities at home.

SMUD experts installed circadian lighting technology in a classroom for children with autism at Gold Ridge Elementary School. Read this exciting report on the impact of this new system which teachers said helped them teach more effectively.

SMUD experts installed circadian lighting technology in the ACC Care center nursing home. As a result of the improved lighting system slip and fall incidents were greatly reduced, residents slept better, and some were even able to reduce their medications.
